Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Thank you for your query.
YOu should take amox-clav 2tbl every 12 hours or 1 tbl every 8 hours for this infection. Stomach pain is common side effect of these antibiotics. It can be helpful if you take it with some probiotic yoghurt or banana. If this isnt helpful you should visit doctor and change the medicines. Also, it cant show effect after one or few doses. AT least 36 hours must pass till the result is seen so be patient and everything will be fine soon.

WIsh you good health. If you have any question I ll be glad to help.
