i am taking penicillin vk for infacted gums to get a tooth pulled.But the med is making me sick.Could it be cause i am useing mouth wash
Hi, unfortunately this medication can cause sickness & general illness. Please read the paragraph i copied from the Drugs.com site:
"Gastrointestinal side effects have included nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. These side effects are more common with oral therapy. Pseudomembranous colitis may occur during or after therapy. Pancreatitis, intestinal necrosis, and blood in the stool have also been reported".
Try not to be too concerned about the last few side effects. It would be best to visit your doctor for a change of medication or an additional medication to treat these symptoms.
