Extreme tooth ache (infection) reoccurring of course. The only option to eliminate the pain and infection is a dentist. Of course I do not have that option right now. I haven't for a long time. Thus reoccurring tooth pain(infection). I have taken Clindamycin in the past for a tooth infection. But right now I only have the Sulfameth-Trimethoprim 800/160mg tabs. From what I have read it is not often prescribed for a tooth infection. But for a bacterial infection yes. So I am giving it a try. If it works I will update you. If it doesn't then it's a trip to the Emergency room for a numbing shot and a prescription for antibiotics that I might or might not be able to pay for. Tooth aches, abscess, or infection. Honest to God worst pain imaginable. That says alot Because I have been through some painful things in my days. Tooth infection by far the worst.

A tooth infection is also caused by bacteria, so this antibiotic may also help with it. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea.

However, you do need to have the tooth taken care of, even if you just have it extracted, or this will keep recurring.

Have I mentioned that I love my dentures and no longer having to deal with this stuff? LOL I had horrible teeth.

Are there nay medications that you take regularly? Some of them can contribute to dental issues.
