Uses
Ospamox (Amoxycillin) (sometimes spelled amoxicillin) is an antibiotic administered as an oral suspension for the treatment of infections caused by bacteria. It is generally considered to be better absorbed than other beta lactam antibiotics and for this reason it has been used more often than similar antibiotics in this class. Conditions treated include ear infections, urinary tract infections, lung infections, sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhoea, skin infections and various others not listed here. It has also been used alongside other medications to help eradicate helicobacter pyloria, a type of bacteria which can affect the stomach and contribute to peptic ulcers.

The active ingredient in this medicine is said to be semi-synthetic, and is a type of aminiopenicillin with bacteriocidal properties (meaning that it destroys susceptible bacteria). Its exact mode of action is complicated and involves blocking the synthesis of the peptidoglycan layer on the cell walls of the bacteria.

This layer is a type of polymer (molecule) made from amino acids and sugars which is formed on the outside of the bacterial plasma membrane, contributing to the formation of cells. It is considered to be the key component of the cell walls in microorganisms. Without cell walls, the bacteria are destroyed. Although it is active against a considerable amount of gram-negative and gram positive bacteria, it is not effective against bacteria that produce beta-lactamase.

Dosage and Administration
Ospamox (Amoxycillin) is provided as a powder which is mixed with water so as to form a suspension. When reconstituted, each 5ml will contain 250mg of the active ingredient. It is possible that your doctor will instruct you to use 92ml of water to make 100ml of the suspension. After mixing it, you will need to shake it well. Ensure that it is stored at a suitable temperature. It should be used within 14 days of mixing.

The dosage needed can vary, and your doctor will determine the correct amount of medicine required based on the condition being treated. Patients treating skin infections, infections of the upper respiratory tract or urinary tract infections may be directed to take 250mg at 8 hour intervals. Severe infections may require a different dosage. Treatment will need to continue for as long as the doctor deems necessary. Other infections may require a different dosage regimen. Follow the instructions given by your doctor.

Side effects
Ospamox (Amoxycillin) may cause:

  • Itching
  • Vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Loose stools
  • Stomach disturbances

Tell your doctor if any side effects occur. There is a possibility of severe reactions occurring. You will need to go and see your doctor immediately if you experience blistering of the skin, bruising, severe fatigue or any other serious symptoms.

Precautions
Antibiotics are not to be used for viral infections as they only work against bacteria.

Regular blood tests and other medical examinations on the function of your liver and kidney may be required to ensure that this medicine does not cause any negative reactions.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Ospamox (Amoxycillin) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
