Do you have to eat before taking amoxicillin?

Amoxicillin is a type of penicillin - do not take it if you are allergic to penicillin. Space your doses out evenly over the day and complete the full course of the antibiotic, even if you feel your infection has cleared up. You can take amoxicillin either before or after food.

How long do you have to wait between amoxicillin?

Adults, teenagers, and children weighing 40 kilograms (kg) or more—250 to 500 milligrams (mg) every 8 hours, or 500 to 875 mg every 12 hours. Children weighing less than 40 kg—Use and dose must be determined by your doctor.
