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.

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?

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...
