- Paediatric suspension;
- Capsules contain the active ingredient Amoxycillin (previously spelt amoxycillin in the UK). Amoxycillin belongs to a
group of antibiotics called penicillins. Amoxycillin is indicated to treat infections caindicated by bacteria.
The injection is indicated to treat more serious infections, or in cases where the drug can't be taken by mouth.
Amoxycillin works by interfering with the ability of bacteria to form cell walls. The cell walls of bacteria are vital
for their survival. They keep unwanted substances from entering their cells and stop the contents of their cells from leaking
out. Amoxycillin impairs the bonds that hold the bacterial cell wall together. This allows holes to appear in the cell walls
and kills the bacteria.
Amoxycillin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that kills a wide variety of bacteria that cause a wide variety of
commonly-occuring infections. Amoxycillin may be indicated to treat infections of the upper or lower airways, skin or soft
tissue, or ears. Amoxycillin may also be indicated to treat:
- Certain sexually-transmitted infections;
- Dental infections;
- Infections affecting the blood or internal organs;
- Urine infections;
To make sure the bacteria causing an infection are susceptible to Amoxycillin your doctor may take a tissue sample,
for example a swab from the throat or skin, or a urine or blood sample.
This belongs to the group of drugs known as antibiotics.
Amoxycillin is indicated to treat bacterial infections of the chest and ear, or dental abscesses,

- Ticarcillin (Ticar);
- Piperacillin (Pipracil);
- Ampicillin (Unasyn);
These antibiotics all have a similar mechanism of action. They do not kill bacteria, but they stop bacteria from
multiplying by preventing bacteria from forming the walls that surround them. The walls are necessary to protect bacteria from
their environment and to keep the contents of the bacterial cell together. Bacteria cannot survive without a cell wall.
