Brief Answer:
yes, you can use it

Detailed Answer:

Yes, you can use Amoxicillin for bladder infection.

However, antibiotics of the fluroquinolone group like Ciprofloxacin and Norfloxacin are better urinary antibiotics and are routinely used in bladder infection. These are more effective than Amoxicillin.

If you have only Amoxicillin as the drug of choice now, there is no harm in taking it. Please go ahead and use it.
