My wife has been allergic to penicillan her entire life. When she took some in the past, in small dosages, she broke out in severe rashes. Her doctor prescribed Amox/Clav POT 875mg. He stated she should not experience any side affects, such as rashes or hives. I am afraid for her and am hesitant with letting her take it. Please, any advise or guidance is greatly appreciated in advance.

Amongst the possible side-effects of this medication are diarrhea, vomiting, thrush, and a few other conditions. These do not usually require medical attention. However, if the patient experiences an allergic reaction to the medication, jaundice, fever, or severe diarrhea, it is necessary to contact a doctor immediately. As with all antimicrobial agents, pseudomembranous colitis has been associated with the use of amoxicillin-clavulanate. Amoxicillin is known to have caused liver failure in some patients. Amoxicillin is a member of the penicillin family of antibiotics, and therefore should not be taken by patients allergic to penicillin.

Amox/Clav Pot is Augmentin. Amoxil is a safe alternative for most people who are allergic to Penicillin.

Hi, I am too taking this pills but I been on it for couple days now and I'm having head aches, feeling drowsy, my stomach feels hungry when I take this medicine and I do eat before I take this medication and I feel sick (vomiting). Is this part of the side-effects that the medication should be? And plus my nostril feels really dry and has a little blood on it every time I wake up and this is just from me taking the medication.
