insomnia and vomiting - 7 yr old daughter taking amoxicillian for Strep Group GI have two more posts to refrer to where I explained what my daughter is going through. She was diagnosed with Strep Group G. The doctor prescribed Amoxicillian. She is o.k. during the day (still has swollen, red,tonsills and today was the third day on antibiotics - and the 8th day since she came down with the strep symptoms). Come bedtime last night, she experienced insomnia like she has never experienced it before. She was unable to sleep more than five hours all night long, and woke up at 3 am vomiting. She could not go back to sleep. I thought that she would sleep like a log tonight, but I was wrong. She was tired but o.k. today (I decided not to give her a nap as that always prolongs bedtime), until bedtime. I gave her the night dose of medicine, read books to her, and right after the books she started feeling very anxious and got a stomach ache. She panicked and cried and worried about not being able to fall asleep, asking me what if she forgets how to fall asleep, and what if she vomits in her sleep and doesn't wake up. She vomited again at around 9:45 pm, and finally passed out asleep at around 10:30 pm.
Could the amoxicillian be causing all of these symptoms? Or, as a friend suggested, could the 'junk' from her tonsills be dripping down her throat and into her stomach, affecting her only at bedtime? I'm afraid this is going to be a nightly occurance and she wont get the sleep she needs to heal.
Is there anything I can give her to help relieve the anxiety at bedtime and help her sleep? I've already tried Valerian/Passion Flower tincture for kids and she just vomited that up along with her antibiotics.
If you need any information on her profile, you can read my post labeled '7 yr old daughter w/fever & swollen tonsills' from July 22nd.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

When tonsils are swollen it means that they are working hard to preserve the balance of vital forces within the body.
When you administer antibiotics you are driving this problem deeper into the body and vomiting is only one of the bad things that can occur.
I would suggest you stop the antibiotics and if the throat is bright red use doses of Belladona 30c .

I have thought of using Belladona, but her fever was never high - only low grade fever. Now she doesn't have a fever, just swollen tonsills, and intense stomach pain, nausea with vomiting, and insomnia due to the pain and anxiety.
I wish there was something I could give her for the pain other than hard narcotics! She has never needed these before.
Her immunity has been very stong the past two years - stronger than ever before. We only eat organic, healthy food and we always use natural remedies for little ailments. She was the only child in her class who didn't get the flu this year, or any other illness. I don't know why her immunity is so weak all of a sudden.
Any advice or oppinions are always appreciated.

Keep her away from spicy and oily foods for some time. The antibiotics would also kill the beneficial bacteria in the intestine.
