Nothing immediately: Amoxicillin is a fairly safe medicine. I do not think it can cause you any harm. It can occasionally cause diarrhea but that is self limiting, if at all.So be careful from here on and resume taking medicine tomorrow, unless your tooth problem is resolved ...Read more

I have an toothache can I take amoxicillin for 7 days to kill the infection?

I have an toothache can I take amoxicillin for 7 days to kill the infection?

Foolish: First, not all toothaches are the result of an infection & therefore, it might not do anything to resolve your pain. Secondly, even if there is an infection present, an antibiotic will only tend to contain the infection unless the actual source of the infection is also treated & removed.

I have an toothache can I take amoxicillin for 7 days to kill the infection... how long do it takes to start working?

Self Medication: Please do not self medicate yourself. The antibiotics will not solve your problem, which is a rotten tooth. There is absolutely no substitute for proper dental care. Even if the swelling goes down with the meds, it will come back quickly and in the end you will not only suffer more, but you will still need to see a dentist. Please call for an appointment. Pills do not fix teeth or gums. ...Read more
