So how long should Augmentin be taken and in what dosage if infected by Lyme and coinfections?
I don't think it's standard - I haven't seen it mentioned on hear or anyone I've personally talked to.
From the guidelines:
*Augmentin- Standard Augmentin cannot exceed three tablets daily due to the
clavulanate, thus is given with amoxicillin, so that the total dose of the amoxicillin component is as listed above for amoxicillin. This combination can be effective when Bb beta lactamase is felt to be significant.
*Augmentin XR 1000- This is a time-release formulation and thus is a better choice than standard Augmentin.
Dose- 1000 mg q 8 h, to 2000 mg q 12 h based on blood levels
