Additional information

It is very important to take your full course of Amoxicillin antibiotics, even if you start to feel better. Stopping your antibiotics early can cause your infection to return and get worse.

Amoxicillin can be taken with or without food. If you get a stomach ache after taking this medication, taking it with food can help prevent this side effect. If you take the liquid form, shake well before use and measure the liquid dose carefully.

Try to not miss doses, and try to take this drug at roughly the same time of day.

Talk to your doctor if you have any severe side effects, especially if you experience extreme diarrhea, as it may be indicative of a more serious condition.

People often have allergic reactions to antibiotics. Tell your doctor if you experience signs of an allergic reaction including rash, itchiness, hives, wheezing, tightness in the chest or throat, trouble breathing, or swelling of the mouth, face, lips, tongue or throat.
