Clavulanate is a beta-lactamase inhibitor that has almost no intrinsic antibacterial activity. However, when combined with other antibiotics, it has a synergistic effect that can increase the antibiotic coverage and overall results. Therefore, you can not just take clavulanate by its self because it has no antibiotic effects. You combined with an additional antibiotic, it enhances the spectrum of activity against many, but not all bacteria. So if amoxicillin did not work, then you should add clavulanate to increase your antibiotic coverage.
