Can I take antibiotics for tooth ache while breastfeeding?

Can I take antibiotics for tooth ache while breastfeeding?

Be careful: Side-effects of most antibiotics are not dangerous, an allergic reaction to a medication potentially is. Thus, while nursing all medications should be used with caution. When taking an antibiotic, always monitor your baby and look for signs of respiratory distress, irritability, diarrhea and rash. The most common side effect in breastfeeding infants is diarrhea, and this is to be expected.

My sister is brestfeeding her 7 months old baby. A while ago, she was having a tooth ache. Is it safe for her to take apain reliever?

Yes - tylenol (acetaminophen): Tylenol (acetaminophen) and advil are safe to take while breastfeeding, however this will only mask the underlying cause of the toothache which could be infection. I recommend visiting a dentist as soon as possible to determine the cause and solution for her toothache. Meanwhile however over the counter pain medicine will relieve her symptoms.

If I had nephrotic syndrome and I have really bad tooth ache, can I take antibiotics?

Find cause of pain.: Tooth pain is not always treated with antibiotics. Do not take them if the reason for taking them is not clear. You are correct in taking your kidney function into consideration before taking antibiotics. See your dentist for a diagnosis.

Tooth ache, been on antibiiotics 72 hrs and the pain has spread from my mouth to other places, help?

Tooth ache, been on antibiiotics 72 hrs and the pain has spread from my mouth to other places, help?

Self medicating?: If so, not a good idea. Who said you had an infection? You may have a deep cavity and a vital nerve... Antibiotics will do absolutely nothing for your problem. Call a dentist before your pain becomes unbearable. If you are currently under the care of a dentist and you have this problem, call the dentist.

What can I take to rid oxycodone from my system so I can pass a urine test. Took one from my friends for a tooth ache.

What can I take to rid oxycodone from my system so I can pass a urine test. Took one from my friends for a tooth ache.

You can't: Your body has its own timetable for eliminating medications, whether prescribed or not. There are no ways to hurry this. Generally oxycodone would be detectable in your urine for 3-4 days. Hoping you see a dentist soon, for your toothache.

What antibiotic can I take for an infected tooth pain is bad and for 2 days I'm feeling continuous pain in my jaw in the area that the tooth is in?

See a dentist ASAP: Antibiotics are rarely required and should only be used as an adjunct to dental treatment for infection since they may complicate further outcome. Take the NSAID OTC or Tylenol (acetaminophen) to control pain and see your dentist ASAP.

Can you take cipro (ciprofloxacin) for a tooth ache?

Can you take cipro (ciprofloxacin) for a tooth ache?

Maybe: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is an antibiotic not a pain med. If your tooth ache is being caused by an infection it may help but is not the antibiotic of choice for oral infections. Best thing to do is see a dentist to find the cause.

Will over-the-counter medicine for tooth ache that has benzyl alcohol in it cause false positive on 80 hr test I take?

Will over-the-counter medicine for tooth ache that has benzyl alcohol in it cause false positive on 80 hr test I take?

Toothache: OTC remedies will not cure infected tooth, only mask the symptoms as the infection worsens, spreads, and can farm other tissues. You have a more serious problem than alcohol residue in a blood test. Seek professional care now.

Can I take my hydrocodone for my tooth ache after I have took my one miligram Xanax (alprazolam) four hours earlier I have a tooth that has a cavity

Can I take my hydrocodone for my tooth ache after I have took my one miligram Xanax (alprazolam) four hours earlier I have a tooth that has a cavity

Central: Central nervous system and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these effects, especially in elderly or debilitated patients. Did your dentist prescibe your pain medication for you? Is your toothache following a dental procedure, or are you self medicating without being treated? Consult with the doctor who wrote this prescription. If your toothache has not been evaluated by a dentist, then I suggest you see a dentist to treat your problem.
