Product Description

Generic Amoxil belongs to a group of antibiotics called Penicillins. It has a bactericide action against gram-positive bacteria (excluding those able to produce penicillinase) and gram-negative ones (E. Coli, Pr. mirabilis, Salmonella and others). The antibacterial activity results from the diffusion through cell walls and fixing on specific targets. After being administered the drug is rapidly absorbed (70-80%). Amoxicillin is partially biodegraded in penicillin acid, 20% of the administered dose being found in urine, 70-80% is found in an active form also in urine and 5-10% in excreted by the bile.

There are several bacteria not sensible to Generic Amoxil: Acinetobacter, Enterobacter, Citrobacter, Providentia, Pseudomonas, Serratia, Klebsiella, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma, Rickettsia.
