Safe?: All Meds have side effects, even OTC. Infection potentially more dangerous than the antibiotic. Did you inform your Dentist about your reaction to Zpac? Zpac didn't "give" you a "nerve disease," you had an untoward reaction to the medication. Please discuss this carefully with your primary care physician.
