APO-Amoxi (Amoxicillin) 250mg

Apo-Amoxi general information

What is Apo-Amoxi used for?

Apo-Amoxi 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 and pharyngitis, 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). Apo-Amoxi 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. Apo-Amoxi 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 Apo-Amoxi work?

Apo-Amoxi capsules 250mg contain amoxycillin, which is as an antibiotic similar to penicillin and belongs to the beta-lactam group of antibiotics. Amoxycillin in Apo-Amoxi 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. Apo-Amoxi 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, amoxycillin 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 amoxycillin.

What about bacterial resistance to Apo-Amoxi?

Apo-Amoxi capsules 250mg contain amoxycillin, 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. Amoxycillin 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 amoxycillin. This is why amoxycillin is sometimes used in combination with another antibiotic, clavulanic acid that is able to inactivate bacterial beta-lactamase enzymes.
