    Amoxicillin for Pain (acute)

    It helped a bit against the pain, but after a few days, I got a black hairy tongue, which returns slowly (hopefully completely).

    I got prescribed Amoxicillin after the surgical removal of my wisdom teeth. Should take 3 times daily for 9 days. Had to stop on the 6th day, because I have a black coating on the tongue. On the leaflet is written: in very rare (1 in 10,000 cases) it may come to black hair pains .. Congratulations I thought only, now I have a mushroom in the mouth!

    Side effects: Tongue-covering

    Amoxicillin for Otitis

    The drug was prescribed to me after previously taking another antibiotic against a (virally caused, as it turns out) otitis media. Already on the 2nd day I felt extremely exhausted, drowsy, always drowsy, getting tachycardia and circulatory problems, sweats. In the days that followed constipation, nightmares, hallucinations, emotional disorders. 2 days after stopping my tongue went black and was covered by a dry fur, I had taste sensation there for days no longer … This ‘fur’ broke in the following days bit by bit, usually when brushing teeth. Underneath the tongue was fire-red and burned violently for a few days, v. while eating and drinking. When that was over, a very itchy fungus on my skin and in the genital / vaginal area was preparing, and I generally felt powerless and simply sick and unwell, often suffering from diarrhea. Only after 3 months of unsuccessful treatment of these consequences I got it slowly but successfully solved by a temporary nutritional change. Until then I only had to take antibiotics twice in my life, all without problems. But today antibiotics are prescribed prematurely and often ‘prophylactically’ and also from lack of fertility or lack of knowledge of the doctor. And then as broad as possible – without determining pathogens. And above all: without education about side effects / consequences or what you can then do against them. How should one know it? Very negligent … P.S. viral and bacterial middle ears are very easy to distinguish at a glance of the doctor (if he knows …)
