Generic Amoxil (Amoxicillin 250 mg) guide:
What is Generic Amoxil?
Amoxicillin is a semi-synthetic antibiotic first developed by The Beecham Group, a British pharmaceutical company. It was a registered brand-name till the patent of the manufacturer expired. Nowadays, the drug is manufactured by hundreds pharmaceutical companies from all around the world. These companies are able to use the original name of the medication or their own names with the name of the active substance indicated below the trademark. In general, all antibiotics with the single active substance Amoxicillin are considered generics of the first original drug. For instance, Amoxil, a widely used antibiotic in the U.S., is basically a generic of the British drug. At our online pharmacy, you can buy Generic Amoxil or Amoxicillin manufactured by the well-known pharmaceutical company Ranbaxy.
The medications based on this semi-synthetic antibiotic, i.e. its generics or combination drugs with an antibiotic plus an additional substance, are very popular around the world because of their broad spectrum of efficacy, i.e. they are effective against the majority of the known bacterial infections, and the easy-to-use formulation. The drug comes in pills or capsules that can be used at home without any damage to the therapy effect unlike with some other potent antibiotics that should be administered intravenously. The medication is also widely used not only for the therapy of adults but also in pediatrics.
Is there a difference between the branded and generic medications?
Ideally, there should not be any difference between the branded and generic drugs. However, certain pharmaceutical companies are known to be using inferior ingredients for their drugs. Therefore, to get the right drug which will provide the best results and no harm to your body, it would be wise to buy Amoxicillin from a reputable seller such as our online pharmacy.
Generic medications are approved and even promoted by the WHO to make the essential drugs affordable for all people. Therefore, you should not be scared to buy a generic medication instead of the expensive branded drug if you choose a reliable seller.
When the medication is used?
Antibiotics, in general, are used for the therapy of bacterial infections and inflammation associated with them. If you have a viral infection, for instance, if you suffer from flu or common cold, you don’t need to use any antibiotic because it won’t eliminate the cause of the disease but only unnecessarily damage your organs and contribute to the lowering of your immunity. Moreover, if you start taking antibiotics before consulting a doctor, you can develop resistance to them and when the treatment with an antibiotic will be needed your doctor will have to choose for you the second line medications that are usually more potent and badly tolerated.
The best time to use Generic Amoxicillin is when your doctor prescribes you this antibiotic for the therapy of pneumonia, upper or lower respiratory tract infections, otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear), sinusitis, genitourinary infection, kidney infection, skin or soft tissue infection, arthritis, cystitis, Chlamydia, and others.

If you have severe allergy using penicillin, carbapenems or cephalosporins, this antibiotic also wouldn’t suit you. Other contraindications include bronchial asthma, infectious mononucleosis, lymphocytic leukemia, liver failure, pollinosis, gastrointestinal diseases. The medication is also not allowed to be used in breastfeeding women because it is transferred to the baby with the milk. Elderly patients need special attention when administered Amoxicillin.
Though the antibiotic can be used during pregnancy, kidney failure or history of bleeding, it should be used cautiously, i.e. in smaller dosages and under a doctor’s supervision.
The most common side effects the majority of antibiotics, including Amoxicillin, are infamous for are indigestion, diarrhea, colitis, nausea, vomiting, skin rash and itching, and vaginal candidiasis. Other side effects include muscle pains, headache, swelling, irregular heartbeat, and others. Though some of the symptoms can seem harmless, you need to consult your doctor if they occur nevertheless. Some of them require the discontinuation of the therapy and use of medications to eliminate the consequences of the antibiotic use.
Combination with other medicines
The drug’s effect and absorption is influenced by the medications used to lower the stomach juice acidity, glucosamine, laxatives, and aminoglycosides.
If you use other medications or are unsure whether the medications you take fall into one of the categories listed above, consult your doctor first before you order Generic Amoxicillin.
Overdose detection and treatment
An overdose with an antibiotic is easily detected as it is accompanied with nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. If you realized that you overdosed less than 2 hours after you took the increased dosage, you can take sorbents such as activated carbon. If more time has already passed or the symptoms were severe from the beginning, you need to go to the emergency room as you may need gastric lavage, hemodialysis, and other procedures to wash out the drug from your body quickly.
