antibiotics and milk drying up?

Ever since I started taking penicillan for my tooth absess my milk has dried up DRASTICALLY! I usually could pump 10 oz a day but now if I can pump 1 oz for the whole day I'm lucky. I notice even my DD2 is screaming after about 1 min at each boob because she's getting nothing. I can't even hand express anything. Anyone ever hear of that?
