Amoxicillin is known as an effective medication for combatting infections. It is a semisynthetic aminopenicillin, which has a bactericidal effect with a wide spectrum of antimicrobial activity. Amoxicillin is given to patients with chest, dental, ear, and many other types of infections by inhibiting the reproduction of bacteria. Because of its powerful antimicrobial influence on the human body is has been used to save people’s health or even life. When the immune system cannot successfully fight the infection, strong antibacterial drugs like Amoxicillin can help. Amoxicillin is effectively distributed in body tissue and fully eliminated from the body via kidneys within 6 hours after the medication administration.
Prescription and use of Amoxicillin
Amoxicillin is a purely antibacterial treatment that is not effective against viruses therefore it cannot be used to cure such diseases as common cold or flu caused by viruses. But it is often prescribed for:
- Tonsillitis, sinusitis, acute bronchitis, pneumonia
- Cystitis, urethritis, kidney, and bladder infections
- Digestive system conditions caused by bacteria
- Osteomyelitis and other serious bone and joints conditions caused by bacteria
- Occasionally it is combined with other antibacterial medication to combat more complex and resistant conditions caused by harmful bacteria
What Do You Need to Know Before Starting Amoxicillin Treatment?
Inform your doctor if ever before you experienced an allergic reaction to a medication. If you previously used antibacterial medicine of the penicillin-type or any other kind of antibacterial treatments and experienced side effects mentioned in the medication leaflet you must consult your doctor before taking Amoxicillin.
Inform your doctor or healthcare professional if you have one of the following conditions:
- Chronic liver and kidney disease
- Blood coagulation issues
- Infectious mononucleosis
If you are using birth control medications, you must not take Amoxicillin or temporarily stop the birth control medication and use other methods of contraception. Ask your doctor for advice.
If you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant consulting your doctor is highly recommended as there may be risks related to taking antibiotics. Medication easily passes into breast milk therefore Amoxicillin should never be taken without medical supervision when breastfeeding.
Medications like penicillin-type antibiotics can affect the results of your medical tests (blood and urine tests), so inform your doctor or your nurse before taking them.
How to use Amoxicillin Safely?
250-500 mg of Amoxicillin is usually prescribed to take daily 3 times a day for 5 days (depending on the condition and individual needs of the patient). A higher dose may be used for severe bacterial infections.
People who previously suffered from atopic allergies (such as asthma, eczema, or advanced forms of hay fever) are at a higher risk of severe allergic reactions to penicillin-type antibiotics.
Amoxicillin may be used with and without food, at the same time every morning. If you feel heaviness or pain in the stomach after swallowing it on an empty stomach, taking it together with a meal would be preferable. The tablet form of Amoxicillin should not be ground or crushed before swallowing. Swallow it whole and drink plenty of fluids while using the medicine to keep a good level of hydration.
If you did not remember about your medication on time, take a pill as soon as you remember, but to avoid overdosage.
Antibiotics should not be taken with alcohol.
The prescribed dosage should not be altered by the person receiving medical treatment. Do not stop taking the medicine until the end of the prescribed course, even if you can feel the improvement of your condition after the first days of treatment as the infection might return and the second attempt of antibacterial treatment might be less effective.
Penicillin drugs such as Amoxicillin can cause such common side effects as nausea and diarrhea in 1 out of 10 adults. The symptoms disappear when you finish your course.
