Any risk of Tendonitis with amoxicillin?
Hi, Joshua. I've had tendonitis for a long time now, and it's starting to improve. Just today I was prescribed amoxicillin for an unrelated dental infection, and I just wanted to know if there is any risk for tendon damage, or is that only with the fluoroquinolone antibiotics?
Primarily it's just with fluoroquinolones.
My first thought to your question was 'No, Amoxicillin doesn't cause Tendonitis
See: What Is Tendonitis?
I did some extra research to make sure, and didn't come across anything that indicated that Amoxicillin was a danger to tendons and connective tissue.
Having said that, everybody is a little different and their scenario is a little different. So while Amoxicillin isn't known to cause tendon problems, there are a variety of ways it can cause your particular scenario to create pain/problem.
After (and during) taking it and while the tooth gets taken care of, I -would- take probiotics to replenish all the good (and important) bugs in your stomach that antibiotics kill off.----------------------
