Infection
Hi
I went to the doctor yesterday and he gave me these medicines amoxycillin and Bunate. He only told me I had an infection and said I should finish this medication and come back again. Please tell me what this tablets are for?

Thanks

Thandi,

The amoxycillin is a broad spectrum antibiotic (penicillin). It is used to treat various types of infection from upper respiratory infections, Gastrointestinal infections and, to a small extent, urinary tract infections.
