Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Yes its a normal peocedure to be followed as a prophylaxis. You do as your doctor has directed you and take the medicines suggested by him. You can take tab. Paracetamol 650 thrice a day after food for fever and not lcz montelukast.  Consult him in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Definitely you need antibiotics course before initiation of dental procedure as prophylaxis and especially that you are getting fever, could be due to dental infection in this case

There is no problem in taking antibiotics but it is advisable to defer tooth extraction till your fever comes down.
