Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 months ago):
I've taken 1500mg of amoxicillin for 5 days have sore throat now.
From this study (5 years ago):
I started a course of amoxicillin on Saturday evening for a suspected but non-classical sinus infection (long-term, low level). (2, 500 mg capsules 2x/day) By Sunday afternoon I had post-nasal drip, a runny nose, sneezing, and sinus pressure/congestion moderately to severely. I am concerned that this is an adverse reaction to the amoxicillin and curious to know if clearing the bacterial infection may have allowed an allergic reaction to ramp up somehow. I am on this site to try to determine if I can take some Claritin in the middle of the night hoping it will allow me to sleep for work in the morning.
