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.
