Ampicillin - Overview

Ampicillin is a medication used in the treatment of infections proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria susceptible to ampicillin treatment. People who might need an ampicillin or ampicillin-sulbactam prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider in the area who can prescribe ampicillin medication when appropriate and indicated to do so.

Ampicillin - Uses and Mechanism of Action

Ampicillin, generally speaking, is a type of antibiotic medication used for treating infections suspected to be caused by bacteria susceptible to ampicillin. Ampicillin is thought to be effective for some Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria such as Streptococcus pneumoniae. Ampicillin is meant for use in treating bacterial infections and not infections caused by viruses. Ampicillin is sometimes used in treating strep throat, urinary tract infections and some other infections. Ampicillin is similar in structure to amoxicillin and penicillin. Cephalexin (Keflex) and cefdinir are sometimes used as an alternative to ampicillin for some infections.

Ampicillin - Dosage and Cost

When used orally, ampicillin is available in liquid and capsule form. Ampicillin is typically taken before meals and may be prescribed to be taken multiple times per day, depending on the specific needs of the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. In many healthy people, ampicillin has a half-life of under two hours and is excreted in the urine, feces and bile. Ampicillin is considered relatively affordable, costing under 30 cents per ampicillin 500 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Coupons can sometimes be found for ampicillin medication online or using a copay card. Insurance plans will often cover costs associated with an ampicillin / ampicillin-sulbactam medication prescription but one would need to check for coverage directly.

Can I Buy Ampicillin Online?

Ampicillin OTC is not available in the United States because ampicillin is a prescription medication. As a result, one cannot just buy ampicillin online as the first step is consulting a medical provider. People who might need an ampicillin prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe ampicillin when appropriate to do so.

Ampicillin - Side Effects

Ampicillin can cause side effects, and concerns about the medication should be directed to a pharmacist and medical provider before use. Ampicillin's side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, itching, rash, hairy tongue and muscle pain. Ampicillin use can lead to a Clostridium difficile infection known as colitis. Ampicillin and alcohol should not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to ampicillin, penicillin-based antibiotics or similar medications should not use ampicillin.
