Effectiveness:   Ineffective
Side effects:   Severe Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   abcessed tooth
Dosage & duration:   500 mg taken 2 times a day for the period of 1 1/2 weeks
Other conditions:   n/a
Other drugs taken:   n/a
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   Amoxicillin did little, if any, good for the infection I had with my abcessed tooth. I also had a skin lesion caused by a bacteria, per the doctor, but Amoxicillin did not effect this at all. It stayed the same through the days I took this antibiotic.
Side effects:   I had a severe allergic reaction in the form of red, extremely itchy, welps all over my body, but concentrated on my ribs, chest, and face.
Comments:   After I had the reaction to amoxicillin, I discontinued use immediately. I took 2 rounds of Benefryl and the rash cleared up. The doctor then prescribed a much stronger antibiotic, as my tooth pain was worsening - Cipro.

Comments:   The doctor advised taking 2 tablets for the first dose to 'kick start' it into my system, which I did. After 4 days of the treatment, the swelling and the pain had almost gone. I was then able to attend a dentist who could examine and treat the tooth that caused the abscess.

 

Dispermox review by 25 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Moderately Effective
Side effects:   Moderate Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   sinus infection
Dosage & duration:   500mg taken 3x per day for the period of 7 days
Other conditions:   acne
Other drugs taken:   none
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   The benefits of amoxicillin were that it did help clear the infection, it seemed to help my acne, also. I noticed it working within about four days. I only had to take it for a week. It did not taste bad. It did not make me foggy headed.
Side effects:   the amoxicillin gave me some gastrointestinal upset. After a few days, I had mild diarrhea. It caused a vaginal yeast infection. After the regimen was over, I felt more tired that usual. I think the natural flora in my body was altered and somehow made me feel more tired. I have taken this medication several times for different infections. I was concerned about resistance.
Comments:   The amoxicillin was given in 500mg pill form 3 times daily for one week. It was inconvenient to have to take the medicine every 8 hours, but the physician recommended this time frame in order to keep the blood levels at a helpful level. It meant having to wake up in the middle of the night to take it.

Dispermox review by 24 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Considerably Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   fever and tonsilitis
Dosage & duration:   500 mg taken 3 times a day for the period of 7 days
Other conditions:   flu
Other drugs taken:   paracetamol
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   The treatment benefit was that my fever went down. My tonsilitis was also cured. After seven days or even less I was already feeling better. One benefit is that the cure can be taken orally with no downtime. It did not cause any side effects but sped up my recovery.
Side effects:   I did not experience any adverse effects when I took this drug. The only effect that I experienced was that it made my fever go down and cured my tonsilits. However, I know of people who do not react well with Amoxicillin and are allergic to it. I do not know what sort of adverse effects they might have experienced.
Comments:   My doctor prescribed Amoxicillin 500 mg. I had to take this three times a day for seven days. I had to take it with paracetamol which reduces fever. I took each the Amoxicillin and paracetamol together with a meal. I took them in the morning for breakfast. I took the next one at noontime during lunch. And I took the third one in the evening at dinner.

 

Dispermox review by 62 year old male patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Moderate Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   jaw abscess
Dosage & duration:   1500 mg. per day taken 3 x per day for the period of 10 days
Other conditions:   none, very healthy
Other drugs taken:   metformin
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   I had an infected jaw, an abcess under a back molar that inflamed the entire left side of my lower jaw producing a large ping pong ball sized swelling. This was probably -- my dentist suggested -- due to an infected tooth root that had migrated to jaw tissue. After taking the drug, the swelling started to lessen in about 36 hours and progressively lessened over the next 5 days until it was not visible.
Side effects:   I felt a sense of fatigue, low energy and slightly depressed.
Comments:   Dentitst recommend root canal, and proscribed codeine should have any pain as well as another round of the antibiotic.
