Product Description

Augmentin is one of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics and comprises of a combination of clavulanate potassium and amoxicillin.

Drug Information

• Augmentin is a co-amoxiclav; this means it contains a combination of amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium. These are antibiotics used to cure a number of antibiotic infections in the body.

• The primary ingredient in Augmentin is amoxicillin trihydrate, this is an antibiotic that belongs to a class of drugs known as penicillins. Amoxicillin stops bacteria from structuring a cell wall that results in the death of bacterium.

• Amoxicillin is normally prescribed to treat infections such as, urinary tract infections, pneumonia, skin infections, strep throat, ear infections, bronchitis and lyme disease.

• Amoxicillin does not work against bacteria that produce beta-lactamase (an enzyme that degrades amoxicillin). Therefore, to create a form of clavulanic acid amoxicillin is combined with clavulanate potassium. The end product which is Clavulanic acid restrains the beta-lactamase enzyme produced by certain bacteria.

• Augmentin is available as 625 mg oral tablets. The drug is also available in extra strength and extended release versions.

Dosage

• Augmentin is a potent antibiotic that should only be administered as prescribed by a medical expert.

• Normally, the dosage of Augmentin varies depending on the weight of the host and the type of bacterial infection.

• The regular Augmentin tablets should not be chewed but swallowed whole with a glass of water. The chewable tablets should be chewed before swallowing. The extended release tablets should not be chewed or crushed. Chewing or crushing causes the full dose to be released into the body instantly and can raise the chances of adverse side effects.
