Had a root canal for a periapical tooth abscess. Apparently, there was significant inflammation around the abscess on X-ray. I was prescribed Amoxycillin (875 mg) twice a day but woke up with face swelling on the same side the next day. When I called the endodontist she changed the antibiotic to Clindamycin. Have only taken two doses but the swelling is still there. I am icing it occasionally and also taking ibuprofen 4-5 times a day.
Very worried about the cause of the swelling! Does anyone have any experiences or insights regarding this? Why do you think this happened and how long should I wait before panicking?
