Q.

antibiotics for gum/tooth infection

i have this reoccuring gum infection, and am currently on Klacid antibiotics...i was just wondering if it''s possible to take klacid anally? As i have difficulty swallowing any kind of pills...i need to have a mouthful of food to swallow pills, but at times it''s hard for me to swallow food, probably due to the medication i''m on (long term)....so...i was thinking that by taking klacid recatlly, i''d be able to take the nessessary antibiotic to kill off this horrid infection....please help asap....
Thanking you in advance....

I wouldn't advise taking it anally without speaking to your GP first.
It's also unwise to contiune taking antibiotics for a gum infection- further treatment is needed.
