There should be no problem taking the amoxicillin with your current medications and your medical history.Sometimes amoxicillin can give a false high glucose reading so use Clinistix to check your sugar if you are concerned that you may be getting a false high glucose reading.Otherwise stay on the amoxicillin and get an appointment with your dentist ASAP to have this tooth extracted.
