Amoxicillin can potentially interact with a few other medications (see Amoxicillin Drug Interactions).

What If I Take an Overdose?

  • Decreased urine production
  • Poor kidney function

If you happen to overdose on amoxicillin, seek medical attention immediately.
(Click Amoxicillin Overdose for more information.)

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your amoxicillin as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose. Try not to miss doses, as this increases the risk of developing an antibiotic-resistant infection.
