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