My son has been on augmentin for 4 weeks per Dr. K in Chicago. He is doing better a little better, reading again, less urinery frequency. We are scheduled to go back to Chicago for IVIG(first time) in a month. Dr. K won't let my son stay on augmentin until the IVIG. He says we need to stop it for 3 weeks and then go back on it a week before IVIG. I am so scared because I told Dr. K that any little change, even the time of medicine sets us back. I know if we stop augmentin we will go back to full blown pandas!! My son doesn't want to live then! I am so confused. Dr. K says he won't allow us to stay on augmentin due to long term side effects of it. My son has only been on it for 4 weeks and I was only asking for 3 more until we come for IVIG! Now i am trying to brace myself for full blown pandas. I will need to cancel IVIG in Chicago cause i won't be able to get my son on the plane. We were seeing a little light at the end of the tunnel. I don't understand! Some doctors say you need a few months to see progress. I am now told to stop augmentin. When i even gave my son the medicine a half hour later one day we escalated for 3 weeks. Tonight is the last dose i have and i know in a few days we will be back to ! I begged dr. K for just a few more weeks. Stopping the augmentin will set us back and then starting it again in 3 weeks doesn't make sense to me!! I am so scared and terrified!!! Full blown pandas for us included basically every symptom!! Any advice!!!
