Everybody had a sore throat more than once in his or her life. Although several factors can cause a sore throat, the most common reason is viral or bacterial infectious diseases.

As a rule, viral infections require only symptomatic treatment while bacterial ones are treated exclusively with antibiotics. In case if a bacterial infection complicates the viral disease, the doctors prescribe antibiotics.

For sore throat doctors often prescribe Amoxil, with amoxicillin as its main active ingredient. Amoxicillin is a semisynthetic antibiotic, which doctors prescribe for a sore throat caused by streptococci, staphylococci and other bacteria. Amoxil belongs to the penicillin group and has a broad spectrum of action. It is one of the most common and trusted antibiotics in the penicillin group.

Its effect on the human body has been studied quite well. It proved to be very effective in fighting angina. Doctors recommend it because it has virtually no major side effects. Its minor side effect is the disruption of the natural microflora of the gastrointestinal tract, but it is typical for almost all antibiotics.

Compared to other drugs it does not dissolve in the stomach and can be taken at any time with or without food. Despite the fact that you can take Amoxil any time, doctors still recommend to take it after you eat. Medicine action starts in half an hour and lasts for about 8 hours. It is recommended to take Amoxil three times a day. After Amoxil is absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, it fights the pathogenic microflora for a long time.

The drug is extracted from the body naturally through the kidneys. Provided the kidneys are healthy, there is not too much damage to the body. Like many penicillin preparations, this medicine requires a three-time scheme of administration. For uncomplicated disease, a patient should take one tablet in a dose of 500 mg or 2 tablets of 250 mg. It takes 5 to 7 days to treat angina with Amoxil.

There are following advantages of treatment with Amoxil:

  • it is certified as one of the safest for adults and children of different age starting from infancy;
  • unlike many antibiotics (for example ampicillin), Amoxil is absorbed in gastrointestinal tract;
  • it is well absorbed by all tissues and body fluids except spinal cord and brain;
  • it fights many bacterial infections;
  • it is an excellent medicine for tonsillitis, sinusitis, otitis and other diseases;
  • it has an affordable price.

Amoxil has some side effects, but, fortunately, they are rare to occur. Most of them are caused by careless and unsupervised administration of the drag and result in indigestion, constipation or stomach ache.

In conclusion, it should be emphasized that the antibiotic Amoxil is an excellent medicine for angina. It is recommended to consult a doctor and follow the instructions otherwise you can get “a super infection” or a strong allergic reaction instead of recovery.
