Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Augmentin is safer for liver as it rarely causes liver enzymes elevation. However both medicine has very low liver involvement and are quite safe for the liver.. The majority of both antibiotics are cleared with urine.

Hope it will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
