Amoxicillin


Amoxicillin is usually for 7-10 days for a dental infection. This should be prescribed by your dentist for correct dosage and duration

Depends


Please see a doctor first to determine the exact problem and the extent of it. Usually amoxicillin is 500 mg 3 times a day. But if the infection is severe, other medications will be considered.

Possibly


Antibiotic is given to treat the infection. If the size of the infection decreases, the discomfort should be alleviated. Antibiotic alone does not directly address the discomfort.

Amox or Penicillin?


Both are commonly prescribed effective antibiotics but it won't matter which one you take as without appropriate dental treatment to remove the cause of the infection, you won't resolve the problem. This requires professional dental treatment.

Perhaps never


If the infection is mild and no abscess has formed it should respond very quickly, assuming that the bacteria causing the infection are sensitive to amoxicillin (which is quite likely). If more than 48 hrs have passed without improvement strongly suggest you go back to the dentist for reassessment.

Yes


Unless not directed to do so by your OB/GYN who performed the D&C I would not discontinue the medication. A simple to your OB nurse would probably give you the conclusive answer. Good luck on your recovery.

Can do


While there is no harm taking Bactrim and amoxicillin together, I'm not sure that it's necessary. Also, if side effects develop you won't know which medication is the cause. I think it's best to consult a dentist in the long run.

Can Amoxicillin be used for an infection of a tooth ? I didn't take them all like it says to on the bottle but I don't remember why I have them. The date on the bottle says 04/19/2011, I don't remember going to the doctor so the only thing I can think of

The dental infection will respond somewhat to the amoxicillin. You really need to see a dentist to properly deal with the problem, cavity or abscess. Antibiotics by itself will not solve your problem. Best wishes.
