Dosage of Ibuprofen and tylenol (acetaminophen) that works well. Make sure your liver and kidneys are healthy. Do not exceed recommended dosages for any of the medicines that are described here. 600mg of Ibuprofen and 1000 mg of tylenol (acetaminophen) can provide pain relief equal to or greater than a narcotic.

Narcotic are typically not used after implant placement. Talk with your surgeon about this. The recommended medications would be a combination of ibuprofen and Tylenol
