How Long Do Augmentin Side Effects Last?

February 4, 2018 | By More

Firstly a disclaimer, if you have just eaten and have a soft stomach, avoid this post. You’ve been warned.

My dentist prescribed a two week regime of Augmentin for minor work that needs to be performed on a tooth. I finished the prescription one week ago. And I still have some odd side effects. 

Before I started taking this, I had a normal energy level where I could exercise and do my work, etc. Now I have wayyyyyy too much energy and even though I start to feel drowsy at my regular time when I got to bed, I can’t fall asleep until 2 -3 hours later.

The other effect I’ve been experiencing are dry lips. This is annoying. There is no change in saliva and my mouth is just as moist as before taking Augmentin.

Also during the last three weeks it’s been as my appetite has been suppressed, but now it has returned with a vengeance where I eat more a lot. It would be equivalent to opening the flood gates on a dam.

Here’s the disgusting part.

I’ve noticed that the color of my feces has changed from a light brown to an extremely dark brown.

Other than that I’ve been taking a probiotic three times a day, which I started two days ago. And eating Greek yougurt.

So I would like to know, is it common for side effects to last after taking Augmentin? How long will they last? And if you have any ideas on this, please let me know.
