What is Amoxicillin?
Asked by Dan Holsonback 6 months ago.
Amoxicillin (INN) or amoxycillin (former BAN) is a moderate-spectrum, bacteriolytic, β-lactam antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections caused by susceptible microorganisms. It is usually the drug of choice within the class because it is better absorbed, following oral administration, than other beta-lactam antibiotics. Amoxicillin is susceptible to degradation by β-lactamase-producing bacteria, and so may be given with clavulanic acid to decrease its susceptibility (see below). It was developed by Beecham in 1972 and is currently marketed by GlaxoSmithKline (the inheritor company) under the original trade name Amoxil. Mode of action Main article: Beta-lactam antibiotic Amoxicillin acts by inhibiting the synthesis of bacterial cell walls. It inhibits cross-linkage between the linear peptidoglycan polymer chains that make up a major component of the cell wall of Gram-positive bacteria.  Microbiology Amoxicillin is a moderate-spectrum antibiotic active against a wide range of Gram-positive, and a limited range of Gram-negative organisms. Some examples of susceptible and resistant organisms, from the Amoxil Approved Product Information (GSK, 2003), are listed below.  Susceptible Gram-positive organisms Streptococcus spp., penicillin-susceptible Streptococcus pneumoniae, non β-lactamase-producing Staphylococcus spp., and Enterococcus faecalis.  Susceptible Gram-negative organisms Non-β-lactamase producing strains of the following bacteria: Haemophilus influenzae, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Neisseria meningitidis, Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis and Salmonella spp.  Resistant organisms Penicillinase-producing organisms, particularly penicillinase-producing Staphylococcus spp. Penicillinase-producing N. gonorrhoeae and H. influenzae are also resistant. All strains of Pseudomonas spp., Klebsiella spp., Enterobacter spp., indole-positive Proteus spp., Serratia marcescens, and Citrobacter spp. are resistant. The incidence of β-lactamase-producing resistant organisms, including E. coli, appears to be increasing. Doubling the routinely given concentration (in pediatrics) of amoxicillin has been shown to eradicate intermediately resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae in selected infections.  Formulations Amoxicillin in trihydrate form is available as capsules, chewable and dispersable tablets plus syrup and paediatric suspension for oral use, and as the sodium salt for intravenous administration. It is one of the most common antibiotics issued to children, and the sweet-tasting liquid forms are helpful where the patient might find it difficult to take tablets or capsules. It has 3 ionizable groups.  Amoxicillin and clavulanic acid Main article: Co-amoxiclav To overcome the issue of β-lactamase production by resistant organisms, amoxicillin (in either trihydrate or sodium salt forms) may be combined with clavulanic acid, typically as the potassium salt. This combination has activity against a very broad array of Gram-positive, Gram-negative, and anaerobic organisms. It is not active against MRSA, P. aeruginosa, or C. difficile. It is available in oral preparations worldwide and also in the intravenous preparation in some countries. The British Approved Name for this formulation is co-amoxiclav, but it is commonly referred to in practice by proprietary names such as Amoksiklav, Augmentin, Clamoxyl, Augclac, and Augmexx depending on country.  Side effects Side effects are as those for other beta-lactam antibiotics. Side effects include nausea, vomiting, and easy fatigue. Loose bowel movements (diarrhea) also may occur. The onset of an allergic reaction to amoxicillin can be very sudden and intense - emergency medical attention must be sought as quickly as possible. The initial onset of such a reaction often starts with a change in mental state; skin rash with intense itching (often beginning in fingertips and around groin area and rapidly spreading) and sensations of fever, nausea and vomiting. Any other symptoms that seem even remotely suspicious must be taken very seriously.  Non-allergic amoxicillin rash Somewhere between 3% to 10% of children taking amoxicillin (or ampicillin) show a late-developing (>72 hours after beginning medication and having never taken penicillin-like medication previously) non-itchy rash, sometimes referred to as the "amoxicillin rash." The rash is described as maculopapular or morbilliform (measles-like), and starts on the trunk and can spread from there. This rash is unlikely to be a true allergic reaction, and is not a contra-indication for future amoxicillin usage, nor should current regimen necessarily be stopped. However, as mentioned above, this common amoxicillin rash and a dangerous allergic reaction cannot easily be distinguished by inexperienced persons, and therefore a health professional should be consulted if a rash develops. (Pichichero, 2005; Schmitt 2005) Non-allergic amoxicillin rash 8 days after first dose, 24 hours after rash began. Diagnosed by pediactric resident at local university hospital. 8 hours after first photo. Individual spots have grown and begun to merge. 23 hours after first photo. Color apparently fading, much of rash has spread to confluence.  Proprietary preparations Novamoxin Prescription Drug - 500 MG Amoxicillin TrihydrateThe patent for amoxicillin has expired.

Amoxicillin is an antibiotic in the penicillin group of drugs. It fights bacteria in your body. Amoxicillin is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, such as ear infections, bladder infections, pneumonia, gonorrhea, and E. coli or salmonella infection. Amoxicillin is also sometimes used together with another antibiotic called clarithromycin (Biaxin) to treat stomach ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori infection. This combination is sometimes used with a stomach acid reducer called lansoprazole (Prevacid). Answered by Rosetta Vetri 6 months ago.

Amoxicillin/clavulanate potassium is an oral antibacterial combination consisting of the semisynthetic antibiotic amoxicillin and the β-lactamase inhibitor, clavulanate potassium (the potassium salt of clavulanic acid). Amoxicillin is an analog of ampicillin, derived from the basic penicillin nucleus, 6-aminopenicillanic acid. The amoxicillin molecular formula is C16H19N3O5S•3H2O, and the molecular weight is 419.46. Chemically, amoxicillin is (2S,5R,6R) - 6 - [(R) - ( - ) - 2 - Amino - 2 - (p - hydroxyphenyl)acetamido] - 3,3 - dimethyl - 7 - oxo - 4 - thia - 1 - azabicyclo[3.2.0]heptane - 2 - carboxylic acid trihydrate and may be represented structurally as: Clavulanic acid is produced by the fermentation of Streptomyces clavuligerus. It is a β-lactam structurally related to the penicillins and possesses the ability to inactivate a wide variety of β-lactamases by blocking the active sites of these enzymes. Clavulanic acid is particularly active against the clinically important plasmid-mediatedβ-lactamases frequently responsible for transferred drug resistance to penicillins and cephalosporins. The clavulanate potassium molecular formula is C8H8KNO5, and the molecular weight is 237.25. Chemically, clavulanate potassium is potassium (Z)-(2R,5R)-3-(2-hydroxyethylidene)-7-ox... and may be represented structurally as: Inactive Ingredients Colloidal silicon dioxide, hypromellose, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, polyethylene glycol, sodium starch glycolate, and titanium dioxide.

In the production of amoxicillin by acylation of silylated 6-aminopenicillanic acid with the appropriate acid chloride hydrochloride the efficiency of the process and the purity of the product are increased by a new recovery process consisting of isolation from the acylation reaction mixture of solid amoxicillin hydrochloride which is then easily converted to amoxicillin trihydrate.

Amoxicillin is not generic penicillin. They are different but related drugs. If your dog is allergic to penicilin, don't give amoxicillin These hot spots are infected. If this is a flair up of demodex you'll need to get that treated. Depending on his size, give him generic benadryl, .5 mg/lb 3 times a day. Get a triple antibiotic ointment and a 1% hydrocortizone ointment and apply them to the affected areas 3 times a day. Let me know his weight and the strength of the amoxicillin, Jax I still need to know the weight of your dog. You say in your title you have AMOXICILLIN. In your update you say you have 250 mg PENICILLIN. Those are very different. If you have Amoxicillin 250 mg tablets you can give this safely at the dose of 5mg per pound twice a day. But, again, this dose is for Amoxicillin, NOT penicillin. I don't use Penicillin and don't know a dose. The rest of you answering this question are so full of misinformation you should stop answering questions. There is no such thing as an animal amoxicillin. There is no such thing as a human amoxicillin. Amoxicillin is a generic drug. Amoxicillin is Amoxicillin. Period. Clavamox has amoxicillin IN it. Augmentin has Amoxicillin IN it. Both of these Brand Name drugs also have clavulanate (potassium salt of clavulanic acid). Augmentin and Clavamox have differing amounts of the ingredients amoxicillin and clavulanate in them and are dosed accordingly by species. Clavulanate is not an antibiotic but acts synergistically with amoxicillin to expand it's efficacy so that it will kill a broader spectrum of bacteria. Penicillin and Amoxicillin are both beta lactam drugs and bacteria over time have developed resistance to all beta lactam drugs by producing the enzyme β-lactamase. By adding clavulanate to amoxicillin, drug manufacturers have produced a new drug that kills beta-lactamase producing bacteria. All generic drugs are drugs made and produce for humans. When a Vet sends home the generic Amoxicillin or Ciprofloxicin or Tetracycline or Diphenhydramine etc. those are all drugs made for HUMANS. Drugs are not dangerous to dogs or cats just because they were made for humans. Some are and some aren't but this notion you people have that all human drugs are dangerous to cats and dogs is idiotic. The Vet that sends them home knows which are safe. You don't, and should not be telling people things you know nothing about. This person asked a legitimate question about a pet. If someone wants to say "if you don't know a product is safe and you further don't know a safe dose then you shouldn't use it", that's excellent advice. But the rest of the stuff in these other answers is wrong and not helpful and I'm tired of seeing answers from people on websites like this that are so full of misinformation yet these people feel they have the right to be judgemental and condescending based on their own stupidity. Anyone that wants to tell anyone else not to use a product on their pet unless they know it's safe or labelled for the pet or prescribed by a Vet should do so. But don't castigate the person asking the question when you don't know what you are talking about. Answered by Randa Rebar 6 months ago.

Amoxicillin Dosage For Dogs Answered by Myrl Kruss 6 months ago.
A pharmacist will tell you amoxicillin for humans and animals are the same thing. No difference. Exact same drug. I know this because I stopped in the PetRX at Target today because I need an antibiotic that the vet will charge $40 to $100 for and I just spent $2,500 in vet bills so at this point I don't have extra cash to spare but I need my dog take care. My only concern is that she is nursing puppies that are a month old and when I said I needed something safe for a lactating dog I didn't specify that she was currently nursing and I do not want to risk the babies well beings. Yes, calling a vet is free and at most places even first time exams are as well however most vets are terribly money hungry and do not put an animals well being first. It's their bank account they are concerned about and will over charge simply because they understand your pet is your child and you will care for them at any cost.

Penicillin & Amoxicillin?
What is the difference between Penicillin and Amoxicillin? Why is one prescribed over the other?
Asked by Ellamae Kamb 6 months ago.
Actually Amoxicillin is a form of Penicillin. They both are a type of Antibiotic that is used to treat gram positive types of bacteria.Gram positive refers to a staining process to identify strains of bacteria that have a certain type of cell wall coat and both Penicillin and Amoxicillin attack the wall and keep them from replicating. Amoxicillin is used for instances where the organism has shown to be sensitive to administration of the drug. One example is streptococcus. It is very sensitive to Amoxicillin. On the other hand penicillin is slower to get into the body when taken orally and in certain cases this is effective in its treatment. One example is in preventing rheumatic fever for people that have been exposed to it, penicillin is really effective. Answered by Lashawn Kreisberg 6 months ago.
Penicillin is still good at treating gram positive bugs like strep. It also is pretty good at treating the anaerobes in the mouth, as in dental abscesses. Amoxicillin has an extended spectrum against gram negative bugs. The choice is made on the basis of what organisms are expected in the infection. In many respiratory infections, for instance, there's a mix of gram positive and gram negative organisms that can be the cause, so amoxicillin would be the choice. In the above-mentioned dental abscess or strep throat, either will do, but amoxicillin may kill off some gram negatives in the gut and cause diarrhea, so the edge goes to the more limited spectrum of penicillin. Answered by Sunni Durward 6 months ago.
Amoxillin is consider as improved form of penicillin.Both drugs are used to treat a wide array of infectious diseases. Amoxicillin is used more often than penicillin to treat diseases because it has been shown to be more effective for eradicating some infections than the original penicillin. Amoxicillin has the ability to withstand stomach acid, releasing more antibiotic into the blood stream. Penicillin is not as well absorbed as amoxicillin. Answered by Leila Pav 6 months ago.
Both are forms of Penicillins. Penicillin treats infections from gram-positive bacteria. Amoxicillin has a broader spectrum, useful in treating gram-positive as well as certain types of gram-negative infections. Penicillin is generally not taken orally, with the exception of Pen-V, which is acid-stable. With amoxicillin, you can take it orally or intravenously. Amoxicillin is more effective in treating some types of infections. The word penicillin can often be misleading as it can mean the general category of different types of this antibiotic or a sub-category of Penicillin. The category of Penicillin can be divided into natural penicillins and semi-synthetic/synthetic penicillins, which in turn may be further divided into specific groups such as extended spectrum. Still, all Penicillins, which includes penicillin and amoxicillin are beta-lactam antibiotics. Answered by Laverne Heafey 6 months ago.

What is the biomolecular target for amoxicillin?
Asked by Michale Milnik 6 months ago.
The antibacterial effect of amoxicillin-clavulanate in two formulations, pharmacokinetically enhanced 16:1 amoxicillin-clavulanate twice a day (b.i.d.) and standard 7:1 amoxicillin-clavulanate b.i.d., were studied in an in vitro pharmacokinetic model of infection. Five strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae and two of Haemophilus influenzae, all associated with raised MICs (2 to 8 mg/liter), were used. The antibacterial effect was measured over 24 h by the area under the bacterial kill curve (AUBKC) and the log change in viable count at 24 h (Δ24). A high 108 CFU/ml and low 106 CFU/ml initial inocula were used. Employing the Δ24 effect measure, the time above MIC (T>MIC) 50% maximum effect (EC50) for S. pneumoniae was in the range 21 to 28% with an 80% maximal response of 41 to 51%, for the AUBKC measure, the value was 26 to 39%, irrespective of inoculum. For H. influenzae, the T>MIC EC50 was 28 to 37%, and the 80% maximum response was 32 to 48% for the Δ24 measure and 20 to 48% for AUBKC. The maximum response occurred at a T>MIC of 50 to 60% for both species and inocula. The S. pneumoniae data were analyzed by analysis of variance to assess the effect of inoculum, formulation, and MIC on antibacterial effect. Standard and enhanced formulations had different effects depending on MIC, with the standard formulation less effective at higher amoxicillin-clavulanate MICs. This is explained by the greater T>MICs of the enhanced formulation. Although resistant to amoxicillin-clavulanate by conventional breakpoints, S. pneumoniae and H. influenzae strains for which MICs are 2 or 4 mg/liter may well respond to therapy with pharmacokinetically enhanced formulation amoxicillin-clavulanate.

Can you overdose on amoxicillin?
I was just wondering if you can overdose on amoxicillin? What does it do to you?
Asked by Karin Tuerk 6 months ago.
Amoxicillin is a prescription antibiotic. It is possible to take too much of it. The specific effects of an amoxicillin overdose will vary, depending on a number of factors, including the amoxicillin dosage and whether it was taken with any other medications or substances. A mild amoxicillin overdose probably will not cause any significant or lasting problems. However, a large overdose could affect the kidneys, possibly causing poor kidney function or even kidney failure. It is also reasonable to expect that an overdose would cause any of the usual amoxicillin side effects, but perhaps more severely. For instance, it is possible that nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea would occur. Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine.

No, because Amoxicillin kills your blood cells, and that even causes more infection, you should never do that because if you overdose it, the infection may be over, but the next time you get sick it will be even with a little or more force, so you'll be even more sick.
