Unimox (Augmentin)

Rating of sales:          


Unimox is a penicillin antibiotic with a notably broad spectrum of activity. The bi-layer tablets provide an immediate release of amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium and an extended release of amoxicillin. This enhanced formulation prolongs the time that bacteria are exposed to the antibiotic and promotes coverage of tough-to-treat S. pneumoniae.

Also known as:  Augmentin.


Unimox is a brand name for an antibiotic, called co-amoxiclav, that is used to treat a wide range of conditions, from bronchitis to Lyme disease. It is one of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics for children, frequently dispensed for ear infections.

The drug is a combination of two active ingredients: amoxicillin and clavulanic acid. Together, the drugs fight bacteria that would ordinarily be resistant to amoxicillin alone.


Unimox is typically taken orally, in pill form for adults, and in a liquid (often flavored) suspension for little children. Doctors prescribe the drug so often because it works against many types of disease-causing bacteria.

"When I travel I always have some Unimox in my travel bag," because it works against so many common infections, said Dr. Alasdair Geddes, an emeritus professor of infectious diseases at the University of Birmingham in England, who ran some of the first clinical trials of Unimox.

Unimox is one of the workhorses of the pediatrician's office, prescribed for ear infections that are resistant to amoxicillin alone, sore throats and certain eye infections. The drug is also a powerful agent against bronchitis and tonsillitis caused by bacteria (though many cases of sore throat are viral in origin).

In addition, the drug can fight pneumonia, urinary tract infections, gonorrhea, and skin infections. The drug has also been seen as a good potential candidate for treatment of Lyme disease, chlamydia, sinusitis, gastritis and peptic ulcers, according to a 2011 study in the International Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Though Unimox hasn't been conclusively shown to be safe during pregnancy, some studies suggest it is unlikely to do harm to pregnant women or their fetuses, according to a 2004 study in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology. Women who are pregnant should check with their doctors before taking the drug. The Food and Drug Administration classifies Unimox as a class B drug, meaning there is no evidence for harm.


If you take too much this medication, call your healthcare provider or local Poison Control Center, or seek emergency medical attention right away.

If this medication is administered by a healthcare provider in a medical setting, it is unlikely that an overdose will occur. However, if overdose is suspected, seek emergency medical attention.


Store between 20 and 25 degrees C (68 and 77 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Keep bottle closed tightly. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

Serious and occasionally fatal hypersensitivity (anaphylactic) reactions have been reported in patients receiving beta-lactam antibacterials, including Unimox. These reactions are more likely to occur in individuals with a history of penicillin hypersensitivity and/or a history of sensitivity to multiple allergens. Before initiating therapy with Unimox, careful inquiry should be made regarding previous hypersensitivity reactions to penicillins, cephalosporins, or other allergens. If an allergic reaction occurs, Unimox should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted.

Isolation of a bacterial strain at the infectious site and determination of the susceptibility profile may help to guide appropriate antibiotic treatment. However technical difficulties justify interpretative reading to recognize interfering resistance mechanisms from resistance phenotypes. The aim of this article is to give some examples showing interpretative reading of routine sensitivity test data.

In this prospective, multicentre, randomised, non-blinded phase III clinical trial, 475 adult patients with acute sinusitis received a 10-day oral regimen of either moxifloxacin (400 mg once daily) or amoxicillin clavulanate (875 mg twice daily). The primary measure of efficacy was clinical resolution. Secondary outcome measures included clinical relapse at follow-up and evaluation of patient reported outcomes. Of 471 adults comprising the intent-to-treat population (234 moxifloxacin, 237 amoxicillin/clavulanate), moxifloxacin treatment was statistically equivalent to amoxicillin/clavulanate at the test-of-cure visit (85% vs 82%; 95% CI -6%, 13%). Analysis of the efficacy evaluable population, confirmed statistical equivalence (86% vs 84%; 95% CI -7%, 13%). Of note, by day 3 of treatment, significantly more moxifloxacin-treated patients (n = 47; 24%), than amoxicillin/clavulanate-treated patients (n = 28; 14%), reported feeling better (p < 0.02). Frequency of drug-related adverse events were similar between groups: nausea (11% moxifloxacin, 5% amoxicillin/clavulanate) and diarrhoea (3% moxifloxacin, 10% amoxicillin clavulanate). In conclusion, once-daily moxifloxacin is as effective and safe as twice-daily amoxicillin/clavulanate in the treatment of acute sinusitis. Moxifloxacin is associated with more rapid symptomatic relief.

This study tested 212 pneumococcal isolates from 9 institutions for their susceptibilities to penicillin, ampicillin, amoxycillin, amoxycillin/clavulanate, cefaclor, cefuroxime, cefotaxime, imipenem, tetracycline, erythromycin, and clarithromycin using NCCLS-standardized microdilution. Penicillin-insusceptibility was 12.3% [5.7% intermediate (0.12-1 microgram/ml) and 6.6% high-level (> or = 2 micrograms/ml)], tetracycline-insusceptibility (> or = 4 micrograms/ml) 31.1%, and erythromycin-insusceptibility (> or = 0.5 microgram/ml) 31.1% as well. Erythromycin-insusceptible isolates showed cross-insusceptibility to clarithromycin. Penicillin-susceptible isolates were susceptible to all beta-lactams. MICs of all beta-lactams rose with those of penicillin for penicillin-insusceptible isolates. Ampicillin and penicillin were equally potent against penicillin-insusceptible isolates, imipenem, cefotaxime, and amoxycillin +/- clavulanate were more potent (generally 5, 1, and 1 doubling dilution, respectively), and cefuroxime and cefaclor less potent (generally 1 and 6 doubling dilutions, respectively). Most penicillin-insusceptible isolates were high-level resistant to cefaclor (> or = 32 micrograms/ml). Although MICs of all beta-lactams rose with those of penicillin, resistance to penicillin was not absolute in terms of cross-resistance. Most penicillin-intermediate and high-level penicillin-resistant isolates remained fully susceptible and intermediate, respectively, to amoxycillin +/- clavulanate, cefotaxime, and imipenem, but not to cefuroxime. Penicillin-susceptible isolates were 76.9%, 42.3%, and 34.6% co-insusceptible to tetracycline, erythromycin, and tetracycline plus erythromycin, respectively. Most penicillin-, tetracycline-, and erythromycin-insusceptible isolates were of capsular types 23 > 6 > 19 > 32, 19 > 6 > 28 > 23, and 19 > 6 > 14 > 23, respectively. Compared to winter 1994-1995, insusceptibility to penicillin, tetracycline, and erythromycin rose by some 4%, 4%, and 13%, respectively.

The aerobic and anaerobic flora from gingival pockets of 49 dogs with severe gingivitis and periodontitis were cultured. The susceptibility of each isolate to four antimicrobial agents currently approved for veterinary use in the USA (amoxicillin-clavulanic acid; clindamycin; cefadroxil; and enrofloxacin) was determined. Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (Clavamox Pfizer Animal Health) had the highest in-vitro susceptibility against all isolates (96%), all aerobes (94%) and all anaerobes (100%) tested. For gram-negative aerobes, enrofloxacin (Baytril, Bayer Corp.) had the highest in-vitro susceptibility activity. For bacteria associated with treatment of gingivitis, which typically are mixed aerobic/anaerobic and gram-positive/gram-negative organisms, the antimicrobial of choice for clinical use based on these susceptibility tests is amoxicillin-clavulanic acid.

In 23 untreated adult periodontitis patients, the occurrence of beta-lactamase producing periodontal bacteria was determined. In addition to non-selective isolation media, selective isolation and growth of beta-lactamase positive subgingival bacterial species was carried out on blood agar plates supplemented with amoxicillin and plates with amoxicillin+clavulanic acid. Porphyromonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Peptostreptococcus micros, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Bacteroides forsythus and Campylobacter rectus isolates from the non-selective medium were tested for beta-lactamase activity by a nitrocefin disk method (DrySlide) and by a laboratory chromogenic nitrocefin-based test. Isolates from the amoxicillin plates that were absent on the amoxicillin/clavulanic acid plates were identified and tested for beta-lactamase production. Based on the non-selective plates, six of 23 P. intermedia isolates, 2 of 19 B. forsythus isolates and 3 of 23 F. nucleatum isolates were beta-lactamase positive. The beta-lactamase positive species Prevotella loescheii, Prevotella buccae, Prevotella buccalis and Actinomyces spp were recovered from the selective amoxicillin plates. beta-Lactamase positive subgingival species were recovered from 17 of 23 patients (74%) but usually comprised low proportions of the subgingival microbiota (range < 0.01-15%). Comparison of the DrySlide test and the nitrocefin-based laboratory test revealed full agreement of test results. beta-Lactamase activity in whole subgingival plaque was detected in 12 patient samples (52%). It was concluded that beta-lactamase activity in subgingival bacteria in adult periodontitis is a common feature. However, since the majority of the samples showed only low-level enzymatic activity, the clinical relevance of this observation with regard to therapy with unprotected enzyme-susceptible beta-lactams is uncertain, though failure on the other hand, is difficult to rule out when a mechanism of resistance is present. The majority of beta-lactamase positive strains was found among species of the Prevotella genus.

Five infants less than 3 months of age were included in this study, for a frequency of 2.5/1000 hospitalizations in this age group. All were born at term, 4 of 5 were male. Three of the 5 patients had specific clinical signs of parotitis on admission. One patient had septic shock on admission. The ultrasound confirmed the parotitis in all cases. No parotid abscess was demonstrated on imaging. All patients had at least one abnormal inflammatory biological test (WBC, CRP, PCT). Bacteria were identified in 4 of 5 cases: Staphylococcus aureus was isolated in the pus culture of the Stenon duct in 2 patients and a group B Streptococcus was isolated from blood culture of 2 other patients. The duration of intravenous antibiotic therapy varied from 4 to 13 days, and the total duration of antibiotic therapy was between 10 and 16 days. No surgical procedures were needed.

For 12 years, a 26-year-old man had acne conglobata and a non-suppurative diffuse sclerosing osteomyelitis of the mandible as part of a chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis of the sternum, the pelvic bones, and the femoral head, and aseptic arthritis of the knee, the fibulotalar, and the sternoclavicular joints. This fulfills the formal criteria of the SAPHO syndrome. Repeated surgical and antibiotic Cefuroxime Drug Class treatment combined with hyperbaric oxygen caused partial improvement. Complete relief and partial disappearance of the scintigraphic lesions was achieved with long-term corticosteroids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, minocycline, and isotretinoin.

The study enrolled 142 pediatric patients: 70 in the cefditoren group (42 males, 28 females; median age, 7.15 years) and 72 in the amoxicillin/clavulanate group (37 males, 35 females; median age, 6.60 years). Four patients in the cefditoren group were excluded from the study analyses (2 who were noncompliant [used <80% of the assigned medication] and 2 who developed infection at other sites). There were no significant differences in baseline medical history or signs and symptoms between the 2 groups. Rates of improvement at day 14 in the cefditoren and amoxicillin/clavulanate groups were 78.8% (52/66) and 84.7% (61/72), respectively (P = NS). There was no significant difference in the change in S5 scores between groups at day 14. The median time to improvement was 3.0 days in both groups. There were no significant differences between groups in rates of relapse (9.1% and 11.1%) or recurrence (3 Levofloxacina X 500 Mg .0% and 5.6%) of sinus symptoms. The most common adverse event in both groups was diarrhea, occurring in 4.5% of the cefditoren group and 18.1 % of the amoxicillin/clavulanate group (P = 0.02).

The prevalence and cotrimoxazole susceptibility of Streptococcus pneumoniae isolated from sputum of 100 Bactoclav 625 Tablet Uses HIV-positive patients attending the Nigeria Institute of Medical Research clinic was investigated using standard microbiological methods. Eleven of the sputum specimens grew Streptococcus pneumoniae. Antimicrobial susceptibility test showed that all the isolates were sensitive to amoxicillin, augmentin, erythromycin and chloramphenicol but were resistant to cotrimoxazole. Continuous surveillance of S pneumoniae in sputum samples of HIV-positive subjects in this environment is necessary in order to regulate treatment regimen, considering that cotrimoxazole is the drug recommended by WHO for respiratory infections in HIV patients.

The objective of this investigation was to assess retrospectively the safety and the efficacy of oral ciprofloxacin plus cefuroxime axetil compared to the combination of oral ciprofloxacin plus amoxicillin/clavulanate, as initial outpatient treatment, in low-risk cancer patients with fever and neutropenia. We analysed retrospectively 120 episodes of febrile neutropenia, treated on an outpatient basis at 2 different oncology units; 63 episodes were treated with the oral regimen of ciprofloxacin plus amoxicillin/clavulanate and 57 were treated with the combination of oral ciprofloxacin plus cefuroxime. 20 treatment failures were recorded-2 of them among patients receiving ciprofloxacin plus amoxicillin/clavulanate and 18 in the ciprofloxacin plus cefuroxime group. Univariate analysis showed that the administration of ciprofloxacin plus cefuroxime was associated with a worse outcome compared to the regimen ciprofloxacin plus amoxicillin/clavulanate (OR 11, CI 2.42-49.9, p =0.002). In the multivariate model, after adjusting for the absolute number of neutrophils and the duration of neutropenia, the effect of the antibiotic regimen on the outcome disappeared, and no significant differences between the 2 regimens were noted, although the regimen of ciprofloxacin plus cefuroxime was associated with a Anazol 500 Dose trend to a worse outcome (OR 4.74, CI 0.72-31.1, p =0.10). In conclusion, the 2 regimens appeared equally safe and effective but prospective studies are needed to confirm these results.

Beta-lactamase-negative ampicillin-resistant (BLNAR) isolates of Haemophilus influenzae have been emerging in some countries, including Japan. The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute has only a susceptible MIC breakpoint (< or = 1 microg/ml) for piperacillin-tazobactam and a disclaimer comment that BLNAR H. influenzae should be considered resistant, which was adapted without presentation of data. In addition, fluoroquinolone-resistant H. influenzae isolates have recently been occasionally reported worldwide. To address these problems, we examined susceptibilities to beta-lactams, including piperacillin-tazobactam, and ciprofloxacin by microdilution and disk diffusion (only for piperacillin-tazobactam) methods, against a total of 400 recent H. influenzae clinical isolates, including 100 beta-lactamase-negative ampicillin-susceptible, beta-lactamase-positive ampicillin-resistant, BLNAR, and beta-lactamase-positive amoxicillin-clavulanate-resistant (BLPACR) isolates each. BLNAR and BLPACR isolates were tested by PCR using primers that amplify specific regions of the ftsI gene. We also detected mutations in quinolone resistance-determining regions (QRDRs) by direct sequencing of the PCR products of DNA fragments. Among beta-lactams, piperacillin-tazobactam exhibited potent activity against all isolates of H. influenzae, with all MICs at < or = 0.5 microg/ml (susceptible). A disk diffusion breakpoint for piperacillin-tazobactam of > or = 21 mm is proposed. We confirmed that all BLNAR and BLPACR isolates had amino acid substitutions in the ftsI gene and that the major pattern was group III-like (87.5%). One ciprofloxacin-resistant isolate (MIC, 16 microg/ml) and 31 ciprofloxacin-susceptible isolates (MICs, 0.06 to 0.5 microg/ml) had amino acid changes in their QRDRs. Piperacillin-tazobactam Aziwok 500 Mg Dosage was the most potent beta-lactam tested against all classes of H. influenzae isolates. It is possible that fluoroquinolone-resistant H. influenzae will emerge since several clinical isolates carried mutations in their QRDRs.

The total outpatient consumption of antibacterials increased from 15.21 DDD/1000 inhabitant-days Azithromycin 500 Dosage in 1996 to 20.08 in 1999, and decreased to 16.97 in 2003. The consumption of restricted antibiotics decreased from 7.29 in 1999 to 5.25 DDD/1000 inhabitant-days in 2003. There was a positive correlation between antibiotic consumption and the number of newspaper articles (r=0.92), and a negative correlation between the number of diagnostic tests and antibiotic consumption (r=-0.73 for the C-reactive protein test and -0.68 for the streptococcal antigen detection test). Reduced antibiotic consumption was paralleled by a decrease in penicillin resistance among invasive pneumococci. No increase in mastoiditis cases was observed in spite of reduced antibiotic consumption.

Bacterial infections causing acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) frequently require antibacterial treatment. More evidence is needed to guide antibiotic choice. The Moxifloxacin in Acute Exacerbations of Chronic Bronchitis TriaL (MAESTRAL) was a multiregional, randomised, double-blind non-inferiority outpatient study. Patients were aged ≥ 60 yrs, with an Anthonisen type I exacerbation, a forced expiratory volume in 1 s < 60% predicted and two or more exacerbations in the last year. Following stratification by steroid use patients received moxifloxacin 400 mg p.o. q.d. (5 days) or amoxicillin/clavulanic acid 875/125 mg p.o. b.i.d. (7 days). The primary end-point was clinical failure 8 weeks post-therapy in Clindacin Clindamicina 1 Gel the per protocol population. Moxifloxacin was noninferior to amoxicillin/clavulanic acid at the primary end-point (111 (20.6%) out of 538, versus 114 (22.0%) out of 518, respectively; 95% CI -5.89-3.83%). In patients with confirmed bacterial AECOPD, moxifloxacin led to significantly lower clinical failure rates than amoxicillin/clavulanic acid (in the intent-to-treat with pathogens, 62 (19.0%) out of 327 versus 85 (25.4%) out of 335, respectively; p=0.016). Confirmed bacterial eradication at end of therapy was associated with higher clinical cure rates at 8 weeks post-therapy overall (p=0.0014) and for moxifloxacin (p=0.003). Patients treated with oral corticosteroids had more severe disease and higher failure rates. The MAESTRAL study showed that moxifloxacin was as effective as amoxicillin/clavulanic acid in the treatment of outpatients with AECOPD. Both therapies were well tolerated.

Four hundred and fifty-nine blood culture isolates were tested for susceptibility to ticarcillin alone and ticarcillin plus clavulanic acid, a potent beta-lactamase inhibitor. The susceptibilities of the Staphylococcus aureus strains to cloxacillin, methicillin, vancomycin, rifampicin, cefoperazone, ceftriaxone and moxalactam and of the gram Azimac Dosage Forms -negative strains to Augmentin, azlocillin, mezlocillin, piperacillin, cefoperazone, ceftriaxone, cefotaxime, cefsulodin and tobramycin were also measured. Seventy-one percent of staphylococcal strains were beta-lactamase positive. In the presence of clavulanic acid the ticarcillin spectrum was extended to include beta-lactamase producing Staphylococcus aureus, Serratia marcescens and Klebsiella. All the ticarcillin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae were rendered ticarcillin-sensitive by clavulanic acid. The anti-Pseudomonas activity of ticarcillin plus clavulanic acid differed little from that of azlocillin and piperacillin and was comparable to that of the third generation cephalosporins. The combination of ticarcillin with clavulanic acid should be tested in the treatment of patients with infections caused by ticarcillin-sensitive and ticarcillin-resistant bacteria.
