Pharmacodynamic properties
Amoxycillin is a broad-spectrum semi-synthetic penicillin. Amoxycillin predominately inhibits cell wall synthesis in susceptible bacteria. Amoxycillin has a mode of action which directly and irreversibly disrupts cell wall peptidoglycan. Amoxicillin is absorbed well after oral administration, giving high plasma and tissue levels. Excretion takes place in both bile and urine.
