What is the treatment for amoxicillin overdose?

Amoxicillin

Dysentery
It is actually, with normal kidney function, to overdose on penicillin-type antimicrobials. Most complications of treatment are not due to too high a dose but rather allergies or drug-associated diarrhea or colitis.

Dr. Michael E. Ein answered:

Is amoxicillin right for the treatment of boils?

No

Open-uri20131027-11119-73cqeq
Boils will frequently resolve with hot salt water soaks until they drain. Boils are usually caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Over 90% of S.aureus are resistant to amoxicillin. Dicloxicillin or Keflex would be effective against MSSA. MRSA is usually treated orally with Septra/Bactrim, doxycycline or clindamycin.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

If i have gonorrhea can i just take amoxicillin with no probenecid?

Where are you??

Amoxicillin
Amoxicillin-resistant gonococci are very common in many areas, and not recommended as first line therapy. When sensitive, probenecid delays excretion of amoxicillin by the kidneys and increases the levels available in the body. The combo is beneficial when the organisms are sensitive. Check the CDC website for current recommendations for your area.

Anyone know what is a treatment for itchy hives after using amoxicillin?

Amoxicillin allergy

Amoxil
If hives occur soon after taking amoxicillin, it suggests an allergy to amoxicillin. The best treatment is stopping the medicine and taking an antihistamine for the itching until it clears. Consider a visit to an allergist if you are not sure about the cause.
