Will Amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium 875 mg / 125 mg work for an abscessed wisdom tooth?

Will  Amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium 875 mg / 125 mg work for an abscessed wisdom tooth?

Antibiotics: Antibiotics will control an infection, but do not remove the cause of the infection (your wisdom tooth). In the end, you'll still need to see a dentist, probably for an extraction. Why wait? You're only prolonging your suffering. Please call for an appointment. ...Read more

Can I mix amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium in chocolate milk?

Can I mix amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium in chocolate milk?

Yes,but drink it all: You can mix the two together, but then you have to be sure you or your child drinks every last little bit of the combination to get all of the medicine. The medicine you ask about, augmentin, is not very palatable, especially the generic. Yu can also ask many pharmacists to flavor the medication if you or child can't stand the taste, or chase it with something like m&m's to make it taste better. ...Read more

Can I take amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium with Mucinex dm?

Can I take amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium with Mucinex dm?

Absolutely: The two drugs are completely different and should not cross react. Amoxicillin is an antibiotic and hopefully destroys bacteria. (it will not help if you have a viral infection). Mucinex thins secretions and it is very helpful in that it tends to liquify mucus and allows you to handle the thickened mucus if you have a dry cough. Only caveat is are you sure you have a bacterial infection? ...Read more

Which antibiotic is safer for the ears (not ototoxic) Augmentin (Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium) or Cephalexin. Please advise?

Neither one: None of the 3 components(Amoxicillin, Clavulanate, Cephalexin) of these antibiotics are ototoxic. Also, the potassium in the Clavulanate potassium is not enough to even worry about. It is only there to marry up with Clavulinic acid and make a neutral salt. ...Read more
