does amoxicillin help with walking pneumonia?

Probably not: Walking pneumonia is not an actual clinical term. It generally means someone who has an infection in the lungs that is not severe enough to leave them bedridden during their illness. Many cases of pneumonia are caused by viruses, which do not respond to any antibiotics. Antibiotics for bacterial pneumonias depend on where patient contracted it, age, severity, etc. Amox is not a recommended tx.
