Thanks for your question. This is most certainly not normal and quite unusual reaction to amoxicillin. I would be evaluated by your doctor prior to taking another dose.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
