What is Augmentin used for?
Augmentin, with the generic name amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium, is an oral medication indicated to treat different types of bacterial infections, namely lower respiratory tract infections, otitis media, sinusitis, urinary tract infection, and skin/skin structure infections. It could also be used to prevent infections that susceptible bacteria could cause.
This is available in Augmentin 875 mg /125 mg, 500 mg /125 mg, and 250 mg /125 mg film-coated tablets.
How does Augmentin work?
This penicillin-like antibiotic works by blocking the beta-lactamase enzymes and supplying the organisms that are susceptible to this antibiotic’s rapid bactericidal effect at a level that is readily attainable in the system. This drug produces a broad-spectrum antibacterial effect that is widely beneficial in the clinical setup and general practice.
