Reviews for Amoxicillin/clavulanate to treat Bronchitis

Sort by:

"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."

"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!"

"I was prescribed 875mg bid.. It gave me strong side effects: heart skipping, dizziness and weakness. I reduced it to once a day to see if it would reduce any side effect. It did reduce some dizziness and weakness.. But my chest pain remains. I stopped taking it. I am going to see doctor to find out why my chest hurts."

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate): "I am on day 2 of Antibiotics. I took the Z pack only one dose and had horrible reaction to it. (Swelling of face, fever, diarrhea YOU NAME IT) Stopped taking it and two days later started Augmentin. I have been taking Culturelle (Lactobacillus GG) Two hours before or after taking the antibiotics. Seems to be helping. No diarrhea. No gas. No hives/Itchy skin. But I don't know if its long enough to tell. ***Take those pro-biotics. *** Dairy products are putting me over the edge. Stick to non dairy while taking this."

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate): "This is the second time I have been on this medicine for bronchitis. The first time around it worked great but this time not so fast. I have been on it for 4 days and my symptoms are still the same just not as intense."

"I have sinusitis and bronchitis at the same time. I have been in so much pain in my head and chest for the past 5 days so my doctor prescribed me amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium tablets 875mg and 125mg. This medicine has caused dizziness, nausea, exhaustion, and weakness. "

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate): "Had bronchitis after five weeks from having CABG surgery. My doctor prescribed Augmentin and it worked after having the first pill. At this time I am in my second day and the fever is gone minor cough and to my surprise my sinuses are clearing too since I have chronic sinus alergies."

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate): "Went to urgent care for chronic bronchitis and doc gave me Biaxin which I told him it did not work in past...fever elevated two degrees in two days..went back he gave me doxycycline which eventually stopped the yellow mucus production for a few days then right back. I went to my own doctor this morning and she gave me Augmentin. Have an allergy to Avelox. After one dose I can tell this is working better than doxycycline did in two days so definitely recommend."

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate): "Cleared up a bad case of bronchitis in a week and only side effects were some coughing an hr or so after taking it as all the bacteria was dying and body getting rid of it in the mucus. Take it with food and a lot of water. It works excellent, side effects are very minor and you should also consider taking a probiotic during and after using it just take a few hrs before or after it. Very effective antibiotic!"

Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanate): "This is the best antibiotic for the treatment of sinusitis and bronchitis. ALL antibiotics can give you diarrhea because they also can destroy the 'good' bacteria in your gut. You can alleviate this by taking a pro-biotic in small doses, or just have some yogurt for breakfast."

"This medication worked wonders! My lungs hurt so bad, and I was coughing with a rattling sound in my chest. After one day of the medicine, I was breathing so much easier and the rattling was gone."
