Fluoxetine & amox: Amoxicillin? There are no obvious interactions between the two meds. (Fluoxetine, an SSRI used to treat depression & anxiety) and amoxicillin, an antibiotic, are both commonly used treatments. Unclear what amoxicillin was prescribed for. Do you have a sinus infection? That may cause pressure. Dizziness can be a side effect of SSRIs, but can also be caused by anxiety. Best bet, call MD & discuss!!

Yes: the symptoms are unlikely to have been caused by those 2 meds !
