Yes: As a dentist, i can't prescribe for non-dental reasons. Probably neither can an md. Geez, what kind of piercing causes that much pain? Consider a shot of whiskey instead!

Very little. : Tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 may slightly dull the pain, but it will not block the pain of the piercing.

Piercing Pain.: Where on your body is the piercing? If it's your ear lobes- why bother. The pain isn't bad & is quite brief. However, be prepared for more pain if it is your tongue, nipples or genitals. Those can be source of pain that keep on giving. A tylenol (acetaminophen) iii isn't effective for that long. The one option that may help is auricular acupuncture with asp needles before hand. Are you sure you want to do this?
