Amoxicillin is a penicillin antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections, including bronchitis, pneumonia, and infections of the ear, nose, throat, skin, and urinary tract. Though it can be highly effective in treating bacterial infections, it also comes with a list of potential side effects even in those who aren’t allergic to it. Allergies aren’t always the reason for a negative reaction to a drug. Though it may seem like an allergic reaction, it is really a nonallergic adverse reaction. The most common causes of nonallergic adverse reactions are anticonvulsants, aspirin and NSAIDS, vaccines, diabetes meds, and chemotherapeutic agents. Mild allergic reactions include skin rash, itching, and hives. Mild allergic reactions aren’t too worrisome on their own but should be observed in case symptoms worsen. Mild symptoms can be treated with antihistamines and hydrocortisone. It's used to treat bacterial infections, such as chest infections (including pneumonia), dental abscesses and urinary tract infections (UTIs). It's used in children, often to treat ear infections and chest infections. It comes as capsules or as a liquid that you drink. It's also given by injection, but this is usually only done in hospital. If you take it 3 times a day, this could be first thing in the morning, mid-afternoon and at bedtime. Swallow amoxicillin capsules whole with a drink of water. Amoxicillin is available as a liquid for children and people who find it difficult to swallow tablets. The usual dose of amoxicillin is 250mg to 500mg taken 3 times a day. If you or your child are taking amoxicillin as a liquid, it will usually be made up for you by your pharmacist. The medicine will come with a plastic syringe or spoon to help you measure out the right dose. If you don't have one, ask your pharmacist for one. Do not use a kitchen teaspoon as it will not give the right amount.
