See dentist


Your brother needs to see a dentist to see what is causing the redness and painful areas, sometimes antibiotics cause the normal bacteria of the mouth to die and allows fungal infections to develop, he may need a antifungal to help with the sores and the numbing meds like Oragel can increase the soreness and sore spots

All antibiotics not equally effective. First choice in non-allergic patients is penicillin.

No


Antibiotics are not analgesics , you need ibuprofen or Tylenol if is over the counter med for pain . Antibiotics help to diminish the infected area but only over a period of time not with just one tablet

Depends


if you are a male then, no waiting if you feel up to it. If you are a female and you are on a course of antibiotics (particularly a penicillin) don't count on the effectiveness of oral contraceptives you have taken. "the pill" can be rendered less effective by the antibiotics. but again, if you feel up to it and you are aware of the antibiotic/"pill" interaction-no waiting.

Yes.


You may be masking the painful tooth underlying problem. The problem may be simple or it may be serious. You should have an urgent dental consultation.

Don't drive (car or bicycle) or operate any machinery if you're taking Vicodin. You may not feel disoriented at all but it will slow your reflexes so you won't be able to react normally in an emergency or sudden situation. An effective alternative is 2 Tylenol (acetomenophen) taken together with 2 Advil (ibuprofen) every 4-6 hours. Continue taking your antibiotic until completely gone.

Pain to teeth


Most dentists will give you antibiotics for the infection and give you pain meds while treating the infection and Vicodin will help mask the pain. It is important to to let the antibiotics work to help you with the infection and it takes 24 -48 hours for the antibiotic to work. Then it is really important to get treatment for the tooth

No Contraindications


Those 2 medications are not known to be contraindicated with each others use; however, I agree with the other doctor above that this behavior may not be good, unless you have already seen a Dentist and were prescribed these medications for an imminent procedure that will fix your obvious tooth problem. Make sure you are taking care of yourself, get your tooth fixed ASAP-you don't want to lose it

Antibiotics only calm the infection down. The source of the infection needs to be treated, and that can mean a filling, root canal or extraction.

Act now


ANY time there is swelling that accompanies a known infection source there is a risk that your body's immune defenses are reaching a limit. Wisdom tooth swelling/infection can be dangerous. Call for an appt to be examined ASAP. Make sure you explain "swelling present" and get started on treatment--either surgical or pharmaceutical. Good luck.

Antibiotics will not cure a tooth abscess. The best you can hope for is some temporary relief. Get to a dentist for a cure

Solve the problem!


If you recently had dental work, call your dentist. If you didn't, call your dentist. Like a splinter in your finger, dental pain exists because there is a problem. Would you take pain medication and antibiotics to manage the splinter? Not likely: you would take it out! Don't just medicate, solve the problem & be well :-)
