Augmentin 375mg Tablet 10's
Augmentin 375mg Tablet 10's belongs to a group of antibiotics known as penicillin combination. It is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that works against various types of bacteria. Augmentin 375mg Tablet 10's is made up of two medicines: Amoxicillin (the active part of antibiotic) and Clavulanic acid (that boosts the efficacy of the amoxicillin).

Infectious or harmful bacteria can make you sick and reproduce quickly in your body. These harmful bacteria produce chemicals known as toxins, which can damage tissue and make you sick. Amoxicillin acts by destroying the outer protein layer thereby killing the bacteria (bactericidal).

As a result, action of Clavulanic acid allows Amoxicillin to work better and kill the bacteria. Augmentin 375mg Tablet 10's does not work against infections caused by virus including cold and flu.
