  1. Hi. I am new to this forum. My name is Stacey and my son is 5 years old and was diagnosed with pandas in July of this year. We think it is strep induced as his strep was positive and myco and lyme were negative. He improved about 85% on Keflex. He was on it for 2 1/2 months and Dr. T. wanted to switch to Augmentin (liquid) to see if we could get even more improvement. I had him on 3 days of Augmentin at 500 mg daily (250 twice a day) and he weighs 42 lbs. Does that seem like the right dose or too low? The reason I ask is because for the three days that I had him on it, he did worse. His anxieties came back again, having nightmares and waking up at 4 to run into our room and needing all the lights on when going to bed again, etc. His schoolwork was worse and he started scribbling on his work to ruin it. (we homeschool and he was not doing that on keflex) I just wonder if I gave Augmentin enough time or if the dose was too low? I keep hearing alot of people have good success with it and I want to make sure I gave it a fair shot. It was so hard to see him be so afraid again of things. Back on the Keflex, and those went away right away. His ocd is up a little, though, now on the keflex. Dr. T hasn't returned my e-mails yet. Thanks! Stacey
