As you may or may not know, I had open heart surgery when I was 3. Because of this, I have to take antibiotics before I go for a dental procedure. It helps eliminate any infection that could possibly occur from the procedure. So I usually just take 4 pills an hour before my appointment.
However, things have changed. You are now required to take 6 pills an hour before your procedure, and 3 pills 6 hours after your first dose.
I thought I would dedicate a post on this since this is new to me. If you are a heart patient, and going to the dentist soon, check with your dentist, and your doctor to see what they prescribe.
