Ear Home > Additional Information on Augmentin ES

How Should This Medication Be Stored?

Augmentin ES (once mixed by your pharmacist) must be stored under refrigeration and must be used or discarded within 10 days of mixing. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If My Child Misses a Dose?

If your child misses a dose, have him or her take the missed dose as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, simply skip the missed dose and continue with the regular schedule. Do not have your child take a double dose. Because this medication is an antibiotic, it is important to try not to miss any doses.
