Amoxil clinical pharmacology
Amoxil (Amoxicillin) remains stable in the acid of the stomach when used orally. It is quickly absorbed and distributed to the tissues and organs of the body. The medicine disseminates in the fluids, except brain and spinal fluid. In case of inflammation of the meninges the medicine is found in the brain and spinal fluids.
Light meal can be used with the medicine. The use of the food does not seem to significantly affect the absorption of the medicine and its properties.
The peak plasma levels of the medicine are observed within 1-2 hours post oral tablet dose. The same parameters are applied to the oral suspension form of the drug.
The remains of the medicine in the body can be detected within 8 hours after the oral dose. About 60-80% of the orally administered Amoxicillin is eliminated in the urine within 6-8 hours. Certain medicines (such as probenecid) can setback the excretion of Amoxicillin from the body.
The half-life of the medicine is about 1 hour. Amoxicillin is approximately 20% protein-bound.
Tolerance to the medicine
Antibiotics should be given only to a person who has confirmed manifestations of the bacterial disease. The uncontrolled use of antibiotics or self-treatment often leads to resistance of gems to the antibiotics.
So, it is absolutely necessary to consult a doctor before using any of the antibacterial agents or antibiotics.
Amoxil is a rather new medicine on the market among the antibiotics, which has shown nice effects. It is usually well-tolerated and does not cause any serious side effects. This antibiotic is used in children and older patients, as well, as in pregnant women.
