You may experience reduced absorption of penicillin in the presence of food. The effectiveness of the antibiotic may be reduced. Penicillin should be administered one hour before or two hours after meals. This will make it easier for your body to absorb the medication. Penicillin V and amoxicillin are not affected by food and may be given without regard to meals.
