Feedback:
When combined with a penicillin, the beta-lactamase inhibitor protects the penicillin from destruction by the enzymes and extends the penicillin's spectrum of antimicrobial activity. Augmentin does not extend the spectrum of beta-lactamase inhibitor. Augmentin does not decrease the side effects of high-dose penicillin. Augmentin does not increase the absorption of penicillin.
