Liquid Amoxicillin

Amoxicillin (Amoxil®) is an antibiotic often prescribed for the treatment of various types of bacterial infections. It belongs to a class of medications called aminopenicillins, which work to fight infections by stopping bacteria from making cell walls (which eventually causes the bacteria to die). Amoxicillin comes in several different forms, including tablets, chewable tablets, capsules, and liquid.
 
There are two different liquid types of this drug: pediatric drops and oral suspension. Both forms of amoxicillin liquid need to be shaken well before use. The suspension and drops taste better if stored in the refrigerator. A dose of the oral suspension or pediatric drops can be added to formula, milk, fruit juice, water, ginger ale, or cold drinks if necessary (the mixture should then be taken immediately and completely).
