Amoxicillinum review





Amoxicillinum is the generic form of antibiotics that are often prescribed as Morisot, Amoxil, Biomox, Dispermox, Trimox, and Wymox. It is commonly used to treat bacterial infections in the body such as gonorrhea, skin infections, tooth infections, ear infections, tonsillitis, inflammatory illness of the lung, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, and other forms of bacterial infections.

Amoxicillinum is not for everyone. A thorough medical history should be disclosed to your doctor prior to prescribing this medication. Patients with a medical history that includes allergies to penicillin or cephalosporin, or a history of kidney illness, bowel illness, stomach illness, or intestinal illness may not be able to take Amoxicillinum or may require careful monitoring while undergoing treatment, depending on the severity of the patient's condition.

The American Food and Drug Administration has rated Amoxicillinum as a pregnancy risk category B. This means that this medication is not expected to cause harm or birth defects in an unborn baby. Amoxicillinum does pass through the mother's breast milk, and while very few cases have been reported, there is a small risk to the nursing baby. Less than 1% have reported yeast infections, diarrhea, or allergic reactions in nursing babies. The prescribing physician should discuss whether the benefits outweigh the risks prior to prescribing this medication to a pregnant or nursing woman, or a woman who is likely to become pregnant.

There is a risk of side effects associated with Amoxicillinum, some of which are severe. A patient experiencing a serious side effect or an allergic reaction should seek immediate emergency medical attention. An allergic reaction will present with symptoms which include facial swelling, including swelling of the lips, mouth, tongue, or throat, hives, and difficulty breathing. Other serious side effects, which require emergency medical attention, include unusual bleeding, easy bruising, or seizures.

Other less serious side effects typically do not require emergency medical attention but should be reported to the prescribing physician. Patients are encouraged to report all side effects. Less serious side effects include symptoms such as white patches on the tongue, mild nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach ache, vaginal yeast infection, or a black “hairy” tongue, or a sore mouth and tongue. Less serious side effects can often be reduced to a tolerable level by reducing the dose of Amoxicillinum.

Amoxicillinum should be taken exactly as prescribed by the physician. If the patient misses a dose, the dose should be taken as soon as it is remembered. However, if it is almost time for the next scheduled dose, the missed dose should be skipped to avoid the potential of an overdose. If an overdose is suspected, the patient should seek immediate emergency medical attention. An overdose will present with symptoms such as pain, twitching, weakness, pain in the fingers or toes, muscle spasm, loss of feeling in the fingers or toes, confusion, agitation, seizures, coma, or death.

There is a risk of negative drug interaction associated with Amoxicillinum. A thorough medical history should be understood prior to prescribing this medication. Patients are urged to inquire with the prescribing physician before taking any new medicaments, including over the counter medicaments and herbal remedies. Medications with known negative drug interactions with Amoxicillinum include any additional antibiotic, methotrexate, probenecid, and allopurinol.

Patients should take the entire prescription as directed by the physician, even if their symptoms subside. Patients who end their treatment of Amoxicillinum early run the risk of a relapse of infection that is more severe and more resistant to antibiotics. The chronic or overly frequent use of antibiotics can lead to the body's tolerance of the medication, rendering it ineffective.
