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

Not sure what type: Of infection you are treating with the above antibiotics, but chances are your symptoms may be more related to the disease course than the actual antibiotics.

Needs work-up: For symptoms that are ongoing like that- I think of several possibilities. One would be mono- and that's an easy one (mono-spot test).

Reversing or controlling the process is very challenging; the immune reaction may be controlled but rarely eliminated. Keep working with your Doc ...Read more

Revisit your doctor.: Typically we doctors are trained to think of one disease--one diagnosis. However, the longer I practice medicine, the more I have come to realize that life is not so simple. We frequently have patients with strep and mononucleosis, or strep and influenza; so, maybe you have a "double diagnosis" as well. Please schedule a follow-up visit with your doctor. Some strep infxns express copathogenicity. ...Read more
