Yes you can certainly try AMOX TR-K CLV 875-125MG for bacterial throat infections, tonsillitis including strep infections (It is a combination of Amoxicillin and Clavulanate and it is also called as Augmentin)

In fact it is one of the commonest antibiotics used for this purpose and it is very effective in treating these types of throat and tonsil infections

The dose is usually 1 tablet twice daily, and you may try to take it for at least about 7 days, and the usual course is about 7 to 10 days

While taking this antibiotic you may also take some over the counter probiotic preparation that contains lactobacillus and this can help in countering any gastrointestinal side effects of this antibiotic

Once again to your main question, yes you can certainly use this antibiotic for the above mentioned type of infection and in fact it is one of the commonest antibiotics used for these kinds of infections and it can help you in getting rid of this infection.

Wishing & reassuring you a quick & complete recovery! And also Wishing you the best health!

All the very best!
