Headaches are common with prescription medications. However, they are usually amendable to ibuprofen. You may want to call your prescribing doctor and let him or her know. What are you taking amoxicillin for anyways? How many days are you supposed to be taking it? Have you ever had this side effect of the medication before? Do you have a history of headaches? Have you tried anything other than ibuprofen? I would recommend getting Excedrin Migraine over the counter tablets
