Once reconstituted, amoxil suspension should be thrown away after 30 days. It loses its potency. This occurs even faster if it is not refrigerated after reconstitution. While in powder form (before it is mixed) it can last quite some time. ==ADDITIONAL INFORMATION TO CONSIDER == Studies show that expired drugs may lose some of their potency over time, from as little as 5% or less to 50% or more (though usually much less than the latter). Even 10 years after the "expiration date," most drugs have a good deal of their original potency. If your life does not depend on an expired drug - such as that for headache, hay fever, or menstrual cramps - take it and see what happens. One of the largest studies ever conducted that supports the above points about "expired drug" labeling was done by the U.S. military 15 years ago, according to a feature story in the Wall Street Journal (March 29, 2000), reported by Laurie P. Cohen. Here are a couple of resources as well: https://www.health.harvard.edu/fhg/updates/update1103a.shtml http://www.baliadvertiser.biz/articles/paradise/2006/expired_drugs.html
Provided it is stored correctly, liquid amoxicillin will remain effective until the "use by" date stated on the label. It is worth noting, however, that any course of antibiotic medicine should be completed by the patient.
Amoxicillin is a is a broad spectrum antibiotic from the family of penicillin, which is good for up to ten (10) days after taking the first dose. It should be taken for ten consecutive days to prevent development of resistance to the drug.
Before usage the antibiotic is good until the expiry date, which is usually located on the box or the bottle.
how long does it take for amoxicillin to work i have catarrh in my ear have been taking them for two days
It means Amoxicillin to be taken for 10 day, three times daily.
Probably several years but don't depend your life on it.
yes it is
Upto about 5 days afterwards it will still work but not as effectively. Beyond that, it may actually begin to grow mold.
It depends on the antibiotic. If it is a tablet or capsule, it will have an expiration date on the vial that you received from the pharmacy. If it is a reconstituted antibiotic for a child such as Amoxicillin (Amoxil), Cefdinir (Omnicef), Azithromycin (Zithromax), or any other liquid that you are supposed to give to a child, then yes. These are usually only good for 10 to 14 days. Amoxicillin and Azithromycin are good for 10 days from the day they are mixed and Cefdinir is good for 14 days. After that, you need to throw them out.
500ml 3 times a day for 10 days.
Yes i have been vomiting for the past 5 days straight every morning , and i am pretty sure it is from the amoxicillin.
This is a question for the vet who has prescribed Amoxicillin for your cat. It is common for owners to be given a week's worth of antibiotics to give to their cat at home, but this may vary. Consult your vet if you are unsure.
No, eating yogurt while taking Amoxicillin might actually help prevent getting a yeast infection since the Amoxicillin is killing all the bacteria in your digestive tract including the good bacteria. Yogurt adds more good bacteria to your digestive tract.
