Amoxyclav 625 is a combination antibiotic medication that contains amoxicillin and clavulanic acid.
It is commonly prescribed to treat various bacterial infections.
Amoxicillin is a penicillin-type antibiotic that helps to kill bacteria, while clavulanic acid helps to enhance the
Effectiveness of amoxicillin by inhibiting certain enzymes produced by bacteria that can inactivate the antibiotic.
Amoxyclav is used to treat respiratory tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections, and other types of infections
caused by susceptible bacteria.
The dose and duration of treatment can vary depending on specific infections and an individual’s medical condition.

How Amoxyclav 625 Works?
Amoxiclav 625mg is a combination of amoxicillin and clavulanic acid.
Whereas amoxicillin targets the bacterial cell wall, which is a protective layer surrounding the bacteria,
It interferes with the synthesis of the cell wall, weakening it and causing it to rupture. This leads to the death of bacteria and helps to clear infections.
And, clavulanic acid is a beta-lactamase inhibitor. Beta-lactamase is an enzyme produced by some bacteria
that can inactivate certain antibiotics, including penicillin.
By combining amoxicillin and clavulanic acid in amoxiclav 625mg, the medication can effectively
treat bacterial infections, that may be resistant to amoxicillin alone.
