The Power of Amoxicillin: How This Antibiotic Fights Infections and Saves Lives

by | May 18, 2023 | Medicine

What is Amoxicillin?

Amoxicillin is an oral antibiotic taken to treat infections caused by bacteria. The antibiotic belongs to a group of medicines called “penicillins”, which kill the bacteria causing the infection.

The antibiotic works fast by interfering with the bacteria’s ability to form cell walls and by penetrating and reaching the site of infection, ultimately destroying the bacteria. Amoxicillin is highly effective against gram-positive bacteria such as streptococcus and staphylococcus.

Can you become resistant to antibiotics?

Overuse and misuse of antibiotics can lead to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which is harder to treat.

This is because our bodies, like any other living organisms, evolve and adapt to changing environments meaning that bacteria can become resistant to antibiotics if exposed enough.
