Skin rashes when taking Moxilanic can be common, especially in children. According to Texas Children’s Hospital, an estimated 5 to 10 percent of children taking Moxilanic will experience a skin rash. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if the rash is because of an allergy or not.
Most people notice a skin rash while taking Moxilanic after they’ve taken it for three to five days. The rash may have small, flat or raised red patches unevenly spaced on the skin. Sometimes, they’re itchy and usually start on the chest, stomach, or back.
The rash from Moxilanic is different from an allergic reaction or hives. Hives are raised, itchy, welts that usually pop up within hours after taking the medicine. A person may also have symptoms such as trouble breathing or swallowing.
If a person has a true allergic reaction to Moxilanic, they should seek emergency medical attention if they are having problems breathing. If they can take an antihistamine like diphenhydramine (Benadryl), it may help the itching. They should call their doctor and ask for a prescription for another antibiotic “family” if they are truly allergic.
If the rash isn’t an allergy, it should go away after a few days. Some people may apply an anti-itch cream.
Q: Is Moxilanic really safe to take while pregnant?
A: Moxilanic is a prescription antibiotic. It is usually considered to be safe for use during pregnancy. The FDA uses a pregnancy category system to classify the possible risks to a fetus when a specific medicine is taken during pregnancy. Pregnancy Category B is given to medicines that have not been adequately studied in pregnant humans but do not appear to cause harm to the fetus in animal studies. Moxilanic is classified as a Category B medication. A pregnancy Category B medicine is given to a pregnant woman only if a health care provider believes that the benefits to the pregnant woman outweigh any possible risks to the unborn child. For instance, if the infection, left untreated, will do more harm than good for both you and the baby, this is the safest antibiotic to choose. Lori Poulin, PharmD
When available, the clinical microbiology laboratory should provide cumulative in vitro susceptibility test results for antimicrobial drugs used in local hospitals and practice areas to the physician as periodic reports that describe the susceptibility profile of nosocomial and community-acquired pathogens. These reports should aid the physician in selecting the most effective antimicrobial.
Dilution Techniques: Quantitative methods are used to determine antimicrobial minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs). These MICs provide estimates of the susceptibility of bacteria to antimicrobial compounds. The MICs should be determined using a standardized test method -(broth or agar) 2,4 . The MIC values should be interpreted according to the criteria in Table 4.
Diffusion Techniques: Quantitative methods that require measurement of zone diameters can also provide reproducible estimates of the susceptibility of bacteria to antimicrobial compounds 3,4 . The zone size should be determined using a standardized test method 3 .
Susceptibility to Moxilanic of Enterococcus spp., Enterobacteriaceae, and H. influenzae, may be inferred by testing ampicillin 4 . Susceptibility to Moxilanic of Staphylococcus spp., and beta-hemolytic Streptococcus spp., may be inferred by testing penicillin 4 . The majority of isolates of Enterococcus spp. that are resistant to ampicillin or Moxilanic produce a TEM-type beta-lactamase. A beta-lactamase test can provide a rapid means of determining resistance to ampicillin and Moxilanic 4 .
Susceptibility to Moxilanic of Streptococcus pneumoniae (non-meningitis isolates) may be inferred by testing penicillin or oxacillin 4 . The interpretive criteria for S. pneumoniae to Moxilanic are provided in Table 4 4 .
Table 4: Susceptibility Interpretive Criteria for Moxilanic
A report of “Susceptible” indicates the antimicrobial is likely to inhibit growth of the pathogen if the antimicrobial compound reaches a concentration at the infection site necessary to inhibit growth of the pathogen. A report of “Intermediate” indicates that the result should be considered equivocal, and, if the microorganism is not fully susceptible to alternative, clinically feasible drugs, the test should be repeated. This category implies possible clinical applicability in body sites where the drug is physiologically concentrated. This category also provides a buffer zone that prevents small uncontrolled technical factors from causing major discrepancies in interpretation. A report of “Resistant” indicates the antimicrobial is not likely to inhibit growth of the pathogen if the antimicrobial compound reaches the concentration usually achievable at the infection site; other therapy should be selected.

This list may not describe all the potential side effects of Moxilanic. If you are experiencing any adverse effects of any drug that isn’t listed here, call your doctor for advice.
Moxilanic in vitro susceptibility testing methods for determining minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) and zone sizes have not been standardized, validated, or approved for testing H. pylori. Specimens for H. pylori and clarithromycin susceptibility test results should be obtained on isolates from patients who fail triple therapy. If clarithromycin resistance is found, a non-clarithromycin-containing regimen should be used.
What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Moxilanic to my pet?
Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to another penicillin or to a cephalosporin. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney disease or stomach or intestinal disease.

Moxilanic and Pregnancy
If you're a woman, let your doctor know if you are or may be pregnant, are breastfeeding, or using birth control pills.
Though Moxilanic is widely believed to be safe, ask your doctor if the risks of taking antibiotics while pregnant outweigh the benefits.
Also, let your doctor know if you are breastfeeding because Moxilanic can pass through breast milk and increase the risk for a later allergic reaction in babies.

AMOXIL (Moxilanic) Capsules, Tablets, or Powder for Oral Suspension
Serious and occasionally fatal hypersensitivity (anaphylactic) reactions have been reported in patients on penicillin therapy including Moxilanic. Although anaphylaxis is more frequent following parenteral therapy, it has occurred in patients on oral penicillins. These reactions are more likely to occur in individuals with a history of penicillin hypersensitivity and/or a history of sensitivity to multiple allergens. There have been reports of individuals with a history of penicillin hypersensitivity who have experienced severe reactions when treated with cephalosporins. Before initiating therapy with AMOXIL, careful inquiry should be made regarding previous hypersensitivity reactions to penicillins, cephalosporins, or other allergens.
