Amoxicillin: Amoxicillin is a penicillin derivative antibiotic. Some bacteria manufacture enzymes called beta-lactamases and the addition of clavulanate to the amox blocks this enzyme from destroying the penicillin. This drug is active against many different bacteria, and often used for upper respiratory tract or urinary tract infections, but may be of value in others. Discuss with the person who prescribed.
