Augmentin: The usual recommendation for a sinus infection is to begin antibiotics if there has been no relief in the interim. Howver,onedaytreatment with antibiotics is a no-no.A full couse of antibiotics should be taken for 10 to 21 days. ...Read more

Not sure if you mean: Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) worse than Alinia in side effects?

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 have acute sinusitis, the dr prescribed augmentin and i took 5 pills, I am allergic to it how long will it remain in my system I am severely sick, dizzy vomiting, lethargic, nausea. I just want to know how long until i may start feeling better. I quit t

Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) : Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) should be cleared from your system about 6 to 12 hours after taking it.

Go back to doctor: If you are uncertain what your symptoms are being caused by, and are not feeling better, then you should definitely go back and be re-examined and discuss this at length with the doctor treating you. If you don't get a satisfactory response, then go and get a second opinion. ...Read more
