    I religiously took the prescribed Augmentin for seven days. At the end seven days my health was not improved in the slightest. I am very disappointed in the effectiveness of this medication. I will ask for something else if I am ever prescribed this medication in the future.

    I suffer from chronic sinus infections. I am currently fighting a severe sinus and lung infection. In the past I always had severe diarrhea with this medication.

I find this drug works well but the diarrhea and stomach pain are a problem IF it's not taken with a high quality probiotic.
