December 2, 2018 | By More

AUGMENTIN ES 600 should be taken every 12 hours with a meal or snack to reduce the possibility of gastrointestinal upset. If diarrhea develops and is severe or lasts more than 2 or 3 days, call your doctor.

Keep suspension refrigerated. Shake well before using. When dosing a child with thesuspension (liquid) of AUGMENTIN ES 600, use a dosing spoon or medicine dropper.

Be sure to rinse the spoon or dropper after each use. Bottles of suspension of AUGMENTIN ES 600 may contain NDA 50-755/S-014 more liquid than required.

Follow your doctor’s instructions about the amount to use and the days of treatment your child requires. Discard any unused medicine.Patients should be counseled that antibacterial drugs, including AUGMENTIN ES-600, should only be used to treat bacterial infections. They do not treat viral infections (e.g., the common cold).

When AUGMENTIN ES 600 is prescribed to treat a bacterial infection, patients should be told that although it is common to feel better early in the course of therapy, the medication should be taken exactly as directed. Skipping doses or not completing the full course of therapy may: (1) decrease theeffectiveness of the immediate treatment, and (2) increase the likelihood that bacteria will develop resistance and will not be treatable by AUGMENTIN ES 600 or other antibacterial drugs in the future.

Phenylketonurics: Each 5 mL of the 600 mg/5 mL suspension of AUGMENTIN ES 600 contains 7 mg phenylalanine.

Drug Interactions: Probenecid decreases the renal tubular secretion of amoxicillin. Concurrent use with AUGMENTIN ES 600 may result in increased and prolonged blood levels of amoxicillin.Co-administration of probenecid cannot be recommended.

The concurrent administration of allopurinol and ampicillin increases substantially the incidence of rashes in patients receiving both drugs as compared to patients receiving ampicillin alone.It is not known whether this potentiation of ampicillin rashes is due to allopurinol or the hyperuricemia present in these patients.

There are no data with AUGMENTIN ES 600 and allopurinol administered concurrently. In common with other broad-spectrum antibiotics, amoxicillin/clavulanate may reduce the efficacy of oral contraceptives.
