Cipmox CV 625 (500+125) mg is a combination medicine that helps fight body infections caused by bacteria. It combines Amoxycillin and clavulanic acid to treat infections of the lungs (pneumonia), nasal sinus, ear, urinary tract, skin, and soft tissue. The combination medicine will not work for viral infections like the common cold.
Amoxycillin is an antibiotic discovered to treat bacterial infections that mainly target the ear, sinus, throat, skin, joints, teeth, bones, and urinary tract. It has a bactericidal effect by destroying the bacterial cell wall, which is required to multiply bacteria. Another active ingredient, clavulanic acid, is a beta-lactamase inhibitor that reduces resistance and increases the activity of Amoxycillin against bacteria.
Taking Cipmox CV (500+125) mg with a meal is best to reduce the risk of stomach upset. The recommended dose will depend on what you are being treated for, but you should always complete the course of treatment as your doctor prescribes. Do not discontinue treatment until you finish the course, even if you feel better. Stopping the medication early may cause the bacteria to survive, and the infection may return or worsen.
Speak to your doctor before taking the Cipmox CV 625 mg tablet if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. The combination medicine may cause dizziness, so drive with caution. Do not consume alcohol while taking the medicine to prevent unwanted side effects. The combination medicine is contraindicated if you have a history of cholestatic jaundice and liver dysfunction associated with clavulanate and Amoxycillin. It should be used with caution in patients with kidney impairment.
Amoxycillin and potassium clavulanate tablets are safe for children if prescribed by the doctor. The duration and precise dose of the medicine may vary depending on the child’s weight and the severity of the infection. Also, be cautious of using two medications at the same time; taking Cipmox CV with another medicine may affect each other working. Use Cipmox CV with caution in elderly patients, which contributes to developing further medical problems, ultimately worsening the patient’s health. The dose is required in such a population based on a patient’s medical condition.
The most common side effects of Cipmox CV 625 mg tablet include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. They are usually mild, but seek medical help if they become troublesome or will not disappear.
