Can I take amoxicillin for cold and throat infection?
Most throat infections are caused by viruses and amoxicillin knocks out bacteria - so it most likely wouldn't. If you happened to have a bacterial infection then it might be helpful; however, antibiotics are prescribed for specific infections. If you were to take amoxicillin and didn't take it for a long enough period, your bacterial infection could come roaring back. It's best to go to a doctor and follow his/her prescriptions. Good luck with your cold!
