Augmentin/amoxicillin- severe insomnia
OMG! I thought I was going absolutely insane with a mind that wouldn't shut down and relax. I thought it was the career change i'm contemplating, but the severe insomnia seemed a little out of proportion even though there's a lot of factors to consider. my productivity has been reduced to practically nil for 2 weeks +. after trying benadryl, several visits to my homeopath, valerian, even valium, and still not sleeping it just occurred to me look up the antibiotics I've been taking for a tooth absess. I've always been sensitive to drugs with paradoxical reactions- wish I had thought of it sooner! I was so relieved to find this site where my symptoms were mentioned by other people in a significant way. THANK you for being here! Wonder how long it will take to revert to "normal".
