Brief Answer:
Hello. This may be from the amoxicillin

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Amoxicillin by itself can cause this problem and you should let your doctor know about this and see if he's OK with your stopping it.

That said, this could be a sinus infection not covered by the amoxicillin with postnasal drainage causing the nausea.

Finally, this could be from an H pylori bacterial stomach infection so, were I your doctor, I would screen you for that

Please let me know if you need any more information
