It is a different antibiotic, but there is always a risk of discovering that you're also allergic to it. People allergic to one medication tend to find out there are others they are allergic to and if you don't have an infection, taking it could cause you to develop antibiotic resistant bacteria. Thus, you should only take it if your doctor or dentist confirms that you do have an infection.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I have a really bad tooth infection and my cheek is really swollen. My brother in law gave me Pota-Vi-Kin Penicillin V 400,000 U. How many and how often should I take a day to get rid of this swollen cheek?

Re: can I take levofloxacin 500mg for tooth infection?

Yes. If the tooth is infected. Clean and rinse your mouth out with a mixture of baking soda and lemon juice; and take 2 or three days worth of the following medication: (1 / levofloxacin 500mg) + (1 / regix) + (1 / ampiclox 250mg) + (1 / arinac forte).

Take these medications for 3 days and one time a day after 5 minutes of eating dinner.
