Can I take dolobid after a tooth extraction?

Can I take dolobid after a tooth extraction?

Post extraction: Talk to your dentist about your need for pain medications following your extraction. For a simple extraction OTC medications like ibuprophen work well. You should never take a prescription medication that is not prescribed for you for a specific reason. This can be very dangerous.

I just went to the ER about 6 hours ago for a broken molar. I'm in terrible pain and they prescribed Dolobid. It isn't helping at all. What can I do?

I just went to the ER about 6 hours ago for a broken molar. I'm in terrible pain and they prescribed Dolobid. It isn't helping at all. What can I do?

Dolobid?: A broken molar sounds pretty painful. Dolobid is an NSAID similar to Ibuprogen and other cox-1/2 inhibitors. Not sure what the does would be. A broken molar in my opinion sounds like a case for Norco or Vicodin. Any case I do not know the fully history. If you have normal liver and kidneys. You might want to try Ibuprofen 600-800mg + 500-1000mg of Tylenol (acetaminophen). Be surprised is dolobid alone is enoug

Enteric coated aspirin or dolobid easy on the kidneys?

Enteric coated aspirin or dolobid easy on the kidneys?

No difference: Enteric coated medications are coated to limit stomach upset. The effect on the kidneys is unaffected by enteric coating. If you take the medication, i.e.aspirin, as recommended you should be safe vis a vis effect on the kidneys. In the absence of pre existing renal disease, only an overdose is risky.

If I take one pill of diflunisal each day, about how long will it take to see negative side effects?

If I take one pill of diflunisal each day, about how long will it take to see negative side effects?

Strange question: Diflucan (fluconazole) is an antifungal pill to treat or prevent a yeast infection, usually given during antibiotic treatment in women who are prone to fungal infections (e.g. Itchy vaginitis) after antibiotic use. Often one or two pill are all that is needed. I have no idea how long it would take to get negative side effects from daily diflucan; probably no one does!
