1x12 sachet pack, in box, of Amoxil powder (amoxycillin trihydrate), by Bencard, expires 1987
Amoxil is a brand name for the antibiotic amoxicillin, a semi-synthetic penicillin. Amoxicillin was discovered by Beecham Research Laboratories Ltd (now part of GlaxoSmithKline) in 1972. Unlike the first naturally occurring penicillins to be discovered, this affects a wide variety of bacteria and can survive the rigours of human digestion, so it can be taken by mouth.
Amoxicillin is used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections, especially those of the chest, ear and bladder, and can be used in the treatment of the sexually transmitted infection gonorrhoea. It can also be taken orally with food. This carton is from a syrup version, especially designed for children and those who may not be able to swallow tablets easily. It is still on the market today.
