Common Questions and Answers about Augmentin and tooth infection


Help...had major toothache 10 days ago..x-ray revealed minor decay. Dentist said it should not have caused major tooth ache but set aug 2 for repair. woke up monday 6/25 with gum below tooth swollen..called dentist. I apparently had told them funny reaction to amoxicillian but could take an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>augmentinan> they ordered an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>augmentinan>.(I should write 72 memory loss) One an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>augmentinan> pill & I threw up for 12 hours finishing at 3 aM this morning! Suppositories Fam Dr called in helped...
I have a prescription for an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>augmentinan> xr that I have not yet begun, but don't know if that is appropriate for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>? I also now have a strange itching on lower arms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd all along my jaw line that is spreading each day. Not red, except when I itch. More like a goosebump feeling that doesn't go away. Is that possibly from the tooth problem? afraid my doc is tired of me calling...and there solution seems to be to just prescribe stronger antibiotics each time which I oppose.

Tonight is the first time in almost one month that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> has quieted down. I was on levaquin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd then <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ugmentin</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd no help. amoxicillan 500 seems to be doing soemthing. I am glad to learn how improtant ^7 is. Thank You for the link. I am going there now. I need to talk with your father. This is my 5th implant. Hubby says no more. Thank you so much.
I've been struggling a chronic infection for the last 5 months as result of a failed root canal (the infected root wasn't completely removed in the original procedure, and caused a MaJOR <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>). Because it was not properly diagnosed, I now have a bit of bone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> under that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. Luckily, I've found the right oral surgeon (who showed me the problem on xray) and am having the tooth removed next week, and he is going to clean out the area underneath.
If I were your treating dentist, I would look for other potential source of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. In the mean time, if <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ugmentin</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd clindamycin are not effective, I would try erythromycin family drug, such as azithromycin or clarithromycin , paired with metronidazole(flagyl). If itis possible, antibiotic sensitivity test can be done in the lab to determine which antibiotic is most effective for the cultured bacteria. Hope this helps.
a month ago we went in and the dentist did a whole new filling, after the procedure he warned me that baby teeth can be funny <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd to watch the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> because he get very close to the nerves. Sure enough later that day my son is in agony over the tooth. The dentist gave us a prescription for amox and said that he would now need to do a root canal (pulpatomy ?sp?). So on thursday we went to the dentist to have this procedure done. Several things went awry!
I made a dentist appt for the next day. That led me to an oral surgeon two days later <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I had that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd two upper wisdom teeth removed~! The oral surgeon said he cleaned out the abcess and stitched it up, and put me on penicillin. So, here I am 4 days after the oral surgery and these headaches are still as prevalent as day one! Could this indeed be a sinus infection caused by the abcess? Could I have ruptured a sinus during that coughing spell?
it didnt clear it up swelling went down fever went away but it didnt 100% clear it up the Dentist said to take him to the pediatrician that he was having too big of an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd wanted to know if he had immune system problems.No he doesnt but I took him &amp; she started him on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>augmentinan> he had an allergic reaction and had to be switched to omnicef and has just finished 10 days of that.
Yesterday morning I finished a 10-day dose of clindamycin for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd that seems to have done the trick. I had used Zithromax for 5 days a month ago for a sore throat but that didn't affect the dizziness. The allergist's interpretation for this is that either Zithromax was not the right type of antibiotic or the 5-day treatment was not enough. Depending on the result of the CT scan, I might have to continue taking antibiotics.
I was at work on Saturday night <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd a customer worked in Dentistry- he told me I needed a course of <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ugmentin</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 875 for 10 days. I went to a Pharmacy and explained the situation and they sold me the course. I started on Saturday Night and today (Monday) i've woken up with the swelling right up to under my eye. am I expecting the antibiotics to work too fast and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>willan> it go away over the ten days? I feel fine otherwise- just very concerned and a little scared...
It was an osteomyelitis he said, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd said he felt even better about removing that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. Now that both sources of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> have been removed, all doctors involved think I have a real chance finally with the antibiotics. But finding the right antibiotics that 1, treat the infection and 2, I don't have a bad reaction to has been difficult. I've tried an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>augmentinan> twice now and both times swelled up really bad all over, and my usually normal blood pressure (130) went up to 185.
I have suffered with anxiety also over the fear of death, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd today this chest pressure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd tight feeling in my throat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd shoulders could come from anxiety, but it truly feels like I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>willan> stop breathing at any minute and this is awful. I chew lots of gum due to my breath sometimes being bad and am worried this has spread infection through my whole body.
There is no relation between the sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd a lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. It is possible that there is an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> that has not cleared up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd the antibiotics that your MD gave you has helped the tooth.
If you have a fever you may be getting the dizziness and tiredness from that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd/or fighting off the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd/or from the antibiotics. Some species of E. coli <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd E. faecalis can be resistant too but usually they can find antibiotics to treat both of these at this point. I can't answer the question about what is the risk of not getting treatment as I don't know if you have a wound or urinary tract infection or if it is just found on the surface of the penis.
I am in the midst of phase I of a reconstruction of my teeth due to bruxism and/or TMJ. after the 4 hr. appt to prepare my upper teeth for the impressions, my dentist decided to fix a problematic tooth not specified in the phase I project. He found I needed a root canal, which he did. During the procedure, he said my "devital" tooth had abscessed and he worked on that.
I am in horrible pain ~ My question is should I try to get an emergency extraction of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> that is black <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd hurting? Can the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> be the cause of the ear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>? Please help, any advice is GREaTLY appreciated...I am scheduled for the root-canal re-do in 6 days but I don't think I can make it.
an initial root canal had been too shallow, had left some of the infected root in the tooth, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd allowed the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> to progress into a nearby <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>, into my jaw, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd all over my head. I became extremely ill for months (bedridden with the most severe flu-like illness). Both affected teeth have now been removed - under one the oral surgeon found a bone infection, he said the bone was mushy and he had to remove some of it.
Called Oral Surg -said it sounds like throat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> are 2 seperate issues - but I do not think so - I do not have any cold symp, only the Left Side throat is sore, within inch of infected gum. Rx'd an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>augmentinan> &amp; Diflucan. Today is 3rd day on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>augmentinan>, starting to work - still sore, red.
I have taken all the antibiotics and still have the cut (a little infected) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd the teeth sensitivity <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd still the sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. But now I have cloudy urine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd have been having night sweats and a pain in my right side just under my ribs. Not sure if any of these symptoms go together or if I have separate things going on. Do I need stronger antibiotics, wait and see or what? any suggestions????
It's getting unbearable, and i've called my oral surgeon only to be told that i probably just have a sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd to use a nasal spray. This seems to have only made things worse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd the smell has become stronger. I had never had anything remotely like this until after the teeth extraction, so i am thinking they're related. Please help me out, I work in a sales environment and this stink is putting both the customers and co-workers off.
It wasn't until my PCP took a culture from one of my sores that it was determined to be gram positive bacilli (nasty bacterial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>). I was prescribed <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ugmentin</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd it was gone after a few days when it had been around for almost 2 weeks. I was in agonizing pain &amp; couldn't wear underwear. The sores spread to my rectal area and up both sides of my labia. If you don't kill the infection, it could cause blood sepsis &amp; you can get real sick &amp; possibly die.
1. May 10: Penicillin VK 500mg tab (6 days) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Metronidazole 250mg tab (7 days) 4x per day for both 2. Jun 6: amoxicillin 500mg; 4 tablets immediately then 1 pill 3x per day (2 weeks) 3. Jun 21: an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>augmentinan> 875mg + 125mg additives, 2x per day (3 weeks) 4. Sep 16: Clindamycin 300 mg, 3x per day (16 days) I am concerned by the number and duration of these antibiotics courses. I was on 5 weeks of continuous antibiotics in June/July.
My sinuses seem to always feel congested when sitting or lying down followed (Sometimes) by sneezing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd my eyes watering. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd when I stand up after sitting for a while <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd most importantly during cardio exercises (whether outside or indoors but worse in the cold) though my nose runs a lot and sometimes I have "sneezing fits". all mucus is always clear though (no blood either) Tried: decongestants, cold pills, prescription an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>augmentinan> 875mg tab, prescription flonase 0.
It took longer for the clindamycin to work this time, and a new doctor concluded I may have developed some resistance to it after being on it for close to 2 months at that point. I was put on <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ugmentin</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>, but this did nothing for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd only made me swell (hands, abdomen, throat) after a few days. But, when I was restarted on the clindamycin, the clindamycin worked better that time - more quickly - so maybe the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>augmentinan> had been doing some good I don't know.
