I have to go to the dentist immediately as I have massive tooth pain. Can I take All antibiotics???

Also, what if the pain gets so awful that I need pain medication??? How do I deal with that? What does one do?

Please help. Tks.

Antibiotics are fine. Once you've been on an antibiotic for 24 hours or so (usually) the pain will subside as it's the infection (usually) that's causing the pain. so hopefully you will be able to make it with just motrin or aleve for pain. If not - check in with your Subox doc. Usually they'll take you off your Sub and switch you to pain pills (usually something pretty strong in order to override the Subox). After your dental prob is resolved, you'll go back on Suboxone according to your docs instruction (likely will have you wait 24 hrs post your last pain pill) and all should be fine. Try not to worry. Hope that helps.

Yes I'm on antibiotics now for major infection worse pain ever. U don't need pain meds unless your legs get chopped off. I've been threw major tooth problems with NO pain meds lots of ice. We are trying to break the cycle of Pain meds!!!!! EXCEDRIN works wonders.

Well said Ronnie! I am always explaining to addicts that most people go through entire lives without taking a schedule II narcotic! And NOBODY who is not an addict would go to the ER and expect opiates after 'hurting their back shoveling snow'. Yes, ER's give away a shot of demerol just to get rid of the person, but that doesn't mean it is proper treatment.

Going on Suboxone generally means realizing that opiates are not the answer for anything short of surgical pain, or perhaps the pain from a bad fracture. People do not take narcotics for sore muscles-- except us addicts. That has to change if a person is going to make it work on Suboxone.

I was taking an antibiotic (clindamycin) which caused these awfully annoying "ticks" or twitches in the muscles in my body. In fact, I would wake up out of my sleep with all the jerking. This happened on two separate occasions and ceased upon my cessation from the said antibiotic. I dont think it's dangerous, but to me it was very annoying. Anyone else heard of this?

It depends on antibiotics to antibiotics. I think you can take antibiotic for massive tooth pain and remember tot ell your doctor which antibiotic you have taken. Then he will not give any medicine to you which may react to the antibiotic badly you have taken.
