Product Molecule
Levasol tablets
Levamisole
Indications
Respiratory tract Infections caused by susceptible strains of pneumoniae, S. aureus (penicillinase and nonpenicillinase-producing), H. influenzae, and Group A beta-hemolytic Streptococci. Bacterial Meningitis caused by E. coli, Group B Streptococci, and other Gram negative bacteria (Listeria monocytogenes, N. meningitidis). The addition of an aminoglycoside with Ampicillin may increase its effectiveness against Gram negative bacteria. Septicemia and Endocarditis caused by susceptible Gram positive organisms including Streptococcus sp., penicillin G-susceptible staphylococci, and enterococci. Gram negative sepsis caused by E. coli, Proteus mirabilis and Salmonella sp. respond to Ampicillin. Endocarditis due to enterococcal strains usually respond to intravenous therapy. The addition of an aminoglycoside may enhance the effectiveness of Ampicillin when treating streptoccoccal endocarditis. Urinary Tract Infections caused by sensitive strains of E. coli and Proteus mirabilis. Gastrointestinal Infections caused b
Pharmacological Class
Antibiotic: Semi-synthetic penicillin.
Pharmacological Properties
Antibiotic
Mechanism Of Action
Broad-spectrum penicillin. Interferes with bacterial cell wall synthesis during active replication, causing bactericidal activity against susceptible organisms. Alternative to amoxicillin when unable to take medication orally.
Side Effects
GI upset, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, blood dyscrasias, urticaria, exfoliative dermatitis, rash, fever, seizures, interstitial nephritis. Potentially Fatal: Anaphylactic shock, pseudomembranous colitis, neuromuscular hypersensitivity, electrolyte imbalance.
Contraindications
Known hypersensitivity to penicillins.
Observations
Should be taken on an empty stomach. (Take on an empty stomach 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals). Probenecid delays elimination. Reduced absorption with food. Potentially Fatal: Increases disulfiram and anticoagulant effects.
