Today was a dental checkup and cleaning. The teeth now feel great and look even better.
In preparation, I was asked to take some antibiotics. Two years ago I had total knee replacements. The possibility of infection is a possibility, particularly in the first two years.
So, I was given a prescription. At the pharmacy I gladly accepted four pills.
The instruction was to take four pills one hour prior to the appointment. I faithfully followed the instructions and downed the pills with water right on time.
And as the pills are sliding down my throat I suddenly ask myself – “Is this penicillin based?” With names that are used, you are never quite sure what the base is for the medication.
I googled the prescription name. My fears were quickly overcome. The prescription would not cause an allergic reaction!
And so, I confidently entered my dental appointment!
