Amoxicillin (Amoxil®, Moxatag™) is a medication that healthcare providers often prescribe to treat certain types of infections. It belongs to a class of drugs (known as beta-lactam antibiotics) that work by stopping bacteria from making cell walls, which eventually causes the bacteria to die. Amoxicillin comes in various forms, including capsules, tablets, chewable tablets, pediatric drops, and oral suspension. While most people tolerate this antibiotic well, potential side effects include nausea and vomiting, thrush, and diarrhea.
