Amoxicillin - cat not eating

My cat started to rake amoxicillin last night and will have to take it for 4 weeks. She is now hardly eating at all. She won’t touch her cat food and had maybe a tablespoon of steamed chicken. Even tuna was ignored.

It seems to be a common side effect but before I go to the vet again maybe someone here has experienced this in his or her cat and knows a trick to get a cat to eat again? I am also wondering whether this only occurs during the early days of a treatment with amoxicillin or whether this lasts during the entire course of treatment.

I am in Germany and have something similar. She ate the last one so I will go to the vet on Monday and get those and also ask whether to continue with the amoxicillin.
