Amoxicillin for tooth infection
17 Replies RSS
In december I developed bad tooth pain and a sore on the gum in a left molar. I have a heart murmer and my blood press.rose to a high level but was erratic and other times a normal rate. I called a dentist and he said to go to the ER. I did and they prescribed amoxicillin at 500mgs every 8 hrs. The last dose was on Jan3,2013 and by then the tooth problem was gone. I went to a dentist and he found no infections but said a molar on the opposite side which had lost some filling should be repaired soon. I made an appt. with him, but in the meantime it developed a blister near the root and soreness at the gumline. Also I started having erratic BP swings again sometimes 160/105 and resting pulse to 88. When I called he said to cancel his appt and go to the ER again, he didn't think the BP...

Amoxicillin Dosing Schedule
2 Replies RSS
My son has two ear infections and was prescribed amoxicillin 3x's daily for 10 days.. Now I do know that I have to administer it every 8 hrs... But exactly how much time do I have before I've missed the dosing time, then have to skip on to the next scheduled time? ## I know, that is a bit confusing, since they don't give a specific time frame, I've just always considered it to be within one to two hours, but I am not a doctor. So, it is always best to double check with his doctor, or pharmacist. However, what I can tell you is you can't really overdose him on an antibiotic, if he is given too much, he may experience more severe side effects than usual, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and diarrhea. But unless he were given many, ...

Hello, My 13 yr. Old son has been complaining about sinus pressure, has a runny nose and his ears bother him. I have a bottle of liquid amoxicillin that he's had from a previous ear infection, 2016. It has an expiration of 2019. Is it safe for him? ## If that is the expiration date listed on the label, it should be fine, but it is always best to double check with your doctor or pharmacist, and you should never medicate a child, unless their doctor confirms the presence of some issues requiring a medication. The FDA lists the typical side effects of antibiotics as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. How is he doing, now? Has there been any change?

I have been prescribed teva 3109, which is Amoxicillin 500mg (for a tooth infection) & I can't swallow the pills. I wanted to know if it was possible to just take the powder that is inside the capsule? Will it still fight off the infection? ## It will still fight the infection. I can't swallow pills either. I open it up and put the powder in applesauce and then take it that way. ## Yes, just as Andria said, it will still be effective. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this antibiotic as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. Just be careful not to take it with any type of grapefruit, or grapefruit juice. is there anything else we can help with?

Root canal/ gum infection
1 Reply RSS
Started out with a gum infection and started taking amoxicillin 2 days ago. Went to the dentist and found out I had a root infection under my crown. He said he fixed that today and just take Tylenol since I'm pregnant. However, few hours later and I'm still in severe pain and can't touch the tooth. Is it normal for the actual tooth to hurt this much still? I figured I'd get a little relief. ## It may take a few days for all of the symptoms of the infection to go away, according to NIH reports, as well as my own experience. Are you still taking the antibiotic? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. Has there been any change? If not, you may need to return to your dentist.

Amoxicillin Dosage

I have 500mg Amoxicillin capsules for an ear infection and they are pink and blue. Last time I had an ear infection the capsules were red and yellow. I'm wondering if these were a different dosage, its been a few years but I believe they were slightly smaller. I'm hoping the ones I have now are a higher dose because it took a 4 week course to clear it up last time, and now I have a 2 month old daughter and have to stick cotton balls in my ears when she cries or I black out for a second from the pain. Last time my ear drum ruptured, I'm really hoping I've caught this early enough to prevent that happening because that kind of pain was atleast 100x worse than labor. ## Based on the colors which you are describing for the capsules it sounds like you have the Amoxil brand of...

I always have itching, it's non stop. I've been to the Dr to be tested for herpes and it isn't herpes. I have a bad odor after having sex with my boyfriend and then days after I start itching and bubbles appear. Been going through this for the last 25 years and no Dr has found out why. Could it be a UTI causing me to be like this? Help, I'm sick and tired and want to give up. Like really give up. I want some peace down there.
