Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
Only took amoxicillin for three days. Symptoms increased to where I could not stand or walk by myself, when lying down, the room was spinning so fast I could not see anything but blurs. Stopped taking it, and two days later, symptoms have decreased, to where I can function, but it is still there, in the background.
From this study (3 months ago):
Infected Teeth, Started On Amoxicillin 875 MG twice a day and started itching,muscle spasms in legs when resting or laying down, pain in shin bone when walking or standing, random dizzyness and black "slurs" in my vision, or eyes crossing and blurring out. as well as nausea
