Brief Answer:
you cannot take both amoxicillin and keflex

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query.
As far as the amoxicillin and keflex is concerned, both are antibiotics. If I am your treating doctor, following tooth removal I would have advised you to take amoxicillin 500mg thrice daily for 3days along with a pain killer like diclofenac(if you are not allergic). You cannot mix amoxicillin and keflex.
I hope I have answered your query. If you have any queries reply me back. take care

I have an ear infection. I was seen on Thursday (Doctor never checked ear, nurse did) and given 10 days of amoxicillin. It is Sunday and I still cannot hear out of it properly. My care sheet says that if I did not feel better in a couple days I should go back in. I m uninsured and would love to avoid this, but health does come first. Should I head back into the hospital?

i have suffered with telogem effluviam which is hair shedding. i believe that it's been through stress related issues. the stress has decreased and the hair is starting to grow back. however i now have a tooth infection and have been prescribed anitbiotics amoxicillin and co-codomaol pain relief. i am natrually concerned that these drugs plus the infection might cause further hair loss. can you please put my mind at rest. maybe i am being over anxious because this has been a very traumatic time for me.

for the last five days I have had a dry cough which has caused a lot of strain on my stomach I still have the cough but the pain (strain) is in both my left and right sides it some times takes my breath but not to the extent that it worrys me, a Dr at local centre has given me 7day course of Amoxicillin capsules which I started taking today, As the pain in my sides is aggrevated by the cough and it really is painful when I cough I thought the Dr would have given some cough mixture to ease it but he told me the cough will clear its self, which do s not help me when I am in so much pain when the coughing starts. I am type2 diabetic and it is not easy to buy over the counter any cough mixture which would be safe to take. what can I do to ease this pain
