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
