I had a root canal done under my bridge on one tooth a week ago but the gum is still sore I'm on penicillin V potassium 500 mg every six hours. ?

Get Checked: See the Dentist and get checked. It may be normal healing response depending on the complexity of the problem. If still not resolved after the course of antibiotics, then additional treatment may be required.

Can I take vitamins during an antibiotics treatment with penicillin? Can you tell me a first aid for penicillin allergic reaction ? Thank you :) Carol

Can I take vitamins during an antibiotics treatment with penicillin? Can you tell me a first aid for penicillin allergic reaction ? Thank you :) Carol

Yes, and see below: So yes you can take vitamins while on antibiotics. The rationale is that when you go on system antibacterial agents like that you wipe out healthy flora in your gut and elsewhere. Vitamins, pro-vitamins and growth factors are synthesized by bacterial carpets (ie some B vitamins, riboflavin, thiamine, co-enzyme I & II and pyridoxine to name several). For PCN allergy; benadryl (diphenhydramine) & epinephrine. ...Read more
