The abdominal discomfort you are feeling could be due to the antibiotic ,that is, augmentin. It is a strong antibiotic. It is known to cause abdominal discomfort, gastritis, loose stools. So it is better to take an probiotic and ppi along with it. You can take pantoprazole 40mg once in the morning, half hour before your breakfast. And if you start experiencing loose stools then take any probiotic after you breakfast and dinner. If the abdominal discomfort doesn't subside even after two days, then Consult a physician regarding it for further evaluation.
