|Drug Class: What is Trimox and why is it prescribed?|
Generic Trimox (amoxicillin) is a penicillin-like antibiotic. Generic Trimox is used to treat a wide variety of infections, including: gonorrhea, middle ear infections, skin infections, upper and lower respiratory tract infections, and infections of the genital and urinary tract.
Generic Trimox is also used before some surgery or dental work to prevent infection. Generic Trimox will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections.
Generic Trimox also is used occasionally to treat a chlamydia infection during pregnancy.
In combination with other drugs such as Prevacid and Biaxin, Generic Trimox is also used to treat duodenal ulcers caused by H. pylori bacteria (ulcers in the wall of the small intestine near the exit from the stomach).
|Drug Mechanism: How does Trimox work?|
Generic Trimox works by interfering with the ability of bacteria to form cell walls. The cell walls of bacteria are vital for their survival. They keep unwanted substances from entering their cells and stop the contents of their cells from leaking out. Generic Trimox impairs the bonds that hold the bacterial cell wall together. This allows holes to appear in the cell walls and kills the bacteria.
Generic Trimox is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that kills a wide variety of bacteria that cause a wide variety of commonly-occuring infections.
Generic Trimox may be used to treat infections of the upper or lower airways, skin or soft tissue, or ears.
Generic Trimox may also be used to treat urine infections, certain sexually-transmitted infections, dental infections, and infections affecting the blood or internal organs.
To make sure the bacteria causing an infection are susceptible to Generic Trimox your doctor may take a tissue sample, for example a swab from the throat or skin, or a urine or blood sample.

|Possible food and drug interactions when taking Trimox|
There may be an increased risk of experiencing a rash as a side effect of Generic Trimox if you are also taking allopurinol.
Generic Trimox may decrease the removal of methotrexate from the body, increasing the risk of side effects. If you are taking methotrexate you should be well monitored by your doctor while you are taking a course of Generic Trimox.
Probenecid increases the blood level of Generic Trimox, and people taking probenecids may be prescribed a lower dose of Generic Trimox.
Generic Trimox may rarely alter the anti-blood-clotting effects of anticoagulant medicines such as warfarin. Your doctor may wish to monitor your blood clotting time while you are taking both medicines.
If you are taking a combined oral contraceptive pill there may be a very low risk that Generic Trimox may make it less effective at preventing pregnancy. Although the risk of this is very low, the personal and ethical consequences of an unwanted pregnancy can be very serious. For this reason the Family Planning Association recommends that women taking combined oral contraceptives should use an extra method of contraception (eg condoms) while taking a short course of Generic Trimox, and for seven days after finishing the course. If the seven days run beyond the end of a pill packet, a new packet should be started without a break (in the case of ED pills the inactive tablets should be omitted).
