4.5...............

Concomitant use of allopurinol during treatment with amoxicillin can increase the likelihood of allergic skin reactions. There are no data on the concomitant use of amoxicillin-clavulanate and allopurinol.

In common with other antibiotics, amoxicillin-clavulanate may affect the gut flora, leading to lower oestrogen reabsorption and reduced efficacy of combined oral contraceptives....................

4.8...................

Gastrointestinal disorders

Very common Diarrhoea

Common Nausea, vomiting

Nausea is more often associated with higher oral dosages. If gastrointestinal reactions are evident, they may be reduced by taking AUGMENTIN at the start of a meal.

Uncommon Indigestion

Very Rare Antibiotic-associated colitis (including pseudomembranous colitis and haemorrhagic colitis).

Black hairy tongue
