INJECTABLE SUSPENSION

 

           

Composition:

Each ml suspension contains:

150 mg amoxycillin base (as trihydrate)

 

Spectrum of activity:

Amoxycillin is a broad spectrum, semi-synthetic penicillin with activity against both Grampositive and Gramnegative bacteria. Sensitive are streptococci, E. coli, Pasteurella spp., Proteus spp., Salmonella spp., Corynebacterium spp., staphylococci (b-lactamase negative), Clostridium spp.

The drug is destroyed by e.g. penicillinase-producing staphylocci. Some Gramnegative strains are resistant against amoxycillin (R-plasmid). After intramuscular injection amoxycillin is quickly resorbed without irritation at the injection site.

 

Indications:

Infections of the alimentary tract, respiratory tract, urogenital tract, coli-mastitis and secondary bacterial infections during the course of viral diseases, in horses, cattle, pigs, sheep, dogs and cats.

 

Contra-indications:

New-borns, small herbivores (such as guinea pigs, rabbits), hypersensitivity to penicillins, renal dysfunctions, infections caused by penicillinase-producing bacteria.

Amoxycillin is incompatible with fast-acting bacteriostatic antimicrobial drugs (e.g. tetracyclines, chloramphenicol, sulfonamides).

 

Side-effects:

Hypersensitivity reactions may occur, e.g. anaphylactic shock.

 

Dosage and administration:

The general dose is 15 mg/kg bodyweight i.m. (this is achieved by injection of 1 ml per10 kgb.w.), daily during 3 consecutive days.

In severe cases this dose may be given twice daily, (as there are no problems of toxicity).
