From this study (11 months ago):
I had several violent panic attacks just after 2 dosis of Benadryl, which I took to heal the skin itching. I suppose this itching is produced by Amoxiciline, correct?
From this study (2 years ago):
Sandy on Jan, 24, 2013:
I am a 49 year old female who was given Amoxicillin for an upper respiratory infection. Prior to being given the Amoxicillin I was taking Sudafed 24 hour and Mucinex Max. After starting the Amoxicillin I was waking up with horrible panic attacks. I have never had a panic attack in my life and was TERRIFIED. Is it the Amoxicillin? I have heard that Sudafed is made with a product that can bring on panic attacks. But, I did not have the panic attack until I started the Amoxicillin. Now, I cannot sleep in my bed because that is where I had my first attack and now I am extremely fearful. My doctor has put me on Lorazepam to help calm me but I do not want to get stuck on these drugs either. Please help with any info.
