Is Vicodin Prescribed For Tooth Pain Relief
Fix the problem: Firstly, take an anti inflammatory like Ibuprofen rather then vicodin. If that doesn't work, vicodin will be more effective. Second, get the tooth checked out. If you don't take care of the problem, it will not go away. The longer you wait the more uncomfortable and stressed you will become and the situation will get worse rather then better. Good luck. ...Read more

Unbearable tooth pain in every tooth. Been to dentists but can't afford what needs done. Vicodin doesn't ease the pain at all. What do I do?

Can I have moderate amounts of alcohol if I take a low dosage of vicodin before sleeping at night (to alleviate tooth pain)?
Implant tooth pain. Dr gave 300mg of vicodin es 7.5 to take for two days. However I also have glaucoma and forgot ask if ok to take.
Took 1/2 a vicodin for bad tooth pain, feeling anxious about it. Taking it with antibiotic, but afraid of narcotics. Anything to worry about?
No Contraindications: Those 2 medications are not known to be contraindicated with each others use; however, I agree with the other doctor above that this behavior may not be good, unless you have already seen a dentist and were prescribed these medications for an imminent procedure that will fix your obvious tooth problem. Make sure you are taking care of yourself, get your tooth fixed asap-you don't want to lose it. ...Read more
I took a daytime cold/flu medicine with 650mg acetaminophen 5-6 hours ago. I have a terrible tooth pain that won't go away. Is it safe to take a vicodin now?
Safe, but...: You need to stop self medicating and get to the 'root' of your problem (pun intended - you may need a root canal). No more than 3000mg of Acetaminophen in 24 hours. But instead of just throwing meds on the problem, see the dentist asap before you have a terrible facial cellulitis or other complications. ...Read more

Good luck. ...Read more

Tooth ache in one of my top back left teeth, think it could be a tooth abscess, what are some quick pain relief remedies?
OTC and DDS!: All the otc pain medications that you can take on your own have about equal onset of relief. Take what works best for you- advil, motrin, aleve (naproxen) or what you would normally take for a headache. However, the best and quickest relief will be obtained by seeing a dentist to determine the cause of the pain and start treatment. Thing can go downhill quickly, so don't delay! ...Read more
