I finished Amoxicillin/Clavulanate 875mg/125mg sunday morning and monday morning I took levonelle step one emergency pill. Does the pill work?

Probably: Emergency contraceptives are not 100% effective even without being on antibiotics, and it is thought that antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness even further. However, it is not know how significant that decrease is. I would suggest you check a pregnancy test in a couple weeks regardless. And if you are taking antibiotics, use a condom or diaphragm for protection instead of hormonal pills ...Read more

Have alredy taken amoxicillin, clavulanate but still having wheezing sound sumtimes in a day while taking or leaving breath. Plz advice?

Wheezing: Do you have asthma? Do you have seasonal allergies?

I would investigate these possibilities. You may need treatment directed at asthma or allergies. A chest xray is also a good idea if you have not had one.

Are their fevers to suggest an infection? If so this will need to be looked at in more detail.

Finally, I think it's time you went to see your doctor. Breathing issues are very serious. ...Read more

What is the usual dose of amoxicillin+clavulanate potassium and metronidazole for a tooth infection?

Too much: For a normal tooth infection Amoxicillin 875mg two times a day for a week is enough.

They are prescribed in conjunction with treatment, usually a root canal. ...Read more

Please tell me, could I take old augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) medication for mononucleosis?

Why ever?: Mono is a viral infection that is not aided by antibiotics. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) will also expose you to the risks of an antibiotic side effect, and with mono, a large percentage will break out in a measles like rash specific to Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) or Amoxicillin ingestion. ...Read more

My 6month old is having serious allergic reaction to amoxicillin&clavulanate (augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) prescribed by doc. Rash all over his body&face. What can I use?

Call your doctor: Call the doctor who prescribed the antibiotics. Not all rashes are the same. They look different and can be caused by different things depending on if your child has had the antibiotic before and how many doses the child has taken. Rashes in a child may be due to a virus and not antibiotics. Call your doctor. ...Read more

Can Amoxicillin-Clavulanate (Augmentin) 875-125 MG Treat gonorrhea, chlamydia and STI's?

If dosed right: Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) would help kill off some strains of gonorrhea, but not all. It would likely do nothing for chlamydia and many other STI's. It would be best to get in to see a provider knowledgeable about current treatment protocols and get correct treatment, if needed. This is nothing you would want to self treat with borrowed meds. Several of these germs can make you sterile. ...Read more

It should not: Even if one of these produces an interference by one method, thc assays must be confirmed by another test using a different chemical principle if they are to have any consequences to the person.

Is it safe to drink alcohol (one or two beers) while on amoxicillin and clavulanate capsules?

Is it safe to drink alcohol (one or two beers) while on amoxicillin and clavulanate capsules?

No guarantees: There's no major interaction with alcohol. That being said, when sick (the reason I'm assuming you are taking amox/clav) alcohol can delay recovery as well as interfere with productive rest/sleep. Amox/clav is broken down in part by the liver as is alcohol, so there is certainly potential for harm there especially with excess. I would avoid alcohol until feeling well and off antibiotics. ...Read more

I have strep throat. I have some amoxicillin left over, amoxicillin 250 mg and amoxicllin-k clavulanate 875-125 mg. Can I mix these for 10 days?

I have strep throat. I have some amoxicillin left over, amoxicillin 250 mg and amoxicllin-k clavulanate 875-125 mg. Can I mix these for 10 days?

Are you asking if: You can take them together? Adding 250mg of amoxicillin to amoxicillin-clavulanate will NOT provide any additional benefit. Taking them sequentially doesn't make much sense either. If your strep test was (+), you do need the equivalent of a 10 day course of antibiotics. Plain amoxicillin 875 mg 2x/day for 10 days is a effective alternative to amox-clavulanate & has fewer side effects. ...Read more

I'm on my last day of Amoxicillin and Clavulanate, but I've had a left temple headache for 3 days now. My neck, jaw and ears hurt.

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, (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 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 (guaifenesin) dm?

Can I take amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium with Mucinex (guaifenesin) 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 (guaifenesin) 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

NO!!!!!!!!!: Not a chance in the world. For laboratory-confirmed tests, false negatives (the THC is in your system but the level is below the cut-off value) are common but false positives aren't. Sometimes people get surprised by a (+) test b/c they don't realize how long THC and its metabolites continue to be released in the urine. A regular +/- heavy user may test (+) a month after last use. Dr. Anne ...Read more
