My lung Doctor called me in some augmentin because I have been coughing up thick yellow mucus. I just don't know if I can take it on treatment. Does anyone know??

No problem (unless you're allergic to penicillin type antibiotics). It's just amoxocillin with an enzyme 'kicker' to make it more effective.

My kids always got diarrhea on augmentin. I hope your tummy is doing well. Did he test your sputum for a bacterial infection? I wouldn't take an antibiotic called in without being sure I had one.
Feel better. (*^o^*)
