Bad tooth pain. She's tried 1000mg of ibuprofen wants to take cyclobenzaprine5mg and amoxicillin is this safe?

Whoa: Sounds like "she's" self medicating. 1, 000mg of ibuprofen (Advil) is no more effective than 200 mg for pain caused by infected (abscessed) tooth. Cyclobezaprine is for muscle spasm, not for infection/pain. Penicillin has to be taken 4x/day for 5 full days to slow spread of infection. What she needs is a Dentist to treat the infection (root canal or extraction). Get professional help fast. ...Read more
