Where can I get antibiotics without prescription?
Posted by: NeedAnibiotics ()
Date: July 15, 2010 10:35AM

I need antibiotics like Amoxicillin (500mg, 14 pills) for tooth infection, but I don't have insurance to go to dentist. I heard Latin grocery stores sell them without prescription for immigrants who usually don't have insurance. Does anyone know which bodega/mercado sell antibiotics? If you know their price, it'd be great. I thought about buying fish antibiotics from pet store, but I prefer drugs for human. Thank you for your help in advance.

If you have a tooth infection, you really should go to the dentist. Worry about your health first, and your money later. Or, just get some pliers and rip that bad boy right out of your head.

Do you think they'll really sell them to you, if you're not hispanic and/or an immigrant?

I really don't think whatever comes in a bottle from an illegal sale in a shady Latin grocery store is really safe for consumption.

Yeah, it was disgusting. I think the worst part about it was the grinding of the skate and the rock against his teeth before hit did it (sort of like the teeth on the curb in American History X).

Certain antibiotics are better for some infections and wont be as effective for others. An MD or DDS has a better shot at picking the right one for you. For tooth infections it's best to suck it up and see a professional. They can get a little out of hand and end up as a serious problem. An abcess in your jaw can make the jump to your brain with a little festering. Good times.

Try just calling a dentist and telling them you don't have insurance and see what they can quote you. Places like NVCC in Springfield have clinic hours as well for people who cannot afford care.

Not that I'm trying to flame you, but is it that you truly cannot afford a dentist or just don't want to spend your money that way?

Has anyone mentioned your breath lately? Tooth infections have one hell of a stink to them if that's any motivation to have it looked at. The kind of breath that people have to duck out of the way from... oooofah.

Some inexpensive antibiotics are, or were, free at Giant. Not sure if that is still the case. You DID need a prescription though...

Try a third-world country. There's a reason they don't hand out antibiotics willy-nilly, because misuse breeds drug-resistant bacteria. Also, if you have an infected tooth you probably need some sort of work done on it.

Here's a list of some free and low-cost clinics in the area. It's a PDF file: http://www.jsfreeclinic.org/files/Safety_Net_Contact_List_November_2009.pdf

There's a place in Falls Church listed there that gives dental care for a $40 a visit. Sell something on Craigslist. Or beg, borrow or steal the $40. It'll cost society less than if you breed the next plague in your mouth or when you show up in the ER with a brain infection.

Get it fixed asap. Howard University's dental school will probably do it for less than the average dentist.

Eventually, the pain will cause you to make a move.

Dumbasses like you are the ones who scare me. NOT taking the full course of antibiotics increases the odds of developing antibiotic-resistant bacteria. No matter how good you are feeling, you should always finish the full course of antibiotics. If you don't the strong buggers may survive, and Darwin will reign -- survival of the fittest. All the strong ones will multiply and the rest of us will be subject to incurable infections.

To the original poster, go to the dentist. Sharing prescriptions is illegal.

This is probably your best option, they have one of the better dental schools out there as well.

Call the numbers on the bottom of the page to inquire.

Also look at what the googles found for me.

I would reccomend going to a CVS minute clinic where even if you have no insurance, it can be around 50$ to be seen. Also, amoxicillin is available generic, which means you can get the prescription filled for only 4$. Much safer than taking fish antibiotics, or buying who knows what from a mercado...

Oh quit with the "sharing of prescriptions is illegal" bullshit!

It's not like the guy is trying to score some vikes or percs for the hell of it.

Some people are down on their luck, and it's apparent that he needs an antibiotic, as this infection will not go away.

I understand the reasons behind the concerns with people taking antibiotics randomly, but if there is a legit problem, why can't he ask for some help??

Again, it's not like he's asking for some narcotics.

Freaking right wingers...

By the way, specific bacteria respond to different antibiotics. Just randomly taking some antibiotic is nuts. Let the dentist determine the CAUSE of the infection and prescribe the CORRECT antibiotic.

You are absolutely retarded.

MOST people know, that's amoxicillin, (unless allergic), that gets prescribed for teeth infections.

I've had an infection on one tooth plenty of times, (before getting it pulled), and it was amoxicillin every single time...

It's not "randomly" taking an antibiotic in THIS case.

Stick to the subject in this thread. Guy with bad tooth infection...

I read it and did comprehend it. You think that any amoxicillin is the only thing prescribed for infections, and that is not the case. As a matter of fact, with some dental infections antibiotics are no help at all. The tooth may need to be extracted. Whatever.

Fish antibotics are the same thing you buy at your local pharmacy. They even have the same pill jackets. The cost is cheaper though when it is labeled for fish. Now tell me why we should trust anyone in the medical industry?

Maybe I'm just helping fund my dentist's beach house, but I've never had a tooth infection and received antibiotics to remedy the infection. I have, however, received a root canal or extraction to remedy the infection.
I'm not an expert per se, but I don't see an infected tooth responding to an antibiotic. It's infected for a reason, an abcess. Unfortunately, a pill won't cure a rotting tooth.

I hate dentists. Ultimately, dealing with the dentist wins out over dealing with pain that can be crippling, literally.

Go to the fucking emergency room you degenerate. They can certainly identify and rip out the source of the problem, and they have to treat you. Again, unfortunately.

I know this is way more than a day late and a dollar short, but....

Garlic is a natural antibiotic. The Russians used it in WWII when they ran out of antibiotics.

You can buy garlic pills at GNC or a grocery stores to use as a poor man's antibiotic or a holistic alternative antibiotic.
