In brief: Why do you ask?
There is a wide range of dosing for amoxicillin, depending on the infection being treated.
In pediatrics, the dose can range from 20 mg/kg to 90 mg/kg. If you think you took too much, call the poison help line at 1-800-222-1222.

Higher than normal doses could lead to more predictable side effects, like diarrhea.Otherwise it is just an odd source of protein.
