For Sinusitis: "I took 850 amox. clavulane for 14 days twice a day. No side effects whatsoever, infection start fade away immediately, very slowly I'm feeling better each day, until I get to certain point where I'm not totally cured but almost, from that point to the end of the treatment there's no improvement . When I stop the medication infection very rapidly come back again .... this is my second treatment. I don't know what else I can do"

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate) for Sinusitis: "Augmentin: The first time I took it was about 8 yrs ago. It did the job quick but I had diarrhea for about a year. {not kidding! also developed plantar fasciitis for a brief period possibly due to a lack of certain nutrients, caused by the extended bout of diarrhea} I did not know what probiotics are at the time!?:( I blamed myself and that other guy, My doctor for not mentioning the benefits of probiotics. Probiotics maintain a healthy level of good bacteria that most antibiotics will destroy, This prevents or minimizes greatly any diarrhea. Augmentin also contains clavulanic acid which causes the upset stomach. Ranitidine, which is an acid reducer can help soften the sour stomach often associated with augmentin. Augmentin does work!!!"

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate) for Sinusitis: "I suffer from chronic sinus infections and migraine headaches. I usually can tell if a sinus infection has taken hold when sumatriptan ( migraine med) is not working! first go round a couple year ago with Augmentin 875 mg big pills was awful, and I experienced what others reported with horrible chemo like diareah effects, barely made it through 5 of 10 days, but felt better in head afterwards. decided to gut it out again a couple years later with another sinus infection after weaker antibiotics did not work and had a much easier time with augmentin. perhaps body needs to adjust yo this med, but thank god it works!"

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate) for Urinary Tract Infection: "I was given Augmentin to take after I Got an ear infection in the left ear but also had a perferated ear drum on the right. I went to the drs after a week and not only had the infection started to heal I now had an infection in both ears. He prescribed me more and seemed stumped as to why i was not improving. Its now been 2 weeks and I have suffered diarrhea and have been dealing with thrush for the past 3 days. On top of this I am constantly in a massive state of confusion and my skin is dry and red, my pill have ceased to work. I have stopped taking them and am seeing the dr tomorrow. Not only did the antibiotics not help my original problem now i have a whole list of other issues i need to fix."

For Strep Throat: "First day, i had no side effects, caught my strep within 3 days of having it. Second day strep was getting better as well as going number 2 more. Also lack of sleep because of the drug, kept waking up in the middle of the night. (It makes you restless). Besides the side effects it did its job and thats really what counts."

My heart rate even went to 180 where I had to end up going to the emergency room. Left there with orders not to take augmentin and was given prescriptions for ativan (my resting heart rate was 130) and clindamycin"

For Sinusitis: "Had increased heart rate and shortness of breath just after a few hours of taking it followed by severe nausea and vomiting over night. The next day felt extremely week and tired with light nausea and no appetite. My stomach and lower back were sensitive to the touch and achy. I was prescribed this two separate times in a year and both times had this reaction. Both times the doctors stopped it's use and prescribed something else."

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate) for Skin or Soft Tissue Infection: "I have adult acne and rosacea due to pcos. I have redness, welt type acne, rash type scne, black/white heads on my face.

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate) for Sinusitis: "Suffered for almost a week before heading to the doctor. My sinus infection had gotten so bad it lead to an ear infection. After trying to self medicate for almost a week (HUGE FAIL) I finally gave in. My lovely doctor prescribed Augmentin. I started Augmentin Thursday and today I am almost feeling like myself again. No negative side affects for me whatsoever :) pretty satisfied "

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate) for Sinusitis: "Had the worst sinus infection of my life and couldn't sleep for 2 days. my sinuses felt like concrete. After 2 days on Augmentin I finally felt relief. It took 7 days to completely get rid of the infection. No side effects, maybe because I'm 6 ft 7 and weigh 260 lbs and had more body mass."

For Bacterial Infection: "I was prescribed it for a sinus infections infection but I'd gone to the doctor for a UTI. He dismissed the UTI for lack of any positive test results. This medication cleared up both after 8 days. I also felt well for the first time in years. I had energy, no joint paint, and my urethritis was completely gone. Now three month later the symptoms have slowly returned -except for the sinus infection- but having no positive test results for bacteria, I can't get any more of this. They need better tests!"

For Strep Throat: "I've been taking this drug for possible strep throat. Since I started taking it I've had extreme nausea, vomiting, dizziness, heart burn, chest pains, joint pain, pounding headache, insomnia, confusion, and loss of appetite. I don't know if I'm having problems because I'm young (16) but I don't plan on ever taking this drug again ."

For Bronchitis: "Prescribed Amox-Clav after trying to fight off bronchitis by myself for 2 weeks. Given 875 mg/twice a day for 10 days. By day 3 I noticed a dramatic lessening of my coughing, clearing of my sinuses (which was unexpected). By day 5 my cough is almost completely gone. On day 5 my stools are very off -- almost nothing is produced and it's slimy in consistency. I will try probiotics to see if it helps. Note last night and the first day I took this I suddenly felt cold and started shaking for 15 minutes. I layered up immediately and felt fine after 10 minutes or so. I suspect being hungry triggered this. When I eat a bit of food just before the pill my stomach cramps are far less. I also recommend taking yogurt for diaherria."

For Sinusitis: "I have a sinus infection and after taking this medication for two day, I feel worse. I have diarrhea, nausea and a headache. I've taken this med before but not at this dosage. I am on my way back to the doctor for a lesser dosage or a different drug."

For Bronchitis: "I was given AMOX 500MG/CLAVULAN 125MG to be taken 3 times a day for 10 days for Bronchitis at a walk-in clinic. The 3rd day into this Rx I developed severe uncontrollable watery diarrhea 45 times a day, by day 6, I stopped taking the Rx. I went for weeks with severe diarrhea this Rx wiped out ALL my gut flora, clostridium difficile attacked my large intestine and colon. It took 4 months of antibiotics & living on a BRAT diet to get this under some control to a point where I am only be having diarrhea 8-10 times per day, for the past 20 months, my body still doesn't know how to form a stool. I live with c. difficile. My GP will not prescribe me any antibiotics at all now. Clavulan has destroyed my body!"

For Bacterial Infection: "This medicine was given to me for a bacterial infection that I had from a abscess on my butt. It did help rid the infection but I had almost every possible side effects that comes with this medicine. I had a loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting whenever I would try to eat or right after and whenever I would attempt to take another pill. I also had crazy thoughts or hallucinations not sure what was going on. I couldn't sleep, couldn't stand for longer than a few seconds without get dizzy. I almost passed out in the shower every day. I had really bad fevers that would go back and forth all day. I could go on but I'll be all day. I was told to stop taking it once I developed a bad diaper rash. It works but it may not be worth all the side effect"

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate) for Strep Throat: "I had a wicked bout of strep while travelling in Europe. I had a round of Amoxicillin which didn't quite clear it, so I was prescribed Augmentin. I had 30 hours of travel ahead of me, and two hours of sleep to go on, but despite the circumstances, I began to feel much better! The only side effects I've had so far have been that the acne on my cheeks has completely cleared up and I have better than average energy levels (not sure if either of these are related to the Augmentin, but the timing lines up perfectly)."

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate) for Sinusitis: "Monday morning I went to my doctor and she diagnosed me with Sinusitis, and prescribed me with Augmentin. I took my first dose at around 11 am, 4 hours later I was feeling terribly nauseous with awful cramps. Though the medication had helped subside the pain in my head, there was a newfound pain in stomach. I stopped taking the medication on Wednesday because the stomach pains were unbearable. In my experience, this medication helped get rid of my sinus infection but now I am suffering through daily nausea and cramps and I have been off the antibiotics for 2 days."

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate) for Sinusitis: "Seem to work very well. I have had a sinus infection for over a week and was feeling miserable. I started taking Augmentin yesterday and today I already feel 90% better! Yay! I think it is very important to take a high potency good bacteria pill (forgetting right now what they are called!) Very pleased with this perscription"
