Q.

What is clavulanic acid?
Clavulanic acid is a beta-lactamase inhibitor. It inactivates beta-lactamase enzyme produced by some bacteria and thus prevents the breakdown of the antibiotic when given along with it.

Q.

What does clavulanic acid do when added to amoxicillin?
Amoxicillin is a semisynthetic penicillin (beta-lactam antibiotic) that is easily broken down by beta-lactamases produced by resistant bacteria. Clavulanic acid is a beta-lactam structurally related to penicillins and it inactivates some beta-lactamase enzymes thereby preventing the breakdown of amoxicillin. Clavulanic acid alone does not exert a clinically useful antibacterial effect.

Q.

What are the side effects of clavulanic acid?
Clavulanic acid can cause hepatitis and allergy. However, since the drug is always given in combination with a beta-lactam antibiotic, there can be many side effects of this combination. Consult your doctor if you experience any side effects while using this combination.

Q.

What are the side effects of amoxicillin and clavulanic acid combination?
Common side effects associated with the use of Amoxicillin and clavulanic acid combination are diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and mucocutaneous candidosis. Talk to your doctor in case you experience these or other side effects while taking amoxicillin and clavulanic acid combination.

Q.

What is the molecular weight of clavulanic acid?
The molecular weight of clavulanic acid is 199.16 g/mol.

Q.

Clavulanic acid can be taken with alcohol. No interactions have been reported between the two. However, interactions can occur. Talk to your doctor regarding its use with alcohol.

Q.

Can clavulanic acid be taken with cefuroxime?
Fixed dose combinations of cefuroxime with clavulanic acid are available in India. However, there is not enough research to prove the efficacy and safety of cefuroxime combined with clavulanic acid.

Q.

Can I take clavulanic acid with penicillin?
Clavulanic acid is a beta-lactamase enzyme inhibitor which is available as a fixed-dose combination penicillin antibiotics like amoxicillin and ticarcillin. It is not available for use as a single agent. Talk to your doctor for further information on the same.

Q.

Is clavulanic acid and sulbactam same?
Sulbactam is a beta-lactamase inhibitor like clavulanic acid. They do not have any action on the bacteria. Clavulanic acid is commonly used when combined with amoxicillin and sulbactam is commonly used when combined with ampicillin. They increase the antibacterial action of these antibiotics.

Q.

Is clavulanic acid same as dicloxacillin?
Dicloxacillin is a beta-lactam antibiotic whereas clavulanic acid is a beta-lactamase inhibitor. Dicloxacillin is not combined with clavulanic acid since it is inherently resistant to degradation by beta-lactamase enzyme and would not need any inhibitor for increasing its action.
