Hello,

Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) can affect the digestive systems of many people. It isn't uncommon at all for this to happen. You will need to call the prescriber's office so he or she can change your antibiotic to one that is easier on the digestive system.

I'm sorry this happened, but you never know who is going to respond to the antibiotic this way who isn't. There are many other antibiotics to choose from, so this should not be a problem. I would call right away though so the new prescription can be called in today or first thing in the morning. Meanwhile, it is best not to take any more of the augmentin.

Best regards,

Schuyler
