The withdrawal time should be on the product fact-sheet that came with the Amoxicillan Clav, but should be somewhere between 1 and 10 days usually.
There is several studies that have been done on the safety of Amoxicillian and the product should be safe to use as long as you follow the instructions provided by the manufacture.
