Each tablet contains:
Amoxycillin (as trihydrate) 500 mg

ACTIONS:

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.).

PROPERTIES:

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.
