Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'am, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns.. Amoxicillin can be used to treat urinary tract infection and the commonly used dose is 500 mg three times daily ( every eight hours ) for 14 days .. However, since your urinary tract is recurrent then I would recommend that you get a urine analysis together with a culture and sensitivity test to determine which antibiotic will be most effective to treat your infection. I hope you find this helpful. if you don't have any other clarifications then please close the discussion ..
