Is Augmentin appropriate for a head cold? I have had

Patient : Is Augmentin appropriate for a head cold? I have had a cold that has got progressively worse over the last week. I cannot afford to see my doctor nor can I afford to miss work. I am not running a fever but I am getting chills and then also feeling way hot. I have the antibiotic augmentin on hand from when I had an infection previously, if I took this drug will it help speed up my recovery? I am desperate to feel better
