Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for all these additional information.
I understand your concern.
Well as you describe, such stomach bloating can be associated with the Amoxicillin-induced gastrointestinal upset.
So you should take OTC Zantac and Metamucil.
Also, start a probiotic while taking an antibiotic.
Take OTC Mylanta gas.
And hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.
Eat a bland diet.
Your symptoms will resolve gradually.
In case of severe pain abdomen, vomiting then visits the emergency room ASAP for prompt management.
Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

HOW ABOUT FEET

Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the follow-up.

Swollen feet can be associated with impaired kidney function and Diabetic patients are prone to it.

If your swelling has appeared after taking Amoxicillin then it can be drug induced.

So you should see your doctor for a clinical examination and either discontinue it or opt for another antibiotic.

Also your kidney function test, urinalysis, blood sugar levels should be checked.

In the meantime, elevate your feet.

Do gentle leg stretching.

Limit your salt and fluid intake.

Hope this helps.
Use reply to let me know if you have further queries.
