  • Ampicillin Overview

    Ampicillin is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. It is a penicillin-type antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.

  • How to Use Ampicillin

    Take Ampicillin by mouth usually 4 times a day (every 6 hours), or as directed by your doctor. Take ampicillin on an empty stomach (1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal) with a full glass of water. Drink plenty of fluids while using Ampicillin unless your doctor tells you otherwise. The Dosage of Ampicillin is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. For the best effect, take this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take Ampicillin at the same time(s) every day. Continue to take Ampicillin until the full-prescribed amount is finished even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a relapse of the infection. Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.

  • Ampicillin Precautions

    Before taking ampicillin, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to penicillin or cephalosporin antibiotics; or if you have any other allergies. Ampicillin may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Ampicillin, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,kidney disease, a certain type of viral infection (infectious mononucleosis). Ampicillin may cause live bacterial vaccines (such as typhoid vaccine) to not work as well. Do not have any immunizations/vaccinations while using Ampicillin unless your doctor tells you to. Kidney function declines as you grow older. Ampicillin is removed by the kidneys. Therefore, elderly people may be more sensitive to Ampicillin. Ampicillin should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Ampicillin passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

  • Ampicillin Misdose

    If you miss a dose of Ampicillin, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.

  • Ampicillin Interactions

    Your healthcare professionals (such as your doctor or pharmacist) may already be aware of any possible drug interactions and may be monitoring you for it. Do not start, stop or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with them first. Before using Ampicillin, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products you may use,methotrexate, tetracyclines. Ampicillin may cause false positive results with certain diabetic urine testing products (cupric sulfate-type). Ampicillin may also affect the results of certain lab tests.
