Alphamox general information

What is Alphamox used for?

Alphamox capsules 250mg are a broad spectrum antibiotic used to treat common infections caused by a variety of bacteria in different parts of the body, including upper and lower respiratory tract infections, such as bronchitis, tonsillitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis and pneumonia; otitis medis (ear infection); urinary tract infections such as cystitis and urethritis; infections of the skin and soft tissue; peritonitis; the sexually transmitted disease gonorrhoea; gynaecological infections including those following childbirth (puerperal sepsis) and septic abortion; dental infection like abscess, typhoid and paratyphoid fever; septicaemia (bacterial infection of the blood). Alphamox capsules 250mg are also used to treat bacterial endocarditis (infection of the heart valves and lining); and as prophylaxis (to prevent) against bacterial endocarditis, which can develop after some surgical procedures such as dental extraction, particularly for anyone with a condition that puts them at risk of developing bacterial endocarditis. Alphamox capsules 250mg are also used in combination with other medication to treat peptic ulcers (duodenal and gastric) caused by infection with Helicobacter pylori.

How does Alphamox work?

Alphamox capsules 250mg contain amoxicillin, which is as an antibiotic similar to penicillin and belongs to the beta-lactam group of antibiotics. Amoxicillin in Alphamox capsules 250mg contains a structure called the beta-lactam ring, which blocks the formation of the bacterial cell wall in susceptible bacteria, and this kills the bacteria. Alphamox capsules 250mg are effective against a wide range of common bacteria found in general practice and in hospitals including: Streptococci and non-resistant Staphylococci, salmonellae; Haemophilus; Neisseria; Helicobacter pylori that causes peptic ulcers; among others. However, amoxicillin can be inactivated by an enzyme called beta-lactamase, produced by resistant bacteria, such as some staphylococci, which destroys its beta-lactam ring and makes those bacteria resistant to amoxicillin.

What about bacterial resistance to Alphamox?

Alphamox capsules 250mg contain amoxicillin, which is as an antibiotic similar to penicillin and belongs to the beta-lactam group of antibiotics, because it contains a structure called the beta-lactam ring which blocks the formation of the bacterial cell wall in susceptible bacteria, and this kills the bacteria. Amoxicillin can be inactivated by an enzyme called beta-lactamase, produced by some bacteria, such as some staphylococci, which destroys its beta-lactam ring and makes those bacteria resistant to amoxicillin. This is why amoxicillin is sometimes used in combination with another antibiotic, clavulanic acid that is able to inactivate bacterial beta-lactamase enzymes.
