Is amoxicillin good for a bad cough and bacterial infection in my lungs and/or chest?, had cough for 2 weeks, on amoxicillin for 2 days now.

Depends. Whether Amoxicillin works or not depends on what is causing your cough and whether you truly have a bacterial infection in your lungs (pneumonia). If you have had a cough for 2 wks it seems likely this is an atypical pneumonia (mycoplasma, chlamydia or legionella), none of which will respond to treatment with amoxicillin. See an id doctor.

No. A bacterial infection in the lungs would be pneumonia. Amoxicillin would not be a good choice for this because many of the bacteria that cause pneumonia are resistant to amoxicillin. A quinolone like levoquin, a tetracycline like Doxycycline or a combination of a cephalosporin like vantin or Ceftin (cefuroxime) plus zithromax would all be effective for community acquired bacterial infection.

Yes. Yes, assuming your infection really is bacterial. The more of the following symptoms you have, the more likely the infection is to be bacterial, but none of these symptoms is a perfect predictor by any means.: 1. Absence of cough. 2. Fever. 3. Enlarged, tender lymph nodes under the angle of the jaw. No worries about toxicity with expired amoxicillin. But you need a full course of this med. Read more...

No. Don't take leftover antibiotics. At best, they may not have any effectiveness (some lose effect after a certain amount of time). At worst, you may be increasing your chances of antibiotic resistance. Taking antibiotics when not indicated can cause them not to work well when you really do need them. Discard expired meds (safely!) and see your doctor if you think you need treatment. Read more...

Not at all. People don't become "resistant " to antibiotics , germs do. Sometimes they won't work because you have a resistant strain of germs or the illness was viral & never needed or would respond to antibiotics. Since you can't become resistant, you certainly can't pass that on. Your goal in life is to make sure you only use them when needed. Read more...

Bacterial infection. That depends upon whether the diagnosis was correct (you didn't provide any details), what the organism causing infection was, whether it is sensitive to amoxicillin, what symptoms are you expecting to change, and so on. Need far more info to respond accurately. If sinusitis you may need saline neti-pot irrigation and decongestant (pseudoephedrine), and if not better a visit to an ENT doctor. Best. Read more...
