Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Taking Augmentin cannot cause the heavy bleeding that you are having.Heavy bleeding might have some other cause like hormonal disturbance or some fibroid which needs to be investigated. you can safely continue with Augmentin for hand infection.

I have a sinus infection and went to a doctor who checked my throat, looked in my ears, asked me what my symptoms were and came to the conclusion that I had sinusitis and prescribed antibiotics/ Augmentin 875. No cultures were taken to see if it was caused by a caviral or bacteria infection. I have taken 1 dose and it is almost time to take the 2nd dose, and then I heard Dr OZ say on his TV show this morning, that taking antibiotics for sinus infections is useless and I can still transmit it to others. I have taken 1 dose and was wondering if it is ok to stop or should I continue since I started the med?
