Can You Consume Mefenamic Acid And Amoxicillin Together With Vitamin C?
Morning, I am 20 years old, I have a toothache, I am taking medicine for methanamic acid and amocixiin …. Can I take it with a vitamin C tablet
Hello Dedy, Thank you for the question.
Did you take the medicine with the advice of the dentist? Toothache can be caused by a variety of health conditions such as inflammation of the gums, periodontitis, tooth abscess, and tooth impaction. The treatment for each condition is not the same and to find out which treatment is most suitable for your condition, of course you must consult with your dentist first. Amoxycilline is an antibiotic class of drugs used to treat bacterial infections. If your toothache complaints are not caused by a bacterial infection, then of course the use of this drug will be in vain. Inappropriate use of antibiotics can cause bacteria that can cause infections to become resistant / immune to antibiotics and good bacteria in the body can die. As a result, if you later get an infection, you cannot use this antibiotic because you are unable to deal with the bacteria. Furthermore, you can also be exposed to side effects of the drug. Therefore, you still have to use antibiotics by the doctor's advice to comply with medical indications.
If you have taken the medicine in accordance with the doctor's advice, then you can continue taking the drug. There is no drug interaction between mefenamic acid, amoxycilline, and vitamin C. Therefore, you can take vitamin C together with the drug. Make sure you consume vitamin C in accordance with the rules of use listed on the packaging of the supplement. Meanwhile, it is recommended that you maintain healthy teeth by brushing your teeth regularly twice a day, you can also gargle with warm salt water to help relieve pain. If your toothache complaints do not improve after undergoing treatment, do not hesitate to consult your dentist immediately.
I hope this helps.
