User Comments about Amoxicillin
26 May 2017 I went to see my doctor after an entire night of suffering a severe headache and sore throat, unbelievable body aches, and a fever of 101. She gave me Amoxicillin 250mg tablets and Ibuprofen 800mg tablets. I started feeling better two days later. But some people experience some side effects, you can get to know more details over here http://www.internationaldrugmart.com/amoxicillin.html

14 Nov 2014 I recently have had the flu virus and my local GP advised me take a prescription drug that was antibiotics but actually called Amoxicillin. I took a dose of it yesterday and I recently discovered that I have a huge rash from my face to my legs. I had found out that the Amoxicillin had made me start to itch many times. The rash was bright red so I don't know what has happened and why.

29 Jan 2014 I've used this drug for my ear infection, with which i've been struggling as far as i can remember by self. Amoxicillin(see the list of drugs which contains this substance: http://pharmacyreviews.md/ingredients/amoxicillin) worked great in treating my infected ear caused by rupture ear drums and tubes. This medication relieves pain in max 48 hours, but it does it job, and it will be effective for the entire treatment. I normally take ibuprofen as well to make it faster as it is an anti-inflammatory and helps for the healing process. The bad part of it is that it causes east infection, you need to ask your doctor for help. Also, if i don't eat or very tired, i get nausea after taking amoxil.
