Abdominal pain: This may or may not be related to the Amoxicillin or the Ibuprofen (which can cause gastric irritation). The abdominal pain needs a new and thorough evaluation, perhaps for Helicobacter infection or other ongoing issues. You might want to consult with a GI doctor. ...Read more

I was on Amoxicillin for a UTI. I now have lower back pain, a stomach ache & loose stools. I'm taking probiotics, will they be enough to resolve this?

I was on Amoxicillin for a UTI. I now have lower back pain, a stomach ache & loose stools. I'm taking probiotics, will they be enough to resolve this?

Time will tell: This still could be the UTI or could be intestinal microbial overgrowth from the antibiotic (even C Diff) or something else entirely. Probiotics are a good idea, make sure they are high dose (8 B CFU), high quality (refrigerated) and optimally would include some Saccharomyces Boulaardi. Some people take these whenever taking antibiotics. If not better after a week or so, better see your doctor. ...Read more

I'm taking 1000mg Amoxicillin twice a day (12hrs) for bronchitis. Having chills and stomach is uneasy, are these normal side effects?

Maybe: chills is not a medication side effect, suggest more an issue with infection. The upset stomach may be tested to your medication. If you don't have diarrhea or vomiting and can tolerate the abx continue for now. You are on full dose . Take some light food. If things don't get better contact your MD ...Read more

Occasional abdominal pain after a 14 days of 2g of amoxicillin a day. Constant pain during.  Not as bad anymore how long can it last . Taking probiot?

Until you heal: Your GI distress will last until your gut heals from the injury caused by the medicine. Probiotics are a great idea. We offer packets of 225 billion to take every 1-3 days for a few doses to get through this more quickly. You might also minimize any intake of sugar, soda, etc. as they might slow healing and restoration of your gut. www.blatmanhealthandwellness.com ...Read more
