Uses

Amoxicillin/clavulanic acid is a combination  penicillin-type antibiotic used to treat a wide variety of  bacterial infections. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria.
This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as  common coldflu). Unnecessary use or misuse of any antibiotic can lead to its decreased effectiveness.

How to use amoxicillin-potassium clavulanate
Take this  medication by  mouth with a meal or snack as directed by your doctor, usually every 12 hours. Do not take this medication with a high-fat meal because it can decrease the absorption of the drug. Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Also, do not split the tablets unless they have a score line and your doctor or pharmacist tells you to do so. Swallow the whole or split tablet without crushing or chewing.
Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. Therefore, take this drug at evenly spaced intervals. To help you remember, take it at the same times each day.
Continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a return of the infection.
Tell the doctor if your condition persists or worsens.

Side Effects

Diarrheanausea, or  vomiting may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell the doctor or pharmacist promptly. Taking this medication with food will help to reduce  stomach upset.
Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.
Tell the doctor right away if any of these rare but serious side effects occur: dark urine, persistent nausea/vomiting, severe stomach/ abdominal pain, yellowing  eyes/ skin, easy bruising/bleeding, new signs of infection (such as fever, persistent  sore throat), unusual tiredness.
This medication may rarely cause a severe intestinal condition ( Clostridium difficile-associated  diarrhea) due to a type of resistant bacteria. This condition may occur during treatment or weeks to months after treatment has stopped. Do not use anti-diarrhea products or narcotic pain medications if you have any of the following symptoms because these products may make them worse. Tell the doctor right away if you develop: persistent diarrhea, abdominal or stomach pain/cramping,  blood/mucus in your stool.
Use of this medication for prolonged or repeated periods may result in oral  thrush or a new  yeast infection. Contact the doctor if you notice white patches in your  mouth, a change in  vaginal discharge or other new symptoms.
A very serious  allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious  allergic reaction, including:  rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/ tongue/throat), severe  dizzinesstrouble breathing.
Amoxicillin can commonly cause a mild  rash that is usually not serious. However, you may not be able to tell it apart from a rare rash that could be a sign of a  severe allergic reaction. Therefore, get medical help right away if you develop any rash.
This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
