Thank you for posting a query.

Look, coamoxiclav contains amoxicillin and clavulanic acid. It is a penicillin group of drug. It is a broad spectrum antibiotic.

It can cause diarrhea, nausea, vomiting as side effect. But it can also cause constipation in some individuals.

To get rid of constipation, you need to take some XXXXXXX leafy vegetables. If it fails to provide relief, you should any laxative agent depending upon the severity.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know if you have any more question.
