Hi I've been prescribed amoxicillin for persistent sinusitis and tonsilitus which I've had for more than a month! I was wondering should the tablets be taken with food or without? Also how common are side effects and allergic reactions, I've never taken it before!

They are a bog standard common antibiotic. Its quicker to Google your question or read the packet then wait 6 hours for someone to look up the answer for you.

The side effects of amoxicillin are minor and are different in every person, for example, I get hideous heartburn! The side effect you need to look for though is any stomach upsets (diarrhoea) as that could mean that a new infection has occurred!

It usually tells you on the box if you need to take them with food.

I was on Amoxycillin until a few days ago and wondered the same thing. Turn out they don't need to be taken with food. With or without.
