I am on day six of the generic 875 2x daily. I honestly thought I was going crazy and it wasn't until I read other reviews on this site that I realized I was having a reaction. Started about day 4 with stomach pains and diarrhea. Day 5 the anxiety, hot flashes, sleepless night, skin flushing, exhaustion, chills and irregular heart beats started. Today is day 6 and I am done. Heading back to th ... Show Full Comment

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 now take it with a probiotic called Florastor. It is expensive but worth it. 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.

Got meds, 875mg, twice/day. By Wed/Thurs early morn (2am) was in emergency room with elevated BP (281/147). My normal BP is 97/57. The pressure was unbelievable! No heart attack-like symptoms. After a few hours of observation went home & was fine from then on. Dr. said it was a reaction from medication.

Comment:
Augmentin for me? NEVER AGAIN. Took one pill at 10:30 pm and by 12:30 am I was up vomiting. That went on every hour for the rest of the night. I have taken straight Amoxicillin in the past with no adverse effects, so it must have been the Clavulanic Acid in Augmentin.
