What is penicillin V used to treat?

Penicillin V is prescribed for the treatment of bacterial infections in various areas of the body.

Primarily, penicillin V is used to treat conditions such as:
- Pneumonia
- Respiratory tract infections
- Scarlet fever
- Bacterial ear infections (such as otitis media)
- Bacterial skin infections (such as cellulitis)
- Bacterial throat infections (such as strep throat)


Because penicillin V is an antibiotic, it is ineffective against viral, parasitic, and fungal infections. This medication is prescribed to treat existing infections, and should not be used as a preventative measure against bacterial infections. Doing so can actually make you more resistant to antibiotic treatment.

How does penicillin V work?

Penicillin V is classified as a penicillin antibiotic, meaning that it is indicated for use against bacterial infections in various areas of the body. These drugs work by killing harmful bacteria and preventing their growth. This dual-action treats existing infections while preventing them from spreading or worsening.

What are the common side effects of penicillin V?

Penicillin V has been shown to cause some mild side effects. If these adverse effects do not go away within a few days, talk to your health care provider.

This is not a complete list of possible adverse effects.

If you experience an unexplained rash, swelling, difficulty breathing, or itchy skin while taking penicillin V, seek medical attention immediately. These are early signs of an allergic reaction, a potentially serious side effect of taking this medication.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with, as well as any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before taking penicillin V. Penicillin V may interact with other forms of medication, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or are currently breastfeeding before starting treatment with this medication.

What is the typical starting dose of penicillin V?

Penicillin V is commonly administered as an oral tablet. The exact dosage of your prescription will vary depending on your age and the infection requiring treatment.

In most cases, penicillin V should be taken every 6 hours (4x per day) or every 8 hours (3x per day). The length of treatment will depend on the infection.

It is recommended that you take penicillin V at the same time every day.

Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of penicillin V without consulting your doctor first. If you stop taking penicillin V before the full course of treatment has finished, the infection may recur. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
