When to Tell Your Doctor About Reactions to Augmentin
Some side effects with Augmentin, while occurring infrequently, are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider. These include but are not limited to:
- Severe diarrhea or diarrhea that lasts longer than two or three days
- Signs of liver damage, such as:
- Yellow eyes or skin (jaundice)
- Upper-right abdominal pain
- Dark urine
- A vaginal yeast infection or thrush (a yeast infection of the mouth)
- Signs of an allergic reaction, including:
- Unexplained rash
- Unexplained swelling
- Difficulty breathing or swallowing.
You may experience some or none of the Augmentin side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be experiencing a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
