Abscessed tooth infection cefdinir

I went to MedDirect early Monday morning crying I was in so much pain. I've had an abscessed tooth for a little over 6 months now, but financially we are barely making it paycheck to paycheck, so I haven't been able to get it pulled. They said it would be a couple hundred for just the x-ray, and $375 just to get that one tooth out. So, I couldn't get it done. I was crying Saturday and Sunday because of how bad it was, plus I also have scoliosis that I haven't been able to be seen for and I could barely move for three days prior to visit. I tell him my issues, he looks inside my mouth, prescribes me ibuprofen and was going to do penicillin, but Penicillin always makes me puke, Amoxicillin is fine though...which I told him, but he prescribes me Cefdinir 300mg, which was $9...

Can you switch from Z-pack to Cefdinir

I took a z-pack and want to find out how long I should wait to start the antibiotics (cefdinir) my dr. has now prescribed? ## There is usually no issue and you should start it as directed by your doctor.

Broke post crown had root canal is it infected

My post crown broke. The crown been in 3 years had root canal when crown put in.. The upper gum is real sore, no insurance. Is the soreness a possible infection and will CEFDINIR help till get money to have fixed.I called dentist and they will not use my crown to save cost so I can afford to get it fixed???? ## Without seeing it, it is hard to say, but there is a chance that it is infection and requires an antibiotic. The FDA lists typical antibiotic side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. There is no way they can promise that they can use the existing crown, because it might not be viable to do so, the tooth may need to be extracted. Do you have an emergency dentist in your area that can check it out for you?

Safe to take expired cefdinir?

I have an abscessed tooth and can't get to the dentist until later in the week. I found some cefdinir in the cabinet that's 3 yrs old. Is it safe to take it? ## It does not become dangerous, once expired, but the FDA does report that it may lose some efficacy, so there is a risk that it may not work as well as it did, when it was new, which could cause you to develop antibiotic resistant bacteria. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. Has there been any change? Have you seen your dentist, yet?

cefdinir 300 mg capsules

can you take this for a tooth infection ? ## Hi, Bonnie! It's usually only used to treat some specific infections. There are others that are much more effective at treating dental infections. Have you consulted your dentist? If you have a dental infection, not only do you need an appropriate antibiotic, but you need to have the underlying issue that caused the infection corrected, or the infection will just keep returning. ## Hi, I found several capsules, purple/teal, which I know is an antibiotic. Can you tell me what infection this is used for? There are also several triangular pills, 0425 yellow on one side, US on white side. US. Can you help?
