On day 4/5 taking 500mg amoxicillin 3 times a day. Can't wake up in mornings, extreme tiredness, is this side affect?

No. Something's up.: Tiredness isn't a common side effect of amoxicillin; it could be a residual from whatever infection amoxicillin was trying to treat, or it could represent some other problem unrelated or indirectly related to amoxicillin (for instance, kidney damage causing an electrolyte imbalance). In any case, you should talk to the doctor who prescribed amoxicillin for you or use HealthTap Prime to get answers ...Read more

Virus? Allergy?: Most illnesses like this are due to common respiratory viruses or allergies, and these do not respond to any kind of antibiotic. Perhaps amoxicillin was worth a try, but no surprise it hasn't helped. Check back with the doctor treating you. Good luck! ...Read more

My child is ill: This very well may be a reaction or side effect in the GI tract of the antibiotic. If your child is improving then we have time to wait and watch. But, if there is any fever, increasing lethargy or unresponsiveness you may want to call your doctor on call. ...Read more

Fatigue, malaise, weight loss, low grade fever. ASO screen >400. On oral amoxicillin, 10 days. No better. What needs to be checked next? What tests?

Strep test: Did you have earlier ASO titer which then documented rise of ASO? If you truly had strep infection which was not sensitive to Amoxil (amoxicillin) there are plenty of others available. Your doc should speak to the ID maven at your local hospital and ask for advise on treatment in your particular zone. ...Read more

29 yr. Old male with history of hypothyroid & has severe head cold and chest congestion since dec. Muscle weakness and fatigue. Is amoxil (amoxicillin) best route?

Not cold: "a cold" it is generally meant to refer to a viral upper respiratory infection or uri. This is a self limited infection which means it gets better on its own in 1-2 weeks. When respiratory symptoms have persisted for this long it's time to look for another explanation. See a doctor who can take some time, and follow up. ...Read more

On augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for 10 days last dosage yesterday.Can this cause fatigue, muscle aches, joints to hurt, anxiety- been reading nasty stuff from patients?

Need more info: This is not likely to be due to augmentin, (amoxicillin and clavulanate) but allergic reactions may take strange forms. The question is why were you on antibiotics, was the diagnosis correct, do you have something else going on at the same time, etc.? If this keeps up please go see a good family practitioner or internist and get diagnosed and treated. Good luck. ...Read more
