User avatar Hello,Augumentin contains amoxycillin and clavulanic acid both penicillin derivatives.These do not bind much to our proteins in the blood and excreted.The dosage taken might evoke vomiting,abdominal pains in some.After discontinuing the medication get treated symptomatically.Do go to your doctor to rule out crystalluria which could occur in some with a overdose.Take plenty of fluids to avoid the same.Patients who have renal or hepatic problems need careful monitoring.In your sisters case i guess she is pretty fine now.Best wishes.
