Ampicillin is a beta-lactam antibiotic that has been used extensively in Kenya to treat bacterial infections. It is effective against gram-negative organisms such as H. influenzae, coliforms and Proteus SPP. As with other penicillin drugs, ampicillin is relatively non-toxic and adverse effects of a serious nature are rarely encountered.
Cloxacillin is a semisynthetic antibiotic in the same class as penicillin used against staphylococci that produce beta-lactamase. It has a weaker antibacterial activity than benzylpenicillin, and is devoid of serious toxicity except for allergic reactions.
Ampicillin+Cloxacillin Capsules are used to treat respiratory tract infections, ear, nose and throat infections, pelvic infections, urinary tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections, and gastro- intestinal infections. Or any other as deemed valid according to the prescriber.
