Antibiotics - this word causes sacred horror among many in our time) In antiquity, when there was no Internet, only doctors and people close to them understood the specifics of drugs. Now, all the specialists) Personally, I’m not afraid of antibiotics, if it is necessary to kill the infection inside myself - why not? If the symptoms are on the face, and the doctor prescribes the drug to ease your condition - why not? A couple of times I ran into the terrible consequences of a belated antibacterial treatment - 3 weeks of infernal bronchitis as a complication, for example. And no, I didn’t refuse a / b then, I just turned to the doctor later than expected. And that story forever instilled in me respect for antibiotics and the need for timely treatment.
Amoxiclav is familiar to me for a very long time. It’s hard for a tonsilitis chronicler to not know about him) Just not so long ago, I transferred a virus that turned into a purulent tonsillitis (I did not manage to take Ergoferon in time ), and after a couple of months - another exacerbation of tonsillitis, then underwent a dental implantation operation. Therefore, for 3 months now I have not parted with Amoxiclav in a variety of dosages)
Tablets with a content of 875 mg of amoxicillin are the strongest and most effective. Moreover, they act both on bacteria and on everything else - the stomach and other body systems. This dosage is prescribed infrequently.
Amoxiclav price 875 + 125 mg 14 tablets - 410.50 rubles.
500 mg of amoxicillin is also quite a lot, but Amoxiclav in this dosage is often prescribed. If the course of the disease is very mild, then they can offer 250 mg.
The price of Amoxiclav 500 + 125 mg 15 tablets - 395 rubles.

The tablets are also quite voluminous - oval, puffy - especially, 875 mg. Have engraving and risk for division.
It was not a problem for me to swallow such a pill, but for many their administration can cause difficulties, in which case it will be logical to divide the pill:
In this case, it will be possible to catch the bitterness of the drug, with the usual reception, it is not felt at all.
amoxicillin (in the form of a trihydrate) 250, 500 or 875 mg
clavulanic acid (in the form of potassium clavulanate) 125 mg
colloidal silicon dioxide, crospovidone, croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate, talc, microcrystalline cellulose.
Note that the amount of cavulanic acid remains unchanged. Also, do not take Amlksiklav 500 + 125 instead of 250 + 125 in the hope of just dividing the tablets, because then you will also get 2 times less cavalanic acid. KK is an inhibitor and, more simply, enhances the action of the antibiotic itself, plus makes it active against those bacteria that have become resistant to it.
It is active against strains sensitive to amoxicillin, including strains producing β-lactamases, incl. aerobic gram-positive bacteria: Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus viridans, Streptococcus bovis, Enterococcus spp., Staphylococcus aureus (except for methicillin-resistant strains), Staphylococcus sperm epidermidis; Gram-negative aerobic bacteria: Bordetella pertussis, Brucella spp., Campylobacter jejuni, Escherichia coli, Gardnerella vaginalis, Haemophilus ducreyi, Haemophilus influenzae, Helicobacter pylori, Klebsiella spp., Mohrellissa neissa, Meissella pheori, Neissa meleisoridaeriisseris, Klebsiella spp. spp., Shigella spp., Vibrio cholerae, Yersinia enterocolitica, Eikenella corrodens; gram-positive anaerobes : Peptococcus spp., Peptostreptococcus spp., Clostridium spp., Actinomyces israelii, Fusobacterium spp., Prevotella spp., gram-negative anaerobes: Bacteroides spp.
Staphylococcus saprofitus was sown with cystitis, and streptococci with acute tonsillitis. By the way, as far as I remember, Amoxiclav for cystitis was prescribed to me only once, usually Monural was prescribed plus other drugs for complex treatment.

That's just the same for the treatment of bronchitis, tonsillitis and pharyngitis, as well as in the postoperative periods, Amoxiclav was prescribed to me.

With caution, the drug is prescribed for patients with a history of pseudomembranous colitis, with liver failure, severe renal impairment, as well as during lactation.
Also, it is not recommended to use it for HV, since Amoxiclav passes into milk, and here, depending on the severity of the condition, the doctor will decide on the appointment in each specific case.

Typically, with angina, I was prescribed to drink Amoxiclav 500 mg 2-3 times a day for 7 days, the only exception was bronchitis - I sat on an antibiotic for 2 weeks - in the first one I drank 875 mg one at a time, in the second - 500 mg 2 times a day . After dental implantation for the prevention of drinking the drug for 3 days on a tablet of 500 mg 2 times a day.

Side effects in most cases are mild and transient.
Personally, I didn’t have any side effects , given that I didn’t even take drugs in parallel to maintain the microflora of the stomach (such as Linex, Acipol and others), and I also rarely drank thrush. Only from 875 mg did I feel that something was wrong with the stomach, there were clearly no pains or upsets, but something so subtle was felt. Well, maybe a little bitterness in my mouth was felt. But my stomach can digest the crocodile’s stomach, so my case is not indicative. As far as I remember, many relatives began to have problems with the digestive tract or thrush, and this is not a bad one.
Amoxiclav has never failed me with angina. With timely admission, already on the 3rd day, a noticeable improvement was felt - the throat practically stopped hurting, the weakness disappeared, the temperature stopped scaling, and I returned to life again. By the end of the week I was always invigorating and the ballist was calmly closing for me.
In acute complicated bronchitis, of course, amoxiclav did not act so quickly, but still, the effect was already visible after a week.
After implantation, I also had no problems - neither inflammation, nor pus in the gums arose, healing went smoothly.
For me personally, Amoxiclav is just a salvation for tonsillitis and other diseases, it is especially pleasing that it never caused a side effect and did not cause damage to my health. A quick and effective treatment is what you need!
But from Azithromycin, my stomach simply burst!
