Hi to all of you with toothache and may you solve it fast and successfully.

Last couple days it was a hell for me and I have been checking out the forums for help and today I am finally pain free, and maybe my input helps someone down the road.
On Tuesday I had root canal on my canine done, got the prescription by endodontist for antibiotics( clindamycin hcl) and picked them up from pharmacy same day.
Now, since I always try to avoid drugs, I didn`t take any until ewning of next day, since tooth started to hurt. Next day Thursday morning woke up with a pain and my tooth was very sensitive( infection) so I took second tablet. Then I decided to google clindamycin hcl to see what I am taking.
Now, this medication had plenty of bad feed back, I mean BAD.
So, I decided to try without antibiotics and let me also add that I am allergic on the aspirin pain killers.
Huh, by the end of the day I was walking on eyebrows from pain.
Tooth was infected, pain up to the maximum. Finally my wife said I should try Tylenol(aspirin Free), took it and we were stand by for ER in case of allergy reaction.
Two doses of Tylenol got me through Thursday night. Friday morning I started taking antibiotics and Tylenol and it was hell of a day.
Let me also say that I tryed Clove oil, tea bags, ice packs, Vanilla oil, you name it and nothing helped.
It is Saturday morning and I am sitting and writing this, buzzed from drugs and pain free. Tooth is recovering nicely.
So please follow instructions from the doctor in future and take care of your health most importantly, without hesitation.
