Indications of Amoxicillin
Amoxicillin is essentially used for the treatment of infections that have been caused by bacteria. The drug could also be used along with other medications for the treatment of H. pylori infection as well as ulcers in the small intestines.
A penicillin antibiotic, amoxicillin functions by killing sensitive bacteria.
When Not To Use Amoxicillin
Amoxicillin should not be used if: you have had any allergic reactions to any ingredient found in amoxicillin or in any other penicillin antibiotics like ampicillin; you have received or would be receiving the live oral typhoid vaccination.
Administration of Amoxicillin
Amoxicillin should always be used as directed by your physician. Also check the medicine label to know the exact instructions for the dosage. There is also an extra patient leaflet that comes along with amoxicillin. Make sure to ask your pharmacist any questions regarding the information that has just been given.
Amoxicillin could be taken orally in a full or an empty stomach. If you experience stomach upset, you could take the medication so that stomach irritation would be reduced. Amoxicillin should not be swallowed in whole or chewed.
Amoxicillin should be placed in 2 teaspoons or 10 milliliters of water only and not any other liquid. Stir or swirl up until the tablet has already been completely mixed and the mixture should be consumed immediately after mixing. Also, rinse the container of the mixture with a small amount of water to drink so that you would be sure that the medication has been taken completely.
In order to completely clear up an infection, amoxicillin should be taken for the entire course of the treatment. It should be taken continuously even if you already feel better ina couple of days.
If ever a dose of Amoxicillin is missed, it should be taken immediately. But if ever it is already time for the next dose to be taken, the missed dose could just be skipped so that you could go back to your regular schedule of doses. Two doses of amoxicillin should never be taken at once.
You need to ask your doctor or physician any questions that you have on how to take amoxicillin.
Important Safety Information on Amoxicillin
Amoxicillin could cause dizziness, which could be worsened if the drug is consumed with alcohol or some other medicines. Amoxicillin should also be used with caution. Until you already know how you would be reacting to the medicine, you should not drive or do any other unsafe tasks.
Also, amoxicillin works just against bacteria and does not serve as a treatment for viral infections like the flu or a common cold.
Make sure that you would be taking amoxicillin for the entire course of the recommended treatment. This is because if you do not, your infection might not be completely treated. Also, the bacteria might become less sensitive to the drug or to other medications, making the infection even harder to treat later on.
