Basically, amoxicillin mixed with clav-something acid which just enhances the effect of amoxicillan, an antibiotic. Used for chest/skin/ear/throat infections..

The other ingredient is Clavulanic Acid, this is a generic for Augmentin.

The Clavulanic Acid helps to prevent the growth of bacteria, while the Amoxicillin fights the infection that is already there.

I'm on Amox/Clav 875/125 and I haven't experienced any of the side effects yet. I had a nasty sinus infectin that has lingered for 4 weeks, and now has become a painful chest cold. After only 2 days on these meds my condition is improving and I only experience very mild drowsiness. The drowsiness is even less than if I take a benadryl.

If your doctor prescribes it, then you should take it. No one should self-medicate with prescriptions. If you have concerns about a particular medication, as your doctor and do not just make decisions on your own.

I am taking amox-clav for a sinus infection that has been lingering for a few weeks. To avoid being ill you should eat yogurt with this medication. I have not had any negative side effects from taking this medication.

I'm on amox-clav 875mg for a nasty sinus infection. I have recurrent sinus infections, and this is my first time on the drug. After two pills (that's one day of the medicine) I am already feeling sweet relief. No side effects and I now look at this med with reverence.

I am on it now. Had complaints about constant dizziness for the last four month. After an MRI was prescibed Amox-Clav as MRI revealed an inflamation behind the inner ear. Been on it now for two days, and today I feel terrible...more dizzy after getting a little better prior to taken this drug, hope they are not side effects...need no more dizzyness.

I have one swollen tonsil and one pus pocket on throat. Hurts mostly in the morn. I am stuck in bed wit foot surgery and can't get to doctor. There is amox-clav and amoxicillian in the medicine cabinet. (can't find penicillian) can anyone give me the name of correct meicine to take? I will find it if you are sure that it is for sore throat.. Gargle with warm salt water helps but doesnt cure.
How about gargling with hydrogen peroxide....(just done swallow- I know) Help me please

I got a script last night at the ER for this....cat bite to upper lip - they gave it to me to prevent an infection ... but all I have found states it's for an existing infection.
1 pill down and yeah, hit the bathroom many times but had IV antibiotics last night to.
Has anyone heard of prescribing in a preventative means?

I was prescribed amox-clav 875/125mg
for a sinus infection that was found after an MRI was performed. The MRI results read: There is a retention cyst in the left maxillary sinus and mucosal thickening in the left sphenoid sinus. After taking these meds along with an inhaler (flunisolide). I feel much better. I've had this problem for years and I am blessed to find out that it is only a sinus infection.

I was prescribed Amox-Clav after being bitten by a dog (no infection at the time it was prescribed, but I read that the majority of dog bites become infected). This is my second day on it (fourth pill). I felt fine after the first three, but today I feel nauseated and groggy.

I was prescribed Amox-Clav 875MG for a 10 day treatment of a sinus infection (2nd one in 6 months). Taking this for 4 days now and I'm feeling much better. I did have to stay close to the bathroom on day 3. Next time I'll try eating yogurt with it like another poster mentioned.

I was taking this medicine for a sinus infection and won't ever again. It was way too strong fir me since I am only 105 lbs. I ended up getting c diff. And the dr. Said it was from the medicine. I would suggest anyone who doesn't weigh alot ask for another medication or eat a ton of yogurt, that does help because the c diff. Was so severe I was hospitalized. And all because of being on this medicine.

This is my third day taking this medicine and I feel no relief. I have severe sinus infection primarily affecting my right side by my eye socket, cheek, and jaw. The pain is so horrible. Hope I can feel some relief soon!

Hi everyone I too just was given this antibiotic today for a terrible sinus infection, I have had pain now for near 2 weeks, waking up with headache has not been fun, last 2 days it was all across my eyebrow and now side of nose and cheekbone, I have had it before but not been given this tablet,.He also gave panadiene forte which i most likely wont use,I prefer to use whatevers natural and non addictive where possible, so if that means 1 or 2 more days of pain so be it. Might try snorting salt ocean water, told its fantastic for sinus probably make me vomit though lol, good luck all
