I was prescribed Augmentin 625mg tablets 12 hourly for 7 days for a throat infection. ..Now the infection is back and i need to know if i can retake the same dose. I stopped the medication exactly 8 days back.

Question: Do i retake the course? another 7 day course of the same dose and tablet?

The infection is as bad. I cant swallow my own saliva or yawn properly- my throat hurts very badly. I'm having difficulty talking because of the pain. My right ear is also itching from inside.

I was taking brufen 400mg for the pain, have started that. But not sure about the antibiotic
