Abscess tooth side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess tooth side effects


Avatar n tn I have been on amoxycillin and now clindamyacin over the last three weeks (no rash/visible side effects. My Dr twice-said to go back to DDS/give Rx time). Twice the swelling seemed to be going down, then flared up again. I now realize that the night before 2 of my 3 flare-ups, I had a glass of strawberry lemonade and wonder if my problem might be allergy-rather than infection-related, or both; for the last 5 days I've avoided citric acid and started taking Benadryl, but with no results to show.
Avatar f tn Just recently some pus drained from the tooth. He has also had a low grade fever. I am wondering if a side effect from a long term abscessed tooth can be blood in his semen. A doctor put him on Amoxicillin 1500mg every 8 hours for 6 doses then 500mg every 8 hours for 14 days. Is this proper treatment?
Avatar n tn As sugar is absorbed right through tissues of the mouth, acidic chemistry swaths the tooth. It can eat holes through the side of a tooth and concentrates at the root tip. Sugar in coffee, donuts, coffee cake, bread, soda, candy, tea, cereal, chocolate, ice cream, jelly, honey, dried fruit, fresh fruit, grains, roots, etc, all contribute to blood sugar levels and the state of the cells.
Avatar m tn m offering this information to you, on the basis that every single person who has tried it, after my recommendation (this is not online, it is in my own town here) has experienced very positive results. No side-effects, no harm, what-so-ever! If you have any better alternatives that work, naturally you wouldn't be posting here, right? If you have any questions or need details on anything let me know. Cheers!
Avatar m tn He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects. How long do these usually last before the dog gets used to the medication? I'm hoping that these are not signs that something else is wrong, though I am aware of the possibilities.
Avatar n tn I've had an abscess on my gum area that started in my tooth for about a week. I've been on antibiotics (clindamycin 150 MG) for 5 days with painkillers. I've been swollen the entire time and have knot on my jaw. The dentist wont lance it because it hasn't come to a head yet. So, do I go to urgent care, or wait it out to see if it will ever come to a head? Thanks!
Avatar m tn She thinks 44 pills is a lot. Is it? How bad would the side effects be? Do you think she should go on the camping trip? She's been pretty tired lately since she can't eat much due to her toothache.
Avatar f tn Omnicef can be used too if you're concerned about the clindamycin's side effects. Omnicef, like all other antibiotics, can have similar side effects since it kills both good and bad bacteria though.
Avatar n tn i have a broken tooth with intense pain. i have a swollen face and lip on the left side of my face. i went to the er yesterday morning and they gave me clindamycin hcl 150 mg and ibuprofen 800 mg along with oxycodone apap5-325mg.
Avatar f tn First I am worried about taking the later one due to all the horrible side effects. So far no side effects, its been day 4 of taking them. My swelling has gone done but I still continue to have some pain around the other teeth ? Is this normal and how long will it be before I am feeling like myself. This has also left me so depressed. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/664046'>tooth abscess and swollen cheek</a>.
Avatar n tn Not to keep rambling, but just an update. I stopped taking the Amoxil yesterday because I don't like the side effects of lightheadedness. Right now, it doesn't hurt to bite down, but the bone under my gums above the tooth is sore to the touch, and it feels like I have a lot of soft tissue puffiness in my jaw and inside my mouth right now, plus my lymph nodes are still swollen and hurting.
Avatar f tn I've always been a worry wart, but never like this. The dentist didn't mention an abscess, just a tooth infection. Are they the same thing??? It's really weird, bc I don't have pain or swelling in that area.
Avatar f tn I also suffer from heart failure and suspected blockage. I was prescribed Keflex. I was afraid to take it because of the side effects, in particular when I read about hallucinations. Two weeks later, I ended up in ER with suspected heart attacks. This happened twice. I have no idea if this was related or not. I read afterwards that it take about two weeks to affect the heart, which was the time frame here.
Avatar m tn I thank everyone who participates in these forums, as guidance is very important. I noticed a small lump on the left side of my neck about two years ago. Unfortunately I dismissed and forgot about it for some time. I rediscovered the same lump about six months ago, and it has been on my mind ever since. In the last three or so months I have been experiencing pain on the same side of my neck, although the lump itself isn't sensitive.
Avatar n tn I'm told that they won't do any harm so, unless you have side effects, there's not a downside to trying them. Your Doc might even have samples. This is something you can do now and it reduces the amount of work the pancreas has to do which will reduce any damage if damage is occuring to your pancreas again. A low-fat, high fibre diet can make a big difference to people with abdominal pain.
Avatar n tn I'm a 48 year old in good health with regular dental visits and good brushing habits. A molar (upper, 2nd from back of mouth) gave me some pain this weekend while drinking coffee. I saw my dentist this morning and he prescribed a course of penicillin. There was no obvious outward signs of infection and an x-ray barely showed decay or abscess and just at the tip. This molar has amalgam fillings. I'm scheduled for a cleaning and X-rays in November.
Avatar n tn I was given a prescription of more darvocet and amoxicillin 500mg. well the amoxicillin gave me bad side effects, nausea, vomitting, diarehea. so i stopped taking them. i notified the dentist 10/9/06 of the amoxicillin side effects i was then told i probably didn't need them and not to worry about taking another antibiotic. on 10/10/06 i awoke to find my face on the left side swollen and painful.
Avatar n tn The surgeon showed me photos of the abscess and said it was a large one. The tooth was fine for about 6 months as well as the nasal pain. But now there is once again a swelling and the site of the swelling feels uncomfortable. Moreover, I have been feeling easy fatigue and little ability to concentrate or focus effort. I researched the material the surgeon used for the apicoectomy (MTA for retrograde root filling) and found that it contains small amounts of arsenic in it.
Avatar f tn Of course I still had days where anxiety would nag away at me, but I was starting to reach our to friends, be more social then I'd been able to be in months and start enjoying life again. I've been taking 50mg of zoloft for 6 weeks now. The first 2 weeks were filled with side effects from increasing the dosage, but I expected them and handled them with the help of ativan. Since then I've needed to take .5mg of ativan once a week or even every other week.
Avatar f tn sounds like you are feeling effects of Paresthesia ... if they pulled teeth from the bottom, your mandubular teeth are very close to the nerve, it is possible that he could have caused some nerve damage.... the numb feeling should go away in a few weeks....
Avatar f tn We have a Westie that (rescue, don't know whole history) we had one tooth removed because of an abscess. This was about a year ago, so going from memory, I don't recall any side effects other than a "bandaid" over the site of his IV.
Avatar f tn Sounds like an abscess tooth. Are your gums swollen or your cheeks puffed out like a chipmunk? You should go to the dentist. Being pregnant isn't so great on teeth. Take extra care of them.
Avatar n tn Two common antibiotics, metronidazole and baytril can have neurological side effects, but all drugs of any kind have some side effects. Additionally, many antibiotics cause a die-off of the good bacteria in the stomach and intestines which can cause inappetance, and vomiting and diarrhea. I will often include a probiotic to any protocol in which I must use an antibiotic. Probiotic's include acidophilus and all the good bacteria like those found in Activia yogurt.
Avatar n tn Had that taken care of but then I started feeling weird things along the right side of my head (same side as the tooth). I asked the dentist if it was possible the infection spread up into my head or brain & he said no. The sensations feel like a constant dull pressure sitting on the top right side. It tingles a little & sore to the touch. I started having panic attacks again & I'm a mess. Went to hospital last week, had a CT scan on my head, results were normal.
603946 tn?1333945439 Chiropracter relieved pressure on TMJ points on left side- 8/28 but still slight throbbing- I want to save this tooth- I did take a few PenVK last week just in case ear was infected..... abscess? malocclusion? What all can we try before we go to oral surgeon for extraction? re try root canal?
Avatar f tn (which i don't know if they mean the neck or the head) my questions is what are the side effects to both these procedures?? and will i ever be normal again? to work?
Avatar f tn However, here lately I have had really bad side effects. First off, the first big problem was my ear. I had the cartridge on my right ear, all of the outside, turn rock solid. It hurt for almost 2 weeks, and I had an appt with my treating Gastrologist, and he did not pay attention to me, when I was expressing side effects. He did not even look at my ear. Now, today, while I was in class, my ear drained out about a tablespoon of blood.
579258 tn?1250652943 Last night I went to the ER for a dressing change that involves unpacking and repacking 2 newly drained abscess areas. As I arrived, the pain became sharp and shooting and I was not able to sit; no position was comfortable. We went through the normal check-in process with standard questions, BP check and an ID band and was taken back to an exam room. Once into a hospital gown and a sheet, I laid down on the table with my head elevated and my knees bent.
Avatar f tn I'm seventeen, in orthodontic care, and I have a severe abscess on my second tooth (the back-most one on the right, as I don't appear to have wisdom teeth), bad enough that the endodontist prescribed a one week course of amoxicillin twice daily, 875 milligrams per pill. My new dentist has recommended a root canal, but combined with the crown and buildup filling, it may well be about as expensive as an implant.
Avatar n tn I really don't want to take antibiotics, the side-effects are awful. What happens if I don't have an oral surgeon look at it?
