Special Precautions
Augpac: Transient hepatitis and cholestatic jaundice has been reported, hence, amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium should be used with caution in patients with evidence of hepatic dysfunction.
Serious and occasionally fatal hypersensitivity (anaphylactic) reactions have been reported in patients on penicillin therapy. Although anaphylaxis is more frequent following parenteral therapy, it has occurred in patients on oral penicillins. These reactions are more likely to occur in individuals with a history of penicillin hypersensitivity and/or a history of sensitivity to multiple allergens. There have been reports of individuals with a history of penicillin hypersensitivity who have experienced severe reactions when treated with cephalosporins.
Before initiating therapy with any penicillin, careful inquiry should be made concerning previous hypersensitivity reactions to penicillins, cephalosporins or other allergens. If an allergic reaction occurs, amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium should be discontinued and the appropriate therapy instituted: Adrenaline, corticosteroids and antihistamines.
Effects on the Ability to Drive or Operate Machinery: Patients experiencing dizziness or other central nervous disturbances, including visual disturbances, should not drive or operate machinery.
