After taking my second Augmentin pill I had horrible nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. I ended up in the hospital for severe dehydration.

I had a really bad fever and swollen tonsils and this medicine did make all the symptoms go away but after about three days of taking it I now feel sick from the constant diarrhea and nausea.

Medicine worked great re: double infections; couple days I could feel difference. HOWEVER, side effects were terrible; still around after completing 10-day treatment. Even with daily probiotics and yogurt the digestive/intestinal issues were bad, constant trips to bathroom; eating would immediately create "stomach talk"; could not leave house; had to cancel family trip as travel would have been difficult. Lethargic, weak, blurry vision, exhausted; with all of this it really affected my mentality. FYI: On the 2nd day when side effects began, I spoke with my pharmacist who encouraged me to stay on it if I could endure these "common" side effects, none being allergic. It has worked but still healing from side effects.

The doctor gave it to me for a chronic case of strep throat. It worked ok just gave me bad headaches and made me nauseous.

Have bad stomach aches and nausea with this, but also it way better than others that I took for diverticulitis. Makes me jittery and have nervous stomach.

Took Augmentin for a bacterial infection. The infection cleared up, but the day I took my last dose, I broke out in severe hives. I was out of town so did not see my doctor. Took Benadryl every 6 hours for 4 days before the hives subsided. The hives covered everywhere from my face to my feet. Although it cleared up my infection, I would not want to face that side effect again. Never had any allergies to antibiotics before.

I had an infection caused by cat bites & scratches on my hand (my cat got caught in a vine by his tail and was in a complete panic; I freed him from the vine, however, during that process he latched onto my hand and bit and scratched - he is ok, thank goodness). I was prescribed this medication; it took time, yet it did work to eliminate the infection. The side-effects of 2 pills/day of 875mg each (total/day = 1,750mg) for 10 days had a strong effect on me. I did not follow-up with the hospital, which I should have done. I would emphasize that if anyone is to take that amount of this medication, to consult with their doctor when side effects are seen.

I have chronic upper respiratory infections - this works much better for me than the newer antibiotics.

My son had over half of the severe reactions to this medicine. He was prescribed this medicine for an ear infection. We spent a whole day in the doctors office being tested for everything from cancer and blood disorders to simple viruses. Thankfully, we found out it was just a reaction to augmentin. Our oldest son has had augmentin before without any reaction what-so-ever.

Works well. Watch for diaper rash (yeast type) in infants. Apply cream to diaper area liberally at every diaper change and give probiotics.

Had a bad sinus infection that went into my lungs, but after 3 days on Augmentin, I started to feel much better. The only drawback for me is the nausea and mild diarrhea.

Works well on me and my children. I have found it works in a few days. I have used it for chest infections and middle ear, and had great results with all my family.
