I have an abcessed tooth and need some relief can I take the omnicef to help with the infection and pain
Omnicef is a cephalosporin so you should be ok to take since Rocephin is also a cephalosporin.
Isn't your dentist writing this script for you? They are pretty good that way with knowing how to prescribe the appropriate meds. If you have something left over, I wouldn't take it... you will need the full course to get that absess under control. Are you having a root canal when this is cleared up?
