Introduction

Amoxil 500mg Injection is a penicillin-type antibiotic used to treat a variety of bacterial infections of the skin, bones and joints, respiratory tract (e.g. pneumonia), urinary tract, gastrointestinal tract, brain (e.g. meningitis), heart, blood, and others.

Amoxil 500mg Injection works by stopping the growth of bacteria, which helps to resolve the underlying infection and improve your symptoms. It is given as a drip (intravenous infusion) or as an injection directly into a vein or a muscle under the supervision of a healthcare professional. This medicine should be used regularly at evenly spaced intervals as per the schedule prescribed by your doctor.

Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Stopping the medicine too early may lead to the infection returning or worsening. The total duration of treatment and precise dosage will be decided by your doctor, depending on the type of infection that you have and how well you respond to the medication. It is effective in both adults and children.

Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you are allergic to penicillin or any penicillin-type of medicine. Rash, vomiting, allergic reactions, nausea, diarrhea and local pain, swelling or redness at the site of injection may be seen as side effects in some patients. These are temporary and usually resolve quickly. Consult your doctor if any of these side effects persist or if your condition worsens. This medicine is generally regarded as safe to use during pregnancy if used under a doctor’s supervision.
