I went to the dentist June 30 monday she did and xray and we saw the infection she prescribed clindamycin 300mg 3 times a day and iburofen 600mg and T3 s for when i want to sleep. on tuesday my face was just getting bigger and bigger so i was concerend so i went to The hopsital they hooked me up to a IV and i go back ever 8hrs for my meds. I take something for pain and for the infection i take Clindamycin. but its thrus july 1 my face is huge and its hard as a rock. At 12 tonight it will be 48 hrs. swelling was really bad last night wed. and i had a small fever. its gone now. but now its just really big and puffy. Is that normally for its to take so long to work ?
