Before using this medicine it is absolutely necessary to consult your doctor. аугTo prevent the development of drug-resistant bacteria in your body, it is essential to start the treatment with any antibiotic, including this one, only with great evidence of bacteria causing the disease.

Augmentin contains active agent amoxicillin, a semisynthetic antibiotic possessing a broad scale of antibacterial features. The medicine is very active against a variety of gram -positive and gram-negative bacteria. The other active component in the medicine is clavulanic acid that is able to make inert β-lactamase enzymes which can resist to other antibiotics such as penicillin and cephalosporin.
аугмThis chemical composition of a medicine makes it possible to use Augmentin for the treatment of a wide range of bacterial diseases, even those which seem to be resistant to other antibiotics.
Amoxicillin with clavulanic acid fights against most strains of the bacteria, listed below:
Gram-Positive Aerobes (Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalise, Enterococcus faecalise, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus saprophyticus, other types of Staphylococcus).
Gram-Negative Aerobes ( Enterobacter species, Escherichia coli, Haemophilus influenza, Klebsiella species, Moraxella catarrhalis, Eikenella corrodens, Neisseria gonorrhoeaee, Proteus mirabilise).

Anaerobic Bacteria (Bacteroides species, Fusobacterium species, Peptostreptococcus species).

Augmentin description

Augmentin is an oral antibacterial agent consisting of two main components – semisynthetic antibiotic amoxicillin and the β-lactamase inhibitor, clavulanate potassium (the potassium salt of clavulanic acid).
Amoxicillin is derivative of the basic penicillin nucleus; clavulanic acid is produced by Streptomyces clavuligerus fermentation. The acid is close to penicillin with properties to restrict the active sites of β-lactamases enzymes. The acid is effective against the plasmid-mediated β-lactamases which is proven to be responsible for the development of drug resistance to penicillins and cephalosporins.
Augmentin is available in the dosage forms of film coated tablets. The medicine like any other antibiotic agent should be used to treat infectious diseases which are proven to be caused by bacteria susceptible to the drug.
