Benefits of Carlymox Capsule

In Respiratory tract infection

Respiratory tract infections are those infections that can affect the sinuses, throat, airways or lungs. Carlymox 250 mg/150 mg Capsule contains two different medicines, Amoxycillin and Carbocisteine, that work together to kill the bacteria that cause respiratory tract infections. Amoxycillin works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Carbocisteine helps to loosen thick mucus, making it easier to cough out. This makes it easier for air to move in and out. It also enhances the activity of Amoxycillin against bacteria.
It usually makes you feel better within a few days, but you should continue taking it as prescribed even when you feel better to make sure that all bacteria are killed and do not become resistant.

Carlymox 250 mg/150 mg Capsule is a combination of two medicines: Amoxycillin and Carbocisteine which treat respiratory tract infections associated with excessive mucus (phlegm).
