Infant Care (up to 18 months old) board


My daughter's 14 months old and I just took her to the docs last week. Anyway, he said that she has a throat infection and he prescribed her Amoxil. She's probably on her 5th day of taking it today, but the past couple of days, her stool has been black. Has anyone ever heard of such a side effect before I call this doctor yet once again??? Thanks
I have not heard of Amoxil producing black stools, however, my son has only had it once. Just wanted to let you know that if, by chance, you gave your child Pepto-Bismol for some reason, that can produce black stools. I would call your doctor and make sure as this can be a sign of blood in the stool.
