Amoxil is an analogue to ampicillin with the same bactericidal action against susceptible organisms when they actively grow and develop in the body.
Amoxicillin works to fight the bacteria through the restriction of the process of biosynthesis of cell wall mucopeptide.
The medicine is working against most strains of the microorganisms in the following list:
1) Aerobic gram-positive
• Enterococcus faecalis
• Staphylococcus spp.
• Streptococcus pneumoniae
• Streptococcus spp. (?- and ?-hemolytic strains only)
2) Aerobic Gram-Negative Microorganisms
• Escherichia coli (?-lactamase–negative strains)
• Haemophilus influenzae (?-lactamase–negative strains)
• Neisseria gonorrhoeae (?-lactamase–negative strains)
• Proteus mirabilis (?-lactamase–negative strains)
• Helicobacter pylori
The use of Amoxil should be determined by a medical professional in the presence of certain lab tests if necessary.
Amoxil was carefully tested for detecting susceptible bacteria properties. The minimum amount of this medicine for inhibition of bacteria was determined with special measuring methods.
Antimicrobial minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of Amoxil give the information about the bacteria sensitivity to amoxicillin.
Different types of bacteria were proved to be sensitive to amoxicillin. The medicine is highly effective against most types of pathogen microorganisms and can inhibit the bacteria even in very small concentrations. The levels of amoxicillin should still be stable in the body for getting the proper treatment results.
Amoxil treatment for Helicobacter pylori infection
The treatment with Amoxil in combination with other medicines is chosen as a first line therapy for infections induced by Helicobacter pylori. If the disease is diagnosed the currently available Amoxil/clarithromycin/lansoprazole triple therapy should be applied.
Before application of this triple therapy, a person should be tested for the existence of H. pylori bacteria and the sensitivity of H. pylori for clarithromycin.
H. pylori eradication with Amoxil/clarithromycin/lansoprazole improves the general resistance of the body against formation of ulcers. The recommended dose of the therapy includes: 1 gr of Amoxil, 500 mg of clarithromycin, 30 mg of lansoprazole. The medicines should be used 2 times a day with 12 hours between doses. The frequency of the treatment is 14 days.
Important facts about Amoxil
• Amoxil prevents the growth of bacteria and kills them.
• Amoxil treats different bacterial disorders but is useless for viruses.
• Steady levels of Amoxil in the blood system help to cure the infection better.
• Amoxil is used with other drugs to treat certain stomach ulcers produced by H. pylori.
• Amoxicillin is the main component of Amoxil. Amoxil is manufactured in many forms including traditional tablets, liquid drops, and suspension.
• The use of Amoxil can decrease the effects of birth control pills.
• Amoxil can interact with other medicines.
• Amoxicillin is a very safe antibiotic which can be used in children and pregnant women.
• Amoxil can produce side effects, including very serious allergic reactions.
Amoxil formula removes unwanted and pathogen bacteria from the body, cures and eradicates infections.
Some patients may develop skin effects caused by Amoxil treatment. They can have redness and itchiness in the mouth or vagina after taking a course of Amoxil.
In these cases a patient should ask his/her doctor for advice.
Amoxil liquid may cause removable spots on teeth, especially in children. The spots can be easily cleaned. Still the spots appearance should be reported to a doctor or pediatrician.
