Flucamox is a combination of two broad spectrum semi synthetic penicillin: Amoxycillin & Flucloxacillin.
Covers a wide range of Gm-ve microorganisms. Unlike Ampicillin the absorption of Amoxycillin is not affected by the presence of food in the stomach. It also produces higher plasma and tissue concentration than those obtained by the same dose of ampicillin.
Flucloxacillin (isoxazolyl penicillin ):
Is resistant to penicillinase enzyme and thus it acts on penicillinase producing micro-organisms including most Staphylococci.
Flucamox is well absorbed from the G.I.T with high peak blood levels that last for more than 8 hours.
