About AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE

AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE belongs to the group of antibiotics called 'penicillin' used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections. It is a 'broad-spectrum antibiotic' that treats various bacterial infections of the ear, nose, throat, bones, lungs, and post-operative wound infections. Bacterial infections are caused due to the multiplication of harmful bacteria inside or on the body. These harmful bacteria produce chemicals known as toxins, which can damage tissue and make you sick.

AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE contains two penicillin antibiotics, namely: Ampicillin and Dicloxacillin. AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE works by preventing the formation of bacterial cell covering, which is necessary for their survival. Thereby, kills the bacteria and helps in treating and preventing the spread of infections. AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE does not work against infections caused by the virus, including cold and flu.
 
Take AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE as advised by your doctor. The capsule form of AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE should be swallowed as a whole, do not crush or chew the tablet. A healthcare professional will administer the injection form of AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE, do not self-administer. The dose and duration of AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE can vary depending upon your condition and the severity of the infection. Also, it is recommended to complete the course of medicine even if you feel better as it is an antibiotic. Leaving it in between may lead to even severe infection that will, in fact, stop responding to the antibiotic (antibiotic resistance). In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as diarrhea, rashes, nausea, stomach pain, allergic reaction, and vomiting. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.
 
Before starting AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE, please inform your doctor if you have any allergy (against any antibiotic), kidney or liver problems. Do not take AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE on your own as self-medication may lead to antibiotic-resistance in which antibiotics fail to act against specific bacterial infections. Avoid taking AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE if you are pregnant or breastfeeding unless prescribed by a doctor. Avoid alcohol consumption to prevent unpleasant side-effects. Inform your doctor about all the medicines you are taking and your health condition to rule out any unpleasant side-effects. AMPILOX 500MG CAPSULE is used with caution in gastrointestinal diseases.
