What are the side effects of amoxicillin extended-release?

Although generally quite well tolerated, amoxicillin extended-release can cause side effects. These include: headaches, dizziness, upset stomach and sleep disturbances, such as insomnia. Tell your doctor if these side effects persist or are severe. More serious side effects are possible and you should contact your doctor right away if you experience them. These include: symptoms of an allergic reaction to amoxicillin extended-release tablets, including severe itching, a rash or hives or swelling of the face or mouth; trouble breathing; dark urine or difficulty urinating; seizures; severe diarrhea; bleeding and bruising; extreme fatigue or weakness; yellow skin and eyes; and skin problems, such as blistering and peeling. Like other antibiotics, this medication may cause yeast infections, characterized by vaginal discharge or vaginal irritation, and thrush, characterized by white patches in the mouth.
