Hi, i expect a telling off here, but i need help with this as well.
I had a wisdom tooth extraction today. I was prescribed Erythromycin and i haven't taken it because i have a phobia about being sick. The latter being a side effect of Erythromycin. The dentist said he was just being safe and that it is up to me whether i take it, but that he thought there was a slight infection there.
Thing is, i won't take this antibiotic. I don't mean to be difficult but it's known for making people sick. It's a real phobia, i've had all my life.......
It's the weekend. What alternatives are there? I may have allergy to Pennicillin......but sure i've had Amoxycillin in the past....???
Anything i can do over the weekend to prevent infection? Gargle with salt water? i'll do whatever else is advised.
Am i being extremely stupid here, or is it just a precaution and i can stop worrying.
Thanks for your time
