      Klacid with the main antibiotic ingredient Clarithromycin was prescribed for lung infection for my toddler son. The pediatrician suspected lung infection due to high body temperature and phlegm, cough and runny nose. It is a chalky suspension which is white in colour with granules similar to powdered chalk. This antibiotic

      need not be refrigerated. It comes in a white plastic container.

      Dosage: The dosage of antibiotic is 5 ml 2 times a day. It takes about 5 days for antibiotic to complete.

      Effectiveness: The temperature drop was gradual.It took about 1 day and more for all symptoms to subside. Other medications like ...

      • Ibrufen and medicines for phlegm and cough were also prescribed.

        Side effects: Loose stools for 2 days towards the end of medication.

        Stomach discomfort and lack of appetite as part of fever. It has been about 2 days since I stopped feeding this antibiotic. Still the appetite of my child

        is not back. He just takes few fluids like milk and juice.

        Feeding antibiotic: My son shows lack of interest in taking this medication though it is easy to feed him with medications. The doctor asked me to mix with fruit juice to feed in case of hesitation.

        Manufacturer: It is manufactured by Abbott, Italy.

    alia torbey says :

    do augmentin antibiotic and klacid antibiotic have the same composition or ingredients ?

    Galega says :

    Both augmentin and Klacid are antibiotics. However, the ingredients are different.

    Augmentin is a penicillin antibiotic. Augmentin contains a combination of amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium.

    Klacid is Clarithromycin.
