Hey, now a days amoxyclav is given which is combination of amoxicillin which belongs to penicillin group along with clavulonic acid which increases potency of amoxicillin , penicillin is basic drug  ,had chances of allergy ,over period of time newer drugs with new varied pharmacokinetics are manufactured by pharmaceutical companies .
