Xtraclav Tablet ER is a combination of two medicines: Amoxicillin and Potassium Clavulanate. Amoxicillin is an antibiotic. It works by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering which is essential for the survival of bacteria in the human body. Potassium Clavulanate is a beta-lactamase inhibitor which blocks the action of enzymes produced by bacteria to inactivate amoxicillin. Addition of Potassium Clavulanate reduces resistance and enhances the activity of Amoxicillin against bacteria.
