I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your question.

Taking 2 875 Augmention instead of the prescribed dose may not cause serious effects.

So there is no need to panic.

Get medical attention if you develop symptoms like abdominal pain, nausea and diarrhea. If you do not have any of these symptoms, you need not worry.

Just one tablet of Augmentin above the prescribed dose may not be considered as real toxic "overdose".

I hope that answers your question.
