What is Amoxicillin?
Amoxicillin is an antibiotic. Amoxicillin works by inhibiting penicillin-binding proteins and high molecular weight penicillin-binding protein. Amoxicillin is used to treat bacterial infections, such as ear, nose or throat infections, urinary tract infections, skin infections, and pneumonia (lower respiratory tract). Amoxicillin can also be used for the medical treatment of acute otitis media, streptococcal pharyngitis, Salmonella infections, Lyme disease, and chlamydia infections.
If Amoxicillin is administered in combination with another medication, it can treat other infections. Amoxicillin and Clavulanic Acid can be used to treat acute bacterial sinusitis, community-acquired pneumonia, and lower respiratory tract infections. If Amoxicillin is given in combination with Omeprazole, it can be used for the treatment of H. pylori.
Amoxicillin was discovered in 1958 at Beecham, England. Amoxicillin was approved for medical use in 1972 in the UK. In 1974, the FDA approved the medical use of Amoxicillin; Amoxicillin is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines.
