2.         QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE COMPOSITION

 

500mg amoxicillin per vial.

The amoxicillin is present as the sodium salt in ‘Amoxil’ injection.

 

            For a full list of excipients, see section 6 .1.

 

4.4              Special warnings and special precautions for use

 

Before initiating therapy with amoxicillin, careful enquiry should be made concerning previous hypersensitivity reactions to penicillins, cephalosporins. Cross-sensitivity between penicillins and cephalosporins is well documented.
...........................................................................................................................................................................
The sodium content must be taken into account in patients on a sodium restricted diet if the parenteral administration of high doses is necessary. Each 250mg 500mg vial of amoxicillin contains 19mg 38mg of sodium.
 

6.2       Incompatibilities

 

‘Amoxil’ should not be mixed with blood products, other proteinaceous fluids such as protein hydrolysates, or with intravenous lipid emulsions.

 

If ‘Amoxil’ is prescribed concurrently with an aminoglycoside, the antibiotics should not be mixed in the syringe, intravenous fluid container or giving set because loss of activity of the aminoglycoside can occur under these conditions.

 

This medicinal product must not be mixed with other medicinal products except those mentioned in section 6.3 and 6.6.

 

6.3              Shelf life

 

Unopened: 18 months (reconstitution: see below)  2 Years

 

Reconstituted:

When prepared for intramuscular or direct intravenous injection, ‘Amoxil’ should be administered immediately after reconstitution. Infusions should be administered over a period of one-half to one hour although ‘Amoxil’ maintains a satisfactory degree of activity at room temperature in various infusion fluids as follows:

 

Intravenous Fluids                                                                     Stability Time

 

Sodium Chloride Injection (Normal saline)                                   6 hours

Compound Sodium Chloride Injection (Ringer`s solution)  6 hours

Sodium Lactate Injection                                                            3 hours

Compound Sodium Lactate Injection (Hartmann`s solution)          3 hours

Dextrose Injection (5%)                                                             1 hour

Sodium Chloride and (4%) Dextrose Injection                             1 hour

 

Amoxicillin is less stable in infusions containing carbohydrate. Reconstituted solutions of amoxicillin may be injected into the drip tubing over a period of one-half to one hour.

 

Any residual antibiotic solution should be discarded.

Amoxicillin vials are not suitable for multi-dose use.

 

6.4              Special precautions for storage

 

Do not store above 250C.

 

For reconstituted product, see section 6.3.

 

6.6       Special precautions for disposal of a used medicinal product or waste materials derived from such medicinal product and other handling of the product  Instructions for use/handling

 

Preparation of Injections

 

500mg Vial             For IM use, add 2.5ml Water for Injections BP and shake vigorously.

For IV use, dissolve contents in 10 ml Water for Injections BP.

4.5 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

Probenecid decreases the renal tubular excretion of amoxicillin. Concurrent use with amoxicillin may result in increased and prolonged blood levels of amoxicillin.

Concurrent administration of allopurinol during treatment with amoxicillin can increase the likelihood of allergic skin reactions.

In common with other antibiotics, amoxicillin may affect the gut flora, leading to lower oestrogen reabsorption and reduced efficacy of combined oral contraceptives

4.8: Undesirable effects

Infections and Infestations

Very rare:Mucocutaneous candidiasis

Gastrointestinal disorders

#Common: Diarrhoea and nausea.

#Uncommon: Vomiting.

Very rare:Antibiotic associated colitis (including pseudomembraneous colitis and haemorrhagic colitis). [44, 45]
