Flemokisin Solutab belongs to the group of semi-synthetic penicillins, the main active ingredient is Amoxicillin trihydrate. In chemical composition and spectrum of influence on pathogens has similarity with Ampicillin.
Effective Flemoxin for angina, otitis, sinus, and other acute and chronic pathology of the respiratory tract.
Advantage over other drugs
Unlike other drugs in this group, the drug has several advantages. Flemoksin is completely dissolved in water, and also in an oral cavity.
The tablets are pleasant to the taste, with a fruity smell, they can be chewed before use, dissolve or simply dilute in a drink. Dispersible form of the antibiotic is widely used in pediatrics, and is also convenient for adult patients who have difficulty in swallowing.
When medications are taken orally (by mouth), part of the drug is inactivated by gastric juice, liver enzymes, and some amount is not absorbed at all. Therefore, it is quite difficult to control the dose of the drug that entered the blood. Flemoxin is resistant to gastric juice, very quickly (10 – 15 min) and almost completely (90%) absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract.
The maximum concentration in the blood is observed after 2 hours after taking the pill. The presence of food in the stomach also does not affect the absorption of the drug, therefore, it can be used both before and after meals.
In addition, many drugs irritate the mucous membrane of the digestive tract, cause discomfort, burning and other discomfort. The unique formula of Flemoxin does not have such an unpleasant side effect and a negative effect on the gastrointestinal tract.
Compared with many oral antibiotics, it rarely causes dysbacteriosis, but disruption of the normal intestinal flora is possible.
Forms and doses of release
Since Flemoxin is highly soluble in water, it is available in a sealed blister pack. After opening the cell, the pill must be consumed immediately.
If it is unpacked and left for some time, then under the influence of humidity it will become unusable.
Doses for children – 125 and 250 mg, for adults – 500 and 1000 mg
From which pathogens protects, and from which he dies
Flemoxin’s spectrum of activity is quite wide, it affects many gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria:
- some types of streptococcus (including β-hemolytic)
- staphylococcus (including golden)
- bacterium that causes peptic ulcer
- to a lesser extent: enterococcus, Escherichia coli, Proteus, Salmonella.
Recently, some “smart” bacteria have begun to recognize antibiotics and have learned to produce the substance β-lactamase that is detrimental to the drug. If this enzyme is present in the area of exposure to the penicillin-type drug, then the latter becomes completely harmless to the pathogen.
The pharmaceutical industry has protected a number of antibacterial agents from destruction by adding clavulonic acid (Flemoklav) to their composition. Flemoxin does not belong to protected antibiotics, therefore not in all cases its use is advisable.
Make the right decision in the treatment of pathology can only a doctor.
When to use
Flemoxine Solutab is prescribed in case of mild and moderate severity of uncomplicated disease course. The drug is effective only in case of bacterial infection and is completely useless, even harmful in other processes.
Based on the spectrum of effects on specific types of pathogens, it is often used in the pathology of the upper respiratory tract.
It is advisable to apply Flemoksin Solyutab with angina. The drug copes well with β-hemolytic streptococcus, so it is often prescribed for acute tonsillitis.
If the process is not complicated by peritonsillary abscess, nephritis, sepsis, then the effect of treatment is noted already on the 2nd – 3rd day of taking the drug. The sore throat decreases, the temperature falls, the general condition improves.
It is impossible immediately after the start of therapy, even in the presence of a clear positive dynamic of the disease, to cancel antibiotics. For 2 – 3 days, the pathogenic flora cannot be destroyed, with the help of drugs during this time only its activity is inhibited, therefore the clinical picture improves.
If you stop the treatment, the pathogens are activated again, which can lead to a number of complications or the emergence of resistance (resistance) of the microorganism to the antibiotic. For complete cure of purulent tonsillitis, 7 to 10 days are needed.
If a child has an inflammatory process of the upper respiratory tract, the presence of cough, which is almost always present in laryngitis, tracheitis and pharyngitis, then Flemoxin Solyutab will not always be relevant in the treatment of such pathology. Often inflammation of the larynx, throat caused by a viral process, then the antibiotic is not prescribed.
The doctor will prescribe antiviral and anti-inflammatory therapy.
In case of inflammation of the maxillary, frontal, ethmoidal and sphenoid sinus, otolaryngologists prescribe Amoxicillin. Flemoxin is effective for sinusitis caused by bacterial flora, and for sinusitis, frontal or runny nose of viral, fungal etiology, or if its cause is an allergic factor, the treatment will not bring the desired result.
After using the drug, the temperature drops, headaches subside, a feeling of pressure in the sinuses, purulent nasal discharge decreases.
In the initial stages of the development of acute inflammation of the middle ear in children, the drug is the preferred antibiotic. With otitis, which has reached a purulent form, when the pre-perforative or perforative stage is diagnosed, it is more expedient to carry out treatment with protected forms of Amoxicillin.
The instruction indicates the effectiveness of the use of Flemoxin Solutab in the following pathology:
- inflammatory processes of the upper respiratory tract
- bacterial bronchitis
- skin infections
- urinary tract inflammation
- salmonellosis, typhoid
- Lyme disease
Flemoxin Solutab is one of the safest antibacterial semi-synthetic penicillins. It has few side effects and rarely allergic reactions.
If the patient has certain diseases, the remedy is not prescribed:
- individual sensitivity to the components of the drug
- Infectious mononucleosis
- lymphocytic leukemia
- renal failure.
With caution and only under the supervision of a physician to take during pregnancy, lactation, gastrointestinal pathology.
Reviews after the use of the drug are positive:
Flemoxin Solutab is an effective antibacterial agent in inflammatory processes of the respiratory tract and other organs. It is convenient to use, often used in pediatric practice. Side effects, adverse events, including allergic reactions, are rare.
But, like other antibiotics, the prescription of the drug is carried out only by a doctor, the treatment is carried out only under his control.
