AMOXICILLIN – is a widely-used antibiotic drug. It belongs to the penicillin group of drugs and is used to treat certain infections that are caused by bacteria. In the United States, its brand names include Larotid, Amoxil, DisperMox, Moxilin, and Trimox. Amoxicillin fights bacteria and stops them from growing by preventing them from forming cell walls. This kills the bacteria and eventually eradicates the infection.

Amoxicillin can be used in combination with another antibiotic called clarithromycin to treat stomach ulcers caused by H. pylori bacterial infection. These drugs can also be combined with lansoprazole to help reduce stomach acid and symptoms of acid reflux. Health care providers sometimes prescribe amoxicillin for heart problems, to prevent chlamydia during pregnancy, to prevent bacterial infection in newborns, or to protect the heart valve after surgical procedures. Amoxicillin can also be used “off-label” to treat anthrax. Amoxicillin should only be used “off-label,” in other words, for purposes not usually specified, if specifically recommended by a healthcare provider.
