Drug Interactions Increased levels with disulfiram and probenecid. Decreased effects with tetracyclines and chloramphenicol.
Potentially Fatal: Increase effects of oral anticoagulants.

Pregnancy Category (US FDA) Category B: Either animal-reproduction studies have not demonstrated a foetal risk but there are no controlled studies in pregnant women or animal-reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect (other than a decrease in fertility) that was not confirmed in controlled studies in women in the 1st trimester (and there is no evidence of a risk in later trimesters).
Storage Intravenous: Store at 20-25°C. Parenteral: Store at 20-25°C.
Pharmacology Amoxicillin inhibits the final transpeptidation step of peptidoglycan synthesis in bacterial cell wall by binding to one or more of the penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs), thus inhibiting cell wall biosynthesis resulting in bacterial lysis.
Absorption: Rapidly and completely absorbed from the GI tract with peak plasma concentrations after 1-2 hr (oral). Not inactivated by gastric acid and presence of food does not impair absorption.
Distribution: Widely distributed, CSF (small concentrations except when the meninges are inflamed), bile (high concentrations); crosses the placenta and enters the breast milk (small amounts). Protein-binding: 20%.
Metabolism: Converted to a limited extent to penicilloic acid.
Excretion: Via the urine within 6 hr by glomerular filtration and tubular secretion (as penicilloic acid and 60% unchanged drug); via the faeces. May be removed by haemodialysis; 1-1.5 hr (elimination half-life).
ATC Classification J01CA04 - amoxicillin; Belongs to the class of penicillins with extended spectrum. Used in the treatment of systemic infections.

Why is Amoxicillin prescribed?

Amoxicillin is used to treat certain infections caused by bacteria, such as pneumonia; bronchitis; gonorrhea; and infections of the ears, nose, throat, urinary tract, and skin. It is also used in combination with other medications to eliminate H. pylori, a bacteria that causes ulcers. Amoxicillin is in a class of medications called penicillin-like antibiotics. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Antibiotics will not work for colds, flu, and other viral infections.

How should Amoxicillin be used?

Amoxicillin comes as a capsule, a tablet, a chewable tablet, a suspension (liquid), and pediatric drops to take by mouth. It is usually taken every 12 hours (twice a day) or every 8 hours (three times a day) with or without food. To help you remember to take amoxicillin, take it around the same time every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take amoxicillin exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Shake the liquid and pediatric drops well before each use to mix the medication evenly. Use the bottle dropper to measure the dose of pediatric drops. The pediatric drops and liquid may be placed on a child's tongue or added to formula, milk, fruit juice, water, ginger ale, or other cold liquid and taken immediately.

The chewable tablets should be crushed or chewed thoroughly before they are swallowed. The tablets and capsules should be swallowed whole and taken with a full glass of water.

Take amoxicillin until you finish the prescription, even if you feel better. Stopping amoxicillin too soon may cause bacteria to become resistant to antibiotics.

Other uses for Amoxicillin

Amoxicillin also is used sometimes to prevent anthrax infection after exposure and to treat anthrax infection of the skin and chlamydia infections during pregnancy. Talk with your doctor about the possible risks of using Amoxicillin for your condition.

Amoxicillin may be prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

What special precautions to follow?

Before taking amoxicillin,
  • inform your doctor if you are allergic to amoxicillin, penicillin, cephalosporins, or any other medications.
  • inform your doctor what prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking. Be sure to mention any of the following: chloramphenicol (Chlormycetin), other antibiotics, and probenecid. Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side effects.
  • inform your doctor if you have or have ever had kidney disease, allergies, asthma, hay fever, hives, or phenylketonuria.
  • inform your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding. If you become pregnant while taking amoxicillin, call your doctor.

What special dietary instructions to follow?

Unless your doctor informs you otherwise, continue your normal diet.

What to do if I forget a dose?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.

What side effects can Amoxicillin cause?

Amoxicillin may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:
  • upset stomach

  • vomiting

  • diarrhea

Some side effects can be serious. The following symptoms are uncommon, but if you experience any of them, consult your doctor immediately:
  • severe skin rash

  • hives

  • seizures

  • yellowing of the skin or eyes

  • unusual bleeding or bruising

  • pale skin

  • excessive tiredness

  • lack of energy

Amoxicillin may cause other side effects. Call your doctor if you have any unusual problems while taking Amoxicillin. 

What other information to know?

Keep all appointments with your doctor and the laboratory. Your doctor will order certain lab tests to check your response to Amoxicillin.

Do not let anyone else use your medication. If you still have symptoms and need further treatment, consult your doctor.

It is important for you to keep a written list of all of the prescription and nonprescription (over-the-counter) medicines you are taking, as well as any products such as vitamins, minerals, or other dietary supplements. You should bring this list with you each time you visit a doctor or if you are admitted to a hospital. It is also important information to carry with you in case of emergencies.
