My 11 year old daughter was prescribed chewable Augmentin twice a day for strep throat.
Since it upsets her stomach, I can't give her one before school.
Can I give her 1 at 3 pm and the other before bed at 9 pm?

No, that wouldn't a good idea.

Since it's an antibiotic, the intent is to keep it regularly spaced out, to keep the levels up in her body long enough for the bacteria to be eradicated. Thus, you'd be leaving too long of a gap, between the 9pm one and the 3pm one going round the clock.

As to the nausea, has she tried taking it with food?

Other side effects may include non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Finally I know the antibiotic may kill even the good bacteria in the stomach?How to counter that..Thanks
