See a dentist ASAP: Pain meds, even narcotics, will only do so much in alleviating dental pain. You need to have the cause treated otherwise the pain will soon become unbearable. All the best.... ...Read more

My dr put me on tylenol 3 for knee pain. how long does it take to kick in. i take it after i get done with PT. it says 1-2 tabs every 6 hrs as needed.

1-2 hours: Most patients get some pain relief from this type of medication within 1-2 hours. However, even though T-3 is a narcotic pain med, it is relatively weak. If not working, then consult with your doc regarding other forms of pain relief, whether it be other meds or non-medication forms.

Can make changes: Try switching to a less constipating form of iron (e.g., ferrous bisglycinate) and try to moderate consumption of diuretic drinks like coffee/oj. Magnesium and vitamin c supplementation can also help with constipation (although mg+ can interfere with calcium absorption if you're low). For vit c, start with buffered powder, add a heaping 1/2 tsp to water/juice, & increase by 1/2 tsp/day until ok. ...Read more

maybe: It may be fine, but since you haven't mentioned how many times you take that dose daily, how much tylenol, (acetaminophen) etc, it's difficult to be more clear via email. Call both of your doctors and ask them specifically about both medications, and follow their advice. Sometimes, narcotics and stimulants work well together, sometimes they cause problems. ...Read more
