CALAMOX Susp 156.25mg/5ml is a pharmaceutical suspension medication for treating various bacterial infections. This formulation contains a combination of two active ingredients, Amoxicillin and Clavulanic Acid, which work synergistically to combat bacterial infections more effectively than either drug alone.

Amoxicillin, present at 125mg per 5ml concentration, is a widely used antibiotic from the penicillin class. It functions by interfering with the synthesis of bacterial cell walls, leading to the weakening and eventual destruction of the bacteria. This mechanism of action makes Amoxicillin highly effective against a broad spectrum of bacterial pathogens, including Streptococci, Staphylococci, and Haemophilus influenzae, among others. This makes it an indispensable tool in the fight against various common infections, such as sinusitis, urinary tract infections, and respiratory tract infections.
