Hello and good evening
Thank you for your question

Based on your question, I understand that you are worry about your problem. I will try to help you.

Fir your information, to date, there are no side effect to take the antibiotics and analgesics after you have complete your vaccination. There is no interaction between these drugs and the vaccine. You can take the medicines according to your dentist.

But, before taking any medications, I advice you to refer to a doctor first to get a proper treatment. You can also have an online consultation with our doctors to get more information and further treatments.
