About Moxatag

MOXATAG: the first and only once-daily amoxicillin

In a large prospective, double-blind, multicenter, randomized tonsillitis/pharyngitis trial with amoxicillin involving adult and pediatric patients ≥12 years:

  MOXATAG 775 mg once-daily provided clinically demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of tonsillitis and/or pharyngitis secondary to Streptococcus pyogenes (S. pyogenes)1

  In the per-protocol population, MOXATAG achieved bacterial eradication rates of 85.0% vs 83.4% with penicillin VK: rate difference 95% CI(%): 1.6 (-5.1, 8.2)1

Once-daily dosing — proprietary extended-release tablets1

Timed releases of amoxicillin ensure adequate drug levels to treat S. pyogenes with just 1 daily dose for 10 days.1


Once-daily dosing with MOXATAG means fewer tablets to swallow1,3

*MOXATAG is indicated for the treatment of tonsillitis and/or pharyngitis secondary to S. pyogenes in adult and pediatric patients 12 years of age or older.1

Amoxicillin approved adult dosing regimens for ear, nose, and throat infections: 500 mg BID or 250 mg TID for mild to moderate infections; 875 mg BID or 500 mg TID for severe infections. It is recommended that there be at least 10 days treatment for any infection caused by Streptococcus pyogenes to prevent the occurrence of acute rheumatic fever.3

MOXATAG tablets should be taken within 1 hour of finishing a meal for 10 days1

The full 10-day course of therapy should be completed for effective treatment of tonsillitis and/or pharyngitis secondary to S. pyogenes1
