Mechanism of action:

clamox® is a broad-spectrum antibiotic consisting of a penicillin (amoxicillin) and a beta-lactamase (clavulanic acid) inhibitor.

By binding to the penicillin-binding protein, amoxicillin inhibits the synthesis of bacterial cell wall peptides and glycans, thereby destroying bacteria. Clavulanic acid is a beta-lactamase inhibitor that alone does not have much antibiotic power, but in combination with penicillins it increases their potency.


It is metabolized in the liver and excreted in the urine.
