About this item
Augmentin is an antibiotic medication that combines amoxicillin and clavulanic acid. The combination works to treat various bacterial infections by preventing bacteria from building their cell walls, thus killing them. Clavulanic acid acts as a beta-lactamase inhibitor, helping prevent certain bacteria from becoming resistant to amoxicillin. It's often used to treat infections of the skin, ear, sinus, respiratory tract, urinary tract, and other areas.
