Amox tr-k clv 875-125 is Amoxicillin 875 mg, with Potassium Clavulanate 125 mg, and is a member of the penicillin group. It only works if the cough is caused by a bacterial infection, such as bronchitis, pneumonia, etc., and will not work on illnessess caused by a virus (cold, flu, etc.). If you have been prescribed this drug, you need to take ALL of it.

If you take it only until you begin to feel better and then stop the medication too soon, the infection can come back worse than it was in the first place. The reason for this is that antibiotics kill the weaker bacteria first, and if you stop taking it, then it is the stronger bacteria that survive. So then you can get sicker than before, because it is the stronger bacteria that is now multiplying in your body, and may now be resistant to the original antibiotic.

The reason that you are coughing out blood when you cough hard is because when you cough hard, you damge the veins in your lungs which release blood, and as the blood needs to gos somewhere it goes out your mouth when you cough.
