At time I was nearly tearing my skin off by day 5. Thinking back it happened last time I had to take Amoxillillin too. One week on my face is still dry and very itchy F 45 5 days

 1  Double Ear Infection Severe heart palpitations! Increased heart rate, nauseated (even though I took it with food), increased body temperatured, chills, hot flashes, light sensitivity, panic attacks, headache, dizziness, lethargic (extremely tired could not get out of bed or move), malaise (over all sickness) bodyaches, light sensitivity, and I could not walk temporary paralysis etc. I would NEVER take this medication again, it is to harsh for the body system. Amoxicillin (in my opinion) does more harm than good!!! F 32 10 days

 4  strep throat/green tongue Not a fair review seeing as I only took this starting today. I have 10 days to go. Started off at the hospital through an iv. Since I have been released from hospital, no side effects other than abnormal sweating. Wouldn't call it extreme but I definitely wouldn't say it is normal, I am not even hot. Other than that I feel fine, for now F 24 1 days

 4  Infected tooth/gum Slight headache, slight feeling of brain fog, queasiness, wakeful and not being able to have deep sleep I tried to evaluate my symptoms and decide which ones were caused by amoxicillin and which ones were caused by a physical malady. I narrowed it down to the ones I listed because I also have sinus problems that make me feel really spaced out and also give me facial pain. Seems many here have an anxiety problem, which I do as well. is my anxiety worse on this large dose? Not really. I think the tiredness I feel from the amoxicillin actually makes me feel calmer. However, I do feel slightly more emotional than usual. Just 1 more day on the drug then I'll see how I feel. It has a very short half life so I won't have to wait long. M 66 10 days

 1  Chest infection EXTREME SWEATING. FELT RUNDOWN. NO MOTIVATION. THE DEVILíS DRUG - AMOXICILLIN! Have never previously used this medication. Chest infection complicated everything. I have asthma and was prescribed both Amoxicillin along with Prednisone. Took me almost eight (8) years to acclimate my body to the heat in the Southwest and ten (10) days to change my entire body chemistry! Taking this was bad, real bad. Sweat while sleeping or while outdoors at temps at just 65 degrees. Constantly waking up in a pool of sweat. Off medication and these same symptoms continue! M 60 10 days

 3  Strep throat Sweated through my pajamas first night (2 875mg pills were first dose). Sore throat felt much better after 24 hrs but at abt less than 2 days a weird rash showed up on my breast area. Started feeling "out of it" a few days in and one night couldn't fall asleep. Now at almost day 5 the rash has moved to my upper arms and legs. That dizzy weird feeling still remains. Now I'm connecting it to the side effects I've been reading here. My dermatologist suggested stopping meds and taking Zyrtec. Just not sure if I'm going on a diff antibiotic since I'm only at day 5 of 10... Glad my throat feels better though. F 44 10 days

 1  Strep Throat My mother rushed me to urgent care when she realized that my tonsils were completely swollen and white. They tested me for mono and strep but both came out negative. Still, they sent me home with amoxicillin. The pills were too big to swallow so I had to crush them and put it in jello. Two pills a day for ten days. Every time I took the pill my body ached and I had a fever, which got up to 103 degrees. At night I would wake up every hour having a panic attack and I would be soaking wet from sweat. After 5 days of taking the pill, I stopped because I was forced to babysit. My throat immediately cleared up and I started to feel better again. Now, after 5 days of not taking the pill I have developed a rash all over my body (except for my face). It's starting to go away slowly but it itches and it looks disgusting. I am never taking amoxicillin again after this experience. F 18 5 days

 3  i have an absess on my gum into jaw I started taking it yesterday as dentist said I had the start of an abscess although was not noticiable. Dentist gave me 21 500mg capsuels to be took until course is finished. By last night I was sweating hot then cold muscle and tummy aches like coming down with flu and my jaw swelled up like a tennis ball then noticed a whitish lump running across two teeth this was within ten hours of taking it. I ended throwing up to point it strained my abscess bringing infection to surface on gum and was very painful I had no choice but to sterilize a needle pop and drain was not very nice. Today I've continued with amoxci woke up drenched from sweat but no real bad pain unless i touch tennis ball on outside of face. I've had over the top sweats hot and cold feel like I'm down with full blowen flu have headache muscle and tummy aches and look terrible. I've lost my appetite and just generally feel horrible tooth aches gone on inside but didn't expect it to bring on flu like symptoms. Does anybody know why its made me feel like this? Quite worried.

 1  Throat infection I felt extremely dizzy, lightheaded and nauseous. I just didn't want to do anything at all. It was horrible because I'm in college and I have class and I can't think straight with this medicine. I also can't sleep at night. I feel like a weird, sleep paralysis type of feeling in my body even though I can move, talk and remain conscious. If you have to take this, push through, I for one couldn't, way too strong. I'm going to the doctor again to change my dosage. Horrible F 18 3 days

 3  Prostate Infection After third day I experienced diarrhea. This continued for about 9 days, then switched to loose stools, then almost normal after 14 days. I took probiotics to help digestion. At 20 days extreme depressive moods set in then would disappear, only to re-occur again usually in mid-morning. I found myself ready to snap at people and was getting mad at things that normally would not bother me. I tried to combat this by keeping myself physically active. The physical and mental activity seemed to take some of the starch out of my depressive and negative moods; mind you I don't suffer from depression and am generally a happy guy. Still it was an ordeal. At the end I kind of thought I was going crazy. I'm not sure I would take this drug again. The duration seemed rather long too me. If the depression cycle had started earlier in the cycle I probably would have stopped taking it. But since that after-effect occurred later in the cycle, I decided to hang on and just finish it.

 4  Teeth extraction I read up about antibiotics taken Italy and how it can damage the helpful stomach flora. So I stocked up on probiotic foods, yogurt, kale, spinach etc. I haven't had any issue with taking these, and my skin is clearing up. So I learned that my particular type of acne is bacteria based not diet or cleanliness. It's a bit of a blessing actually. M 29 4 days
