I am Dr Ritu Goel, your medical advisor for today.

You should take Clindamycin for dental infection which is the first line antibiotic for dental infections. Cefadroxil is usually used to treat strep throat, skin and urinary tract infections. You can take Clindamycin with coumadin, there will be no interaction. If you find this answer helpful, please rate me as good or excellent. If you have any further queries, do not hesitate to contact me, I will be happy to assist you.
