... UTI,which I no longer have an also was a few months ago will it be safe to take this med.after I've stopped
As always talk to your doctor or dentist it is a powerful antibiotic. It has to be for what your doctor intended. Swelling in your mouth should be addressed so call him or her. Strange things I have seen people do with antibiotics and then there are other issues not addressed as if it is not right one for your sikment, I can cause other problems. Call your doctor now, trust me.
Of course, if it's in the realm of possibilities, you should see a doctor. I believe that if it were, the ppl that post on here asking questions about antibiotics for toothaches would have already taken that option. So, not going to bore you with that, as I personally hate those types of unhelpful "answers" and assume that if you're intelligent enough to post on here, you are aware that seeing a doctor is the best option. Having said that, my best answer to someone w a bad toothache and limited options would be to take the antibiotic available if you've taken it in the past. Hopefully, you have enough for a full regimen. You can look up the recommended dosage. Ciprofloxacin is not one of the main antibiotics prescribed for toothaches, but is sometimes prescribed for that. Short of having your particular bacteria cultured and tested for which antibiotic it is most sensitive to, there's no way to know for sure if it will help. Doctors usually don't know this either before prescribing one. A lot of the time, it is just trial and error-if one isn't working, they try another. So, to summarize, I'd say yes, take what you have. It's worth a try and anything beats a toothache.
