Hi, welcome to health care magic forum,

Thanks for the query,

Well, these symptoms are not due to amoxycillin. you may take amoxycillin with clavulinic acid, this combinition will act better.

Also take supportive treatment with this combinition. dont worry you will be all rite.

Hope this will help you.
