As such long-term antibiotic regimens do not seem more effective than short-term treatment and they seem to produce more adverse effects as in your case.
So considering adverse reactions i do think that it is better to stop antibiotics after 11 days course.
I hope this helps
Amoxi-Clav is known to cause:
This medication may also in rare instances cause a potentially dangerous condition called antibiotic-associated, or pseudomembranous, colitis. Symptoms include severe, watery diarrhea that may be bloody. If you notice these symptoms, stop taking amoxicillin - clavulanic acid and contact your doctor as soon as possible. This is rare however and should it occur see the doctor again ASAP!
As to birth control pills amoxicillin and clavunic acid (which is just added to make the amoxicillin more effective in fighting the bacteria) interacts with almost all of them regardless of the makeup of the specific brand. This reduces the effectiveness of this method of birth control and during this period the chances of pregnancy are MUCH higher than normal. Sexual activity should be limited or another method used in addition to the pill while taking the antibiotic. This is caused by a change in hormone levels and this change in levels is what also causes headaches, increased anxiety, sweating, increased heart rate, and acne as you are now experiencing. It is always best to complete the entire course of antibiotics and cutting the course short may allow the strongest bacteria that are not killed off initially to multiply and thus cause a much more severe infection that will require stronger antibiotics to treat the infection which of course will cause many of the side effects you are having now. Since you have completed 11 days you are close to a full course but toughing it out for a few more days will prevent you having to go through the whole process from day 1 again which I'm sure you don't want to do.
