Augmentin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, so its use must be strictly indicated, otherwise avoid
complications such as dysbiosis - augmentin kills not only the pathogen, but also intestinal
microflora, which arise due to digestive disorders (a sign of dysbiosis), and in the intestinal
wall may begin inflammation (colitis).
Application augmentin for treating diseases of the upper and lower respiratory tract, and
Augmentin is used for treating acute respiratory and ENT usually not waiting for the results of
research on the sensitivity of the pathogen to antibiotics, because in this case not possible to
wait a few days. The decision to appoint a doctor takes an antibiotic.
Augmentin it is often the drug of choice, as it has a broad spectrum of activity and resistance
against different infectious agents. Augmentin has a combined structure: semi-synthetic penicillin,
amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid. Amoxicillin is an effective antibiotic, but has the disadvantage
(like all drugs penicillin) - inactivated by the action of enzymes that produce certain types of
infectious agents. These enzymes are called pnitsillinazami or beta-lactamases and to suppress
their action amoxicillin clavulanic acid is present. In this regard, augmentin has a broad spectrum
of activity than the penicillins and can be used in a variety of diseases caused by bacterial
Augmentin produced in the form of tablets or suspensions for oral administration, as well as a
solution for intravenous injection and infusion. When mild upper respiratory tract disease the
drug is prescribed inside, with severe respiratory diseases such as pneumonia and pleurisy
(they are treated only in a hospital), - in the form of parenteral administration.
In the treatment of exacerbations of chronic diseases of the lungs and respiratory tract are
usually first detected infectious agent and its sensitivity to antibiotics, and then assigned to
Augmentin (of course, if it is active against the pathogen infection).
