Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,

Need more information related to medical conditions and medications that you consume. If what you mean is the consumption of drugs containing Amoxicillin, I will try to explain a little about the treatment. Amoxicillin is an antibiotic penicillin group used to treat bacterial infections. Amoxicillin works by inhibiting the formation of cell walls in bacteria so that bacteria will be more easily destroyed.

To take antibiotic treatment, it is advisable to consult a doctor first. It needs to be explored further about medical conditions or complaints that you experience, physical examination and supporting examinations such as blood samples, urine samples, feces or imaging tests if necessary. After going through these stages, new administration can be given accordingly.

In the consumption of antibiotics, it is recommended to follow the treatment regimen in accordance with the doctor's recommendations. Follow the antibiotic treatment regimen completely, do not stop even though complaints have improved. If you take the wrong drink according to the recommended regimen, you may notice some side effects that can occur such as nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, headache, the appearance of a rash, or an allergic reaction to treatment (a decrease in consciousness, a swollen face, shortness of breath, weakness), immediately check yourself into the nearest hospital Emergency Department for further treatment.

Hopefully this information can help you,
