Some clinicians select amoxicillin over penicillin VK to treat odontogenic infection because of a more convenient dosing regimen e.g., 2-3 doses daily for amoxicillin versus 4 doses daily for penicillin VK. Except for coverage of Haemophilus influenzae in acute sinus and otitis media infections, amoxicillin is not any more effective than penicillin VK for the treatment of odontogenic infections. It is less effective than penicillin VK against aerobic gram-positive cocci and similar in efficacy against anaerobes. Thus penicillin VK is the drug of choice for treating odontogenic infections. Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to amoxicillin, penicillin or any component of the formulation. Warnings/Precautions: Use with caution in patients with severe renal impairment (modify dosage); low incidence of cross-allergy with other beta-lactams and cephalosporins exists. The usual daily oral dose for treating odontogenic infections in children is: Children under 12 years: 20-40 mg/kg divided in 2-3 doses daily for 10 days. My 15 month old got diagnosed with an ear infection today and the doc prescribed amoxycillin 400 mg./5ml (1 tsp.) dose twice a day. When I got to the pharmacist, he made a comment like that was a strong dose and to make sure I don't give her more than that.
