Amoxicillin and its Partner Drugs

Amoxicillin, as you may know, is one of the most popular antibiotics on the market today. It is a penicillin-type antibiotic that inhibits the synthesis of bacterial cell walls, ensuring the curing of all susceptible bacteria when treatment is sustained for over one bacterial generation. And, of course, you can buy amoxicillin online without a prescription easily enough to treat most non-acute bacterial infections.

However, amoxicillin isn’t always alone. It loves company – particularly the company of drugs that complement or augment its efficacy. To this end, there are dozens of amoxicillin-partnered combination drugs out there, some with a broader range of action, some with a heightened range of action on a narrowed spectrum, or some that are just better delivered, absorbed and tolerated than regular, naked amoxicillin. Here now, for your perusing pleasure, are some of the amoxicillin combinations you can buy online without a prescription:

Amyclox (amoxicillin + dicloxacillin) combines amoxicillin and dicloxacillin, both antibiotics, in one potent package. Dicloxacillin is a narrow spectrum antibiotic – in fact, as far as its general usage goes, it is used against only one bacterium: Staphylococcus aureus. Since this is one of the most commonly suffered bacteria, and also one of the most antibiotic-resistant, the extra potency added by dicloxacillin helps Amyclox treat infections that most antibiotics, including amoxicillin alone, couldn’t handle.

Bromolin (amoxicillin + bromhexine) combines amoxicillin and bromhexine, a mucolytic. Mucolytics help with the dissolution of thick mucous. In respiratory tract infections where the airways and lungs may be stuffed up, filled, or even nearly blocked with mucous, a mucolytic like bromhexine can make all the difference – both for easing discomfort, and for preventing asphyxiation.

Novamox (amoxicillin + lactobacillus) combines amoxicillin and lactobacillus, a probiotic. So, that’s an antibiotic combined with a probiotic. In theory, they should just cancel each other out, but in actuality, that isn’t the case. Lactobacillus is a probiotic commonly found in yogurt, kim chi, and other slightly fermented and/or dairy products. It promotes the growth of gut flora that can help with digestion and absorption of nutrients – flora that antibiotics like amoxicillin usually strip away. Since lactobacillus’ action is specific to gut flora, and not pathogenic bacteria, it can help prevent the usual consequences of amoxicillin therapy, such as diarrhea and yeast infections.

So now that you’ve got the knowledge, consider these amoxicillin combinations next time you go to buy amoxicillin online without a prescription. If you have a specific problem, odds are there’s an amoxicillin combo just for you.
