The popular antibiotic (Augmentin) is a broad spectrum antibiotic that is often used to treat upper and lower respiratory infections that manifest as sore throats and coughs.
According to the poisons board, the fake tablets have a red blister pack and the stated manufacturer is Smith Kline Beecham Limited instead of the genuine manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).
The antibiotic is in high demand currently as the respiratory infections are common die to the chilly weather and rains being experienced all over the country.
