Reviews for Clarithromycin to treat Dental Abscess
"I have been fighting face swelling and shooting pain for over a month. Went to many different doctors they all kept telling me sinus infection , rebound sinus infection blah blah finally got tired of the constant pain and swelling and the horrible congestion. I started researching and found stuff that led me to believe it was an abscess I set up a dentist appointment up the next day which was yesterday. After Dr looked and did a set of X-rays determined it was a sinus infection not treated properly that in return infected my mouth. He gave me Clindamycin 150mg 1 pill every 6 hours. After the first pill I could feel the congestion breaking up and as gross as it sounds the abscess started to drain! At last somethings working"

Biaxin (clarithromycin): "I started taking Biaxin two days ago for both a dental abscess and chronic bronchitis. So far I haven't noticed a difference but it may take a while. Horrible taste in my mouth and very sleepy. All in all it's not a bad medication so far."

"I never had a tooth abscess before, I think child birth compares but it went on for days. Finally called my dentist, he prescribed Clarithromycin and it worked wonderfuly. I'm taking it again right now for a sinus infection, I requested it when I went to see my doctor. Day 2 and the terrible headache with the infection is gone. Clarithromycin will be my antibiotic of choice from now on."
