My 15 month old sone has had 2 ear infections and the first time we gave him amoxicillin and nothing happened. Then just 2 weeks ago he had another ear infection so he got amoxicillin again and within six dasy of being on it he broke out in a rash that was all over his body and it looked like welts. So we took him to the emergency room just this past saturday and he said it was an allergic reaction to amoxicillin.
now they have me on amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium tablets usp 875mg /125mg was fine for a couple days. now have pressure again but this time some slight dizziness some nausea and just feeling like hell. been on this stuff for a week. should i call my doc and say ok now i got this going on or should i try to ride out the storm as best as possible. this thing is kinda worrying me to be honest.
It started after I was diagnosed with a sinus infection 2 months ago and they gave me amoxicillin to clear it. It had only gotten worse so I went to the e.r. for a cat scan. They told me my sinuses look fine and now I have to go back for an mri! I am so scared that it is something entirely different now. I never had these problems before my sinus infection and I am thinking maybe they cannot see the fluid in my inner ear?
In May I began to have dizzy spells which coincided with a sore throat and earache, which cleared up on their own. However, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> and fatigue continued for several weeks. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue.
I was told it could be an ear infection causeing me to feel unbalanced/vertigo but i took Amoxicillin for that and begining to thinks its not that. I have had anxiety in the past but nothing to bad and not to this degree of making me lightheaded. my head always feels funny now, it messes with my concentration and makes me fearful and unable to do anything active. What is this......all I read gives vague answers.

I am scared now as im getting blurred vision in my right eye, on and off and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> is getting worse. I was given anti-biotics by my doctor over the phone as i was too dizzy to get to the surgery as i did have slight pain in my ear, she wasnt happy she couldnt check me over but she understood i have trouble moving around. Although the anti-biotics dont seem to be doing anything, i still have all the symptoms. Ohh the tablets i am taking are Amoxicillin 500mg and im on day 4 of 5.

about 3 weeks ago, I have developed some unexplained dizziness and a heavy head feeling. I remember the first <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> spell came after I drank 2 espressos in about 5 hours. No other symptoms, I am otherwise normal and strong, I am working out four days a week at the gym. My girlfriend suffers from dizziness (especially when standing up) and severe short headaches a few times a day.
said I have gallstones, but they would just monitor these, and that they didn't have anything to do with the anxiety and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span>. I have lost alot of weight about 30lbs, through this whole deal, which is great but unusual for me, and I am still losing my hair, but i am blaming this on my pregnancy-postpardum. Could it be my ears, maybe and inner ear infection or something. My doctor told me in August I had a small bit of fluid in my ears, but never said anything about it again.
I few days ago I saw my doctor, and she said that my left ear was red and prescribed amoxicillin, but I don't feel any better. Does anyone know how long I can expect this to last? And does anyone else have similar symptoms? It is really getting me down, because even doing small things like grocery shopping are now quite difficult for me. I want to get back to normal, so any advice would be appreciated!
This was also closely followed with nasal pressure and sinus headaches, however there was no mucus or discharge from the nose, it just always feels like the lining is inflamed. I also occasionally get neck pain and tightness. When the symptoms are at their worst, my jaw feels extremely tight, and it almost feels like my head is being crushed. I find it very hard to equalise my ears as well because my eustachian tubes are so inflamed.
For a while now, I've been having sinus pain accompained with feelings of dizziness, painful headaches, & ear pain (especially in the mornings). I had my ears cleaned at the Health Center at my college & was told I had a sinus infection and took a round of Amoxicillin. A few weeks before I went to the doctor, I got ringworm on my upper thigh/bikini area from my new kitten who had, and still has, ringworm & likes to sleep under the covers by my stomach/upper leg area.
I was taken to the ER and a CT scan was done, which revealed sinusitis. They prescribed Amoxicillin as an antibiotic and mecilizine for motion sickness/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span>. I have taken all the amox. I don't have a lot of sinus pressure or even feel really bad, but I have a constant feeling of dizziness/lightheadess/being off-balance. This is compounded when I do something like drive a vehicle. I get an instant feeling of off-balance when I begin to drive and other cars are around me moving, etc.
Hello, all the symptoms that your daughter is having are clearly a sign of doxycycline allergy.Doxycycline is not related to amoxicillin and sulfa drugs as it belongs to a different category of drugs(tetracyclines).Side effects of doxycycline are headache, dizziness, blurred vision, body aches, flu symptoms,skin rashes,chest tightness,respiratory difficulty,nausea,vomiting etc.
I am a 34 year old male and for about 2 years have had chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> and a feeling of foggy brain along with a lot of pressure in the front part of my head. It is there 24/7 and is always worse when I either sleep on my right side and/or when I'm tired- or when Im driving, walking, or moving my head around. I have been to several Dr's including an EMT, neurologist, Family Dr. and ear specialist. Nobody has found a thing. I have also had an EKG, MRI, and bloodwork many times.
Since starting the first lot of antibiotics I have had pressure in the head, loud ringing in ears, numbness down left side of face, popping in ears. Now pressure in head getting worse with blurred vision, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> and upset stomach. Family doctor doesn't seem to care too much. Problems getting in to see her. Have been to Out Patient department at hospital 5 times and to her 5 times since this started in October.
I found out that I have Migraine and Vertigo. I rarely have headaches, mainly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> and foggy feeling. I ended up going to a doctor that my ENT sent me to. It was a clinic for hearing & balance. They did an "audio VNG". It is about a 2 hour long series of tests that can narrow down the reasons for the dizziness. It will check for inner ear problems, etc. The tests are pretty intense and make you dizzy on purpose while they put goggles on your eyes that have cameras inside.
It was inflamed and GP started with antibiotic amoxicillin still I have sever pain and the sloughy thing along with a stich came out today.and I feel dizziness most of the time.Is it normal after tonsilectomy? should I need to get any more medical advice?
I'm a 52 yr. old female and for the past month both my ears itch. My right ear on one occasion a small amout of liquid came out, the following three weeks I was so dizzy that even moving from side to side at night would cause dizziness (like a record player spinning). I thought I would have to go to the emergency room. I do have one wisdom tooth that is not in very good shape (cavities). I am also have very hot flashes followed by feeling very cold (possible menopause).
I actually insisted on taking antibiotics because she said that this kind of infection should go away by itself (after I told her that it was lasting almost 2 months). I am on my 8th day of antibiotics and still have sore throat and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> (which I accept to be a side effect, but not sore throat). What should I do? What do you think I have? Thank you for any help!
Hi, about 2 weeks ago I began to get very bad vertigo upon laying down flat and looking from side to side. I went to the doctor and he prescribed amoxicillin and allegra D for fluid in the ear, which he said was causing the vertigo. A week later the vertigo hadnt lessened and I had in fact become quite dizzy all the time. Upon seeing the docotor again, he prescribed Nasacort and Meclizine for the vertigo.
but got canceled because of sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> and fever. my medical doctor call in some amoxicillin 875mg. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> is gone but i have sinus drainage in the back of my throat and it's a little sore. I also have bad gastric reflux....Should I go ahead with my surgey monday feb 23.
The next thing I was given was Erythromycin Stearats(500mg 2 a day for 5 days)However before I started taking them, I had severe attack of dizziness, it was so bad that I had to be taken to hospital. The doctor there confirm the sinusitis and gave me Co-Amoxicillin with Clavulanatet(375mg 3 a day for 7 days) My dizziness, the pressure in the nose (dry) plus discharges going down my troath.
The headaches continued with less duration. I have had 5 mild migraine auras and 2 episodic ones involving <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> and aura. Now I am experiencing light headedness (which is a slight nausea and a very slight dizziness) at times. I am post menopausal for 9 years. My present hormonal blood work reveals that my ovaries are still functioning and I experience several hot flashes daily. Prior going through the change, I have had migraines and migraine auras, my family is very prone to them.
Could be result of taking new meds to fight bronchitis ( been sick since Friday. New meds are Methylprednisolone and Amoxicillin+Clavulanate. possible side affects of the Methylprednisolone includes dizziness which I am experiencing slightly. I called it lightheaded on my chart. I am feeling better, but weak as hell.
I get really off balance sometimes and then I am fine. The doctor made me close my eyes and put my arms out and I fell backwards.
I went in the shower and felt faint, called for my Mum and after a few seconds I did actually faint and lose consciousness. For the next few weeks I was feeling really tired all the time, nauseated and getting bouts of dizziness so I basically spent weeks in bed. Due to being so inactive and hardly eating I ended up in hospital for 5 days with painful impacted constipation.
I would estimate that I usually feel it in the Corpus Callosum or the Thalamus (deep in my head), as well as this very strange feeling in my forehead of eyebrow heaviness, and sometimes double vision and eye pain as I move my eyes left or right. Also severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dizziness</span> has been suddenly activated just by eye movements. I also experience bouts of positional vertigo that lasts several days at a time and then goes into remission for a spell. Here is the strange part...my ears feel full.
