Not sure if you mean: Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) worse than Alinia in side effects? Both give you gastrointestinal upset symptoms, but jitteriness and insomnia should not be attributed to antibiotics. Unless the GI upset symptoms (nausea/ diarrhea/ etc.) are keeping you up. Make sure you drink LOTS of water/fluids to replace the volume lost since dehydration is the #1 cause of side effects while on antibiotics. ...Read more

I took augmentin 625 mg for 7 days for a uti, was not effective....what would you recommend ?

I took augmentin 625 mg for 7 days for a uti, was not effective....what would you recommend ?

Resistance suspected: Some germs 'don't respond' to an empiric course of antibiotics. You need proper evaluation with a urinary culture. That will give a 'road map' for what antibiotics can be used... Sometimes there's more to a male UTI compared to a female urinary infection. The anatomy is different (of course) and there could be other factors. If your primary doc can't handle it, you may need a urologist. ...Read more

I have been taking augmentin twice a day for six days now (875 mg). Tomorrow morning (10am) is my last dose. Can I have a few beers tomorrow night?

OK in moderation: Contrary to common belief, alcohol in moderation does not interfere with antibiotics. You needn't have avoided beer or other alcohol because of this treatment and certainly can safely have 2-3 beers at this time. Just don't overdo it -- heavy alcohol can impair the immune system's ability to fight infections. ...Read more

Use separate eating utensils, do frequent hand washing, avoid kissing or hand to mouth contact. Get new tooth brush. Strep is not as contagios as most viruses where a simple sneeze can linger in the air, but strep can remain viable on surfaces over 24 h from mouth to hand to contact. ...Read more
