Since December 16, 2016, I have had the flu, which turned into an upper respiratory infection and then a sinus infection. I was not treated when I had the flu. The Nurse Practitioner told me Tamiflu would only shorten my symptoms for a day or two and refused to prescribe it. In January, I received augmentin for the URI, then amoxicillin and now a ZPack for the sinus infection. I need to know the side effects of these drugs.

My daughter is 7 and 42lbs. SHe started Augmentin for a second case of strep throat in 3 weeks. My husband accidently gave her 1 TBL of it instead of the 1 tsp she was prescribed. IT was this morning, she is supposed to take it twice a day. Should I give her an evening dose, or skip tonights and continue tomorrow?

I am a 49 yr old male that had umbilical hernia surgery with mesh placement 12 yrs ago. I have lost 80 lbs since then because of eating healthy and exercise. My waist went from 46 to 36 today. Approx 18mths ago I developed slight swelling, redness, pain in navel that began to have some putrid bloody drainage. Went to Dr. and he gave me Augmentin for 7 days to clear up infection. It worked but returned in 3mths. Again, he gave meds and it cleared up. Now, about every 6-8 wks, infection returns. Dr. thinks mesh is infected and needs removed surgically. Is this dangerous? Should I just continue the cycle of meds? Please advise.
