have supply given by foreign DR (work away) but did not understand his language so not started yet,and have no idea of the dosage. Thankyou.
Sultamicillin is a prodrug of ampicillin and of the beta-lactamase inhibitor sulbactam; it consists of the two compounds linked as a double ester. During absorption from the gastrointestinal tract it is hydrolysed, releasing equimolar quantities of ampicillin and sulbactam.
Sultamicillin is given orally as tablets containing sultamicillin tosilate or as oral suspension containing sultamicillin. It is used in the treatment of infections where beta-lactamase-producing organisms might occur, including uncomplicated gonorrhoea, otitis media, and respiratory-tract and urinary-tract infections. The usual dose is 375 to 750 mg of sultamicillin (equivalent to 147 to 294 mg of sulbactam and 220 to 440 mg of ampicillin) twice daily. A single dose of sultamicillin 2.25 g with probenecid 1 g may be used for uncomplicated gonorrhoea.
However, it would be best that you seek advice of a doc/pharmacist for more accurate info, please take care, my best wishes!
