Safe for what?: Why are taking antibiotics for a month? Augment is known to be pretty harsh on your stomach. It has a reputation for causing diarrhea more frequently than other antibiotics. http://www.drugs.com/augmentin.html notes some concerns about taking this medication if you have liver disease so you might want to clarify this w/your prescribing doc.
