Ampiclox for adult?
Depends on the infection.
Here are the basic rules for prescribing.
The use of this antibiotic may lead to the appearance of resistant strains of organisms and sensitivity resting should, therefore, be carried out wherever possible, to ensure the appropriateness of the therapy.
Infections caused by susceptible organisms where a mixed infection is present and includes penicillin-resistant staphylococci.
Known allergy to penicillin or cephalosporins. Cases of cross sensitivity have been reported.
Babies born of hypersensitive mothers in the neonatal period.
The oral dosage forms are not recommended for chronic, severe, or deep-seated infections such as subacute bacterial endocarditis, meningitis or syphilis. AMPICLOX should not be administered by sub-conjunctival injection or used as an eye drop as it contains cloxacillin.
When administered to a patient with penicillin allergy anaphylactic shock may occur. Adrenaline, corticosteroids and antihistamines should be used to treat anaphylaxis. Use with caution in patients with a known history of allergy.
Because of the variability in intestinal absorption of cloxacillin containing products, oral administration is not a suitable substitute for the parenteral route in treatment of severe infections.
DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
The average adult dose for AMPICLOX is 2 –4g per day. In severe infections, dosages may be safely increased.
2 - 4 g per day is 4 - 8 (500mg) capsules.
Hope that helps.
