Nuromox CV is a combination medicine used to treat a variety of bacterial infections. It contains Amoxycillin which interferes with the growth and division process of the bacterial cell wall. Amoxycillin is an antibiotic which functions by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering, required for bacteria to survive. Nuromox CV is also composed of Clavulanic acid which is a medicine that ensures extended anti-bacterial activity. Clavulanic Acid is a beta-lactamase inhibitor which reduces resistance and enhances the activity of Amoxycillin against bacteria. This potent combination is used to treat bacterial infections of the lungs and airways, middle ear, sinuses, skin and the urinary tract.
Nuromax CV is manufactured from Neuron Pharma, an established name in the manufacture and marketing of segments such as Paediatric Care, Pain Management, Nutritional Supplements, Respiratory Management and Anti-infectives. Neuron Pharma has a multi product portfolio with a wide range of products belonging to different pharmaceutical formulations like Tablet, Capsules, Oral Liquid, Ointments, Cream, Gel etc. The product mix contains various WHO-GMP certified therapeutic categories like Antibiotics, NSAID, Anti Ulcer, Cough Syrups etc. The company has its base in Ahmedabad, Gujarat with a turnover of 3.9 million (USD).
Nuromox CV is prescribed by your doctor as you could be affected by bacterial infections.
Bacterial infections include meningitis, intra-abdominal infections, urinary tract infections, gonorrhea, pelvic inflammatory disease, skin and skin structure infections, acute undifferentiated fever, community-acquired pneumonia, brain abscess and spinal epidural abscess. Bacterial infections may be marked by localized redness, inflammation, pain or swelling. Common symptoms include inflammation, fatigue, vomiting, coughing and sneezing, fever, diarrhoea and cramping
Pathogenic bacteria can gain access into the body through a range of access routes. These include cuts, contaminated food or water, close contact with an infected person, physical contact with the faeces of an infected person, getting infected through another person’s coughing or sneezing or by touching contaminated surfaces like taps, toilet handles, nappies or toys.
A bacteria culture test can help find harmful bacteria in your body. A sample is taken from the patient’s blood, urine, skin or other parts of the body during a bacteria culture test. The cells in the sample are put in a special environment in a lab to encourage cell growth. Depending on the type of bacteria, results are often available within a few days.
Antibiotics are usually prescribed as medicines that fight bacterial infections. When used as per prescription by the doctor, antibiotics can save lives. They either kill bacteria or keep them from reproducing. Your body’s natural defence can usually take it forward from there on. When antibiotics are prescribed it is important to complete the course of the medicine even if you feel better. If you stop treatment too soon, some bacteria may survive and re-infect you.
Patient w/ mononucleosis. Renal and hepatic impairment. Children. Pregnancy and lactation.
Monitoring Parameters- Periodically monitor renal, hepatic and haematologic function. Monitor for signs of anaphylaxis during 1st dose.
Hypersensitivity to penicillins. History of severe immediate hypersensitivity reaction to another β-lactam agent (e.g. cephalosporins, carbapenem or monobactam), history of cholestatic jaundice/hepatic dysfunction associated w/ amoxicillin and clavulanic acid therapy.
May increase plasma concentration of amoxicillin w/ probenecid. May increase allergic or hypersensitivity reaction w/ concomitant use of allopurinol and amoxicillin. May reduce efficacy of oral oestrogen/progesterone contraceptives.
Symptoms: GI symptoms, fluid and electrolyte imbalances; crystalluria and interstitial nephritis may lead to renal failure.
Management: Treat symptomatically w/ attention to water/electrolyte balance. May be removed by haemodialysis.
Mechanism of Action
Clavulanic acid has a high affinity for and binds to certain β-lactamases that generally inactivate amoxicillin by hydrolysing its β-lactam ring. Combining clavulanate K w/ amoxicillin extends the antibacterial spectrum of amoxicillin to include many bacteria normally resistant to amoxicillin and other penicillins and cephalosporins.
