I have a tooth infection and have been on keflex 500 4x a day for 2 days. My question is how long until I get pain and swelling relief?

Hi Nancy you should start to feel some measurable relief within the first seventy-two to ninety-six hours It is essential that you complete the entire course of the treatment for the infection to be totally resolved .... Hope you're feeling better soon.

I am in so much pain I think I'm Litterally going crazy.
Can't eat. Sleep, tried Tylenol advil motrin garlic, salt water rinse, cloves, oil of oregano and even vodka.
Pretty much ready to lose it and pull the effing tooth out myself.
