Megamentin 1000 is a penicillin-type antibiotic produced by Intas Pharmaceuticals. This product is a combination of two medicines: Amoxicillin which is an antibiotic and Potassium Clavulanate which is a beta-lactamase inhibitor. It is used to treat bacterial infections of the ear, sinus, throat, lung, urinary tract, skin, teeth, joints and bones. It will not work for viral infections such as the common cold. It is commonly used to treat the skin condition called acne which is caused by bacteria.
Properties and effects
Also, the two substances work together to kill the bacteria that cause infections. Amoxicillin stops the growth of bacteria and Potassium Clavulanate reduces resistance and enhances the activity of Amoxicillin against bacteria. The overall action of the drug works by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering which is essential for the survival of bacteria.
Recommendations for use
Also, the dosage of the drug required depends on the severity of the infection. Generally, one 1000mg tablet is taken twice a day (ideally every 12 hours). The symptoms of infection should be reduced within a few days but the drug should be taken for a few more days, even after symptoms disappear, to ensure that all of the bacteria is killed.
Some people may find that, during the use of the drug, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting occur. If any of these side effects become constant, consult a medical specialist immediately. If the medication is taken with food, it will help to reduce the risk of stomach upset.
