Good Morning. I had been taking Doxycycline for approximately 3 days when I began experiencing tinnitus. I have not taken that medication since this Monday (11/27/17). Is it safe to begin taking Augmentin? If so, should I only take the Augmentin for the remaining 7 days?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I do not take any daily medications. I am allergic to Keflex--it causes me to have hives.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I don't have any chronic health problems.

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Why were you prescribed the antibiotic? What symptoms did you have? Do you still continue to have symptoms?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I had a severe sore throat and cough. I was diagnosed with a bacterial infection. I no longer have the sore throat but still have the cough.

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying.

For a permanent cure and eradication of the infection, you can safely take Augmentin now and you should take it for 7 days. This will be effective in curing the bacterial infection. Taking it now will not lead to any interaction with the doxycycline.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
