Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Amoxicillin BPAmoxicillin (INN), formerly amoxycillin (BAN), tormoxin (in India), amoxycillin (cilamox) in Australia, abbreviated amox, is a moderate-spectrum, bacteriolytic, -lactam antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections caused by susceptible microorganisms. It is usually the drug of choice within the class because it is better absorbed, following oral administration, than other -lactam antibiotics. Amoxicillin is one of the most common antibiotics prescribed for children. Amoxicillin is susceptible to degradation by -lactamase-producing bacteria, which are resistant to a broad spectrum of -lactam antibiotics, such as penicillin. For this reason, it is often combined with clavulanic acid, a -lactamase inhibitor, and marketed under one name. This increases effectiveness by reducing its susceptibility to -lactamase resistance.show more
