I was prescribed this (generic version) for sinus infection. Completed 10 days of Novamoxin-Amoxicillin(3 tablets x 500 mg/day). 2 days later completing it, had a severe allergic reaction (bad hives, itching, rash). Went to emerg, it was that bad. Now day 9 after break-out: still itchy, but less (it's migrating), rash is diminishing, but am advised it could take up to 6 weeks for these to go ...

I was given this as a result of a long term sinus infection. It is very hard to say whether the antibiotic worked or the sinus infection left on itâ??s own as the side effects were so horrendous. Severe nausea, retching and vomiting, itchiness, dizziness and vertigo, anxiety, disturbed sleep and severe tinnitus. Would never take again even if I was paid to.

I was given 500mg tablets of this drug by my current dentist to help kill off bacteria under the gums that was causing an abscess. This drug while effective on killing the bacterial infection hasn't been such a good trip in terms of side effects, as usual for me with any penicillin based drugs I end up getting dizzy to the point where I have to lay down, even if it means not being able to sleep... but I ended up getting new side effects from this, loose skin at the back of throat, which lead to breathing problems, biofilm on my tongue, a really huge sense of dread/anxiety, my tinnitus has increased ringing and most recently since three days ago, moderately strong heart palpations while laying down and attempting to fall asleep.
