I feel like I'm a little late to the game, here, but I did want to share what helped me with my little girls. From what I've found and read, the bacteria in your stomach/intestines somehow affects your brain. So, no matter what antibiotics you try, you're probably going to have the same problem. I noticed this with my older daughter. She turned from a normally active kid to a hyperactive and violent terror! My cousin told me she had the same problems with her son. (Hitting, kicking, tantrums, etc) What helped us was giving our kids yogurt, to keep the gut bacteria healthy. The next time my daughter had to have an antibiotic, she ate yogurt the entire time she took the medicine, and I had no problems whatsoever with her behavior. There are also probiotic powders and pills, if yogurt isn't your thing. I know at some point in time, my kids will have need of antibiotics, but I also know that giving them some form of probiotics will keep them from the terrible tantrums and mood swings that used to go along with it.
