DescriptionDosageSide EffectsPhotos

Ampicillin is an antibiotic used to prevent and treat a number of bacterial infections, such as respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, meningitis, salmonellosis, and endocarditis. It may also be used to prevent group B streptococcal infection in newborns. It is used by mouth, by injection into a muscle, or intravenously. Like all antibiotics, it is not useful for the treatment of viral infections.

Common side effects include rash, nausea, and diarrhea. It should not be used in people who are allergic to penicillin. Serious side effects may include Clostridium difficile colitis or anaphylaxis. While usable in those with kidney problems, the dose may need to be decreased. Its use during pregnancy and breastfeeding appears to be generally safe.

Ampicillin is a penicillin antibiotic. It works by killing sensitive bacteria by interfering with formation of the bacteria’s cell wall while it is growing. This weakens the cell wall and it ruptures, resulting in the death of the bacteria.

The manufacturer recommends:
Parenteral:
-Infections of the respiratory tract and soft tissues: 250 to 500 mg IM or IV every 6 hours
-Infections of the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts (including Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections in females): 500 mg IM or IV every 6 hours
-Urethritis in males due to N gonorrhoeae: 500 mg IM or IV every 8 to 12 hours for 2 doses
-Bacterial meningitis: 150 to 200 mg/kg/day in equally divided doses every 3 to 4 hours; may start with IV drip therapy and continue with IM injections
-Septicemia: 150 to 200 mg/kg/day; start with IV administration for at least 3 days and continue with IM route every 3 to 4 hours
