I had a tooth pulled. Dr prescribed 500MG 3 times a day for seven days -- I am on day 7 and the area in which my tooth was pulled is still swollen and very painful.

I had a salivary gland infection and was prescribed 875.125 mg of Amoxicillin. I'm sure it works better for other conditions, but for me, my infection is still intact and I just suffered some moderate-severe side effects.

The day after I finished the course of pills I got a terrible rash which developed into hives from head to toe. The swelling took a day to go down and the red blotches will take longer to go.
