The Augmentin 375 (PO TDS, meaning one tablet per mouth 3 times a day) is an short term antibiotic - Probably for an acute infection that is present right now. It is not part of the TB treatment, and hopefully she received all her TB medication at the hospital. The Augmentin is available at any pharmacy, but will require a prescription - Did BARA gave her the prescription so that she can have it privately filled?

Thanks so much information, Since she has her original prescription, I will go on Sat at Springbok Pharmacy to get it and thanks to explain since I was thinking that the other medication wont work if that other one its not there. Again THANKS.
