    I had a knee replacement in 2010 and a hip replacement in 2016. Since the first surgery, I have had to take 2000 mg of amox one hour prior to any invasive dental appointment.

    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.

    I had 3 wisdom teeth pulled and had to start this medicine the day before my procedure and then start again the day after for a total of 9 days.

    Comment:
    Had tooth abcess and prescribed 500mg 3 times daily. Felt sick, stomach burning acid reflux, rash on neck. Went to doctor who did not connect, did not know what rash was and said I may have ulcer. Blood test etc all fine, then just beginning to feel normal and another tooth erupted. More amoxcyllin and realise my symptons were due to this after reading everyone's experiences, thank you. L ... Show Full Comment
