 5   I've had multiple dental complications throughout the years and penicillin is the only medication I've been able to take without harsh side effects. Within 3 days, the pain had subsided. If I get an infection, I always request penicillin. Works great for me. F 30 10 days

PENICILLIN-VK  (PENICILLIN V POTASSIUM):  Penicillin is an antibiotic used to treat and prevent a wide variety of bacterial infections. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats and prevents only bacterial infections. It will not work for virus infections (such as the common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
