Don’t really understand why you would need 3 rounds of antibiotic. Regardless, amoxicillin commonly causes stomach upset and occasional diarrhea. More importantly, may cause a more serious condition called C. Difficile enterocolitis (inflammation of the large bowel caused by antibiotic). See Infectious Diseases or Gastroenterology doctor.

ET dysfunction: Usually the combination of these symptoms is due to inflammation in the sinuses. Because the ears connect to the nasal passages (via the eustachian tubes) and the eyes connect to the nose (via the tear ducts), an infection or inflammation of the sinuses can cause all of these. Try saline nose spray/rinse, benadryl, (diphenhydramine) etc but if not improving, see a doctor.

Try again: Once doesn't always do it for sinusitis. May have a resistant organism and thus need a different antibiotic. May have problems with structure of nose and face and may need other treatment such as surgery. You may not even have a sinus infection? Get re-examined by pcp or by ent.

A few possibilities: Depression is possible, hypothyroidism also and even autoimmune disorders like fibromyalgia. All can lead to fatigue, low libido, tiredness, foggy brain and low energy and motivation. Cold hands and feet are more likely along with fogginess to suggest medical problems. This is only a short list. A thorough medical and possibly psychiatric evaluation are in order.

Wrong dose: The way you are taking the zithromax is not the dosing for chlamydia - for that you need to take 4 250mg tablets at once. That's it. Call your doctor and check out why they prescribed it the way you are taking it.
