What is ampicillin
Ampicillin is a penicillin antibiotic that is used to treat or prevent many different types of infections such as bladder infections, pneumonia, gonorrhea, meningitis, or infections of the stomach or intestines.
Ampicillin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
How should I take ampicillin?
Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Use the medicine exactly as directed.
Take this medicine with a full glass of water.
Shake the oral suspension (liquid) before you measure a dose. Use the dosing syringe provided, or use a medicine dose-measuring device (not a kitchen spoon).
Take ampicillin on an empty stomach, at least 30 minutes before or 2 hours after a meal.
Do not share this medicine with another person, even if they have the same symptoms you have.
If you are being treated for gonorrhea, your doctor may also have you tested for syphilis, another sexually transmitted disease.
If you use this medicine long-term, your kidney function, liver function, and blood cells may need to be checked.
Use this medicine for the full prescribed length of time, even if your symptoms quickly improve. Skipping doses can increase your risk of infection that is resistant to medication. Ampicillin will not treat a viral infection such as the flu or a common cold.
Very severe infections may need to be treated for several weeks.
Ampicillin can cause unusual results with certain medical tests. Tell any doctor who treats you that you are using ampicillin.
Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use.
What should I avoid while taking ampicillin?
Antibiotic medicines can cause diarrhea, which may be a sign of a new infection. If you have diarrhea that is watery or bloody, call your doctor before using anti-diarrhea medicine.
What other drugs will affect ampicillin?
Other drugs may affect ampicillin, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Tell your doctor about all your current medicines and any medicine you start or stop using.
