Amoxicillin is used to treat many different types of infection caused by bacteria, such as tonsillitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, gonorrhea, and infections of the ear, nose, throat, skin, or urinary tract.
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).
Oral amoxicillin is not considered first-line treatment for anthrax prophylaxis; it may, however, be used to complete a 60-day prophylactic course after 10 to 14 days of ciprofloxacin or doxycycline in pregnant or lactating patients or in patients with contraindications to the other two agents. The total duration of antimicrobial therapy is 60 days.
Both pharmacies are FDA approved.
