What to do when vicodin doesn't stop tooth pain?

What to do when vicodin doesn't stop tooth pain?

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

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
