Extreme toothache for a month, I've seen a dentist . I've been taking 3 ibuprofen every 4 hours for pain each day, am I taking to much?
See dentist again: Dental pain will not resolve on its own with home care. Also Ibuprofen has many side effects. In order to get appropriate treatment it is important to know the underlying cause for this pain. Call your dentist and emphasize the urgency of your situation, so that he/she can give you the priority appointment. Do not procrastinate, make a phone call. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

To function during my period I have to take 4 to 6 Advil (ibuprofen) every 4 hours for cramps. What other solutions are there.?

I'm on Oxycodone and 600mg ibuprofen every 4-6 hours for a lower back sprain., can I replace the ibuprofen with robacacet? The pain is still intense.

If your diagnosis does not change (I doubt it.) switch to a Pain Management specialist. Prolonged pain can change the way you brain feels pain. This must stop. Do not become a doctor-caused addict. ...Read more
