875 MG

 1  Upper Respiratory Infection I was taking this and Prednisone. I quit them both 4 days ago and I'm still experiencing severe abdominal cramping. I was doubled over in tears last night.

 2  Bronchitis I started taking augmentin yesterday but then I woke up at 5:30 and had what I think was a beginning of a migraine my head was throbbing and I was really nauseous for like 2 hours I had to go to walmart and get some Tylenol but I fell asleep for like two hours and my headache is still slightly there but the nausea has gone away I think. It might have been from not eating food with this medication. But I was miserable this morning. F 27 1 days

 5  to clear dental infection after root canal The Augmentin 875 mg was very effective and cleared up my painful dental infection. I always took it with a meal as the pharmacist said to and had no side effects. I think it's a good medicine. My endodontist prescribed a strong antibiotic to treat a deep dental infection post root-canal. He suggested Clindomycin or Augmentin; I chose the latter. The 875 mg dose sounded high to me, and I feared I'd get intestinal problems or bad diarrhea as I've occasionally gotten from other antibiotics. I tolerate penicillin meds well, though I believe Ampicillin once gave me bad diarrhea. My internist suggested I also take a probiotic (Phillips Colon Health) to minimize intestinal sx & to continue it a week after finishing Augmentin. I haven't taken a probiotic before & accidentally bought Phillips Digestive Health chewables instead. I also bought Schiff's Digestive Health tabs which has different cultures. The first 2 days I took one of each of those. I disliked the mint taste of Phillips Digestive Health chewables & on the 3rd day found the recommended Phillips Colon Health so I took 1 capsule. Had a little stomach cramping that evening so decided not to take that again. I was unsure how to take a probiotic as I found conflicting info, such as: take it with a meal, take it far apart from the antibiotic or take it 2-3 hours after it etc. I decided to not take any more probiotics until I understood them better so I took the Augmentin the last 4 days w/o taking any probiotic & had no intestinal or other symptoms. I've finished the 7 days of Augmentin and feel it was an effective and problem-free antibiotic for me. I would definitely take it again if it were prescribed F 75 7 days
875 mg 2X D

 1  Blocked saliva gland On about day 5 my lips felt severly chapped they were burning and red to the point they were peeling. Four days later after stopping my lips are still on fire. This happened once before on a 500 mg. I will never take it again. F 55 5 days
 3  sinus infection Other than headaches and loose bowels I didn't have much problems with this medication.... Until last night when I took a pill at midnight before going to bed, with no food. I woke up at 5am with horrible stomach cramps,nausea,vomiting,bloating,chills.I thought I had the stomach virus! Then I realized the huge mistake I made by not eating anything with this medication and wondered if my symptoms were the result of that.By reading all these reviews I feel confident that is not the stomach virus but a side effect from talking this medication on an empty stomach. F 45 6 days

Had taken it before for a throat infection but not this high a dosage. F 33 5 days

 1  Supposed Sinus Infection This gave me New Daily Persistent Headache and ruined my entire life. M 22 1 days

 4  Prostatitis Had to take this antibiotic for 21 days 2x a day. Side effects... Hard time sleeping (insomnia) Mild mood swings. Very tired body feeling. I will say this. My main concern was how this drug was going to affect my stomach. (I have Gastritis) But I did not bother my stomach at all. Any man who has had Prostatitis knows it can be ruff.

 1  URI/pharyngitis I ate a sandwich and took my dose of this medication. Within an hour after taking this medication, I all of a sudden "didn't feel well". I felt severe nausea, stomach cramping, lightheaded and as if I could feel that pale/clammy feeling coming and going. Note, I was in my car at that point, dropping my child off. Another mom took my child and said "you don't look like you feel well". I said "no, I don't" and I ran home which was five minutes away. I had to run immediately to the bathroom. Was hit with diarrhea and stomach cramps so bad and the extreme nausea. I ended up taking some Zofran for the nausea which helped and crawling into bed. Contacted my doctor the next day who told me to stop the med and that she would call something else in. In fact, she told me another patient had the exact same thing happen to her. Today is three days later and my stomach still doesn't feel right. F 49 1 days

 1  ear infection I took the generic version Amox/k clav 875-125 tab. Dizziness, couldn't walk straight, missed a week of work. Some stomach cramps. Never taking this one again. Today I feel normal again. Took last dose yesterday. F 40 7 days

 4  bacterial infections: sinus, ear, l Strong headache up to 2 hrs after dose, feel lethargic at times, mild constipation. M 48 10 days

 4  sinusitis and bronchitis It's my 5th day on this medication and I'm so dizzy I can barely walk! I didn't take my morning pill and im going to half the dose starting tonight. I think the dosage is too high for me:( I also developed a really awful yeast infection and was given duflican, but I also used an otc treatment that seems to be working. Overall it's a great medication for my infection, I just think the dosage was too high for me which caused these side effects I usually don't have. F 44 10 days
 1  Tooth Abcess Stomach cramps. Bloating and gas. Nausea Extreme irritability. Complete loss of sex drive/interest Extreme itch/burning in chest, stomach and abdomen The first day, I had a little abdominal discomfort, but nothing that was unexpected. By the end of the day, my wife pointed out to me that I seemed very angry (in words that are less than flattering). The second day, the stomach discomfort increased, and I just felt 'wrong'. The third day, the discomfort hit it's peak, including burning and itching deep in my core. I almost went to the ER before checking around and learning that these were indeed side effects. I immediately tossed these in the trash and contact my Dr. about an alternative. Never again... I was in hell. M 34 3 days

 1  Tooth abscess Started off with serious diarrhea every time I took it. Eventually that stopped and I thought I was in the clear until i became insanely agitated and aggressive. I've never felt like this before. I feel like I'm on the edge of cliff about to jump and everything is nudging me closer to the edge. The dumbest things are setting me off . Stay away! F 29 8 days
 1  Swollen lymph nodes Bloating, headache, severe diarrhea, vomiting and abd pain. All of this after only the fourth dose. Do not take abx often. Never have had probs before but will never take again! F 44 2 days

 1  Post cyst removal I was aware this medication would up-set my stomach so I had my lunch around 2pm and took my pill with a full glass of water within 15 minutes after I ate. About an hour and a half later I was hit HARD with one of the worst headaches I have ever had followed by extreme dizziness. After an hour of pain I started vomiting non stop then dry heaving. Had to call the doctor on call go to the ER and push the meds out of my system... Around 5:00am, 15 HOURS later, just started to feel ok and get a handle on it, stomach is still a little uneasy. Never Ever will I take this!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F 29 1 days
 1  sinus infection I totally agree with the same people about having a stroke , I took it for 3 days stop causing more problems than ever, inept doctor, prescribed me this , why would they do such a thing , the side effects are terrible I honestly don't think , don't know there medicine M 52 10 days

 1  Sinus and ear canal infection Felt some mild abdominal discomfort on the first day. On day two, ate dinner and took 2nd pill for the day. I immediately began to feel full as if I had eaten every item on a buffet. I then began to feel slightly nauseous and have some increasing abdominal pain. Throughout day three, I began to experience occasional moderate to severe stomach and intestinal burning and pain, and nausea that would come and go randomly with varying degrees of intensity. I did not take the drug at all on day three, and am still experiencing these pains M 49 2 days
125 MG 2X D

 1  Ear infection/sinus First day I was taking theses I had NO symptoms after that I started getting lightheaded and dizzy (vertigo almost like symptoms) made me feel really depressed too almost high anxiety.. Very tired also.. Made me feel like I was in a dream like state also...I've been convincing myself to take these in hopes it would clear any infection I had and that the side effect symptoms would just vanish after taking Augmentin. I'm on my last pill today thank god! F 22 7 days

 5  severe stitch and pain in bladder None it really helped everything was gone the next day as i was also spotting brown along with the pain as it was only a few days after my 1st AF after my missed miscarriage F 22 7 days

 3  Sinus infection Nightwaking, heart palpitations, stomach pain, loose stools in hour following dosage F 35 6 days

 1  infection in my finger diarrhea 4 times out the day stomach keep making all types of noise , bottom is sore F 33 3 days
 1  Severe Sinusitis I took 1 pill twice a day. Rx was for 7 days but I had to quit after 3 days because my stomach hurt so bad & had diarrhea. I quit taking it four days ago and I still feel like I could throw up or have a loose stool at ANY time without warning. This is terrible. The side effects are far worse than the sinusitis it's supposed to treat. I've been told by doctor to eat yogurt and take lactobacillus acidophilus supplements until the good bacteria are fully replaced in my digestive tract. Augmentin kills both good & bad bacteria, so eating yogurt & taking supplements will help. F 37 3 days

 4  Sinus Severe cramps, headache, fatigue Day 3 three severe cramps, could not function, however had this sinus thing going on for too long. Amoxicillin did not clear up infection so Dr. put me on this. Was going to stop but needed to get better so stayed with it. I doubled up on yogurt, gingerale and pepto and felt much better in a day. F 54 14 days

 2  cat scratch fever Had diarrhea, dizziness, red spots on body but not itchy, anxiety, couldnt sleep at night F 23 10 days

 1  severe sinusitis I had sinusitis on the right side of my face with severe jaw pain and thick yellow greenish drainage. Three days after taking Augmentin,I developed mild odorless diarrhea 3-4 times daily. No cramps then, just diarrhea. The sinus pain and mucus left,but I developed facial numbness on that side, which I still have.I finished the 10 day dose on Monday. By Thursday I had unbearable stomach cramps, with light colored semi-solid feces that contained undigested food. I have never seen my feces look like this. I started having 15-25 small strange looking & strange smelling BM'S/day. I would have a BM after eating or drinking anything. A sip of water or even chewing gum. The cramps felt like I was going to have an enormous dump or diarrhea. The cramps had me bent over almost in tears. A week has passed and I am still having after effects from Augmentin. From this point on my Dr will have to prescribe a different antibiotic. The cramps were more painful than the jaw pain caused by the sinus infection. I am currently taking Prilosec,Dicyclomine, Probiotics,and Immodium/Dr. To me it's just not worth taking. F 52 10 days

 1  Sinusitis Half Way Through The 10 Day Treatment I Ended Up In The ER Twice Convinced I Was Having A Stroke. I Experienced Facial Numbness, Tingling In My Left Arm, Stiffness In My Neck, Brain Fog, Unbearable Pain And Pressure At The Base Of My Skull. I Am Lethargic And Weak. CT Scan And MRI Found Nothing And The Inept Doctors Made No Connection Between The Drug And My Symptoms. Their Diagnosis Varied From Lyme Disease To Mind Over Matter. This drug should be banned. The side effects do not justify the benefit. A week after taking the drug, I am feeling worse than I did when I started. I hope that the numbness in my left arm and malaise resolve with time. Why my doctor would prescribe such a high dose for mild sinusitis is beyond me. I have lost all faith in doctors and pharmaceuticals because of this horrific experience. F 34 5 days

 3  sinus infection Loose stools and stomach bloating F 64 10 days

 1  infected abscess on thigh Oh my god the dizziness is unreal, the whole room is spinning. Feel totally drunk. Can't drive. Distorted reality. Feel very sick. Hot flushes, really bad stomach cramps, chest pains, depression. Extreme fatigue. Meant to to take it for 7 days but I cannot. I feel I need to go to bed for a month. Horrible horrible drug. F 30 3 days

 1  sinus infection Within 2 hours of first dose, violent vomiting, chills, tremors, sweats, hyperventilation. Needed 911/ambulance/ER. Was immediately put on IV fluids, anit-vomiting meds and later IV painkillers. Vomiting and heaving so violently, there was blood. Severe abdominal pain. Blood pressure went way down. F 57 1 days
875 - 125 1X D

 1  Sinus/ear infection Very loose/muddy stools almost immediately, then abdominal pain by day 3, which became excruciating, then vomiting even though I had taken with food. Really helped the sinus and ear infections, but completely sidelined me. It was awful. F 57 3 days

 4  respiratory infection mild diarrhea this is the only antibiotic that clears up my respiratory/sinus infections every time. Other antibiotics I'm either allergic to or I have to take 2 rounds of for about 20 days because they are not strong enough. I do have mild stomach problems for a few days but the side effects are worth feeling better F 30 10 days
875/125 2X D

 2  Sinus Infection Severe stomach cramps/burning pain in my stomach I was prescribed a 10 day course. The first few days I had some mild stomach upset, loss of appetite, and fatigue. Nothing too serious. However, on day 5, I woke up in the middle of the night with severe stomach pain; I had horrible burning pain in my stomach that extended into my chest. I still took my pill the next morning since I didn't immediately associate the pain with the antibiotic. Big mistake. I became very nauseous and was literally doubled over with pain; burning and cramping that extended into my chest, back and throat spasms, etc. By that evening, I was in agony. My husband wanted to take me to the ER but I was able to get through it with a ton of antacids and gas-x. It has been over 24 hours since I took the last pill and my stomach still hurts. But at least I am no longer in excruciating pain. I honestly thought I was dying. F 44 6 days

 4  stitches in arm antibiotics make my lips peel and my tongue and throat very sensitive and scratchy but they all do and this had no other side effects F 52 10 days
875 2X D
 4  Severe Ear Infection Occasional diarrhea; mild nausea; yeast infection Took this to protect my perforated eardrums from further infection. They healed up just fine and I felt much better within about 4 days of treatment. Do take a probiotic with it, though, as it will mess up your gut flora and can cause yeast infections/thrush. F 19 10 days
