There are some antibiotics that can cause mood swings. Particularly some that treat acne problems. There could also be a medicine interaction. If you think there is a problem check with the Pharmacist and your Doctor.

I have not experienced any mood swings when my kiddos are on an antibiotic. However, I would suggest mentioning something to the child's doctor because it could be an allergic reaction. Granted it is not a life threatening reaction, but it is just that, a reaction. Have the doctor try a different med. next time one is needed. Good luck.
