About Clamp XL Oral Suspension

Clamp XL Oral Suspension is an antibiotic medicine used to treat bacterial infections in children. It is used to treat infections of the skin, throat, ear, and lungs caused by bacteria. A bacterial infection occurs when harmful bacteria enter and grow in the body. These bacteria can infect any part of the body and multiply very quickly. Clamp XL Oral Suspension effectively treats infections caused by bacteria only and does not treat viral infections like flu or a common cold.

Clamp XL Oral Suspension is a combination medicine containing Amoxycillin (penicillin- antibiotic) and Clavulanic acid. Amoxycillin works by inhibiting the formation of the bacterial cell wall (a protective covering) and causing damage to the bacterial cell wall. This eventually leads to the death of the bacterial cell and thus prevents the growth of bacterial infections. Clavulanic acid inhibits the beta-lactamase enzyme, which prevents bacteria from destroying the efficacy of amoxycillin.

Clamp XL Oral Suspension may cause certain side effects in your child, such as indigestion, diarrhoea, nausea, and stomach pain. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your paediatrician. Clamp XL Oral Suspension should be taken as advised by your doctor. Do not give more than the prescribed dose of Clamp XL Oral Suspension to the child. Generally, the dose of the medicine will be decided by your paediatrician depending upon the type and severity of the infection.

Clamp XL Oral Suspension is intended for pediatric use only. Avoid giving Clamp XL Oral Suspension to your child if she/he is allergic to antibiotics. Keep your doctor informed about your child’s health condition, including his current medications and medical history, to rule out any side effects/interactions. Before administration, inform your child’s doctor about liver and kidney disease.
