Is amoxcillin a good treatment for proteus mirabilis?

Proteus mirabilis: I am assuming you have UTI with this organism. If so, Amoxicillin may be quite effective, assuming the strain you have is sensitive. Of greater concern is the fact that this bug is often present more often in complicated utis and perhaps this should be discussed with your doctor. Good luck.
