Diverticulitis Using Amoxicillian/clav

TJ Says:

I have diverticulitis. I am taking amox clav 875 2x a day. It makes me sweat at night and I don't normally sweat. I smell just like the pills. Its horrible. How long will this last?

Hello, Tj! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having, I understand why that would be annoying.

This medication is classified by the FDA as an antibiotic and the side effects will usually linger for about a week, after you finish your course of treatment with it. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash, headache and diarrhea.

How long will you be taking it?

The good news on the smell is that it is way more noticeable to you than to other people, so no one else will likely notice.

I used amox/clav 875 tb for divitulis and I had no side effects. It's a wonderful pill. I took before Flagyl and cipro. The Flagyl is horrible side effects. From now on I ask my doctor for amox/calv 875 tab. I'm so happy I found a pill I can tolerate. Maddy
