Amoxil is a brand name for an antibiotic from amoxicillin, a semi-synthetic penicillin. Amoxicillin was introduced by Beecham Research Laboratories Ltd (now part of GlaxoSmithKline) in 1972. It is used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections, especially those of the chest, ear, and bladder, and can be used in the treatment of gonorrhoea. It can also be taken orally with food. This carton is for a syrup-based version of amoxicillin, especially designed for children and those who cannot swallow tablets easily, and is still available on the market today.
