This is not the correct antibiotic

You like have a tooth infection that went into sinuses

You need augmentin to go with it
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I am allergic to penicillin would still be okay to take augmenting and if so does it have to be prescribed.

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
No you can't take it

In that case you need clindamycin
