Introduction

Augmentin or Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium belong to the penicillin antibiotic group of drugs and is used in combination for the treatment of various types of infections in adults and children. This medication works by preventing bacteria from making cell walls that eventually causes bacteria to die. The medication is not found effective against infections caused by viruses such as cold and flu.


Use

To maintain the effectiveness of the Augmentin and reduce the development of drug resistant bacteria, the medication must only be used to prevent infections that are strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria. Amoxicillin present in the medication fights bacteria in the body and Clavulanate Potassium fights bacteria that are resistant to Amoxicillin and other antibiotics. The combination of Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium is used to treat the following bacterial infections: • Infections of the upper respiratory tract like sinusitis and lower respiratory tract like bronchitis pneumonia • Infections of ears, nose, throat and tonsillitis • Infections of the kidney, genital organs or urinary tract • Skin and soft tissue infections • Bones or joint infections • Dental abscesses • Abdomen infection


Side effects

Side effects with Augmentin are likely to occur like any other medications but it is not necessary for each and every patient taking Augmentin that they will experience some or the other side effects. Most of the people tolerate Augmentin quite well and few of the people can experience mild to moderate side effects that usually disappear with the continuation of the medication. Some of the side effects associated with the medication include: • Nausea & Vomiting • Diarrhea • Itching or rashes


storage

Augmentin tablets must be stored at controlled room temperature of 68° to 77°F. The medicine must be kept away from children and pets and must be prevented from direct sunlight, heat and moisture.


Composition

Augmentin contains two active ingredients, one is a penicillin called amoxicillin and the other is clavulanic acid.

Dosage and administration

Patients should strictly follow the dosage and administration process recommended by the doctor to obtain the effective result of the medication. Usually the patients are advised to take one 500 mg of Augmentin tablet taken after every 12 hours or one 250 mg tablet taken after every 8 hour. Patients suffering from severe respiratory tract infection are recommended with one tablet of 875 mg tablet taken every 12 hours or one 500 mg tablet taken in every 8 hours. However, the patients are prescribed with the dosage according to their conditions and severity of the infections.
