Two strong antibioti: Tamiflu is prescribed for influenza, so that must be the diagnosis.On the other hand Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is used for bacterial infection, both can cause vomiting.You can give the antibiotics again but if vomiting persists talk to your pediatrician
you need to know what the baby is being treated for.

Call the doctor: Check with your pediatrician, he or she can give you the best guidance.

Talk with your doc: There may be an alternative to Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) which is gentler on the stomach. Hope your little one is feeling better soon.
