Please describe the medication: amoxicillin and clavulanate?

This antimicrobial . Is a fixed combination of the pencillin class medication Amoxicillin with a compound that inhibits bacterial betalactamase expanding the activity of the amoxicillin.
Resistance is futile. Amoxicillin and clavulanate (augmentin) work together to kill resistant bacteria. Some bacteria can make an enzyme (beta-lactamase) that can render Amoxicillin useless. Clavulanate can destroy this enzyme. When these two drugs are combined together, resistance is futile. P.S. Clavulanate can cause diarrhea.
