The objective of preemptive analgesia is to eliminate or reduce pain input during, or immediately following, an invasive procedure. Using a long-acting local anesthetic, even when a general anesthetic is administered, may reduce pain. Use nsaids (im or IV ketarolac) or Motrin by mouth. For severe pain tramadol prn. Check with your oral surgeon the medical history prior taking any medication.

You can take vicodin if you can, but if you are allergic there are many alternatives that your dentist can prescribe for you.
