Augmentin Antibiotic Information

There is a lot of information about the prescription antibiotic Augmentin® (amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium) that you should be aware of before starting treatment.
 
Just like other antibiotics, you must finish your entire Augmentin prescription, even if you start feeling better, as stopping the medicine too soon could lead to the development of medication-resistant bacteria.
 
Augmentin may not be suitable for everyone. Therefore, it is important to tell your healthcare provider about all other medications you are taking (to prevent drug interactions) and other existing conditions you have. Talk with your healthcare provider prior to beginning treatment if you have:
 
  • Liver disease, including liver failure, cirrhosis, or hepatitis
  • Kidney disease, such as kidney failure (renal failure)
  • A penicillin allergy
  • Phenylketonuria
  • Any other allergies, including allergies to food, dyes, or preservatives.
