    Default Antibiotics/ illness affect on behavior

    Ds is almost 4, he was really sick Saturday and diagnosed with a throat infection. He started antibiotics Sunday.
    Since Sunday he has gone backwards with his behavior.
    He is a little crazy!
    He is more impulsive, annoying us and his brother, not listening etc.
    Is this normal reaction?!

    Asthma medication does this to my child. It turns him into a crazy violent lose all impulse control person. I dunno about anti biotics tho

    My son is currently on antibiotics and ventolin, his current behaviour is shocking, he was fine before. He's so irrational and violent it's horrendous

    It's the ventolin, it makes people agitated.

    I just looked up at work (I'm a nurse) listed adverse events for ventolin and it states 'hyperactivity in children'.
    If you wanna give me the names of the antibiotics I can look them up of you too.
