Q.

Son with tonisillitis

Good Day

My 13 month old son was diagnosed with tonisllitis on Sunday. The doctor prescribed Augmentim ES 600 and he stopped having fever on Tuesday. Since yesterday al he does is just sleep. He also refused to eat.

What could be the problem?

I am not happy with this story and you should have your son seen again by his doctor. Children with meningitis become drowsy and refuse to eat, so this illness must be excluded in particular.

Hi Mommy,

My daughter is 11 months and was also put onto Augementim... Its a strong, harsh antibiotic... she broke out in a rash yesterday! Ive changed to Orelox cause she was also sleepy and miserable!
