Indications and Usage for Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Tablets

Amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium tablet is a combination of amoxicillin, a penicillin-class antibacterial and clavulanate potassium, a beta-lactamase inhibitor indicated for treatment of the following infections in adults and pediatric patients:

  • Lower respiratory tract infections
  • Acute bacterial otitis media
  • Sinusitis
  • Skin and skin structure infections
  • Urinary tract infections

Limitations of Use

When susceptibility test results show susceptibility to amoxicillin, indicating no beta-lactamase production, amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium should not be used.


To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium and other antibacterial drugs, amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria.
