Continue antibiotic: The antibiotic needs some time to work. The fever is gone and the cough may indicate that the mucus is now more fluid and able to be removed by the lung. I would suggest continuing the Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) as prescribed, and checking with your doctor. The cough should not be associated with any color changes of the skin or lips, fast or labored respirations, vomiting or pain. Prmgpediatrics fax 8582599689 ?S.
