Pharmacology of Moxilin 500mg Capsule

Moxilin 500mg Capsule is penicillin with a broad spectrum of activity. It works against a variety of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. It works by preventing the production of cell walls. In the presence of stomach acid, amoxicillin is stable and is readily absorbed after oral administration. Amoxicillin reaches its maximal plasma concentration approximately 1 to 2 hours after oral dosage. Amoxicillin is extensively disseminated in bodily tissues and fluids at different concentrations.

Pregnancy & Lactation

Amoxicillin is classified as a pregnancy category B by the US Food and Drug Administration. However, no appropriate and well-controlled trials in pregnant women have been conducted. Because animal reproduction studies do not always anticipate human response, this medication should only be taken during pregnancy if absolutely necessary. Human milk has been found to contain amoxicillin. When administering Amoxicillin to a breastfeeding mother, care should be used.
