No: Amoxicillin may be given to a sick person that has or develops one or more of these issues but it does not cause them. Dehydration is caused by inadequate fluid intake. Infections are caused by germs. Constipation or stomach pain are vague symptoms with many possible causes but I put amoxicillin on the bottom of any such list.
