Hello dear Michelle!

Taking two doses of amox close together will not cause such symptoms of feeling sick.Hence remove it from your mind that amox is causing the symptoms.
Cause for your symptoms is underlying illness for which you are on treatment.This illness itself is causing such feeling of being sick.
So complete the treatment as advised and get blood tests done for cause of your illness so that definitive treatment can be started.
Consult with a good physician for clinical correlation and treatment.
Hope this could help you better.
