Hello, Mindy! How are you doing?

An antibiotic isn't going to help a sore throat, unless it's due to an infection.

And either way, they do take time to work, improvement should be seen after taking it for a full 3 days.

Learn more Amoxicillin details here.

After that if there is still no improvement, you should contact your dentist, because it may not be the right antibiotic to eradicate your infection.

And no, it isn't a good idea to try to treat yourself by taking something else that you have laying around. You may not have enough of it to complete a full course of treatment, which could lead to the development of antibiotic resistance.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Cipro is one antibiotic that most people on Methadone refuse to take. It blocks the absorption of Methadone and it seems to get rid of any Methadone I have built up in my body. I start going through terrible withdrawal...

Why would you even mention taking Cipro when there are so many other safer alternatives? Why do you want to take it is what I'm asking?????

Amoxicillin is a general antibiotic. Ciprofloxacin is mainly for internal infections eg. Lungs, STI., Bladder, Urinal tract, Kidney, etc.

Sounds like you didn't give it a chance yet, you really need to finish the prescription, it will still work after finished for killing the infection, the only instant pain relief is a pain pill, this is a big mistake people are making not finished there Rx. Your body will build immunity toward antibiotics and that won't hp you when you really need them
