Is it normal for amoxicillin 500mg to make me sweat a lot?

Is it normal for amoxicillin 500mg to make me sweat a lot?

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. ...Read more

I was prescribed Amoxicillin 500mg 3 times a day for 7 days for a gum infection. Can I just take it 2 times a day instead? I think 3 times a lot.

I was prescribed Amoxicillin 500mg 3 times a day for 7 days for a gum infection. Can I just take it 2 times a day instead? I think 3 times a lot.

Take as prescribed: Generally amoxicillin is taken 3 times a day and taking it twice a day can create resistant bacteria in your body and make it more difficult for your body to get rid of infections. Unless you are having bad side effects on the antibiotic I would try to take it 3 times a day. Good luck ...Read more

Been taking amoxicillin for 3 days (upp. Respitory infec.) Today I've been coughing horribly, puking lots of mucus. Could meds not be working?

Depends: If you have a viral infection amoxicillin would not have any effect. You can get tested at your PCP office or urgent care for flu virus with a rapid test and in case that it is positive stop the antibiotics. ...Read more

I've had acne moderately since 15. It cleared up 95% by 25. I was put on a large dose of amoxicillin and have been getting a lot of acne every since.

I've had acne moderately since 15. It cleared up 95% by 25. I was put on a large dose of amoxicillin and have been getting a lot of acne every since.

Instead try...: Topical benzoyl peroxide plus topical clindamycin. Amoxicillin isn't everybody's favorite drug for acne, or long-term maintenance for anything I know. If the topical regimen I've mentioned isn't perfect for you, systemic tetracycline, perhaps 500 2x/day might work. All acne is easy to manage today. ...Read more

Dentist prescribed me 1500mg o amoxicillin a day for a "possible infection", seems like a lot considering my size. 5'2 115lbs, is it safe?

Dentist prescribed me 1500mg o amoxicillin a day for a "possible infection", seems like a lot considering my size. 5'2 115lbs, is it safe?

Amoxicillin: The dose of amoxyl for a young adult like you is 250-500 mg three times per day. So, a total daily dose of 1500 mg is OK. If you have taken one time dose of 1500 mg, that is OK too (one time only). You may continue at 500 mg three times per day ...Read more

I am on Amoxicillin and this is my third day. My urine is very yellow and comes in very less quantity although I've been drinking lots of fluids. I get a little burning sensation while urinating and my back also hurts. What should I do?

Should've improved..: Pain from a uti, when the right antibiotic is used, will improve within a day. Since it hasn't, don't suffer - call your doctor immediately and get re-evaluated since a UTI can become complicated and infect the kidneys (a pyelonephritis) or else a kidney stone blockage be occuring. These conditions are sometimes associated with lower back pain on the affected side. ...Read more

My brother is taking amoxicillin for a sinus infection. He is shivering a lot and feeling weakness and dehydration. Why? How can I prevent this?

Go back to MD: I don't know how long your brother has been on antibiotics and how old, but if after a full 24 hours on the antibiotics and 48 at the most, if he is not better, you have to consider resistance to that antibiotics and for a penicillin, it is high. For sinus infection to be causing what seems like fever and chills and picture of sepsis it seems bad, so go back to your doctor please. ...Read more

If antibiotic: Prescribed to you after the urine culture and the bacteria sensitive to it according to the test result then you are on the right track. Keep taking the antibiotic.

I'm on a second round of amoxicillin for a suspected ongoing sinus infection. I have lots of pain and pressure in temples. I'm worried that ongoing use of amox will cause temporal arteritis?

Not likely: I am not aware of any association between temporal arteritis and sinus infection - your pain is more likely related to your sinus condition
IF you have not responded to therapy you may need further evaluation ...Read more

I read a lot of scary stories about prevpac (lansoprazole amoxicillin and clarithromycin) treatment for h.Pylori online. Should I be worried about taking these pills? I don't know what to do.

I read a lot of scary stories about prevpac (lansoprazole amoxicillin and clarithromycin) treatment for h.Pylori online. Should I be worried about taking these pills? I don't know what to do.

Take it: If you have been prescribed prevpac, (lansoprazole amoxicillin and clarithromycin) my advice is to call your doctor to discuss your specific concerns, and then take it. Not treating h. Pylori with the Prevpac (lansoprazole amoxicillin and clarithromycin) can lead to future ulcers, perforations, and ultimately cancer in the more distant future. The benefits of the medicine generally outweight the rare side effects. ...Read more

24-48 hours: If there is a uti, antibiotics will take effect within 24-48 hours but be sure to complete taking all the pills given so that the infection is completely treated. Drinking a lot of water and taking cranberry extract will also help clear a UTI more quickly. ...Read more

Call Pediatrician: There is a possibility of developing clostridium dificile toxin a or b diarrhea due to the antibiotic. Try to give him some probiotics to replenish the normal intestinal flora or bacteria, keep him well hydrated, may supplement his intake of multivitamins too. If diarrhea is moderate to severe will require tests for c. Dificile and tx. For it with Flagyl by mouth. Notify his pediatrician ...Read more

So I had a UTI. Amoxicillin 10 days. Didn't work. Went to ER bc of lots of blood & kidney pain. Now 6 days on cephalexin. When does back pain go away?

Kidney stone: If you are having ongoing pain 6 days into your second antibiotic, either the bacteria is resistant to keflex, or you have a second issue going on as well like a kidney stone that could cause the blood in your urine and the pain. If kidney stones were not excluded in your prior evaluations, they should be looked for. Have your doctor check the culture results from your previous visits. ...Read more

Dental Infection: Amoxicillin will generally help to control your dental infection, but you will still need to seek definitive care from your dentist to eliminate it. As far as your concern as to whether you have a UTI, you should consult with your primary care physician. If they suspect a UTI, they would most likely want to do a urinalysis and subsequent culture and sensitivity if any bacteria are found. ...Read more

My 16 mth Old has a double ear infection and a cold (a lot of mucus). Is it ok to give her whole milk or will that make the mucus worse? She is on Amoxicillin, will the milk affect the antibiotic?

Milk is okay!: Milk is okay, itis a myth that it makes mucus worse. Don't give her milk within an hour to hour and a half before or after the antibiotic, as it can interfere with absorption of the antibiotic. This is true for all meds, except those that say "take with food." Same thing goes for antacids. Hope she is better by Xmas! If she is, I know that you will be, too. Happy Holidays! ...Read more

I have been taking amoxicillin for about 6 days and now my stomach feels upset and my stool is mustard yellow? Drank a lot of green tea and honey

You may stop Atb: Antibiotics can cause stomach upset after a few days of use. But they have done their job in 5-6 days. So if your problem for which you took amoxicillin has resolved, you should stop taking the antibiotics right now. Take some imodium (over the counter) if you need more quick relief from stomach upset. ...Read more

I have an upper respiratory tract infection for about a week now and was given antibiotics (amoxicillin) to treat it. Since I woke up this morning, I have been coughing a lot harder, feeling lightheaded and feeling like I am going to faint and getting ver

Need exam + Xray: Time to see your doctor and Xrays will probably be ordered. If the amoxicillin had been effective, your cough would have been expected to improve, not worsen. People can faint from prolonged, hard coughing. If you feel sudden light-headedness, it may help to lie down. Please avoid driving until the light-headedness has resolved. You might Google "cough syncope" for more information. ...Read more

I get strep throat a lot! Always have! Anyways I recently had the worst step throat of my life. My throat was even turning black (looked like mold) anyways I had amoxicillin from having gum surgery and decided to take some before bed to cope with the pain

I get strep throat a lot! Always have! Anyways I recently had the worst step throat of my life. My throat was even turning black (looked like mold) anyways I had amoxicillin from having gum surgery and decided to take some before bed to cope with the pain

Worisome: If you are having this much problem at your age the tonsils likely need to come out. Antibiotics may help if this is strep, but many of the most painful throats are produced by viruses (mono) or other bacteria. I suppose you are immunized, so diphtheria is unlikely, but self diagnosis creates problems when you try to get surgery authorized. See your doc now & an ENT after this episode clears ...Read more

What is the best antibiotic prescribed for sinus infection? Due to getting strep throat a lot I think I have become immune to amoxicillin. Can this be

Strep throat: If u r getting treated for strep throat 3+ times a year, u r probably doing more harm than good. Not only do the antibiotics kill good bacteria in your gut but they indirectly make u more susceptible to more infections by killing those good germs. I strongly recommend u starting a high dose probiotic (225 billion cfus). This will heal your immune system &decrease strep infections &heal your gut. ...Read more
