what will happen if someone takes 875 mgs of amoxicillin and 125 mgs clavulanic acid?

Augmentin 875/125: This is a standard 'fixed dose' of Augmentin - which is quite an effective antibiotic. The clavulanic acid is a separate medicine from the amoxicillin which helps or 'augments' its effect. Unless you have a penicillin allergy or some other intolerance, I would take the antibiotic as prescribed. If you have questions, you can call the doctor who prescribed it in the first place. They're responsible

Yes: however your total 24 hour intake of Tylenol (acetaminophen) should not exceed 4 grams.

No problem: These drugs will not interfere with your fertility or that of your wife.
