1What is Acuclav?
Acuclav is a combination medicine used to treat different types of bacterial infections. It is a penicillin type antibiotic which contains “amoxicillin and clavulanic acid” as its active ingredients and is available in tablet form for oral administration. This combination results in a very potent antibacterial drug which has an increased range of action that is also active against bacteria which are resistant to amoxicillin. Acuclav is ineffective in treating viral infections like common cold, flu etc and thus should be abstained in treating viral infections. It should always be administered under medical supervision as overuse or unnecessary usage of Acuclav tablets may cause antibiotic resistance or decreased effectiveness of antibiotic.
