    What does Amoxicillin treat?

    Amoxicillin is a penicillin antibiotic and is highly effective in treating a wide variety of bacterial infections such as gonorrhea, pneumonia, E. coli, infection, bladder infection, skin infections and ear infection. This happens to be the first line treatment for middle ear infections. This is also used in the treatment of ulcers in conjunction with other drugs. This may be used in other treatments based on the decision of your physician.

    Dosage Instructions

    Follow the Amoxycillin dosage prescribed by your physician. The dosage could vary based on individual patient requirements.

    Amoxycillin is an oral medication to be consumed with a full glass of water. This can be taken along with food or on an empty stomach. Take this at the same time every day.

    Missed a dose?

    Take it immediately once you remember. In case, this time is closer to the next dosage, skip it and get back to the prescribed schedule. As far as possible, take care to see that you do not forget a dose as this can make you prone to further infection resistant to antibiotics.


    Don’t waste any time and seek immediate medical attention. Some of the key symptoms of overdosing on Amoxicillin are nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach cramps, confusion, severe skin rash and even seizures.

    Drug Interactions

    Drug interactions have to be considered before starting to take any kind of drug. Drug interactions might happen either when Amoxycillin is taken along with another drug or with particular foods. To prevent any kind of negative interaction, make sure you inform your doctor of any drugs you are taking including OTCs, vitamins, minerals, herbal medicine and so on.

    Amoxicillin interacts with medicines like: 

    • Chloramphenicol 
    • Erythromycin 
    • Tetracycline 

    It may also interact with oral contraceptives, certain antibiotics and sulfa drugs. You must also inform your doctor if you smoke, take alcohol or caffeinated drinks or use illegal drugs. The list above is not exhaustive and drugs other than those could also interact with Amoxicillin.

    Appraise your doctor of any medical conditions that you are suffering from such as allergies, asthma, bleeding disorder, liver or kidney diseases and your family history of medical ailments. It’s also very important to let your doctor know if you are pregnant or in case you are likely to become pregnant during the course of treatment with Amoxycillin. Amoxicillin has been known to make birth control pills less effective. Make sure you consult your doctor about non-hormonal methods of birth control such as condoms and diaphragm with spermicide to prevent pregnancy during the course of this medicine. It’s important that you do not stop or start taking any medicine without the consent of your physician.

    Possible Side Effects

    Amoxicillin does not have any major side effects and if any they are minor and temporary. In rare cases, there might be major side effects and immediate medical attention must be sought.

    Some of the side effects that might occur are anxiety, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, headache, stomach pain, dizziness and diarrhea. The rare and serious side effects of this drug are hives, jaundice, fever, liver problems, dark urine, seizures, and clay-colored stools. This is not an exhaustive list of all side effects.

    In case, there is a change in intensity of side effects or if any new side effects develop, make sure you consult your doctor.

    What to ask your doctor before you start on Amoxicillin

    • Can I take Amoxicillin along with other drugs? 
    • Are there certain foods, beverages and products to be avoided while on Amoxicillin? 
    • What is the dosage of Amoxicillin to be consumed? 
    • How should I use Amoxicillin? 
    • How will Amoxicillin work on my body?

    Replied by Pharmacist @ IDM
    An ampicillin, amoxicillin, or Augmentin rash is a non-allergic rash that occurs when a child is taking one of these medicines. The rash usually appears on the 5th day after the child starts taking the medicine, but may appear earlier or as late as the 16th day.Symptoms of the rash include:Pink or red spots,Small, flat, nonitchy spots,Always on the main body (trunk),May spread to the face.5% to 10% of children taking ampicillin or amoxicillin get a skin rash. This is a harmless rash and does not mean that your child has an allergy to ampicillin, amoxicillin, or other penicillin drugs. An allergic reaction would cause hives or more severe symptoms than a rash. Often it is caused by a viral infection such as Roseola.

    Recommended dosage is Amoxicillin 500 mg, one tablet orally 3 times a day,but still I would suggest you to please get confirmation from your physician since your physician would prescribe you the exact dosage based on the infection.
