    My experience of antibiotics is when I have had a very bad flu or something like that. Usually they start to kick in after about 2 or 3 days.

    It can take a couple days but no more than that.

    It varies. In my experience, you would start to feel an effect after about 3 days but for some infections, like a UTI, the effect may be apparent sooner. That doesn't necessarily mean they have finished doing their job so we should always finish the prescribed course of antibiotics.

    Right after you take them but you won't be able to feel the effects for 2 days at least.
