What is Flucloxacillin?

Flucloxacillin is a type of narrow spectrum penicillin antibiotic available in capsule, oral liquid and injectable form, and is used to treat a range of common bacterial infections. We do not prescribe the injectable form online.

Flucloxacillin is also available under brand names, including Floxapen.

How does Flucloxacillin work?

Flucloxacillin works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Specifically, Flucloxacillin acts by blocking bacteria from forming cell walls. Without a cell wall, the bacteria cannot function and replicate so the colony will eventually die.

How is Flucloxacillin used to treat bacterial infections?

Flucloxacillin is used to treat bacterial infections in the upper and lower respiratory tract infections, such as bronchitis, tonsillitis and pneumonia; urinary tract infections such as cystitis and urethritis; skin and soft tissue infections such as boils and abscesses; and infected wounds and burns. We tend to prescribe the medication mainly for skin infections but we will consider other uses.

Oral Flucloxacillin works best when taken with water on an empty stomach, usually an hour before food or 2 hours after food. A standard course of treatment with Flucloxacillin involves taking it four times a day until you finish your medicine: usually 5 to 10 days.

Are there any side effects of Flucloxacillin?

The most common side effects are diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, rash or hives. Less frequent side effects include allergic reactions (particularly of the skin) and fever. Very few people get side effects but you should notify us if we have prescribed for you and you have an adverse reaction.

Can anyone use Flucloxacillin?

Flucloxacillin is not appropriate for everyone. Please make a full disclosure on our consultation form and we will ensure that we prescribe an appropriate treatment for you.

    Very effective treatment prescription. Delighted, as I have no registered Doctor where I am staying on lockdown, to be able to be in contact with clearly professional Doctor(s) via message exchanges. Very happy with the entire process.

    Clears up cellulitis very quickly with no side effects at all but I will admit I forgot that 2 x 500mg every 6 hours works better for me as it was what I was prescribed last time (this was 5 years ago so needed a memory jog!) I had it so it hasn't quite cleared up yet. I had my last one sunday and I still have some redness soreness and weeping blisters though far as I can tell it's still clearing up just not as quickly. Will see how it goes, then may make an appointment with my gp. Thanks :)
