Augmentin tablet Information

Brand name Or ID AUGMENTIN 618039
 Full generic name Amoxicillin 1000 MG / Clavulanate 62.5 MG Extended-Release Tablet

augmentin tablet concentration 1000-62.5 mg

Indication of Augmentin tablet :

AUGMENTIN is indicated in the treatment of different infections caused by various type of organism listed below

  • Lower Respiratory Tract Infections of H. influenzae and M. catarrhalis.
  • Otitis Media –acute or chronic otitis media caused by H. influenzae or M. catarrhalis.
  • tonsillitis and pharyngeal suppuration
  • Sinusitis – acute or chronic sinusitis caused by H. influenzae and M. catarrhalis.
  • Skin and Skin Structure Infections.
  • UTI (Urinary Tract Infections) – caused by β-lactamase–producing strains of E. coli, Klebsiella spp. and Enterobacter spp.

Augmentin is indicated just for the infections listed above, infections caused by ampicillin and amoxicillin-antibiotic sensitive organism are also sensitive and response will to treatment with the Augmentin due to its
amoxicillin content.

so, mixed infections caused by ampicillin and amoxicillin-antibiotic sensitive organism and β-lactamase bacteria sensitive to drugs mostly require the addition of another antibiotic.

Because amoxicillin-antibiotic has greater in vitro activity against S. pneumoniae than does ampicillin or penicillin, most of S. pneumoniae strains with moderate sensitivity to ampicillin or penicillin are fully sensitive to amoxicillin-antibiotic and drug.


To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the power of drugs and other antibacterial drugs, drugs should be used just to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by sensitive bacteria. When culture and sensitivity information are available, they are more important in selecting or changing antibacterial therapy.

In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and sensitivity patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy.


the microbial study, to know the causative bacteria-organism and their response to drugs should be performed together with any indicated surgical procedures.

The dose of augmentin (Amoxicillin 1000 MG / Clavulanate 62.5 MG ) depends on the severity of the disease and age and weight of the patient’s usual dose prescribed for adult one tablet orally BID every 12 hours.

Precaution and toxicity
  • The amoxicillin-clavulanate suspension (augmentin syrup) has low toxicity of the penicillin group.
  • But periodic lab investigation including renal, hepatic, and hematopoietic function is advisable if a long period of Augmentin suspension was approved for administration.
  • A high percentage of patients with mononucleosis who receive ampicillin or augmentin develop an erythematous skin rash.
  • Ampicillin-class antibiotics shouldn’t be administered to patients with mononucleosis.
  • The infections with mycotic or bacterial pathogens should be considered during therapy.
  • If infections occur during treatment as Pseudomonas and Candida.
  • the drug should be stopped and contact your doctor as soon as possible.
  • Prescribing AUGMENTIN ES-600 within the absence of a proven or strongly suspected bacterial infection and a prophylactic indication is unlikely to supply benefit to the patient and increases the danger of the development of drug-resistant bacteria.
