If you or someone in your family has experienced a serious side effect to a health product, you are encouraged to report the experience to your health care professional (e.g. physician, pharmacist). You could also complete a copy of the side effect reporting form or report your side effect to FDA.

Side effects reports are analyzed to discover potential health product safety signals. Some important reactions may take an extremely long time to develop or occur infrequently. Continued monitoring of adverse reactions is thus essential to maintain a comprehensive safety and effectiveness profile of health products.

Augmentine Side Effects Reported to FDA

The following Augmentine reports list potential signals of serious risks and new safety information that were identified using the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS).
FAERS is a database that contains information on adverse event and medication errors reports submitted to FDA by healthcare professionals (such as physicians, pharmacists, nurses and others), consumers (such as patients, family members, layers and others) and manufacturers.

The appearance of Augmentine on this list does not mean that FDA has concluded that the drug has the listed risk. It means that FDA has identified a potential safety issue, but it does not mean that FDA has found a causal relationship between the drug and the listed risk.
Pulmonary Embolism, Jugular Vein Thrombosis
This is a report of a 59-year-old male patient (weight: NA) from FRANCE, suffering from the following symptoms/conditions: NA, who was treated with Augmentine (augmentine) (dosage: NA, start time: Oct 27, 2011), combined with:
  • Tachosil (1 Sponge 9.5 Cm X 4.8 Cm)
  • Zolpidem Tartrate
  • Haldol (haloperidol Decanoate) (2 Milligram/milliliters)
  • Acetaminophen
  • Amlor (amlodipne Besilate)
and developed a serious reaction and side effect(s). The consumer presented with:
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Jugular Vein Thrombosis
which developed after the beginning of treatment. This case can indicate the possible existence of increased vulnerability to Augmentine (augmentine) treatment in male patients, resulting in pulmonary embolism side effect.

Deep Vein Thrombosis
This report suggests a potential Augmentine /00852501/ Deep Vein Thrombosis side effect(s) that can have serious consequences. A female patient (weight: NA) from SPAIN was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: cellulitis,pain and used Augmentine /00852501/ (dosage: 3 Df, Qd) starting Jul 16, 2011. Soon after starting Augmentine /00852501/ the patient began experiencing various side effects, including:
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis
Drugs used concurrently:
  • Acetaminophen (3 Df, Qd)
  • Nolotil (3 Df, Qd)
  • Diazepan (1 Df, Qd)
  • Enoxaparin Sodium (1 Df, Bid)
  • Norvasc (1 Df, Qd)
  • Forteo (20 Ug, Qd)
  • Omeprazole (1 Df, Qd)
Although Augmentine /00852501/ demonstrated significant improvements in a number of clinically relevant cases, troublesome symptoms, such as deep vein thrombosis, may still occur.

Oedema, Pruritus
This Oedema, Pruritus problem was reported by a consumer or non-health professional from SPAIN. A 75-year-old male patient (weight: NA) was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: oral infection. On Jun 26, 2007 this consumer started treatment with Augmentine (oral) (dosage: NA). The following drugs were being taken at the same time: NA. When commencing Augmentine (oral), the patient experienced the following unwanted symptoms/side effects:
  • Oedema
  • Pruritus
Although all drugs are carefully tested before they are licensed for use, they carry side effect risks. Some side effects, such as oedema, may become evident only after a product is in use by the general population.

Alanine Aminotransferase Increased, Aspartate Aminotransferase Increased, Blood Bilirubin Increased, Blood Phosphorus Increased, Cholestasis
This is a report of a 34-year-old male patient (weight: NA) from SWITZERLAND. The patient developed the following symptoms/conditions: prophylaxis and was treated with Augmentine (oral) (dosage: NA) starting Jan 23, 2008. Concurrently used drugs: NA.Soon after that, the consumer experienced the following side effects:
  • Alanine Aminotransferase Increased
  • Aspartate Aminotransferase Increased
  • Blood Bilirubin Increased
  • Blood Phosphorus Increased
