I was diagnosed with strep pharyngitis on Tuesday and started Amoxicillin at 2pm. I still can't sleep or function. When should I feel better?
Antibiotic effect: Imagine millions of bacteria where, in a wave of antibiotic,- most of these bacteria explode, with their guts and toxins spilling out all over the place- it's a total mess. This mess attracts thousands of white blood cells, and an inflammatory response ensues that cleans this mess up- resulting in increased tenderness, redness, warmth, and swelling. The area will improve in a few days. ...Read more
Ive had a root canal several years ago and I am in agonizing pain it woke me from a deep sleep and hurts to touch. Will amoxicillin help?
I have two teeth broken in half and they are clearly infected. Daily pain, sometimes impossible to sleep. Spent $300 only gotten 10 days worth of amoxicillin. Insurance will not cover root canals until October (2 months away). What should I do?
Infected teeth: Antibiotic is only short term treatment to prevent spread of infection while you cure the infection with root canal/crown or extraction/implant/crown. You really can't wait for insurance to kick in. Talk to Dentist about staged treatment or payment plan. Contact Social Services for reduced fee clinics. Seek treatment at a Dental School. You have a dangerous infection. Seek immediate care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

May be resistant: Your sinus infection may not be responding to the amoxicillin, and you may need an antibiotic that will better cover your infection. OR your infection may be due to a virus (which arenot cleared with antibiotics) and just needs to go away on it's own. With your immune system being a bit weaker than others, I would get seen by a doctor again. ...Read more
