I'm having nausea & shortness of breath...should I continue taking my amoxicillin...it will be 2 weeks come Monday since I've had my tooth pulled?

Get checked: Nausea and shortness of breath are not normal, and could be serious. They may not be due to the Amoxicillin, but could be. Although, likely something else is going on. You need to be evaluated today. Do not take Amoxicillin until you talk to a doc or your dentist and explain your symptoms. If you cannot reach either one this moring go to an ER. ...Read more

Just started amoxicillin/metronidazole combination treatment, will nausea last the whole treatment? Feeling sick currently, and it's only day 1

Just started amoxicillin/metronidazole combination treatment, will nausea last the whole treatment? Feeling sick currently, and it's only day 1

Side effects: Metronidazole is known for causing nausea, although with this combination of antibiotics it could be the illness itself. I would DEFINITELY call the doctor who prescribed this treatment. Depending on what this is, you might not need the metronidazole at all. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) could replace this combo and you would have very good 'coverage' for whatever that doc is trying to treat. Hope you can get help. ...Read more

Gastritis: Amoxicillin can have a side effect of causing nausea as well as some inflammation in the stomach called gastritis. Just stopping the medicine may take. Away the source but the gastritis will take some time to heal. Try OTC Zantac (ranitidine) and probiotics. If this doesn't resolve the issue, go to your primary care physician ...Read more

Nausea: Well....many meds can cause nausea. It would be nice to know what exactly is causing it. Antibiotics are some of the biggest offenders.Zofran is very well tolerated and excellent for nausea of all types in its generic form (ondansetron). Issues with esophegeal and GI motility can cause nausea as well. You should see a GI doctor for endoscopy, manometry and pH testing. ...Read more
