Before initiating therapy with Co-Amoxiclav, careful enquiry should be made concerning previous hypersensitivity reactions to penicillins, cephalosporins, or other allergens.
Serious and occasionally fatal hypersensitivity reactions (including anaphylactoid and severe cutaneous adverse reactions) have been reported in patients on penicillin therapy. These reactions are more likely to occur in individuals with a history of penicillin hypersensitivity.
Prolonged use may also occasionally result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms.
In patients with renal impairment, Co-Amoxiclav dosage should be adjusted as recommended.
