Can I smoke while taking pain medicines for gum problems?

hey doctor,
I ve just had tooth job done due heavy pain in my gums yesterday. And amoxycillin 500 mg ; metronidazole 400 mg ; domperidone IP 30 mg and paracetamol, serratiopepidase and Aceclofenac tablets is prescribed by the dentist to overcome after surgery pain or swelling. During this medication period should I resort to smoke or forbade it for quite some time for now?

thanks for your query, i have gone through your question... it is better to stop smoking form 3-5days after surgery since smoking creates negative pressure and induces bleeding and delayed wound healing... nothing to do with your drugs...i hope my answer will help you...take care..
with regards..
