Ampicillin is a penicillin antibiotic which is used for treating infections caused by certain types of bacteria. Ampicillin kills sensitive bacteria by interfering with the formation of the bacteria's cell wall while it is growing. This process weakens the cell wall which causes it to rupture, thus resulting in the death of the bacteria. Ampicillin is a generic drug. The price of 60 capsules of Ampicillin 500mg is around $15.
