I was prescribed this (200mg 3 x per day) for a gum infection. I've just finished the course and there doesn't seem to have been any improvement. I'm not in any real pain, never was, but the swelling and redness is still there!
I was surprised not to have suffered any of the side effects, everyone warned me about, and I didn't drink alcohol. But it appears not to have worked, any advise, or should I just go back to the dentist?

Sometimes it takes a second round. Give them a ring, they might leave you a prescription without needing another examination.
