I have asthma. Now I'm taking amoxicillin from 2days. But still its not helping. What should I do?

I am suffering from acute bronchial asthma is it safe to consume 3 tablet of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 625 in a day?

I am suffering from acute bronchial asthma is it safe to consume 3 tablet of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 625 in a day?

Yes: In fact, this is close to the usual dose for your age, however a bacterial infection is an unlikely cause for your acute asthma which may require a short-course of Prednisone if not controlled with bronchodilator and Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is not likely to do any good unless you have a sinus infection at the same time. ...Read more

I am 55, 5 -7 peak flow was 480', I am currently taking Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875 and 10 mg of prednisone since Monday 12/2214. I have had Asthma since 1988.

Symptoms now?: The peak flow does not seem to be very bad, of course it all depends on your usual baseline when asthma is not acting up, also your height (in order to calculate expected). If you are feeling better finish your medication as prescribed. If not better at all follow up with your doctor for reevaluation and determine the need for alternative or more treatment. ...Read more

Advice 4 night-time mucus drainage w/ respiratory infection? Just want to sleep! Waking up choking. Am asthmatic on 10 day prednis./7 day augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate).

Call doc again: If asthma is the issue, I'd expect prednisone (>20 mg/day) would have helped it. If you have a sinus infection, the above combination works most of the time also. Thus one will need to consider pneumonia which does not respond to Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) and you may well need a chest x-ray and a different antibiotic. Contact your doctor now. ...Read more

I am on prednisone & augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for bronchitis & a sinus infection. I have such a congested horrible cough. I'm also an asthmatic. Is there any remedies or OTC meds that would help the congested cough?

I am on prednisone & augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for bronchitis & a sinus infection. I have such a congested horrible cough. I'm also an asthmatic. Is there any remedies or OTC meds that would help the congested cough?

A few ideas: Your medications sound appropriate for your diagnoses. What I did not hear you mention was that you are using your asthma inhalers regularly. This is key, of course, for your lung health.
Also inhalation therapy of steam scented with menthol or herbs can be helpful for both lungs and sinuses. And have an adult try percussion-lightly pounding your chest with a cupped palm to loosen the phlegm. ...Read more

Go to the next level: Your infection may be resistant to the amoxicillin. It's time for antibiotic #2, but it's also time to consider whether the diagnosis is correct. Maybe a chest x-ray is in order to rule out pneumonia. You are on all of the right medications for an asthmatic bronchitis, but just haven't turned the corner. Visit with your fp about what the next move is. ...Read more
