If you have ever been prescribed antibiotics for a bacterial infection, you have probably been given amoxicillin or Augmentin (amoxicillin clavulanate) at one time or another. If your child has ever needed antibiotics, both may have been prescribed. Amoxicillin is often the first antibiotic prescribed for common infections like ear infections and strep throat. It is typically used in young children because it is effective against many common childhood bacterial infections and doesn't have many severe side effects. By adding a beta-lactamase blocker to amoxicillin, Augmentin is able to overcome resistance to harder-to-treat bacteria, broadening the spectrum of infections it can treat. It is for this reason that Augmentin is referred to as a broad-spectrum antibiotic. If you have an infection and don't necessarily know which bacteria is causing it, it may seem to make sense to use an antibiotic that would kill the most bugs. Another, even more pressing concern is that using broad spectrum antibiotics can lead to antibiotic resistance.
