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, ...

is amoxicillin still good after being in the fridge?
1 Reply RSS
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 believe i may be coming down with strep throat. My kids are all finishing up their antibiotics for it now. I have an old antibiotic script for amox from 12/15.. Would it be safe for me to take now? ## Hello, Cloe! How are you? It shouldn't be expired yet, if it was just prescribed this past December, however, it would be best to see your doctor to be sure whether or not you actually have an infection. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Amoxicillin powder without the capsule
2 Replies RSS
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.

Antibiotic ## Ok I know this is probably the wrong place to past this question and ask for answers. But I love to help people on this site and I am hoping some one on here will help me out. Here is the problem: I went to the doctor yesterday and I got my Tetnus shot and i got a full blood panel done. The routine. I got my results back today and I am shocked and scared. In fact, I found this out 3 hours ago and I still feel numb and stupified. My enzyme levels in my liver are pretty high. Higher than they shoud be. And my doc wants me back in a month for a Hepatitis test. I am very concerned and I was wondering if there is anything that can cause enzyme leves to be high that doesnt involve Hep. or any other life threatening diseases. I am in very much need of some help. Thank you. -Rando...
