Prescribed augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875 mg today to take 2x/day. I took first pill at 5pm. Can I take the second dose tonight or is that too close to the first dose?

In brief: Either way is OK

It does't matter much.
If you're an early riser, you can wait until morning, not much more than 12 hours after the first dose. If that means delaying later than about 7 am, take it at bedtime tonight. An early dose won't hurt anything.
