Toothache and amoxicillin

I have some sort of tooth infection - was very painful yresterday so went to emergency dentist and was prescribed amoxicillin. Have taken three of them (meant to take 3 a day for 5 days) but they are making me sick and totally worn out.

I think I would prefer the toothache to this (am seeing the dentist on Tuesday). I know you should finish a course of antibiotics, but I have no urge to be needing to stop the car so I can be sick. Is is very bad to stop a course part way through?

The dentist prescribed them but I suppose my GP can prescribe me something else can't they?

Will phone them tomorrow.

Please DO NOT go to your GP. it is a DENTAL problem, so see a DENTIST. GP's have NO dental training or experience. go back to your dentist. ring them tomorrow, not your GP. please. GP's get very pee'd off about this. honest.

rant over. sorry.

I have heard smile.

Pain is better than it was now, and having not taken any AB since this morning I am not feeling sick.

I will talk to my proper dentist on Tuesday
