How is amphotericin B taken?

Amphotericin B is administered through an intravenous solution that will drip for about two to six hours either once a day or every other day, depending on how severe your infection is. The solution drips through a needle or catheter placed in your vein. Be sure to use amphotericin B exactly as your health care provider has directed. Do not change the dose or skip a dose because your fungal infection could get worse.
