Can i take augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) and nyquil 5 days after i try to conceive. Technically i'm not pregnant. Will it hurt the embryo if there is one?
Conception is the day the sperm fertilize the egg, and that's the day you become pregnant. Your egg will be ready for fertilization for about 24 hrs after you ovulate, and sperm can live for about 3 days, so you can get pregnant during that window of opportunity. Not sure why you don't think you're pregnant.

Minastrin 24 and Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875 will i still be protected with my birth control seeing it is a combination bill i am a little nervous about pregnancy?
Possibly: There is some suggestion that amoxicillin can decrease the effect of the ethinyl estradiol component of minastrin. But overall there is limited data to suggest any significant contraception compromise. In the end, you'll still be best served by using a second form of birth control like condoms while using the two medications together. Best of luck. ...Read more
I am taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 625mg from last sunday, i missed my periods and also have many symptoms of pregnancy. Is this symptoms because of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate).
Yes: By the 3rd trimester, fetal development is much less an issue and thus the Augmentin should be safe. If your congestion is from the sinus infection, it will improve in 3-4 days. However if the problem is from allergy, a nasal steroid may work. Vasomotor rhinitis of pregnancy from hormonal changes can also be an issue in which case a trial with nasal antihistamine may work (not cat. B however) ...Read more
I missed my period for 2days after having unprotected sex, but my period came after taking augmentin for uti. Could I be pregnant?
Pregnancy unlikely: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

34 weeks pregnant. will taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for sinus infection put me at risk for bacterial vaginosis?
Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate): Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is a Class B Agent so is reasonably safe.

It will not cause problems and may relieve sinusitis. ...Read more
Is keflex better than augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). Have a kidney infection since monday still very sore so doc changed tablets today to keflex. I'm 23 weeks pregnant.

Your physician changed your antibiotic because they probably have a culture report that tells them that the first antibiotic, which is very common, would not work against the bug causing your infection. ...Read more
