Can amoxicillain make you sleepy?

I just started it today but I can barely stay awake. Which is very bad since I have a toddler. Most drugs do make me sleepy.

  • I don't think sleepiness is a side effect of Amoxicillin, but 1) you are sick with something, that can make you sleepy and 2) an antibiotic is setting up a war in your body against whatever bacteria you have, so there's a real fight going on and that will also make you sleepy.
