No Additional Information
Uclox contains Cloxacillin which is an isoxazolyl penicillin and is stable to penicillinase. It is active against penicillinase-producing staphylococci and, in general, is less effective against organisms susceptible to penicillin G e.g. streptococci and pneumococci, and is not useful against gram negative organisms.
It is indicated for the treatment of infections caused by penicillinase producing staphylococci that are resistant to Benzyl-penicillin, such as in:
abscesses (skin and soft tissue); cellulitis; bacteraemia (septicaemia);
endocarditis; pneumonia (respiratory tract); osteomyelitis (bone and joints).
Direction to Use
The injectable form of this medicine will be administered by your doctor/nurse. The dose depends on the weight and the type of infection. The dose of uclox is injected into the vein or muscle every 6 hours as required.
