can I start taking the penicillin before the test results arrive anyway?
It's much better to wait and the throat culture is usually a same or next day wait only. Penicillin use over time can result in your body developing a sensitivity or an allergy making it a non-option for future use. Only use antibiotics when you know they're needed and you can beat avoid becoming resistant to them so that when they are truly needed you get the best help. Hope you feel better soon.
