Thanks for the query.

Amoxacillin can cause abdominal pain but not much severe enough that makes you to stop the medicine.

You can take pantoprazol tablet along with it.It may help to relieve pain.

If abdominal pain persists after taking pantoprazol then there could be another cause pain which needs to evaluated.
Hope this helps you.
Thank you.
