Amoxicillin is a commonly used penicillin antibiotic used for the purpose of fighting bacterial infections and is present in a number of different brands including Amoxil, Moxatag, Amoxicot, DisperMox, and Trimox. It is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections such as chest infections, including pneumonia, and can also be used to treat dental abscesses.
Amoxicillin can also be used with another antibiotic, clarithromycin, in the treatment of stomach ulcers, such as the Helicobacter pylori infection, and can also be used with lansoprazole to reduce stomach acid. Available in the form of capsules or as a liquid, Amoxicillin is sometimes also given by injection, but only in a hospital environment. Amoxicillin is also a commonly prescribed antibiotic for children in the treatment of chest infections and ear infections.
What Is Amoxicillin Prescribed For?
Amoxicillin is prescribed as a treatment for bacterial infections, as opposed to viral infections. Predominantly, Amoxicillin is prescribed for different types of infections including the following:
- Sinus infections.
- Chest infections
- Ear infections
- Urine infections
- Some forms of dental infections, such as abscesses
Additionally, Amoxicillin can be prescribed to prevent an infection from occurring if the individual is at particular risk of getting infections. Amoxicillin can also be prescribed to get rid of the bacterial infection Helicobacter pylori, which is often found in people who experience duodenal stomach ulcers but will also be prescribed additional medications alongside it.
It is important to note that this type of medicine does not work for viral infections, for example, the common cold and flu.
How Does Amoxicillin Work?
Amoxicillin is an antibiotic that belongs to a specific class of drugs known as beta-lactams, which work by binding proteins and inhibiting specific processes inside the bacterial cells, also known as inhibiting cell wall biosynthesis. This reaction causes the cell walls to break down and destroys the bacteria inside. Amoxicillin begins to work very quickly after being taken by a patient, usually within 1 and 2 hours but the effects are not typically felt until a day or so later.
What Are the Side Effects of Amoxicillin?
Like all types of medicines, Amoxicillin can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. There are common side effects, which include the following:
- Nausea or feeling sick
If you experience the side effects, it is recommended to continue to take the medicine, however, you should speak to your doctor if these side effects do not go away or bother you. There are more serious side effects which are rare, and include the following:
- Discolored urine and stools
- Diarrhea or stomach cramps that contain blood or mucus, or severe diarrhea that persists for more than 4 days
- Skin rash with circular red patches
- Bruising or changes in the color of the skin
- Muscle pain or joint pain that begins 2 days after taking the medicine
Some of these side effects can occur up to 2 months after finishing the course of Amoxicillin. Additionally, people can have an allergic reaction to Amoxicillin, which is predominantly mild and usually in the form of skin rash, which can be treated by taking antihistamines, but in rare cases, Amoxicillin can cause anaphylactic shock.
