A 20-year-old female asked:

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.

How can I get my baby to take amoxicillin without fussing?

Small drops: Two strategies that might be helpful: one would be to drop a few drops from a dropper into your babies mouth at a time until the dose is done. Sometimes babies will tolerate this better than the whole dose at once. Also, some pharmacies will add different flavors to the antibiotic, so you can experiment over time to find out which flavor your child likes best.

Generally 24 hours: Once on the antibiotic for 24 hours is typically when schools allow students to go back to class, but i would also recommend reducing your exposure to others until the fever is gone and you start to feel better.

Does zinc drops effect amoxicillin?

No.: Currently, there is no evidence that suggests zinc interferes with the effect of amoxicillin. Amoxicillin is similar to penicillin, in that it interferes with the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall. Because of this similarity, anyone with an allergy to penicillin should not take amoxicillin.
