Were you looking for information about Amoxicillin? Amoxillin is a common misspelling of amoxicillin.
A wide variety of bacterial infections can be treated with the prescription antibiotic amoxicillin (Amoxil®, Moxatag). The drug, which is generally taken by mouth one, two, or three times daily, works by stopping bacteria from making cell walls (which causes them to eventually die). Before your healthcare provider prescribes you amoxicillin, it is important to let him or her know if you have kidney disease, are pregnant, or have phenylketonuria. Potential side effects include thrush, diarrhea, and rashes.
