Zithromax for tooth infection

Common Questions and Answers about Zithromax for tooth infection


Avatar f tn I tested positive for chlamydia 3 weeks ago and negative for everything else including HIV (test at 7 weeks). I was given Zithromax 1g, which i have previously had before for a single other STD infection a few years ago (also chlamydia). The symptoms of the chlamydia seemed to disappear completely after one week. However at the end of the 2nd week after treatment i began to get symptoms again.
Avatar n tn And no I didn't have any problem healing or with any infection afterwards, but - I went for quite a few visits for the planing and scraping. Actually , it was a huge relief when they finally got all that infection out because it had gone down to the bony structure and so da** painful I really wanted someone to just chop my head off. I had no clue I was that bad off dental-wise, but I was, and when those wbcs went down - whew.
Avatar n tn I checked with my PCP and got diagnosed with an ear infection, for which I am on the 4th day of Zithromax. He also gave me Vicodin for the jaw pain. The ear pain has settled down; however, the jaw pain (can't even pinpoint the tooth anymore) is solidly in my left jaw, molar area, and up to the top jaw as well. The pain responds somewhat to aspirin and Vicodin, but comes back in an hour or so after medicating. The pain itself feels like a vice grip coupled with a sharp throb.
Avatar n tn Yesterday morning I finished a 10-day dose of clindamycin for a tooth infection and 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.
242516 tn?1368227505 If your doctor is worried that you might have pneumonia, a chest x-ray can look to see if there's an infection, especially for those who have coughed for more than 3 weeks. With a viral bronchitis, you should avoid antibiotics especially zpacks (Zithromax / azithromycin) which are overprescribed for these symptoms , and can lead to side effects and adverse drug reaction such as rash, antibiotic drug resistance and yeast infections.
Avatar n tn If the cranial nerve damage happens ,which is typical with Lyme-every ER MD should think Lyme for Bell's Palsy symptoms, a cranial nerve issue, then your nerves (neuropathy), and ciliary function (moving mucus and infection out) creates the perfect environment for repeated infection and scarring, dysfunction. I have left ear, neck muscle, arm and hand numbness, and a negative MRI. Lyme disease is an epidemic people. Ask why. Read the book, LAB 257, by attorney Michael Carrol.
Avatar f tn Not sure if my flu symptoms have anything to do with my tooth or not, but I'm absolutely miserable and wondering if I should go to the ER. I've been on Zithromax for an antibiotic since Thursday. Merry Christmas. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn I have sent the note as you mentioned. I am on Zithromax right now for the strep and one doc I talked to said it would also take care of the lyme in an early stage.
Avatar f tn The doctor said he thought I had an abscessed tooth and an ear infection, and put me on antibiotics. He told me to see a dentist. The dentist told me that it didn't really look like an abscess but went ahead and performed a root canal because the tooth was sensitive to cold water. My gum got better after the root canal, but I was still feeling sick and having ear and face pain, as well as my jaw was hurting. I felt like I was really sick with an infection or something.
Avatar f tn I tell my doctor about it and he always says it must be some sort of infection and to come in for immediate blood testing while it's happening. Well, thing is, it ALWAYS happens late at night. There has been no rhyme or reason to this thing, either. But, the symptoms are always the same: extreme chills which induce shaking and teeth chattering, cannot warm up, no fever...ever.
Avatar n tn Swimmergirl is right, an infection is a significant concern, both bacterial in her case (staph and possibly MRSA), and even more worrisome would those like rodina with eye pain. Nose + eye pain is very worrisome for herpes infection of the eye which can be very serious. It needs immediate evaluation from an ophthalmologist. A painful red nose for the rest of you... that's not normal and worth getting your doctor to examine.
Avatar n tn The prednisolone and vitamin E would be for the auto-immune part of the disease and the Zithromax should cover the secondary bacterial infection. Zithromax is excellent for upper respiratory infections and it also is effective against Bartonella. I would continue with the Lysine for a possible Herpes infection just in case. It is just an amino acid so there is absolutely no contraindications.
Avatar m tn Your pain is most likely inflammation or infection in the bone around the tooth root. Approx. 10-15% of root canals fail.

Avatar m tn She got angry at seeing me yesterday but gave me the recomended CDC Doxycycline dose I had been under antibiotic treatment for staph, then tooth sbcess, then c. diff infection, then had teeth removed, then caught std. So she probably thinks I am a hypochondriac by now. Is there a strain of chlamydia that is resistant to Ceftriaxone and Zithromax, but susceptible to Doxycycline?
Avatar n tn I then put on Naproxen for chest tightness and Zithromax (Z-pak)for possible bacterial infection, and an albuterol inhaler. That seemed to work for the chest pain i was having besides the inhaler, which made me feel like i was much more swollen. So i finished the zithromax last saturday, havent had chest *pain* since then, however, i do have chest tightness still, and yesterday my throat felt so swollen i thought my head was swelling up. so again i went to the doctor...
Avatar n tn It is wierd that everything if happening all at once with you...The z pack is a good antibiotic..Zithromax. I am on that chronically for my lung issues, have been on it for a year and a half now. I am curious as to what your doc will ultimately say and do with you. You sound absolutely miserable, hopefully you will get relief soon. Take care, I will keep you in my thoughts...
Avatar m tn Neither the doctor or the nurse that came in and gave me seven pills to take stuck around long enough for me to ask a single question. I'm also on penicillin for a tooth infection and I'm not sure if I should take it with the other meds. The actual diagnosis was Urethritis which can be caused by other things I'm sure but I'm having no burning at all when I urinate and no discharge at all.
Avatar n tn The problems first manifested themselves as persistent headaches and pain/pressure between the eyes, in what was most likely some kind of infection of the ethmoid sinuses. Thankfully, that part stopped, but what I'm faced with right now is frequent mild pain in the maxillary sinuses, a persistent post-nasal drip that I can feel on the back of my soft pallate (over 4 months now), a seemingly abnormal fatigue, and a ringing in my ears coupled with some ear pressure.
Avatar n tn The typical cause of tinnitis is infection, usually around a back tooth. Early signs would not include fevor or swelling. I would find a dentist or oral surgeon near you and get a quick eval. They will probably put you on a 10 day course of antibiotics which should reduce the symptoms enough that you can go back and get a full evaluation to find the cause and remove it.
Avatar n tn (with him, 2 years ago) On November 30, I developed a bronchial infection and also had larynigitis. (I usually get laryngitis every winter for about a week). I was given Zithromax 5-day series. On day three of taking Zithromax, I developed a few small painless cuts and red bumps (small red dots) within my mouth. I also developed a mild case of oral thrush and my entire mouth became extremely sore and tender. The cuts and bumps were painless and disappeared within 2 days.
Avatar f tn I have been prescribed Clindamycin to clear up a possible tooth infection. I was wondering if anyone has had any heart rhythm problems attributed to antibiotics. I have pvcs/pacs, all tests, ekg, echo has come back completely normal. Im just worried about taking a new medication,, afraid it may cause the palpitations to be worse, better yet cause a dangerous arrythmia!! Any advice would be great!!
Avatar n tn I finally learned that I had an infected root canal in a maxillary tooth that was the source of my sinus infection. Unfortunately, with the nerve stripped out of the tooth I had no pain sensors and was oblivious to the infection until I had routine dental exam/x-rays. I had the tooth extracted and my sinus problems abated within a couple weeks. I was disturbed that the ENT Dr. did not consider this contingency when he did my assessment.

Avatar n tn During the beginning of the infection I started experiencing recurrent chest pain, and shortness of breath after exercise or even walking up steps or sometimes even while sleeping. I also noticed an increase in palpitations. I was on Keflex for 3 weeks prior to oral surgery (we were on vacation out of state and I was too ill to drive home for a while) followed by Clindamycin 10 days post oral surgery, a couple weeks later the chest pain came back and so did a very deep jaw pain...
Avatar f tn Hen he prescribed some medication and followed this I got one more additional symptom that is an white coated tongue..then I had gone for endoscopy test for my stomach and they said there is a scattered ulcer on the esphog which joins near the stomach..after I continued the medication my burbing problem gone away..but the dry mouth and white coated tongue still continuing and feel very uncomfort with mouth and throat pain..
Avatar n tn During the time of our encounters I have taken antibiotics. The first time was the week of 6-21, when I had a wisdom tooth removed and the Dentist perscribed a Z-pack which entailed that I take 2 pills the first day and 1 pill the remaining four and the other time was on July21st, after our last encounter I developed pain and a stinging sensation on the right side of my penis.
Avatar n tn What about the yeast infection? I have read that Antibiotics have yeast infection as a side effect?
Avatar n tn Hemobartonella has been implicated in cats with chronic inflammation and stomatitis. Giving Lysine (the amino acid) would help for a suspected Herpes infection, and the amino acid is very safe since it classified as a food component. Your cat probably has food allergies and/or environmental allergies since he has ear polyps. Rabbit and green pea would be the best food to try for a food trial. A low dose of prednisolone would also help.
Avatar m tn You may have a problem that looks like a sinus infection, but is something else. The medical model works for most people, and if you have a severe sinus infection, it could spread to other parts of your head or body, and it would be a good idea to be on antibiotics. Part I explains the Flip-Turn Sinus Flush®, Part II tells you why it works, Part III tells you how to prevent sinus problems. Good luck, and breathe free! INTRODUCTION Antibiotics often do not work for chronic sinusitis.
