Pediatrics
In brief: One oral, one IV
Both are actually the same medicine, but Amoxicillin is the oral form of the medication and Ampicillin is the IV form of the medicine.
I have actually also seen a few times oral Ampicillin listed as being available, but usually the oral form that is most stable and palatable is the amoxicillin.
