I went to the dentist because I suspected I have an infection in one of my back tooth. It's been aching for several days and I got from the gum around it. The dentist put me on a 7-day course of Amoxicillin to see if it will fight the infection. After a week, I went back to the dentist and she said I would need a root canal treatment. After another week, I finally had the done and I was put on Amoxicillin again for 7 days. Three days ago, (exactly one month after the canal treatment)I went back to the dentist because the treated tooth has started hurting. She again gave me a 7-day supply of Amoxicillin to see if it will lessen the pain. Yesterday, I was laying on the couch watching TV and I had the worst dizzy spell I think I ever had. I tried to sit down but the room was spinning. I tried to be still for a few minutes and it went away. The whole day today, it kept on happening. My head hurts if I move it even just a little.
Is it possible that Amoxicillin can cause this dizziness? I have had 3 courses of antibiotics and I am now worried that it harms my body. What would happen if I stop taking the Amoxicillin? I still have four days left. If I can't stop it now, would it be safe if I take the antibiotics every other day?
I would be really grateful for any advice you can give me.
