Answered by Dr. Chakravarthy Mazumdar 26 minutes later
Brief Answer: Amoxycillin and clav does not help Detailed Answer: Hi, If it simple bad taste in mouth not associated with any medical problem I suggest you to think of simple remedies like mouth fresher, mint leaves or lemon drops. Amoxycillin plus clav will aggravate the problem of bad taste as they are higher dose of antibiotics and their most common side effect is bad taste in the mouth and nausea. If you have further query please let me know.
