Thought I would pop on here to see if anyone can shed some light - I have been told I have a UTI urine infection and need to take amoxicillin 500mg x3 times a day.

I'm a very anxious person, and suffer from ibs and nervous tummy 🙈

Has anyone had this antibiotic before and been ok or had any effects im so worried I would rather take apple cider vinegar and loads of water to cure it!! (Apparently this works too!)

Any thoughts anyone?
Thanking you 🤞👍😊

I'm currently on these for other reasons.

All good, no side effects!

It's a very commonly used antibiotic with generally a low side effect profile. I've had it lots with zero problems. Hope you feel better soon!

Thank you that's reassured me 👍

I had repeated courses of this for a dental abscess last year and I always find that I feel really hungry with it. DCs have had it for ear/throat/urine infections and never had any problems. Hope you feel better soon!
