Problems With Augmentin

Augmentin® (amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium) is an antibiotic often prescribed to treat bacterial infections. Although most people respond well to the medicine, it is important to be aware of potential side effects or complications that may occur with its use.
 
Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea or loose stools are the most commonly reported Augmentin problems. In most cases, these side effects are mild and either do not require treatment or can be treated easily. However, you should seek medical attention if you experience severe or prolonged diarrhea, as it may be a sign of a serious reaction to the antibiotic.
 
If you have liver or kidney disease, you may also develop certain problems while taking Augmentin -- for example, the medication may worsen these conditions. Since liver and kidney disease often affect the way your body handles drugs, your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely during treatment with Augmentin.
