Http://www. Drugs. Com/augmentin.html notes some concerns about taking this medication if you have liver disease so you might want to clarify this w/your prescribing doc. ...Read more

If is it common and safe for heart to take Clarithomycin for a sinusitis 10 - 14 days (2x 500 mg)? Clarithomycin is only antibiotic (Levoxa and Augmentin doesn't) which help me but after 6 days of taking I have still sometimes pain (exercises etc.).

Should be ok: Finish the course of antibiotics. Your heart should be fine. Pain does no resolve immediately, but make be there intermittently while healing. If you're concerned it is not better, go back and see the doctor that prescribed the medications. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I am suffering from acute bronchial asthma is it safe to consume 3 tablet of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 625 in a day?

Yes: In fact, this is close to the usual dose for your age, however a bacterial infection is an unlikely cause for your acute asthma which may require a short-course of Prednisone if not controlled with bronchodilator and Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is not likely to do any good unless you have a sinus infection at the same time. ...Read more

Just prescribed levaquin after augmentin failed for a sinus infection, I'm nervous to take it, is it safe? Dr said it will clear the infection well.

Depends: Levaquin does have side effects which include increased risk in tendon tear, cardiac issues, and photosensitivity. It is relatively safe if one takes the proper precaution. On the other hand, if your sinus problem had no response to Augmentin at all, I would reassess the diagnosis. Did you have a CT sinus to rule out sinus opening obstruction after Augmentin failed? Consider ENT consult. ...Read more
