Ampicillin + Cloxacillin is a combination of two antibiotics: Ampicillin + Cloxacillin1 and Ampicillin + Cloxacillin2. These antibiotics work by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering which is essential for the survival of bacteria. Together, they treat your infection effectively.
Usually, Clotrop starts working soon after using it. However, it may take some days to kill all the harmful bacteria and make you feel better.
Q. Can I stop taking Clotrop when I feel better?
No, do not stop taking Clotrop and complete the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cured.
Q. What is Clotrop used for?
Clotrop is used to treat patients with bacterial infections. It is a semi-synthetic derivative of the drug penicillin. It is used to treat urinary tract and respiratory tract infections, meningitis, gonorrhea and infections of the stomach or intestine.
Q. Which medicines should be avoided while taking Clotrop?
Clotrop should be avoided with methotrexate which is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and some forms of cancer. This is because combining the two medications can cause some serious side effects.
