Why does my son have major mood swings from antibiotics?

It could be an adverse reaction as Katherine says. It could also be a psychological change from being ill - does it also happen when he's ill and it's not treated with medications? It can be simply from feeling terrible! I still get ear infections, and believe me I have mood swings as a result. If his awareness changes though, he's hard to wake when he's normally bouncing, get to the ER.

Maybe this is his way of lashing out that he does not like the medicine lets face it it tastes horrid. Try bribery next time so that he knows if he has the horrible stuff he can have a square of chocolate. This may settle him down other than that try a different antibiotic.
