Preferably: Yes, you should preferably refrigerate liquid amoxicillin, but it can be kept at room temperature if you must; it is only reasonably stable for 14 days.

Yes: It loses potency after 24 hours in a hot setting, after a week at room temperature and after 14 days refrigerated.

Can I take amoxycillin for a swelling?

AMOXICILLIN: Amoxicillin is penicillin. Where is the swelling? How long has it been there? Does it hurt? How big is it? Do you have diabetes? If it's a boil, you should see your family physician. You may need more than amoxicillin.
