Properties:
Flucamox is a combination of two broad spectrum semi synthetic penicillin: Amoxycillin & Flucloxacillin.
Amoxycillin:

Flucloxacillin (isoxazolyl penicillin ):
Is resistant to penicillinase enzyme and thus it acts on penicillinase producing micro-organisms including most Staphylococci.
Flucamox is well absorbed from the G.I.T with high peak blood levels that last for more than 8 hours.
