Augmentin is amoxicillin combined with clavulanate potassium. Amoxicillin is an antibiotic related to penicillin. It is often the first-line treatment for common bacterial infections in the throat and ear. Clavulanate potassium is a beta-lactamase, a medicine that makes amoxicillin more effective.

Augmentin works by inhibiting the bacteria from forming their cell wall. This allows the formation of holes in the cell wall thus killing the bacteria and clears up the infection.
