Side Effects of Amoxicillin ER
Common Amoxicillin ER Side Effects
Amoxicillin ER has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people taking amoxicillin ER were documented and then compared to the side effects that occurred in a similar group of people taking a different antibiotic. As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the group taking a different medication.
In these studies, the most common side effects seen with amoxicillin ER included:
- Vaginal yeast infections -- in up to 2 percent of people
- Diarrhea -- up to 1.7 percent
- Nausea -- up to 1.3 percent
- Headaches -- up to 1 percent.

While it may not be related to amoxicillin ER, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
