Discussions that mention augmentin

Children's Health board

My son has had a cough for about 2 months. He is now on his third round of antibiotic. Augmentin for 20 days. This seems like an awful long time. I know it is strong as well. Just concerned about the side affects. First antibiotic was amyoxicillian. Then Zithromax for 5 days, off for 5 days then on again for 5 days along with antihistimine. He was tested yesterday for asthma and allergies. Both negative. He has a constant, dry cough. Not bringing anything up. Does not cough when he sleeps, only when awake. Nothing seems to help. I am very frustrated. He is having a chest x - ray and ct scan of his sinuses in a few weeks.
