I was prescribe amoxicillin trihydrate after all 4 of my wisdom teeth were removed. What are the side effects of this drug I am a 16 and weigh 52kg?
Very few.: Amoxicillin is a very safe antibiotic with very, very few side effects. Take it with 8 oz of water, which can help prevent a yeast infection, or diarrhea if taken for 7-10 days, which are fairly common side effects of most antibiotics. Other than that, there are very few side effects, if you are not allergic to drugs in the penicillin class. Good for you for checking carefully before taking it. ...Read more

Does amoxicillin trihydrate has any help on chalazion? Please helpppp i have this for 3 months now... What should I take to make this heal?
Probably not: Since a chalazion is a fluid collection as opposed to an infection (hordoleum, stye), antibiotics are not likely to help. Antibiotics could be considered if the fluid became infected. Amoxicillin may help but broader coverage could be considered. If you have not improved despite treatment, you should be evaluated by an eye surgeon. ...Read more

Depends!: Correct Amoxicillin dose for any infection depends upon sensitivity of bacteria causing infection. If bacteria is resistant to Amoxicillin or similar antibiotic, then it's a poor choice & won't work. That's why it's important to sent urine for c&s (culture & sensitivity). Btw, antibiotics like Amoxicillin only work against bacteria but not against virus which cause most common colds & sort throats. ...Read more
My daughter is on amoxicillin 9mL twice a day. She is 3 1/2 years old. How much time should there be between dosages?
My 29lb daughter was given a dosage of 4ml twice a day of liquid amoxicillin (400mg/5ml). Does it correct? Not overdose? Thank You.
Depends: The dosing for this med is based on both patient weight and what you are treating. For some respiratory or urinary infections the dosage of 50mg/kg/d would be expected. For an otitis media, 90mg/kg could be considered proper. Your dosage is at the lower end of normal for some issues and low for others. ...Read more
Do exactly 12 hours have to pass between admin of Amoxicillin? Got her first dosage now but want to create routine for daycare days (6am 6pm)
NO: The absorption and distribution of this antibiotic from the intestines is spread out over several hours and you have flexibility to move doses up or back to accommodate such needs. Exact timing is more important in a hospital setting with moderate to severe infections where the meds are usually given IV, at times that maximize med availability. ...Read more
My son is ten and weighs 130 lbs. He was prescribed Amoxicillin 400 mg/5 ml suspension. 2 1/2 teaspoons once daily. Is this the correct dosage?
No: The standard dose of Amoxicillin is 25-50 mg/kg/24 hours divided into three (every 8 hours) or 2 (every 12 hours) doses per day. Your child is getting 1000 mg once a day. He should be getting between 800 and 1600 mg per dose twice a day. Perhaps the physician meant to write for 1,000 mg twice a day and the RX was mistyped. ...Read more

What is the correct ml dosage of ic amoxicillin 250mg/5ml suspension for a 3yr old that weighs 29lbs?
Check with doctor: Though there are standard dosages for infants and children based on weight regarding antibiotics it is best to check with the prescribing pediatrician since they may not be following those numbers strictly depending upon the situation & severity of infection being treated. It may be an error to simply follow a number based on weight unless you know that you're in step with the doctor's plans. ...Read more
Varies: The dose of Amoxil (amoxicillin) depends on the infection being treated. For most things it is ~45mg/kg divided twice a day. So your child would receive probably the 250mg/tsp formulation with instructions to give it twice a day (note: amount given doesn't have to be precisely what is calculated, so long as it is close). For ear infections the dose is higher, usually 80-90mg/kg divided twice a day. ...Read more
