Les (1 year ago):
Male, 71 in otherwise good health. I work out regularly, both resistance and cardio. I have taken Amoxicillin a number of times in the past, mostly associated with dental problems. Normally, I'm very regular, but every time I take Amoxicillin (I'm on it at the time I'm writing this), I wind up with mild-to-moderate constipation. I have no other side effects that I'm aware of. Over the years I have found that yoghurt seems to help a lot. I prefer the unflavored low-fat type with fresh fruit that I add myself. About 12-16 ounces a day does the trick for me. I think that any type or brand with live cultures may work for anyone with a similar reaction to the antibiotic.
