Klavocin review





Klavocin, like most antibiotic medicines, can cause a patient to have diarrhea, which could indicate a new infection. Patients should immediately notify a doctor especially if their bowel is watery or has blood in it. Never use a medicament to control the diarrhea unless prescribed by your doctor. Klavocin belongs to a group of antibiotics called penicillin. When combined with Amoxicillin, Klavocin fights bacteria that cause various infections in the body.

Klavocin is available under the brand name Augmentin which comes in tablet and liquid forms. It is for patients who are undergoing treatment for various infections such as sinusitis, urinary tract infections, pneumonia, bronchitis, ear infections, and skin infections. It can be taken by adults and children. Klavocin is not effective in treating common infections like the flu or colds.

Adults are often prescribed 500 milligrams of Klavocin every 12 hours, or 250 milligrams every 8 hours. For more severe cases of infections, particularly in the respiratory tract, the dose can be increased to 875 milligrams every 12 hours, or 500 milligrams every 8 hours.

Patients who have weakened renal function are not required to have a reduction in dose unless their injury is serious. Usually, seriously injured patients are not able to take 875 milligrams of Klavocin.

Patients with hemodialysis are required to have at least 250 milligrams of Klavocin depending on the seriousness of the infection. Patients are required to take additional doses during and after dialysis. Children who weigh more than 80 lbs should be given doses similar to adults.

Klavocin can be taken even if the patient has an empty stomach. However, for best results it is advised that the patient take Klavocin prior to a meal. This will also lessen the chances of a gastrointestinal problem.

The tablet should be taken whole; however, the chewable tablet should be chewed first and never swallowed whole. The extended-release tablet should be swallowed whole or broken into halves, but never chewed. The liquid form should be shaken first before taking it.

Klavocin must be taken at equal intervals as prescribed by your doctor. Taking the medicament regularly allows the patient to get the most benefits from Klavocin.

If the patient misses a dose, they should take it immediately. If the next dose is almost due, it is recommended that the patient skip the missed dose and then proceed to take their next scheduled dose. Do not take another medicine to make up for a missed dose.

Klavocin can result to side effects, although the chances are pretty low. The less serious side effects include difficulty in breathing, hives, and swelling of the face, lips, and throat. More serious side effects include pyrexia, stomach pain, lack of appetite, and yellowing of the eyes or skin.

Patients should consult a doctor immediately in case any of these side effects become apparent or persist.

Klavocin, like most antibiotic medicines, can cause a patient to have diarrhea, which could indicate a new infection. Patients should immediately notify a doctor especially if their bowel is watery or has blood in it. Never use a medicament to control the diarrhea unless prescribed by your doctor.

Patients who have kidney or liver disease should inform their physician about their condition prior to taking Klavocin. These conditions can prevent a patient from taking Klavocin or can require an adjustment in the dose.
