Amoxicillin is a prescription antibiotic. It’s used to treat infections caused by a certain type of bacteria. It may be used as part of combination therapy. This means you may need to take it with other medications.
The oral tablet comes as an immediate-release (IR) tablet, extended-release (ER) tablet, and a chewable tablet. The chewable tablet and IR tablet are only available as generic drugs. The ER tablet is only available as the brand-name drug Moxatag.
Generic drugs usually cost less. In some cases, they may not be available in every strength or form as their brand-name versions.
Amoxicillin also comes as a capsule and a suspension. All forms are taken by mouth.
