I have taken five out of fifteen augmentin and still dont feel much better, should i go back to my doctor?

Augmentin may show the optimum effect in 4-5 days occasionally. Go to your doctor, if there is no relief at all or there is an aggravation of the symptoms.

Is there any natural remedies i can take?
Cranberry extract capsule available at the health stores would be helpful. Drinking plenty of fluids too is beneficial. Following would increase your body immunity:

1) Omega 3; Fish oil capsule and flaxseed oil capsule.

2) Ginkgo Biloba

3) Zinc 30 mg.
