Which antibiotic is safer for the ears (not ototoxic) Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium) or Cephalexin. Please advise?

A respiratory fluoroquinolone (levofloxacin or moxifloxacin) is another option for penicillin-allergic patients. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and Macrolides are not recommended because of high resistance rates. ...Read more
