Everybody knows about the health benefits of the antibiotics. They help to kill bad bacteria in the body and prevent the inflammatory processes. The success of the treatment depends a lot on the choice of an antibiotic because they have different mechanism of the action and effect. Amoxil is one of the most effective drugs for the treatment of infections which will do for both adults, and children.
Amoxil effectively acts during severe infectious processes in the body and stops the progress of the disease. It contains Amoxicillin, a drug from the group of penicillin which provides a bactericidal action to the pathogenic microflora.
A bactericidal effect consists in the destruction of the cellular wall of microorganism, so that its natural protection disappears and they die. Amoxil has a negative effect to bacteria on the phase of growth as well as at rest phase, therefore it provides 100% result during any infectious process.
Amoxicillin is destructed under the action of beta-lactamase, and therefore it is necessary to detect a type of the originator before prescribing Amoxil. The therapeutic action begins within an hour after the use of the single dose of Amoxil, and a patient feels better in 1-2 days.

Amoxil is prescribed adults and children over 6 months to treat middle and severe infectious processes: pneumonia, bronchitis, sore throat, sinusitis, otitis, peritonitis, cholera, cystitis, urethritis, rose, Lime disease, salmonella, sepsis, meningitis, and others.
A dose of Amoxil and length of the treatment depend on the medical image. To arrest the symptoms of the infection of the middle severity, it is enough to take Amoxil 500 mg 3 times per day within 5-7 days.
In case of complicated/chronic infectious-inflammatory processes, Amoxil is used in the dose of 750-1000 mg 3 times per day within 5-10 days.
Children under 5 years old are recommended to take 125-250 mg of Amoxil per day.
The most optimal time of taking Amoxil is one hour before meals. If you forgot to take a pill but have already eaten, it is necessary to wait for 1,5-2 hours, and then the skipped dose can be used.
– If bronchial asthma or other forms of the respiratory failure, Amoxil is not recommended
– If diseases of liver, kidneys, gastro-intestinal tract, Amoxil should be used in the minimal dosev
– Stop the breast feeding during the treatment because Amoxil can penetrate into breast milk
– Do not take Amoxil in combination with bacteriostatic antibiotics
Using Amoxil often causes side effects in the digestion organs: nausea, stomachache, diarrhea, and itching in the area of anus. But patients sometimes feel lack of energy, sleepiness, headache, or dizziness.
If the side effects last for more than 2-3 days and cause discomfort, it is necessary to lower the daily dose of Amoxil.
