i had to take amoxiclav for precaution measures after a still birth 3 days into taking them it felt like i was being blitzed but i was told by doctor to keep taking them they slowly made me feel like i was getting a sore throat anxiety and choking feeling like someone gripping my throat in different places i also felt it in my back and stomach but in it would stop and go to another part 12 days later im still having the choking sensation and i cant eat much food as it makes me choke and 2 doctors said its anxiety after what i have been through but it feels like a drug induced anxiety and the choking feeling has got me really concerned my tongue is white and it feels like i have air bubbles in my wind pipe i have been through a lot but this is not helping me its making me freak out

Hi Anon,

I am sorry about the loss of your baby. What you're describing does not sound like side effects of Amoxiclav-- but more like anxiety--perhaps even a panic attack. This is completely normal given the fact that you have just gone through such a traumatic experience. However, it should definitely be consulted with and treated by your doctor. If your doctor is simply dismissing your anxiety, and you want to control it-- then you may want to look into another doctor. There are relaxation techniques such as sitting in a quiet room, taking nice long deep breathes, imagining whatever the most beautiful thing in the world is to you. You can also eliminate any stressors in your life that you may feel increase anxiety. Watching something you enjoy on tv is also an option-- these are little things you can do to avoid having to go on the medication route.

I hope this helps-- and I hope you have a good support system at home to help you successfully cope with the loss of your child.

Wishing you the best,
