How does Amoxicillin/Potassium Clavulanate (generic Augmentin) Works (Mechanism) ?

Augmentin is an antibiotic that is a combination of Amoxicillin and a substance called Clavulanic acid. Augmentin kills bacteria, by interfering with their ability to form cell walls. The bacteria therefore break up and die.

Clavulanic acid is an antibiotic used for its ability to enhance the effectiveness of other antibiotics, such as the penicillins. Augmentin achieves this by blocking the chemical defenses some bacteria have against some penicillins, known as beta-lactamase.

The combination of Amoxicillin and Clavulanic acid makes Augmentin active against bacterial infections, which have become resistant to Amoxicillin.
