ALT of 80... My PCP put me on Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875mg/125mg BID for 1 month. Is that safe?

ALT of 80... My PCP put me on Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875mg/125mg BID for 1 month. Is that safe?

Safe for what?: Why are taking antibiotics for a month? Augment is known to be pretty harsh on your stomach. It has a reputation for causing diarrhea more frequently than other antibiotics. 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.).

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

I'm 21 weeks pregnant, is it safe to take augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875mg?

Pregnancy Category B: Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is pregnancy category b (http://www. Drugs. Com/augmentin. Html) & therefore is not considered harmful to fetus. However, you always need to tell prescribing physician that you're pregnant so that s/he can help you determine if medication/procedure risk is worth benefit (why do you need augment?), much less safe for you & fetus. ...Read more

I am on Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) Duo and I am due to start taking Doxycycline tomorrow before travelling to a country with Malaria. Are they safe to take together?

Antibiotics: There are substantial risks to taking antibiotics, including Clostridium difficile colitis. Since I do not know why you are taking what you have been prescribed it is difficult to comment, but taken together these agents are likely to alter your bowel flora significantly. You can take them together, but have to assess the risk/benefit ratio. ...Read more

Can I take omnicef and augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) together? I have a sinus infection and was prescribed omnicef but im already on augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is this safe?

Can I take omnicef and augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) together? I have a sinus infection and was prescribed omnicef but im already on augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is this safe?

Similar class: Both are similar in way they attack bacteria. Overall Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is more effective for sinus infections. Omnicef is not used too often anymore for sinus infections and this is supported by the Infectious Disease Society of America. May get more Belly issues on both together. If sinus infection persists with Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) it needs another antibiotic or no antibiotic as a virus/mold/pollution is cause ...Read more

Is augmentin 875mg safe in 3rd trimester of pregnancy for sinus infection?

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
