Have ear infection of the canal. I normally take Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 1g bid. Have Doxycycline 100mg here left over from another case. Which take? Dosage bid/tid
Unlikely to help. Canal infections are treated with topical drops. You need to contact your doc. HT in not here to treat you or help you avoid proper health care.
I have an ear infection whilst on holiday. I have been given augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875 mg by a pharmacist. This seems a high dosage?
Yes. That is an adult dose. Read more...
I have a sinus/ear infection in my left ear. Been takin augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) since 6/11. Is it possible that the ear infection can spread? Both ears are muffled.
Have a horrible headache and a fever. Taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for an ear infection. No spleen. What should I take to help with fever and headache?
Pain/fever relief. It can take a few days for an antibiotic to clear an ear infection enough to reduce the pain and fever. I would recommend acetaminophen or ibuprofen to control these symptoms in the meantime. If the ear pain and fever persist more than 4 days, you should see your doctor again to re-check the ear.

Is it safe to take a zpac for and ear infection after I just took augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for a sinus infection and keflex for a uti that I am currently still takin?
Safe but not needed? It's probably safe but also probably unnecessary. Did the doctor who prescribed azithromycin (Z-pack) know you were taking the other antibiotics? Either augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) or keflex usually would be effective for an ear infection; in fact, augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is used more for this than azithromycin is. Double check with your doctor; I would guess you could either not take the Z-pack or stop taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). Read more...
