effect

  • Works by destroying the bacterial cell wall so that they go to the ground. The agent is effective against several different bacterial species than ordinary penicillin and is thus broad-spectrum.
  • The half life in the blood (T?) is approximately 1 hour.

Pharmaceutical forms

Tablets. 1 tablet (film-coated) contains 500 mg or 750 mg of amoxicillin (as trihydrate).


Special warnings

Amoxicillin "Orifarm" should be used with caution:

  • In any treatment with an antibiotic, the bacteria may become insensitive (resistant) to the used agent and any other antibiotics. Amoxicillin "2care4" is broad-spectrum, and the risk of development of resistance is therefore greater than with ordinary penicillin.
  • You will often notice an improvement already after two days, but you must continue treatment after the doctor's instructions

Using other medicines

It is important to inform your doctor about all the medicines you are taking.
  • Probenecid (antidiabetic agent) may potentiate the effect of Amoxicillin "Orifarm".
  • Other types of antibiotics (erythromycin and tetracycline) reduce the effect of Amoxicillin "Orifarm".
  • Amoxicillin "Orifarm" can rarely reduce the effect of birth control pills.
