Augmentin Overdose

My son, who is 26 month old now, got a flu and kept coughing few days ago. We brought him to the doctor and the doctor gave him anti-biotic (Augmentin 457mg/5ml). The doctor suggested to take it 2.5ml twice a day before meals for 7 days. Unfortunately, my helper took it wrongly and kept giving 5ml to my son everytime. In orther words, my son had taken 10ml of Augmentin over last 3 days... My son looks fine but I'm worrying that it may have any side-effect. Can you please advise?
Notwithstanding the indication for the Augmentin, the gross overdose of this antibiotics may have resulted in diarrhoea or other gastrointestinal upset already. Most children can handle this amount of Augmentin without other severe complications, so do not overworry, just be more careful with medicine, you may not be as lucky next time.
