Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin dosage dental

amoxil

Hi there, Amoxicillin in the preferred antibiotic in dental infections. The usual adult dosage is 500 mg given every 6-8 hrly.The dosage may be increased or decreased depending on the severity of infection. If you are having a dental infection or cavity it is best to get it treated by a root canal before the problem aggravates. See a dentist. Take care and regards!
My doctor gave me amoxicillin 500mg, for an infection he thought I had. And after taking it for a week I miscarried. I can't say it was due to taking the amoxicillin but was in the back of my head when it happened. I would call your OB and ask them first. Good luck!
THEY ENDED UP PULLING THE TOOTH SO HE DID NOT TAKE ALL THE MEDICATION. IT IS 500 MG. WAS WONDERING IF THAT IS TOO HIGH OF A DOSAGE FOR ME TO TAKE?
Amoxicillin is fine if it's the correct antibiotic. Dental infections can be from either an aerobic bacteria or anaerobic bacteria. Having the correct antibiotic is VERY important. I urge you to at least call your dentist for approval before you treat a dental abscess yourself. Amoxicillin may be fine, but you may need something like clindamycin instead. Also, it's very important that a FULL dose is taken for dental infections.
Apparently none of what we are reading is of any consequence to the conclusions of the safety of dental implants for the American Dental Association. Alot of the research reveals what can support the multi-million/billion?? dollar medical and pharmaceutical industry, I think. I was able to get the materials specification from the manufacturer of my dental implant in order to be tested for a reaction to these materials via the Melisa test.
2000 mg is the standard pre-dental amoxicillin dosage for individuals at risk for developing endocarditis.
3) Are doctors still recommending antibiotics before dental work? If so, what is the latest thinking on dosage and duration...I've heard that some people now just take one huge dose on the day of the procedure. 4) If I cut myself, does that also pose a risk of endocarditis?
He put me on Amoxicillin 500 mg three times a day for 7 days prior to the second operation and then added another seven days of the same dosage of Amoxicillin after. After the second procedure, he did another x-ray, and I noticed that there was a larger glob of filling material protruding from the tip of the root. The Endodontist didn't make any comment about it.
How would I be able to tell if I'm having an allergic reaction to the Amoxicillin? Or maybe a better question is how long would a reaction to Amoxicillin take to appear? This is the first time in 15 years I've been on *any* type of antibiotic so I'm not sure I'd even know if I was allergic to any.

I also have a concern with amoxicillin as I understand that H. pylori can rapidly develop resistance to antibiotics. Due to dental work I was on a 14 day, 500 Mg course of amoxicillin in December (no effect on the Afib). This seems like half the current recommended dosage for H. pylori. I am concerned that this may have been just enough to produce a resistant H. pylori. Any thoughts on this? Are there any alternate meds recommended if the amoxicillin is a problem?
Please tell me how progresive this is. Also, my doctor has told me to take 2 Gr. of antibiotics (amoxicillin) one hour before dental cleaning and 2 Gr. 6 hours afterwards. I have heard that the dosage of 2 Gr. 6 hours afterwards has been eliminated. Is this true? I don't want to take additional antibiotics if I don't need them.

I just hope I have the energy to go. I should be used to this dosage of Avonex and not do too badly. Next week I go up to full dosage. I wonder why your bronchitis is back? Are you taking more antibiotics? I used to get bronchitis a lot as a kid, and even with all that kid energy, it wore me out. I'm glad you're taking it easy It is a long flight from here to Florida, so you take good care of yourself.
I was told that I need to take antibiotics before dental work and any kind of surgery. I would like to know what else I would need to take antibiotics for. Is these a web site to go to that lists the recommendations.
The biggest lesson that i learned was that the heart doc was mad at the dentist because they did not pre medicate me before the dental work was done because he said that for some reason many dentists don't believe that we have to have antibiotics an hour before the dental work and immediately after and he said the the American Cardiology Institute and all of the other heart organizations have never changed that standard.

Originally prescribed Keflex, but I had an allergy to amoxicillin 1 year ago--1 hive and some facial swelling--post dental surgery.At that time, I was put on prednisone and amoxicillin post an extraction--per the oral surgeon -"it was routine". I am otherwise healthy. I have an infected hair follicle and Doc ordered Keflex--however 2% risk of cross allergy (amoxicillin) so he just called to say he was switching it to Levaquin.

Look at that scandal that just happened at my hospital, Cedar's Sinai, on giving that drug to Dennis Quaid's kids at multiple times the dosage. Although I concede that on-line pharmacys might have their problems from time to time, I just wonder if Big Pharma isn't doing a bit of a smear campaign, look at the amount of money they stand to lose if Americans just keep on getting fed up paying these EXORBITANT prices for drugs, with vast amounts of people not having drug plans.
I was just wondering--when it was time to finally stop taking all the antibiotics (Jackie, this is probably mostly you since most of us are still in treatment), is it a weaning off thing or a "well, now we are done" thing? I'm still on Mepron, Amoxicillin and Zithromax and planning to be for another month.
