• Efficacy of amoxicillin is dependent on the amount of time the drug concentration exceeds the minimum inhibitory concentration of the target pathogen3
• Timed releases of amoxicillin from MOXATAG ensure adequate drug levels to treat S.pyogenes with just 1 daily dose for 10 days1
• The tablet disintegrates rapidly in the stomach, releasing 3 components: an immediate-release granule that dissolves rapidly (pulse 1) and 2 delayed-release components that release amoxicillin in different regions of the intestinal tract (pulses 2 and 3)4
