Curam Duo (Amoxicillin/Clavulanic acid)
What is Curam Duo (Amoxicillin/Clavulanic acid) used for?
Curam Duo (Amoxicillin/Clavulanic Acid) is an oral antibiotic prescribed to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. These include conditions such as chest infections, respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, ear infections, or Gonorrhea. The medication operates by disrupting bacteria cell walls and preventing their reproduction to stop the spread of infection allowing the immune system to destroy it naturally. It may be prescribed to be used along with other medication or to treat other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Curam Duo (Amoxicillin/Clavulanic acid)?
Strictly follow your physician's directions for using Curam Duo (Amoxicillin/Clavulanic Acid) to ensure the safest and most effective results. It is commonly prescribed to be taken twice each day at the indicated dosage for a cycle lasting one or two weeks. Your particular dosage and frequency of administration will be determined according to your current health condition, symptoms, and response to previous treatments. Never self medicate or deviate from these instructions as misuse can cause serious health problems.
When dosing, swallow the tablets whole and unaltered, and wash them down with a large glass of water. These can be taken on an empty stomach, but a snack or meal should be eaten prior to use to prevent an upset stomach from occurring. Do not change the form of the tablets by splitting, chewing, crushing, or dissolving the contents in water as this can destroy them or alter their effects. Never stop taking the medication before instructed to do so, even if your symptoms seem to have disappeared, as the infection may not be gone and can relapse stronger or more resistant to treatment. It is also recommended to take the doses at the same times each day to get the most effective results by keeping a consistent level of medicine in the system at all times.
Your physician may instruct you to attend regular consultations while undergoing treatment to make sure you are getting the most effective results. After observing your progress and response to the medication, you may be directed to change your dosage or frequency of application until the best effects occur. If you have any questions about the medicine, ask your pharmacist or physician to ensure the correct application.
