What you have mentioned here is absolutely possible in certain individual. Augupen is a combination of AMOXYCILLIN and CLAVULINIC ACID. side effects are-
nausea, vomiting, rashes
Loose bowel movements (diarrhoea) may also occur.
Use of the amoxicillin/clavulanic acid combination may cause mild hepatitis in some patients.
Thats why your SGPT and SGOT levels are high.
The best treatment is just to stop the medicine as early as possible.
Nothing is required then if complication stops.
Dont worry your SGPT and SGOT level will revert back to normal within a few days.
