More information

  • Uses and Metabolism

    Amoxicillin, and the branded version Amoxil, are oral antibiotic medications similar to penicillin. Amoxicillin is a semisynthetic antibiotic 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, 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 also combined with another drug and used as Augmentin.

  • Amoxicillin – Side Effects

    Amoxicillin and Amoxil are antibiotic medications that can cause side effects. 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 and Amoxil use should be directed to one’s pharmacist and medical provider prior to using the medication.

  • Amoxicillin – Cost

    Generic amoxicillin and branded Amoxil are affordable medications. 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. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.
