4.2 Posology and method of administration
The dose of Amoxicillin that is selected to treat an individual infection should take into account:
• The expected pathogens and their likely susceptibility to antibacterial agents (see section 4.4)
• The severity and the site of infection
• The age, weight and renal function of the patient; as shown below
The duration of therapy should be determined by the type of infection and the response of the patient, and should generally be as short as possible. Some infections require longer periods of treatment (see section 4.4 regarding prolonged therapy).
