Antibiotic: Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is a combination antibiotic, specifically a mix of Amoxicillin and clavulanic acid. Amoxicillin, as you might guess, is in the penicillin family. Clavulanic acid is a medication that works by inhibiting an enzyme called "penicillinase" or "beta-lactamase" that some bacteria produce that destroys penicillin-related drugs. So, clavulonic acid makes Amoxicillin work better in these bacteria. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not long at all: Augmentin gets cleared from the body rapidly, within hours - which is why we have to take it at least 2x a day. Most pharmacy books list a half-life of 1 to 1.5 hours. This assumes of course that you have regular kidney function, or at least close to normal. Usually, if you count '5' half-lives of the medicine, it's considered 'gone' from the system - so within 1 or 2 days I would expect it gone. ...Read more
