Advil with amoxicillin

Common Questions and Answers about Advil with amoxicillin

advair

Ok here is the deal, I went to the ER for severe facial pain and so the docs there get really pissy about me having a cavity and say go to dentist and prescribes me amoxicillin and some vicodin....okay i get home still in pain and have the meds filled at pharmacy..i take it and go to work and start feeling worser than when i first went in...so i tried to sleep it off and wing it with orajel and some other things like Advil.
I have just been diagnosed last week and have no started treatment, have an appointment with my doc on monday for that. But I ran into something that is a little odd... and I'm wondering if anyone has ever had any of the same problems or heard of them. On Sunday I woke up with a fever, and my lower gums were sore feeling. I didn't really look at them too closely cuz I just figured that I bumped them on something while I slept.
The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after. I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good.
What you really need to know is that there is no direct blood flow to the sinuses so antibiotics must be taken for 10 days as opposed to the usual week so hang in there, the nasal spray should do wonders with the Advil. Hope this helps!
When and if I find something that helps, I will post. Meanwhile, my thoughts are with all of us who have these crazy symptoms with no answers. Hang in there.
I was prescribed amoxicillin and I got better. Then, when I had just one dose left of the amoxicillin, I started to get sick again and they gave me the zpack (I've had problems before with recurrent strep). This one turned out to be a virus, but a week later I was still running a fever and went to the doctor. The doctor thought it was bronchitis and gave me biaxin to try and prevent pneumonia (I have an IgA deficiency and have had pneumonia 7 times and I'm 23, 4 cases in the past 3 years).
Advil is ok. Tylenol is preferred over Advil, however Advil is ok if you are mid pregnancy. Even my doctor confirmed this with me. There's a lot of people are plain right told no to Advil, only because of it's issues in the 3rd trimester. My Dr said if you do find Tylenol isn't working as well, and you feel the need to take Advil instead, try rotating between them. i.e.
Sometimes the pain is so bad I can barely swallow, and I've embarrassingly found myself drooling lately because of saliva buildup. Advil helps the pain. About four weeks ago, I had what I thought was the flu (severe body aches, fever, and dry cough) but docs diagnosed as strep throat, even though my rapid culture came back negative.
She has had a fever for 4 days now. The clinic does not know what is wrong with her. Further test are being done.
I took some Advil and one amoxicillin per day and the symptoms seem to be gone. But today, my nose suddenly bled and the tingling feeling in my nose is back.
Amoxicillin is similar to augmentin. Augmentin is basically amoxicillin with an extra ingredient in it. So you're basically taking the same antibiotic since you started with the amoxicillin. Your dentist can try another antibiotic such as clindamycin but its very strong and can cause stomach problems such as diarrhea, stomach pains, etc but clindamycin is great at killing oral bacteria. Omnicef can be used too if you're concerned about the clindamycin's side effects.
In the beginning of September, shortly after moving into a new apartment, I was very sick with what appeared to be strep, although a culture came back negative. I had fever, sore throat, white coating in my throat, sinus pressure, and headache. My doctor put me on amoxicillin which slowly helped. A few days after I finished the ten day treatment, my post-nasal drip and sore throat came back. It lasted 2-3 days, then went away. A few days later, it was back, and worse.
I had a sore throat in April, and the doctor gave me amoxicillin believing i had strept throat, without swabbing. The antibiotics didn't work until day 7 out of 10, and a few days after i finished the antibitocs it came back. A different doctor prescribed me cefaclor which worked after using it for 1 day. When I finished the prescription, a day after i had a sore throat. The doctor prescribed me cefaclor again, and once again when I finished the prescription, the sore throat came right back.
You have a right to all prior records, so find a new dentist, have their office send the x-rays and other documentation over (this will save you the x-ray fee!). Call the doctor and speak with HIM or HER directly and see if they agree with the insanity of the other doc. FIrst off, you should be on a much stronger Antibiotic and secondly, depending on your past experience with pain medications, you need at LEAST Tylenol with Codeine and a topical numbing gel. For now??

It was a molar that had 3 canals done with the first root canal many years ago but one was missed. I had pain off and on for about 6 months with sensitivity to heat. The pain was never severe this is why I waited so long to do something about it . The Root canal was done by an endodonist. That night I started having severe pain. I couldn't even touch the tooth it was so sensitive. They has started me on amoxicillin 2x a day.

They did a re-treatment on the tooth. My dentist had put on me on pain meds and amoxicillin. two days after the retreatment I was in horrible pain. I went back to the endo to have an I&D done. My face was very swollen for two days. They then switched my meds to clindamycin(2 rounds) The swelling has gone away mostly but there is still a little swollen area near the tooth where the I&D was done. Every day it is an improvement but it still hurts.
I was also given amoxicillin course with and Advil 600mg for five days. Two weeks later although the pain has been reduced it has not completely gone. I am studying dentistry and I think the cause is due to the canals not being cleaned properly to the root tip?
As of now, I have severe swelling on my right cheek, and still some pain. Was prescribed antibiotics only today, Amoxicillin 150 MG. In addition to that, I am also taking Advil 400 MG and Tylenol 500 MG every 4 hours, which do little to relieve the pain. Right now, my swelling is getting worse and is approaching my eye. Can it get any worse? What can happen? I am scared+nervous.
I had a root canal the day before yesterday and that day everything was fine. I went to work the following day and everything was fine, I was taking advil for the pain. then that night all of the sudden something didn't feel right and when i looked in the mirror that side of my jaw and down to my neck was swollen and it felt like there was a ball in there. Now I look like a freak. i took some amoxicillan that I had but it doesn't seem to be working.

One more thought on your Advil... taking the max dose for an extended time can do liver damage quicker than you'd think, especially if your liver is stressed out from Lyme and various medications. If you're up to the max dose and you're still in a lot of pain, it sounds like it's not working anyway. I personally would stop taking the Advil and try other non-harmful remedies, such as hot or cold packs and herbal anti-inflammatories.
Keep the area clean, do not use orajel, as it eats away at the new tissue forming (if your tooth is anything like mine, the gum is also very tender to touch) as well take some advil for the pain... Hopefully it clears up with the antibiotics, but if find within a few days it is not doing anything, call back and get a new antibiotic. I was on penicillin and it did nothing, they switched me to amoxicillin, and it helped more.
I've not been able to use my right side for ANYTHING, except brushing, and was hopful that it's getting better since I've been able to go on one Advil about twice a day, but it just flaired up again. I'm familiar with dental pains: I've had many root canals done, as well as periodontal surgeries (yes, peeling back roof of mouth to scrape bone, etc.) and even getting an area prepped for implent (which is waiting for later this year due to funds.
I have seen a neurologist who by looking at a list of medications that I gave him, diagnosed me with MOH, told me stop taking all medications, cut back on cafine and prescribed me with Topamax. Prior to the onset of the the headaches, I was taking Hydrocodone (10/500) a couple of times a week for my neck, Chantix and Allie. A few weeks after the headaches started, I started taking Tylenol, Advil and Excederine to try and get rid of the headaches to no advail.
I went to many doctors in the last 10 years,none of them really listened to me. I take percocet for pain,valuim for anxiety and was taking 30-50 advil a day. I have been to 2 mayo clinics and have never been tested for H.Pylori. Never even heard of it until a few days ago. I have researched all my symptoms on line for years looking for what could be wrong with me. My doctors say its just cronic pain, but i know different.
if her fever, without tylenol or advil, is above 102.9, she should be seen immediately, and if the tylenol or advil fails to bring the fever below 100-101 at it's peak effectiveness (which is about 1-1 1/2 hours after the dose), you should call your doctor as well. so sorry she's not feeling well, girl :-( I know how hard it is!
