Best to see Dentist: A dentist may put you on antibiotics, but this is not the treatment which is needed to resolve your situation if i understand your issue correctly. Please see a dentist as soon as possible to avoid further pain, tooth destruction and or a possible root canal or loss of your tooth. Most likely an x-ray and dental exam will provide information to resolve your situation.

Can you smoke cigarettes on amox clav 875 mg?

Yes, but u shouldn't: As a doc, I am anti-smoking so i won't say go ahead and smoke. But smoking is not likely to interfere with that antibiotic--branded as augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). I hope you get better fast for reason you are taking the antibiotic, and that you consider quiting smoking. Good luck.

Yes: You can drink anything, but why are you taking an antibiotic? Small amounts will not cure anything and may sensitize you to penicillin drugs.
