What this medicine is for
Amoxycillin and clavulanic acid tablets are indicated for short-term treatment of bacterial infections at the following sites when caused by sensitive organisms(see Microbiology): - Urinary tract infections (uncomplicated and complicated). - Lower respiratory tract infections, including community acquired pneumonia and acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis. - Upper respiratory tract infections, such as sinusitis, otitis media and recurrent tonsillitis. - Skin and skin structure infections. Appropriate culture and susceptibility studies should be performed to identify the causative organism(s) and determine its (their) susceptibility to APO-Amoxycillin and Clavulanic acid 500 /125 tablet.s. However, when there is reason to believe an infection may involve any of the beta-lactamase producing organisms listed in Microbiology, therapy may be instituted prior to obtaining the results from bacteriological and susceptibility studies. Once these results are known, therapy should be adjusted if appropriate. The treatment of mixed infections caused by amoxycillin susceptible organisms and beta-lactamase producing organisms susceptible to APO-Amoxycillin and Clavulanic acid 500 /125 tablets should not require the addition of another antibiotic due to the amoxycillin content of these products.
