Amoxicillin - Overview
Amoxicillin is an antibiotic medication that is used in the treatment of infections that are thought to be caused by bacteria susceptible to amoxicillin. Push Health can help people who might need amoxicillin medication connect with medical providers who can prescribe amoxicillin if clinically appropriate.
Amoxicillin - Uses and Metabolism
Amoxicillin, and the branded version Amoxil, are oral antibiotic medications similar to ampicillin and penicillin. Amoxicillin is a semisynthetic medication with a bactericidal effect against both gram-negative and gram-positive organisms. Amoxil may be used to treat specific types of infections of the ear, nose and throat (e.g. strep throat), genitourinary tract, skin and lower respiratory tract. Amoxicillin is absorbed quickly after being ingested orally and is mostly excreted in the urine unchanged. Amoxicillin has a half-life of 61 minutes and roughly 20% of it is bound by proteins in the blood. Peak amoxicillin levels occur between 1 and 2 hours after administration. Amoxil capsules contain amoxicillin 500 mg and are royal blue and pink in color. Amoxil tablets contain amoxicillin 500 mg or amoxicillin 875 mg. Amoxil is also available as chewable tablets and powdered oral suspensions. Amoxicillin is sometimes combined with another drug and used as Augmentin. Amoxicillin is also used in combination with clarithromcyin as part of eradication therapy for H. pylori.
Amoxicillin - Dosage and Cost
The dosage of amoxicillin used depends on the health needs of the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. In adults, starting dosages of amoxicillin 500 mg twice per day or amoxicillin 875 mg twice per day are sometimes used. After administration, the half-life of amoxicillin is under 120 minutes. Amoxicillin is largely excreted in the urine. Generic amoxicillin is consider an affordable medication. Most pharmacies carry amoxicillin pills for under thirty cents per pill. Because most amoxicillin regimens only require a limited number of pills, the total cost for an amoxicillin prescription is also reasonable. For people who cannot afford amoxicillin, it may be worth looking for amoxicillin coupons online. Also, some insurance plans may cover the cost of an amoxicillin prescription.

Amoxicillin - Side Effects
Amoxicillin is a medication that can cause side effects when used. Side effects after amoxicillin use include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and an allergic reaction. People who have had a history of hypersensitivity or allergy to amoxicillin or penicillins should not use amoxicillin. Longer term, overuse of amoxicillin can lead to bacterial resistance, making amoxicillin less effective in the future. Amoxicillin and alcohol should not be used together. Questions and concerns about amoxicillin use should be directed to one's pharmacist and medical provider prior to using the medication.
