Amofluxin is an inseparable combination of amoxycillin and flucloxacillin to exhibit a bactericidal action against a wide range of Gram-positive micro-organisms (non-penicillinase, penicillinase-producing Staphylococci and Streptococcus spp.) and Gram-negative micro-organisms (E. Coli, H. influenzae, N. Gonorrboeae, Salmonella enteritis & P. mirabilis) in addition to anaerobic micro-organisms (Clostridium spp., Peptococcus and peptostreptococcus spp.).
Both amoxycillin and flucloxacillin are well absorbed when given orally and have gastric stability. Amoxycillin (aminopenicillin) is more rapidly and completely absorbed than ampicillin and produces a higher peak plasma concentration of similar dose of ampicillin. Flucloxacillin (isoxazolyl penicillin) is better absorbed than cloxacillin sodium and characterized by its successful resistance to penicillinase-producing Staphylococci.
