Amoxicillin is a class of medications called penicillin-like antibiotics. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Penicillins contain a beta-lactam ring which is destroyed by bacteria, making penicillins inactive. Clavulanic acid is a class of medications called beta-lactamase inhibitors. It works by preventing bacteria from destroying amoxicillin.
