I have a 2 yo DS who has been on Amoxicillin since Monday night. Last night I gave it to him after he had been asleep a while b/c we forgot to give it to him with dinner <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br>
Around 3 he woke up vomiting, and proceeded to vomit another two times after that within 3-4 hours.<br>
He wanted to eat this morning so I have given him some saltines and water and he has kept them down with no problems....<br>
Has anyone else seen this with their LO's? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!<br>
(I do have a call in to the dr. but haven't heard back yet.)

were they given on an empty stomach? often antibiotics can upset the stomach pretty bad if not given with food.

I guess really they were given on an empty stomach. He ate a little dinner around 6ish and then it was around 10 that I gave the dose. The dr. called back and felt like it wasn't the meds, but a bug instead...He seems to be feeling better now but still think the meds might have played a part.

Yup, abx can be tough on an empty stomach (lots of meds can). I'd give the meds with food from now on, just to be safe.<br><br><br>
Reminds me of the time I forgot to eat when I took my Vicodin (after a double root canal). Wooooooboy, that was a bad idea. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Hope your little one feels better soon! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
