I am currently in absolute agony to the point i where i have no idea what to do with myself due to an infection around my upper right wisdom tooth.
I went to the dentist yesterday after having a small niggle for a day or so, he prescribed me 200mg metrodianizol and said there is a infection above the tooth.
After going to the dentist i have been in mind numbing pain, ive been taking the antibiotics along with 600mg ibuprofen (3x 200mg) & 1x 30/500 co-codamol. This only gives me relief for about 3/4hours and then like a freight train smacking me the pain is back throbbing!
Now i had a small infection on the left side of my face last year and was prescribed 500mg flucoxacillin which cleared it up within a few days, considering this infection is alot worse im wondering if the 200mg metro is too lower dosage to effectively reduce the infection?
My question is, how long will the antibiotics take to start working? Im bed bound atm as moving my head causes the tooth to throb horrendously!
Any advice is greatly welcomed and appreciated!
