How many amoxicillin does it take to overdose?

Take proper dose: In case of overdosage, discontinue medication, treat symptomatically, and institute supportive measures. A prospective study of 51 pediatric patients at a poison-control center suggested that overdosages of less than 250 mg/kg of Amoxicillin are not associated with significant clinical symptoms.
