Reviews for Augmentin to treat Otitis Media

I took this when I had acute externa otitis media. My ear was hurting really badly and it was swelled up. I couldn't sleep on the side of the affected ear, couldn't open my jaw wide enough to eat/yawn. It was horrid. I was prescribed 10 tabs (twice a day) and after my prescription, the swelling reduced significantly and also my skin looks amazing. I do not have any side effects. But I love what this medicine has done to my skin especially. I do get very bad breakouts at time, especially when I keep my make up on for too long. Even my colleagues commented on how clean my face looks at the moment.

Review by MommyMel:

This drug was prescribed for my 2.5 year old for Acute Otitis Media Serous. The first two days were great and he felt better within hours of taking it, but by third day his stomach was so messed up. Took Probiotics and gave yogurt, but 4 blow out diapers in a matter of hours, followed by nausea, and his booty was so red that he couldn't even sit down. The side effects were to severe and had to take him off as his little system could not withstand 10 days of it.

This was prescribed to treat a case of pediatric otitis media. It helped to partially clear the infection but did not completely eradicate it.

I recently started a prescription of Augmentin, and the day after I started the prescription started having issues with an erection (not being able to have one).

My daughter has had multiple middle ear infections. She was put on Augmentin for the last infection. After two days on this medication, she had severe diarrhea and a yeast infection. We called the doctor and had them switch her to something different.

For my son, who got multiple ear infections, Augmentin worked well. We always increase his yogurt intake while on antibiotics and he's has little to no trouble with this side effect. Seems to taste Okay to him too. good drug...try to be proactive about the diarrhea and/or yeast infection with porbiotics and taking the med with food. my two cents...

Medicine worked great to clear up my ear infection, but I had a severe rash as a side effect and had to stop taking it. I had no respiratory reaction or other symptoms of allergic reaction.

My 17 month old son gets many ear infections. After 8 days on this one he had an allergic reaction. The doctors in ER told us he is allergic to Penicillin. Also, his ear infection didn't clear-up with this antibiotic. Maybe others will have better luck.

My daughter gets a lot of ear infections and this medicine is the only one that works.
