  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • My 5 year old daughter was prescribed with Amoxicillin, Metronidazole and Omeprazole after being diagnosed with hyplory some stomach bacteria. She was on the treatment for 7 days. She has not been the same. She started hallucinating, not sleeping at night, anxiety, depression symptoms’, name it. She has been behaving like someone with mental illness. Loss of concentration. She was referred to A&E paediatrics and most of the doctors had no clue what was wrong. Only one consultant agreed to the effect of the drugs. It has been 3 weeks and there is improvement.

    You should read about PANDAS. You are describing all the hallmark symptoms. Children with this disorder have an incorrect autoimmune response to Strep, but often other infection trigger the same response which ultimately attacks the basal ganglia of the brain. Most likely, it was not the antibiotic that caused your daughter to behave like she was "suddenly" mentally ill. Instead, I would explore that her immune system was triggered by the infection. The reaction can take weeks or days to set in motion - which can be misleading to parents.

    My daughter also had problems when on amoxicillin and they were NOT related to being sick. She'd had a deep filling and the dentist was trying to prevent an infection. The day before starting it, she had an amazing gymnastics meet. By the time she was on it a few days, she was behind the music and the other girls. She got in trouble at school and in the after school program when she normally does not. Her behavior at home was terrible. She failed a math exam that covered easy material she knew well. She will not be taking it again unless there are no other options. Metronidazole can cause peripheral nerve damage so I wouldn't be surprised if it affected brain function.

    It could be a case of PANDAS. Unfortunatelt there is no cure but good news is it seems to fade over time. Try a google search for "pandas amoxicillin"

    My 7yr old daughter had a reaction after 5 doses of amoxicllin. She was unable to stop moving her legs in bed. The next day she was hyperactive, and then for the next 5 days she had 'meltdowns' which are not characteristic of her. She had a worse reaction to zyrtec and benadryl the year before...she could not stop moving, she was uncomfortable, cried a lot, wet the bed, and was nervous.

    It seems as though her system became hypersensitive after the zyrtec reaction.

    Does anyone know of a doctor familiar with these reactions?
