Hello. My step daughter started running a fever today of 102. Her Mom gave her 5ml of Augmentine that her sister got prescribed for kidney infection yesterday. She has a doctors appointment tomorrow but my concern is..if she gets prescribed amoxicillin for strep or something will she have a bad reaction with the 2 medications in her system? Thank you

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?

two months ago I began with an upper respiratory infection. I temporarily lost my voice, but this resolved quickly. I then began having palpitations, anterior neck pain, headaches, fatigue. I took a full course of Augmentin, but once stopped, all symptoms continued again. Now I have palpitation that are intense, and wake me out of a sound sleep. My heart thumps all night, and I can tell it skips beats. My anterior neck will have an odd pain, and my left lymph node is swollen again. My sinuses are chronically infected it seems as well. The headache throbs, and the pain is moderate.

I need your advise. I had a kidney infection for 3 weeks. First I was on Bactrim, then Macrobid then the hugh Augmentin. The infection is gone but I had a scope and I have mild gastritis, esophagealitis and duodenitis. It is not known if I have HPylori or not as the test is not back. Also, I have puffiness under the eyes. I think my doctor wants me to go back to work tomorrow, but I am certain that I cannot. Kindly advise me. Thank you so much.
