It is used to treat bacterial infections that can be located in the ears, nose, throat, genitourinary tract, skin and skin structures. Amoxicillin is used to treat respiratory infections, and also stomach ulcers caused by H. pylori. It works by binding to the bacterial cell wall and causing cell death. Client and/or parents need to be educated on how to take/give this drug. It is important to take amoxicillin around the clock and finish the full prescribed dose even if feeling better, report signs of superinfection and allergy, notify health care provider immediately if diarrhea, abdominal cramping, fever or bloody stools are present, notify provider if symptoms do not improve, and use measuring device supplied by the pharmacy in order to avoid dosage errors in pediatric patients. On the other hand, female patients who are taking oral contraceptives should considerer taking an alternative or additional non hormonal contraceptive when in therapy with amoxicillin because it may decrease its effectiveness (Quiring et. al, 2019). Amoxicillin is used to treat several infections, including acute otitis media which is the system disorder I chose for the system disorder assignment. Acute otitis media is an infection of the structures of the middle ear, fluid is present accompanied by symptoms of middle ear inflammation (Mayo Clinic, 2020). Risk factors include age, group child care, poor air quality, Native Alaska heritage, cleft palate, seasonal factors, and infant feeding. Symptoms include tugging or pulling of the ears, ear pain, fever, loss of appetite, frequent fussiness, crying, and irritability, trouble sleeping and hearing, and drainage from the ears (can be one or both). Acute otitis media is treated by amoxicillin as a first line of antimicrobial therapy. Ibuprofen and/or acetaminophen is also advised in order to help manage pain and fever. Safety recommendations are to maintain immunizations up to date, avoid second hand smoke, breastfeed infants, and monitor for reoccurring acute otitis media. Reference Quiring, C., Vallerand, A.
