Moxatag (amoxicillin extended-release) Tablets, 775mg, is a once-a-day extended-release formulation of amoxicillin for oral administration consisting of three components: one immediate-release component and two delayed-release components. The three components of Moxatag are combined in a specific ratio to prolong the release of amoxicillin compared to immediate-release amoxicillin.
