How is ampicillin taken?

Ampicillin can be taken through a shot or injection in one of your large muscles like the hip or buttock. Also, it can be taken through intravenous solutions that are administered through a vein. The intravenous fluid will drip through a needle or through a catheter for about 30 minutes. Ampicillin also comes in oral capsules and an oral liquid solution. Depending on the level of infection, doses may occur frequently throughout the day. Your doctor or healthcare provider will determine your individual dose.
