My mom just recently found out she has an infection in her mouth (I think it's in one of her teeth). Anyways, she went to a dentist since she's been having a very bad toothache and she's been prescribed Penicillin. However, after she filled out the prescription she found out that it contained 44 pills and now doesn't want to use it. She's quite against using drugs. She says if she was to use it, she'd only want to use about 8 pills.
We also have a camping trip (in the wilderness without reception) in 4 days.
I know that if she starts the treatment, she should go through with the whole thing, but can you guys help me convince her that she should use the antibiotics?
She thinks 44 pills is a lot. Is it? How bad would the side effects be?
Do you think she should go on the camping trip? She's been pretty tired lately since she can't eat much due to her toothache.
Thanks in advance for any advice :)
