Prediction and prevention of lobar pneumonia

The prognosis of lobar pneumonia is determined by the presence of risk factors for the development of complications (children under 5 years of age and the elderly, people with severe concomitant diseases, decreased immunity, bacteremia, etc.). The outcome is favorable with timely access to a pulmonologist, adequate therapy, as well as in young patients without concomitant pathology.

Prevention measures for lobar pneumonia can include hardening, physical activity, prevention of hypothermia and stress, rehabilitation of foci of chronic infection.

Analogues of the drug

In case of adverse reactions of the body to the substances contained in the preparation, it should be replaced by the following analogues:

  • Panklav.
  • Flemoklav.
  • Solutab.
  • Verklav.
  • Foraclav.
  • Clamosar.
  • Klava.
  • Abiklav.

Children's Augmentin is intended for the treatment of infectious diseases. Before using the drug, it is important to consult with your doctor and exclude the side effect of the body on the substances contained in the medicine.

Interaction with other drugs

The simultaneous use of the drug Augmentin ® and probenecid is not recommended. Probenecid reduces the tubular secretion of amoxicillin, and therefore, the simultaneous use of the drug Augmentin ® and probenecid can lead to an increase and persistence in the blood concentration of amoxicillin, but not clavulanic acid.

The simultaneous use of allopurinol and amoxicillin may increase the risk of skin allergic reactions. Currently, there is no data in the literature on the simultaneous use of a combination of amoxicillin with clavulanic acid and allopurinol. Penicillins can slow the elimination of methotrexate from the body by inhibiting its tubular secretion, so the simultaneous use of Augmentin and methotrexate may increase the toxicity of methotrexate.

Like other antibacterial drugs, Augmentin ® can affect the intestinal microflora, leading to a decrease in the absorption of estrogen from the gastrointestinal tract and a decrease in the effectiveness of combined oral contraceptives.

The literature describes rare cases of an increase in the international normalized ratio (INR) in patients with the combined use of acenocumarol or warfarin and amoxicillin. If it is necessary to simultaneously prescribe Augmentin ® with anticoagulants, prothrombin time or INR should be carefully monitored when prescribing or canceling Augmentin ®) dose adjustment of anticoagulants for oral administration may be required.

In patients receiving mycophenolate mofetil, after the start of the use of the combination of amoxicillin with clavulanic acid, a decrease in the concentration of the active metabolite, mycophenolic acid, was observed before taking the next dose of the drug by about 50%. Changes in this concentration may not accurately reflect the general changes in mycophenolic acid exposure.
