Take without regard to meals Mixing oral suspension: Tap bottle until all powder flows freely; add approximately one third of the total amount of water for reconstitution and shake vigorously to wet powder; add remainder of water and shake vigorously again After reconstitution, place required amount of suspension directly on child’s tongue for swallowing; if taste is unacceptable, required amount of suspension can be added to formula, milk, fruit juice, water, ginger ale, or other cold drinks; preparation must be taken immediately Shake suspension well before using; any unused portion must be discarded after 14 days Mucocutaneous candidiasis Gastrointestinal (eg, black hairy tongue and hemorrhagic/pseudomembranous colitis, which may occur during or after treatment) Hypersensitivity reactions (eg, anaphylaxis, serum sickness–like reactions, erythematous maculopapular rashes, erythema multiforme, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, exfoliative dermatitis, toxic epidermal necrolysis, acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, hypersensitivity vasculitis, urticaria) Moderate increase in AST and/or ALT; hepatic dysfunction (eg, cholestatic jaundice, hepatic cholestasis and acute cytolytic hepatitis have been reported) Renal (eg, crystalluria) Anemia (eg, hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, thrombocytopenic purpura, eosinophilia, leukopenia, agranulocytosis) CNS reactions (eg, reversible hyperactivity, agitation, anxiety, insomnia, confusion, convulsions, behavioral changes, dizziness) Tooth discoloration (brown, yellow, or gray staining); may be reduced or eliminated with brushing or dental cleaning Anaphylaxis has been reported rarely but is more likely to occur following parenteral therapy with penicillins Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (CDAD) has been reported with use of nearly all antibacterial agents; severity may range from mild diarrhea to fatal colitis; CDAD may occur over 2 months after discontinuation of therapy; if CDAD is suspected or confirmed, discontinue immediately and begin appropriate fluid and electrolyte management, protein supplementation, antibiotic treatment of C difficile, and surgical evaluation Do not administer in patients with infectious mononucleosis because of risk of development of erythematous skin rash Do not administer to patients in the absence of a proven or suspected bacterial infection because of risk of development of drug-resistant bacteria Superinfections with bacterial or fungal pathogens may occur during therapy; if suspected, discontinue immediately and begin appropriate treatment Chewable tablets contain aspartame, which contains phenylalanine Use caution in patients with allergy to cephalosporins, carbapenems Endocarditis prophylaxis: use for only high-risk patients, as per recent AHA guidelines High doses may cause false urine glucose test by some methods Derivative of ampicillin and has similar antibacterial spectrum (certain gram-positive and gram-negative organisms); similar bactericidal action as penicillin; acts on susceptible bacteria during multiplication stage by inhibiting cell wall mucopeptide biosynthesis; superior bioavailability and stability to gastric acid and has broader spectrum of activity than penicillin; less active than penicillin against Streptococcus pneumococcus; penicillin-resistant strains also resistant to amoxicillin, but higher doses may be effective; more effective against gram-negative organisms (eg, N meningitidis, H influenzae) than penicillin The above information is provided for general informational and educational purposes only.

Kidney damage is defined as pathological abnormalities or markers of damage, including abnormalities in blood or urine tests or imaging studies. Note that even with a mildly reduced GFR, kidney damage must be present to diagnose CKD, whereas stages 3 to 5 require only a reduced GFR. Reduced GFR and/or kidney damage must be present for Competing interests: AC is the co-editor of the second edition of "The Renal Drug Handbook".
