Not understanding some other tablets Please help
Hi. I had tonsilitis and gum problems the other day and I went to the local clinic. I explained to the nursing sister what my problem was, and she prescribed these tablets to me. Moxypen 250mg capsules Gulf Vitamien B Co Forte tablets and Chlotrimetron or Chlotrinetrom (not sure about the spelling)

She did not explaine to me which ones were for the tonsils and which were for the painful gums. Now, please help me to understand if first, they were good medication I was supposed to get and if not whhich ones was I supposed to be given. Second, what are these tablets for. Do I still have to continue taking them, or should I just stop them?

The antibiotic (moxypen) will help to clear both the sore throat and the gum condition. The vit B wil also boost your immune system helping your body to recover quicker. The chlor-trimeton will dry up your post nasal drip that lead to the sore throat.
You can consider getting a mouthwash like corsodyl or betadine from your pharmacy to clear the gum condition quicker.
