Dr. Sunia Lessing answered:

Abscessed tooth - been on penicillin vk 500 mg for 2 days now. When can I expect to see the "harder" areas of swelling start to go down on outer jaw?

Pen VK

Teeth
Typically antibiotics require 48-72hrs to become fully effective. If no changes occur after that period of time, call your dentist/endodontist, who will prescribe a different antibiotic. A root canal is needed regardless, as the cause of the abscess is coming from within the tooth, and the only way to treat it is via a root canal, or extraction.

safe to mix penicillin vk and food?

Penicillin

Abdominal_pain
It is preferred to take PenVK on an empty stomach for better absorption. However, if it causes abdominal discomfort, it can be taken with food and it will still be as effective.
