 2  Tooth infection/root canal Jittery, anxious, heart palpitations I was prescribed this by my general dentist for a tooth infection. I've taken amoxicillin before (just not this high of a dose @ 3x a day) with no side effects. On day 3 I started getting extremely anxious and jittery with heart palpitations. Had first part of root canal on the 3rd day so chalked up the anxiety to nerves about the procedure. I was told to continue with the antibiotic until finished. I have about 5 more days of this medication and I don't think I can finish. I've left messages at the dentist and endodontist offices to see if I can stop! F 50 6 days

 1  middle ear infection anxiety, panic attacks, constant fight or flight response, diarrhea and severe dehydration, fatigue, loss of appetite The anxiety is due to your healthy gut bacteria being severely disrupted and not taking proper care to help restore them. I immediately quit taking mine because the panic attacks were so bad it has left me with GAD months after stopping.. Never had a problem w/ anxiety until then. please go buy a multi strain probiotic and KEEP YOUR FLUIDS UP!!!!! hunger will come later F 21 7 days

 1  Sinus Infection Severe Anxiety, Disorientation, Brain Fog, Dizzy, Nauseous, Blurry Vision, Fatigue. So glad I found this page, knowing I'm not alone. It's been a rollercoaster of a ride. I went from being an avid gamer to not even wanting to touch my computer. Feeling fine one day then so anxious to the point of having really bad anxiety so that I pace around the room trying to distract myself. Then the next day not being able to get out of bed. Hoping this wears off because it's hard not being able to do my normal routine. F 26 7 days

 3  tooth infection Panic attacks. Disorientation. Depersonalization. Dread. Fear. Plus the physical gastro side effects (diarrhea, etc). After 3 days of only 2 capsules a day (I am cautious about taking antibiotics) I felt much better. Tooth didn't hurt and I could chew on that side easily. But like all of us "take the full course of antibiotics!" I kept on. The first day wasn't so bad, just a little anxiety from knowing I'd have to have more dental work (extraction eventually) and sleeplessness and weird dreams. But now on Day 5, even at only 2 capsules a day, I am a mess. I occasionally take a very low dose of diazepam and it didn't help at all. I've been having panic attacks for a long time after over-taxing my adrenal system with too much coffee years ago. I'm now very sensitive to caffeine, epinephrine, etc. Never thought this "mild, rather benign" antibiotic would trigger an attack. I have no problem normally with Bactrim or Z-Pack. I read a really good article about NOT taking the full course as prescribed. www.statnews.com/2017/02/09/antibiotics-resistance-superbugs/ F 73 5 days

 1  UTI As soon as I had my first tablet, I felt extreme anxiety. If you have an anxiety disorder, I do not recommend. I manage my anxiety exceptionally well and this felt overwhelming. I'm so glad I found this page, and am not the only one who felt this! Side effect ceases within a few hours. F 35 0 days

 1  tooth infection Thank goodness I found this page. I took my first dose and felt fine, no issues. Took the second dose at night and shortly after I had a panic attack. I thought I was losing my mind. I had no idea why I felt the way I felt. Next day found that I probably felt the side effects of the drug e.g. I felt nausea and had loads of diarrhea and thought that my body just hit the panic button. 4 days later around 4:30pm I have another panic attacked, this one lasted 1.5 hours. I felt horrible, felt like I couldn't control my body. I finally had my husband google if amoxicillin caused any anxiety issues and we came across this page. THE RELIEF I FEEL SEEING I'M NOT ALONE IS SO INDESCRIBABLE. In 2019 I was diagnosed an ulcer and had to take a boat load of amoxicillin and other antibiotics for about 2 or so months. I felt the worst anxiety of my life. Now I'm thinking this was the cause. I had just thought it was in my head. F 30 7 days

 1  Uti I started to get anxious. Then chest pressure and pain,.. then all hell broke loose snd I developed akathisia. I was completely unable to sit still, I couldn't sit or lay in bed longer than a minute or so. I had to keep walking to burn off what felt like endless amounts of adrenaline. I felt like I was going to die,.. I was crying with my mother and telling her I didn't want to die. Felt like I was gonna end up in the ER. Thank God my mom came over and pointed out the amoxicillin and told me to not take it anymore. After 4 days now I am still jittery and wake up In cold sweats and shake a bit but I don't feel the need to walk 24/7. I can rest and sleep sporadically. I had to tell job I couldn't come in for a while due to having panic etc. I honestly would not wish this on anyone. It was torture snd I'm still not back to normal yet but it's only been 4 days since stopping. Please be careful. For me drinking organic beet juice like 3 glasses helped calm me down after stopping the drug. M 35 3 days

 1  Uti Chest tightening, pure adrenaline, uncontrollable shakes, tremors, inability to sleep, inability to stay still I had the constant urge to move (akathisia), visual problems, dizzy, inability to eat. The last few days have been hell. I think I'm on my 3rd day after stopping, if I would have taken for one more day I think I would have ended up in the ER, I felt insane and severely agitated. Now three days after stopping I'm able to sleep some and not be so on edge. I chugged beet juice to make the tremors stop and to be able to stay still in bed. It helps lower blood pressure. I would not give this drug to my worst enemy. The symptoms I had were torturous. I was able to calm the symptoms by walking and drinking lots of water snd beet juice but only after stopping the med. whatever this stuff is it's pure poison. I am pretty sure I had amoxicillin in the past with no issues. As I can read on this forum a lot of others have had similar problems. I felt completely poisoned taking this. M 35 3 days

 1  Prophylaxis for dental procedure I needed to take 2 courses of Amoxicillin within 4 months of each other. Following the second course it caused depression and anxiety, and I eventually had panic attacks so bad I could hardly stand up. Eventually my brain failed and I became suicidal and and had to take antidepressants. Until I read this page I could never work out the cause of my panic disorder that I had developed when I was 15 years old, then 28 years old, now 44 years old. Now I have joined the dots together and realise my panic disorder always developed followed taking Amoxicillin. M 44 7 days

 1  Strep throat Anxiety, Brain fog, disassociation, crying spells, generally feel out of it as someone that suffers from anxiety, this medicine has heightened my anxiety to disturbing levels. although my strep throat is clearing up, the anxiety, inability to sleep, nervousness, feelings of losing control, and sadness is forcing me to stop. I was prescribed this drug back in 2019 and had no issues whatsoever. I feel this drug has changed or been altered because now I feel absolutely insane at times lol. Sadly, I will not be taking this drug anymore and will be looking for alternatives in the future. 32 3 days

 1  Strep throat/sinus infection Leg aches, shaking, fast heart rate, severe anxiety, some panic attacks, brain fog, depression, stomach upset, headaches, disturbed sleep My anxiety has been so horrible since I started. I want to stop but the infection isn't cleared enough. I don't feel like myself and I've been crying for days and feeling lonely - none of these things being normal for me. I can hardly focus at work and I can't stop that feeling of tenseness throughout my body. No amount of exercises I've learned through therapy or rest is alleviating the symptoms. I can't wait to get off these pills. M 31 10 days

 3  sinus infection I didnt experience really bad side effects while taking. Now that I finished Rx 4 days ago, I am feeling worse. After finishing the Amoxicillin Rx 4 days ago, I have lightheadedness, dizziness, stiff neck and nausea. These didnt happen while taking the prescription, and they have never happened before. Has anyone else experienced after effects? Can the Amoxicillin stay in your body after you finish taking it? When I get a sinus infection, I have no congestion or post-nasal drip. I just have awful pressure and headache and throbbing nostrils and sinuses. These are still going on. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who might have had side effects AFTER stopping the Amoxicillin. M 74 10 days

AMOXICILLIN  (AMOXICILLIN):  Amoxicillin is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. This medication is a penicillin-type antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections. Amoxicillin is also used with other medications to treat stomach/intestinal ulcers caused by the bacteria H. pylori and to prevent the ulcers from returning.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
