I have a tooth abcess that came up last night, and have been given amoxycilin by the dentist to start right away.
So far the pain isn't too bad so I'm wondering if I could leave starting the antibios until after the marathon. Im taking ibuprofen but not too often.
I'm worried about getting the runs from the antibiotics, or increased wheeze [already have mild asthma].
Anxiety is through the roof and so any advice would be lovely.
Yes I would start now. Running marathons tends to hit your immune system pretty hard so you don't want to be facing a compromised system with an infection ready to take hold.
Not all antibiotics give you the runs everytime anyway.
