 2  tonsillitis Dizziness, weakness, and worst of all.. a yeast infection This is absolutely ridiculous, never in my life have I had a yeast infection. Maybe it's worth taking penicillin if you have a really horrible infection in, say, a major organ like a kidney or something. But for tonsillitis I think a weaker antibiotic would've worked just fine. I didn't even take it all, I only took it as prescribed for 4 days before it caused a yeast infection and I quit taking it. Because really, what's the point in attempting to treat a yeast infection when you still have to swallow the cause of it for 6 more days. So now the tonsillitis will probably come back, but I don't care. I refuse to take any more penicillin, it's not at all worth it. F 23 10 days

PENICILLIN V POTASSIUM  (PENICILLIN V POTASSIUM):  Penicillin is an antibiotic used to treat and prevent a wide variety of bacterial infections. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats and prevents only bacterial infections. It will not work for virus infections (such as the common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
