Amoxicillin(250 mg)


Amoxicillin belongs to a class of antibiotic medicines called penicillin. It is used to treat bacterial infections of the respiratory tract (bronchitis, pneumonia), genital and urinary tract (gonorrhoea, ), skin and soft tissue, ear (otitis media); nose, sinus, and throat (tonsillitis, sinusitis); heart (endocarditis), kidney, urethra or bladder, blood (septicemia), teeth and gums (abcesses), typhoid and paratyphoid fever.

How it works

Amoxicillin kills bacteria by interfering with the production of the bacterial cell wall (outer coating of bacteria). As a result, the bacterial cell wall is weakened and ruptured, thereby killing the bacteria.

Common side effects

Nausea, Allergic reaction, Diarrhoea, Headache, Rash, Stomach pain, Vaginal itching, Vaginal discharge, Vomiting
Clavulanic Acid(125 mg)


Clavulanic acid is used to increase the effect of certain antibiotics (amoxicillin) to treat bacterial infections of the respiratory tract (bronchitis, pneumonia), urinary tract, ear, nose, sinus and throat, skin and soft tissues, bone and joints, and to prevent infections after surgery.

How it works

Clavulanic acid belongs to a group of medicines called beta-lactamase inhibitors. It blocks the activity of a chemical (beta-lactamase), which is secreted by bacteria to protect themselves from antibiotic drugs like amoxicillin, thereby allowing the antibiotics to act against the bacteria. It does not kill bacteria and is never used alone to treat infections.

Common side effects

Diarrhoea, Indigestion, Rash, Itching, Vomiting

How it works

Lactobacillus is a family of useful bacteria found naturally in the mouth, intestine and vagina. Products containing lactobacillus are used as ‘probiotics’ that help restore the levels of these good bacteria. It provides health benefits by assisting break down of food and absorption of nutrients; also stimulating the body’s immune response. It also produces substances that suppress or kill harmful bacteria and creates an unfavorable environment for the growth of disease causing bacteria.
