Matt N (3 years ago):

Suffered with sciatica symptoms in lower back/leg for 18 months. I received chiropractic treatment for months with no difference in pain. I Received physical therapy with no change. I started taking 125mg of Amoxicillin twice daily for five days. By the fourth day, the nerve pain and sciatica symptoms became noticeably reduced to the point where I could sit for a full work day without discomfort.
