Bacteria Home > Amoxil Side Effects

Nausea and vomiting, insomnia, and dizziness are some of the bothersome but usually not dangerous side effects of Amoxil. Most people tolerate the drug well, but it is possible for more serious side effects to occur. Potentially serious Amoxil side effects that should be reported to a healthcare provider immediately include bloody diarrhea (which can occur even after finishing the medication), vaginal yeast infection, and seizures.

An Introduction to Amoxil Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Amoxil® (amoxicillin). However, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Amoxil. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Amoxil side effects with you.)
