Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics
The tool has a wide spectrum of action due to the main components. The concentration of amoxicillin actively fights with many gram-positive, gram-negative microorganisms. Amoxicillin does not produce microorganisms that produce beta-lactamases, because the substance is subject to destruction by this enzyme. The second active ingredient clavulanic acid slows down the action of beta-lactamases. It is able to reduce the activity of beta-lactamase.
The combination of amoxicillin, clavulanic acid has an antibacterial effect on the whole body, helping it to cope with diseases faster. Amoxicillin is excreted by the kidneys of the patient. The antibacterial drug Augmentin is taken orally and absorbed from the digestive tract, then the drug helps to destroy the bacteria that cause the disease. Augmentin absorption falls on the tubular secretion of amoxicillin.
