What is Augmentin?

Augmentin is a penicillin antibiotic.

Augmentin contains a combination of Augmentin and Clavulanate potassium (Augmentin). Augmentin is an antibiotic in a group of drugs called penicillins. Augmentin fights bacteria in the body.

Clavulanate potassium (Augmentin) is a form of clavulanic acid, which is similar to penicillin. Clavulanate potassium (Augmentin) fights bacteria that is often resistant to penicillins and other antibiotics.

Augmentin is used to treat many different infections caused by bacteria, such as sinusitis, pneumonia, ear infections, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, and infections of the skin.

Augmentin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Augmentin indications

sponsored

Augmentin is indicated in the treatment of infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated organisms in the conditions listed below:

Lower Respiratory Tract Infections

− caused by β-lactamase−producing strains of H. influenzae and M. catarrhalis.

Otitis Media

− caused by β-lactamase−producing strains of H. influenzae and M. catarrhalis.

Sinusitis

− caused by β-lactamase−producing strains of H. influenzae and M. catarrhalis.

Skin and Skin Structure Infections

− caused by β-lactamase−producing strains of S. aureus, E. coli, and Klebsiella spp.

Urinary Tract Infections

− caused by β-lactamase−producing strains of E. coli, Klebsiella spp., and Enterobacter spp.

While Augmentin is indicated only for the conditions listed above, infections caused by ampicillin-susceptible organisms are also amenable to treatment with Augmentin due to its Augmentin content; therefore, mixed infections caused by ampicillin-susceptible organisms and β-lactamase−producing organisms susceptible to Augmentin should not require the addition of another antibiotic. Because Augmentin has greater in vitro activity against S. pneumoniae than does ampicillin or penicillin, the majority of S. pneumoniae strains with intermediate susceptibility to ampicillin or penicillin are fully susceptible to Augmentin and Augmentin.

To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Augmentin and other antibacterial drugs, Augmentin should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy.

Bacteriological studies, to determine the causative organisms and their susceptibility to Augmentin, should be performed together with any indicated surgical procedures.

How should I use Augmentin?

Use Augmentin as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Augmentin.

Augmentin dosage

sponsored

Since both the 250-mg and 500-mg tablets of Augmentin contain the same amount of clavulanic acid (125 mg, as the potassium salt), two 250-mg tablets of Augmentin are not equivalent to one 500-mg tablet of Augmentin; therefore, two 250-mg tablets of Augmentin should not be substituted for one 500-mg tablet of Augmentin.

Dosage:

Adults:

The usual adult dose is one 500-mg tablet of Augmentin every 12 hours or one 250-mg tablet of Augmentin every 8 hours. For more severe infections and infections of the respiratory tract, the dose should be one 875-mg tablet of Augmentin every 12 hours or one 500-mg tablet of Augmentin every 8 hours.

Patients with impaired renal function do not generally require a reduction in dose unless the impairment is severe. Severely impaired patients with a glomerular filtration rate of <30 mL/min. should not receive the 875-mg tablet. Patients with a glomerular filtration rate of 10 to 30 mL/min. should receive 500 mg or 250 mg every 12 hours, depending on the severity of the infection. Patients with a less than 10 mL/min. glomerular filtration rate should receive 500 mg or 250 mg every 24 hours, depending on severity of the infection.

Hemodialysis patients should receive 500 mg or 250 mg every 24 hours, depending on severity of the infection. They should receive an additional dose both during and at the end of dialysis.

Hepatically impaired patients should be dosed with caution and hepatic function monitored at regular intervals.

Pediatric Patients:

Pediatric patients weighing 40 kg or more should be dosed according to the adult recommendations.

Due to the different Augmentin to clavulanic acid ratios in the 250-mg tablet of Augmentin (250/125) versus the 250-mg chewable tablet of Augmentin (250/62.5), the 250-mg tablet of Augmentin should not be used until the pediatric patient weighs at least 40 kg or more.

Administration:

Augmentin may be taken without regard to meals; however, absorption of Clavulanate potassium (Augmentin) is enhanced when Augmentin is administered at the start of a meal. To minimize the potential for gastrointestinal intolerance, Augmentin should be taken at the start of a meal.

Augmentin interactions

See also:
What other drugs will affect Augmentin?

Concomitant use of probenecid is not recommended. Probenecid decreases the renal tubular secretion of Augmentin. Concomitant use with Augmentin may result in increased and prolonged blood levels of Augmentin but not of clavulanate.

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

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

The presence of clavulanic acid in Augmentin may cause a non-specific binding of IgG and albumin by red cell membranes leading to a false positive Coombs test.

In the literature there are rare cases of increased international normalised ratio in patients maintained on acenocoumarol or warfarin and prescribed a course of Augmentin. If co-administration is necessary, the prothrombin time or international normalised ratio should be carefully monitored with the addition or withdrawal of Augmentin.

In patients receiving mycophenolate mofetil, reduction in pre-dose concentration of the active metabolite mycophenolic acid of approximately 50% has been reported following commencement of oral Augmentin plus clavulanic acid. The change in pre-dose level may not accurately represent changes in overall MPA exposure.

Incompatibilities: Tablet/Suspension: None Known.

Injection: Augmentin IV should not be mixed with blood products, other proteinaceous fluids eg, protein hydrolysates or with intravenous lipid emulsions.

If Augmentin is prescribed concurrently with an aminoglycoside, the antibiotics should not be mixed in the syringe, intravenous fluid container or giving set because loss of activity of the aminoglycoside can occur under these conditions.

Augmentin side effects

What are the possible side effects of Augmentin?

The following are discussed in more detail in other sections of the labeling:

Clinical Trial Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

The most frequently reported adverse reactions were diarrhea/loose stools (9%), nausea (3%), skin rashes and urticaria (3%), vomiting (1%) and vaginitis (1%). Less than 3% of patients discontinued therapy because of drug related adverse reactions. The overall incidence of adverse reactions, and in particular diarrhea, increased with the higher recommended dose. Other less frequently reported adverse reactions (<1%) include: Abdominal discomfort, flatulence, and headache.

In pediatric patients (aged 2 months to 12 years), 1 US/Canadian clinical trial was conducted which compared 45/6.4 mg/kg/day (divided every 12 hours) of AUGMENTIN for 10 days versus 40/10 mg/kg/day (divided every 8 hours) of AUGMENTIN for 10 days in the treatment of acute otitis media. A total of 575 patients were enrolled, and only the suspension formulations were used in this trial. Overall, the adverse reactions seen were comparable to that noted above; however, there were differences in the rates of diarrhea, skin rashes/urticaria, and diaper area rashes.

Postmarketing Experience

In addition to adverse reactions reported from clinical trials, the following have been identified during postmarketing use of AUGMENTIN. Because they are reported voluntarily from a population of unknown size, estimates of frequency cannot be made. These events have been chosen for inclusion due to a combination of their seriousness, frequency of reporting, or potential causal connection to AUGMENTIN.

Gastrointestinal

Indigestion, gastritis, stomatitis, glossitis, black “hairy” tongue, mucocutaneous candidiasis, enterocolitis, and hemorrhagic/pseudomembranous colitis. Onset of pseudomembranous colitis symptoms may occur during or after antibiotic treatment.

Hypersensitivity Reactions

Pruritus, angioedema, serum sickness–like reactions (urticaria or skin rash accompanied by arthritis, arthralgia, myalgia, and frequently fever), erythema multiforme, Stevens Johnson syndrome, acute generalized exanthematouspustulosis, hypersensitivity vasculitis, and cases of exfoliative dermatitis (including toxic epidermal necrolysis) have been reported.

Liver

Hepatic dysfunction, including hepatitis and cholestatic jaundice, increases in serum transaminases (AST and/or ALT), serum bilirubin, and/or alkaline phosphatase, has been reported with AUGMENTIN. It has been reported more commonly in the elderly, in males, or in patients on prolonged treatment. The histologic findings on liver biopsy have consisted of predominantly cholestatic, treatment. The histologic findings on liver biopsy have consisted of predominantly cholestatic, hepatocellular, or mixed cholestatic hepatocellular changes. The onset of signs/symptoms of hepatic dysfunction may occur during or several weeks after therapy has been discontinued. The hepatic dysfunction, which may be severe, is usually reversible. Deaths have been reported.

Renal

Interstitial nephritis, hematuria, and crystalluria have been reported.

Hemic And Lymphatic Systems

Anemia, including hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, thrombocytopenic purpura, eosinophilia, leukopenia, and agranulocytosishave been reported. These reactions are usually reversible on discontinuation of therapy and are believed to be hypersensitivity phenomena. Thrombocytosis was noted in less than 1% of the patients treated with AUGMENTIN. There have been reports of increased prothrombin time in patients receiving AUGMENTIN and anticoagulant therapy concomitantly.

Central Nervous System

Agitation, anxiety, behavioral changes, confusion, convulsions, dizziness, insomnia, and reversible hyperactivity have been reported.

Miscellaneous

Tooth discoloration (brown, yellow, or gray staining) has been reported. Most reports occurred in pediatric patients. Discoloration was reduced or eliminated with brushing or dental cleaning in most cases.
