Comment:
Was given amoxicillin for a bad sinus infection and moderate bronchitis, and instructed to take 500 mg three times a day for seven days. While I've only taken a full day's dose so far, I will say it has not been easy on my irritable bowel syndrome, and the effects seem to worsen right after I take it.

Comment:
Used twice for tooth problems. I experienced an abscess under a molar after a brief high altitude flight in a foreign city. The second time 6-8 months later after a root canal, I experienced another infection of the same tooth, or area. In each case the severe pain and swelling disappeared within 24 hours. Finished meds in 10 days and problem solved.

Comment:
I had 3 wisdom teeth pulled and had to start this medicine the day before my procedure and then start again the day after for a total of 9 days. I took the 500mg 3 times a day as told by my doctor and this has worked great. I have had no side effects even with a weak diet since my food selection was limited to liquids and soft easy to eat foods. I would recommend this to those who need an antibiot ... Show Full Comment
