The oral medication Megamentin 1000, produced by Intas Pharmaceuticals contains a combination of two medications. These include the beta-lactamase inhibitor potassium clavulanate and the antibiotic amoxicillin, which together kill bacteria. The medication is used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections of the skin, teeth, joints, bones, lungs, sinuses, and urinary tract. Acne is a common skin condition brought on by bacteria in the skin and is frequently treated with it.
Properties and effects of Megamentin-1000
Together, the various components of the drug can effectively kill the bacteria that cause infections because each component of the drug acts differently. The action of amoxicillin is to stop the development of bacteria. It accomplishes this by preventing the development of the protective layer that is necessary for bacteria to survive.
Amoxicillin’s effectiveness is increased, and bacterial resistance is decreased thanks to potassium clavulanate.
Amoxicillin application and dosage
The amount of medication needed depends on how bad the infection is. Typically, two 1000 mg tablets per day are taken (ideally, one every 12 hours). The drug should be taken for a few more days, even after the symptoms go away, to make sure that all of the bacteria are killed. The symptoms of infection should begin to lessen in a few days.
Side effects from Amoxicillin pills
Stomach upset is one of the medication’s common side effects, but this can be avoided by taking the drug with food. Other side effects include nausea, vomiting, or diarrhoea, which should go away once the drug is stopped being taken.
Reviews of Intas’ Megamentin-1000
Amoxicillin is popular among bodybuilders who use injectable steroids that have short half-lives, which demand more frequent injections, to treat any infections at the injection site.
