In prophylaxis of endocardi-tis, children may be given half of the adult dose, i.e., 1.5 g about 1 hour before procedures such as dental extraction.
Adverse effects are mild, rare and infrequent. As with other penicillins it may induce diarrhoea, indigestion or skin rashes which usually stop during treatment and rarely calls for discontinuation of therapy.
Use in Pregnancy & Lactation: Because of its lack of teratogenicity, Amoxiciliin can be used safely throughout pregnancy at the normal adult dose. The small amount of Amoxicillin secreted in maternal milk rarely causes problems in the infant. It can therefore be used safely during lactation in most instances.
