Paddling while on antibiotics?

I recently had an infected tooth and am on antibiotics until my root canal in a week. The infection seems to have mostly cleared up but I have to finish my 10 day round of pills. Yuk. Has anyone paddled while in the same predicament.

You'll be fine... heck, you can even drink a little river water when your upside down.

I had full open heart surgery in 1999. They had to kill the infection in my heart before they could operate. I had a pik catheter in my arm for 8 weeks while I went to oncology every day to get injected. I paddled every day with it and no problems. However, I do have to take meds now before I go to the dentist because teeth infections seem to go straight to the heart. So if you have any heart issues I would question dirty water being exposed to your open gums. If not...as stated above, youll be fine!

If anything the antibiotics open up the possibility of new runs. Storm drains surging, raw sewage flow bumps, tepid tropical descents; use your new found bug resistance superpowers while you can!

Just ten days?

Why take a chance?

Follow your Doctor's orders is my advice.

I'd think paddling on antibiotics should be fine. It's drinking on antibiotics that's a no-no.

Just some - Flagyl, Tinidazole, maybe Bactrim and some cephalosporins, can occasionally, but not always, cause nausea, vomiting, flushing, and headache, when mixed with alcohol.
