dental abscess

I went to the hospital since my dentist is not available on weekends and I found out I have a dental abscess. I am in a lot of pain and I have been taking amoxicillin and tyenol. Is amoxicillin safe? I know the doctor wouldn't prescribe it if it wasn't but I still feel paranoid. And how much tyenol can you take in a day, I'm taking regular strength.

Yes I was taking amoxicillion for my abscess. They had given 2 prescriptions in my 2nd trimester. You are fine no worries.

Take Tylenol as directed on bottle.

My midwife typed up a note stating what I could take. I also had 3 molars removed in my 34th week. Just talk to your doctor or midwife ask them to type you up a letter for your dentist if you plan to have an extraction.
