Clindamycin for a toothache
1 Reply RSS
Can i still take clindamycin for my toothache? It expired 3 months ago. Is it safe? ## Hello, Tiffany! How are you? It is never a good idea to take an expired antibiotic. Since medications lose effectiveness over time, it may not completely eradicate the bacteria and could result in your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. It would be best to see your dentist for a new prescription, if an infection is present. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

I have been to the dentist got sent home with Clindamycin but I also have a sinus infection,Asthma and panic attacks.Is this safe for me to take 300 mg 4times a day?And will it work for both infections? ## It is an antibiotic, so it may help with both infections, the best thing you can do is try it and see. However, it generally isn't recommended for people that suffer from asthma. Learn more Clindamycin details here. Thus, I'd suggest you contact your dentist or doctor about an alternative antibiotic. What do you use to treat your asthma? ## I have COPD and my dentist just put me on cindamyacin 300mg 4 times for 7 days for infected wisdom tooth. He was unaware of my breathing problem. I have been on it for 3 days, should I discontinue and contact my primary care doctor ...

Bactrim for tooth infection
1 Reply RSS
I used Bactrim; it takes more time to work than clindamycin. It has taken four days for the swelling to go down, but it has gone down and is almost normal now. I have double strength pills and will take them 2x a day for ten days. I also used the clove oil on my gums and that is working very well. They are going from red to pink again. You can buy this a CVS or Walgreens in the toothpaste isle. I also have been taking four advil 2x day for the swelling. ## Hello, KLF! How are you feeling? I'm glad the antibiotic worked for you. How fast it helps really depends on the nature of the bacteria and the severity of the infection. The FDA lists the typical side effects of antibiotics as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything e... ...

2 Replies RSS
Hi there. I have a really bad tooth abscess; my jaw has swelled up. I was prescribed Mylan-Clindamycin 300mg,take 4 times daily. When will I start to see the swelling go down? ## Hello, Jakub! How are you? I'm sorry about the infection. The general rule with antibiotics is that if it's working, you shouldn't see any worsening after taking it for a full 24 hours and you should start to see improvement after a full 3 days of taking it. If there's no change after 3 days, you should consult your doctor. The FDA lists the typical side effects of antibiotics as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Jakub! I know it's been a few months since your post, but I'm in BAD shape, with a ... ...

for infection:bronchitis ## There are a few drugs that contain Clindamycin as the active chemical. You might want to check out Cleocin Info, as it is a name for Clindamycin. ## I am taking 300 MG Clindamycin HCL for an abscessed tooth ( abscess is in the root area of the tooth) for 48 hours. Dosage; 1 capsule every 6 hours and initially instructed to take 2 capsules immediately. So far I am still experiencing a high degree of pain and there appears to be little if any reduction in my discomfort. How long does or should it take for the pain to subside? Also, is this a good medication for my medical problem? ## I also take Clindamycin hcl 300mg the pink pill dan3120) i take 3 pill a day for my gum infection i suppose to take it for 10 day but so far i take it for 8 day already and still d... ...

I have a tooth infection and started taking clindamycin for it i have to get my teeth extracted in 6days. Will the infection be gone by then so i can have the tooth extracted? ## Hi Debbie, Sorry to hear about your tooth infection. I'm actually in the same boat as you, getting an extraction in the next month or so for an infected wisdom tooth. Most people get them taken out when they're young, but at age 25 I guess it's better late than never Lol. At any rate, most antibiotics such as Clindamycin, are often prescribed for 7-10 days, depending on the severity of the infection. But my guess is that the vast majority of the infection may be eradicated well within the parameters of that time frame, especially closer to the 7th day mark, when many patients are actually finished w... ...

Does clindamycin work for an abcess tooth amd when will tje pain stop my tooth hurts so bad and i dont have insurance to cover the cost and i obly work part time ## Hello, Cali! How are you? It may work, if it does, you should notice an improvement after taking it for a full 3 days. However, the issue is that it is not going to correct the underlying problem that caused the infection and it is going to end up returning. So, you still need to have the tooth taken care of by your dentist. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a nasty bridge that needs to be removed. One tooth under needs to be extracted. I have to wait about 3 weeks ti start this process and until then, am in a bit of discomfort. ... ...

can it be used after discard date ## It does not become dangerous, after the expiration date, but it will lose efficacy, meaning it won't work as well to treat an infection as it did, when it was new. This does create the possibility of developing antibiotic resistance. Therefore, you should see your doctor for a new prescription. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I can't afford a doctor but exp was a year ago. Will they hurt me? Woke up with a tooth abscess and that's y they were given to me in the first place.

can this also be used for an abcessed tooth? i was given this for a staph infection and then my antibiotic had to be changed so i have some left. now i find myself with a horrendous toothache and an abcess and no money, insurance, etc. Just wanted an opinion, not anything that could get anyone in trouble.... thanks for your time... ## I have been using clindamycin for my abcess tooth also. Just started today, I have the same question. ## I used to work in a dentists' office. The dentist always used clindamycin for abcessed teeth. Make sure to see a dentist though, because if you just use the antibiotic and don't get treatment you will eventually loose that tooth. ## I ,in desperation, began taking clindamycin that my wife had for a bad tooth abcess of mine beginning on the 4th o... ...

abses toothpain

I have a bad abses tooth is keflex a good antibioti to take for it ## Although Keflex (Cephalexin) is commonly prescribed for tooth abscess, some patients believe that Clindamycin is a better option for these types of infections. In my opinion, it's best to stick to more natural options, such as Clove Essential Oil, to avoid many of the undesirable side effects that are associated with prescription drugs in general. However, it probably just comes down to whatever your doctor recommended for you and whether or not your body reacts favorably to it. I hope this helps! ...

how long before pain goes away using norco
1 Reply RSS
I am taking for pain of a tooth that needs to be pulled. Also taking clindamycin for infection. When should I feel relief from pain? ## The Norco should help about 15 to 20 minutes after you take it, though it may not reduce all the pain, depending on the severity of the infection. The FDA classifies it as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Once the antibiotic starts taking effect, then the pain will greatly ease and you should start seeing improvement from it in about 3 days. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Learn more Clindamycin details here. Did your doctor or dentist prescribe it for this?

Additionally, if it is a dental infection, then... ...
