My boyfriend got bit on both hands seperating our 2 pitbulls from fighting and he got some series bites on both hands. Anyways the doctor prescribed this antibiotic to him to take the chewable tablets 3 times a day and he is getting sick. I read of the symptoms online and all the side effects he is having compared to an overdose. But the last time he took the antibiotic was yesterday one time cause it made him very nauseated. He got bit last friday. Any advice to save us a trip to the hospital for a large bill? Answered by Caitlin Valadez 6 months ago.
This is NOT, as someone else suggested, a reaction or overdose. The Clavulanate causes severe stomach discomfort in some individuals. You MUST take Augmentin (the brand name for this) with food, typically something heavy. It does not affect absorption but does decrease the pain associated with the stomach discomfort. You may also want to take yogurt or acidophilus pills/cultures, as the replacement of intestinal flora is known to decrease intestinal discomfort and diarrhea related to Augmentin intake. Finally, if he had animal bites and is taking the drug due to this, DO NOT discontinue the drug until a doctor tells you so. You still may want to call the physician if he cannot tolerate the side effects, but taking the meds is important to prevent him from getting a serious bacterial blood and/or skin infection.

Call your doctor or a pharmacy (like a 24hr one) and explain the situation. They should be able to determine whether the side effects are signs of an overdose. Just a thought - has he been taking the med with food? I'm pretty sure it is recommended with food. If he has been taking it on an empty stomach, it may explain why he is having an upset stomach. I hope this helps. Answered by Lauri Schamp 6 months ago.
If he is taking one tablet 3 times a day - he is not overdosing. Nausea, stomach ache and diarrhea are frequent side effects. If they are severe, you should call your doctor so he can consider an alternative, like clindamycin. Bites are serious wounds and you need to talk to you doc and not just stop the antibiotics.

I tried Augmentin a couple of times in the remote past, and it gave me a heck of a bellyache about day 3 both times. If it's been a week and he isn't infected, he isn't likely to become infected at this point, but if he's trying to treat an active infection, he'll need something else.

If you call the pharmacy and ask for the pharmacist directly, they should be able to resolve the problem without a trip to the hospital or doctor's office. Answered by Dexter Rudman 6 months ago.
Sounds like your man is allergic to augmentin. The antibiotic needs to stopped and switched to something else. Do not give him anymore of it. He can go into shock. Answered by Ranae Stricklind 6 months ago.
Amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium liquid for cats?
The food thing worked with other medicine for the same cat. Anyway your answer really doesn't help at all and doesn't even answer my question.
Asked by Oswaldo Swarr 6 months ago.
It won't detract from the effectiveness of the medication, if that's what you are asking. In fact, it SHOULD be given with food to prevent GI upset. However, it most likely will also mean that you won't know that your cat got the full dose if he doesn't eat every last lick of food out of the bowl right away and if he doesn't get the full dose it won't get rid of the infection. Also, most liquid medications will have a taste that your cat will be able to recognize immediately and most cats will not eat food that has had meds mixed in. If he does take a taste and doesn't like it, he may develop an aversion to the food itself and refuse to eat it in the future even when it isn't laced with medication. For these reasons, hiding medication in a cat's food is never recommended. Answered by Iluminada Chae 6 months ago.
If you mix it with food im sure the cat wont eat it.Cats are really hard to give medicine to.Go online and look up ways to give cats liquid medicine.Find the best one that works for you and your cat.Stay calm when you give it,that can help the cat.GOOD LUCK! Answered by Nelida Ramiez 6 months ago.
Cats do like to groom. My trick was to mix medicine with butter and smear it on my cat's nose. She would never eat a pill, but gladly licked her nose clean. Answered by Dagmar Speckman 6 months ago.
I know Amox can be mixed in. Not sure of the other. Call your vet and ask first. Answered by Tawna Gigante 6 months ago.
Amoxicillin/clavulanate potassium (Augmentin)?
Hi, my sister has a swollen lymph node in her neck and the Dr has prescribed Amoxicillin/clavulanate potassium. At $60.00 a bottle, I am wondering if a cheaper antibiotic could have been prescribed?
Asked by Danelle Linzan 6 months ago.
Love, this is the generic of Augmentin, a very good drug. If you have no other means e.g. samples from the doctor, then the generic amox/clavulanate is probably the best thing for your sister. It's ridiculously expensive in the states, but it's worth it for her well being. Answered by Carol Raid 6 months ago.
Get generic. Augmentin is Amoxicillin + Clavulanic Acid or Co-Amoxiclav. Your pharmacist can help you. Just make sure you get the same dose strength (if it says 375mg on the Rx make sure you get 375mg not the 625mg tablets). Answered by Laurinda Lafayette 6 months ago.
You might want to ask the doc for a different drug. Amoxicillin isn't even effective for most people. I took it recently and was just blowing my money. The drug did nothing after I took three a day for three days. Ask for a Z pak. Answered by Winnie Ibdah 6 months ago.
confident it incredibly is effortless with antibiotics i might touch the physician interior the morning who will probrally inform you to take immodium and consume bananas for potassium. if it incredibly is honestly undesirable supply up the medicine. take a immodium and consume bananas.

As far as I kow antibiotics and over the counter medicine does mix, but if you are taking the antibiotics you will not need the Robitussin after 24 hours of taking the meds, as they will be doing their job.

a superb style of issues. that's usually familiar as Clavamox. I surely have seen it used for almost each little thing, and that i won't remember something that I surely have not seen it used to handle (yet that would not recommend that there are circumstances whilst it is going to no longer be used). Many vets do have a call for particular antibiotics for particular issues because of the fact they think of that they artwork greater beneficial. Answered by Gladis Scharbor 6 months ago.
7 weeks pregnant w/ a terrible UTI?
Mr. Awesome, you're such a tool. That's not the only way women get UTIs. Don't answer if you're going to be so dumb & not helpful. But thanks to the 2nd person who answered.
Asked by Evita Tschida 6 months ago.
I'm 7 weeks pregnant, and have had a terrible (what I thought was a bladder infection) UTI. On Tuesday, my doctor put me on Amoxicillin (500mg. twice a day), then last night she called very concerned about my urine results & wanted me to discontinue the use of Amoxicillin. She changed my meds. to Amoxicillin and Clavulanate. Does anyone happen to know the difference between Amoxicillin and Amoxicillin & Clavulanate? I also have to take them twice a day. And whenever I finish them, I have to go back to the doctor's for another check up. Both meds. are category B (so they're safe for pregnant women). So I'm just wondering, what's the whole difference between both meds.? Answered by Nolan Helfert 6 months ago.
Amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium (as the name implies) contains two different medications: amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium (also known as clavulanic acid or simply clavulanate). Amoxicillin belongs to a group of medications known as aminopenicillins, which is part of a larger group of medications known as beta-lactam antibiotics (named after the ring-like "lactam" structure of these antibiotics). Amoxicillin works by stopping bacteria from making cell walls, which eventually causes the bacteria to die. However, many bacteria have developed resistance to amoxicillin and similar antibiotics by producing enzymes called beta-lactamases. Beta-lactamases break the beta-lactam ring, making amoxicillin and similar antibiotics ineffective. The other component of the antibiotic is known as a beta-lactamase inhibitor. Clavulanate binds to bacterial beta-lactamase and stops the enzymes from breaking down the amoxicillin molecule. Clavulanate itself has no significant antibacterial activity; it merely helps to prevent amoxicillin from being broken down by bacteria that would otherwise be resistant to it. Essentially, clavulanate "augments" the activity of amoxicillin. Answered by Edris Mautner 6 months ago.
Ignore the dumb*** who said to stop having sex with dirty men. This is very common in pregnant women.It just seems like you let it go pretty far before getting it checked out.I don't know the difference between the meds but I'm sure you can google it or ask jeeves. Good luck to you and your baby and next time please don't assume it's something just get it checked out to protect your health and babies. Answered by Demarcus Pharo 6 months ago.
I get UTI's all the time... I am 37 weeks pregnant, and I still have one. It's not good to have when you're pregnant, but having sex with dirty men is NOT how you get them!! There are many ways to get them, like holding in your urine, taking in too many sugars (like pop, tea), not drinking enough water. Mr. Awesome is ridiculous. Answered by Adrianna Tilly 6 months ago.
