05th December 2017 (Circular NO. SP PPUM:  445/2017):
 
Owing to complications in manufacturing at Karnataka Antibiotics & Pharmaceuticals Limited, India, the current supplier is unable provide any stocks of Amoxicillin 1000mg Clavulanate 200mg Combo (co-amoxiclav a.k.a Augmentin) Injection until after mid December 2017.

As the alternative, doctors are advised to prescribe either

OR
  • Cefuroxime Injection
We deeply apologize for any inconveniences caused.
