They are both antibiotics but are effective against different micro-organisms.
Nitrofurantoin is typically used to treat and prevent Cystitis.
Amoxicillin will treat a broad spectrum of micro-organisms.
What specifically are you trying to treat?
The dosage will depend on the age, health, weight etc of the patient and the severity of the infection.
