Amoxicillin is a semi-synthetic penicillin antibiotic with a broad spectrum of antibacterial activity against many gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms. Amoxicillin is sensitive to the action of beta-lactamase and disintegrates under its influence, therefore, the spectrum of amoxicillin activity does not include microorganisms that synthesize this enzyme. Clavulanic acid has a beta-lactam structure similar to the structure of penicillins, and also has the ability to inactivate beta-lactamase enzymes produced by microorganisms resistant to penicillins and cephalosporins. In particular, it has a pronounced activity against plasmid beta-lactamases that are clinically important, which are often responsible for the emergence of cross-resistance to antibiotics. The presence of clavulanic acid as part of Augmentin protects amoxicillin from disintegration under the action of beta-lactamase enzymes and expands the spectrum of antibacterial action of amoxicillin, including many microorganisms resistant to amoxicillin and other penicillins and cephalosporins.
Mode of application
The dosage regimen is set individually depending on the age, body weight, renal function of the patient, as well as the severity of the infection.
For optimal absorption and reduction of possible side effects from the digestive system, Augmentin® is recommended to be taken at the beginning of a meal.
