Likely unrelated: It is likely unrelated. Based on your brief story, it is likely that you just recover from having a fever that you sweat a lot. Amoxicillin is used to treat infection. By treating your infection, your fever improves and you sweat to cool your body temperature down. The medication itself does not cause you to sweat.
