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.

Pain Relief (Definition)

A recent study showed that in a hospitalized group of patients it was not the actual degree of pain relief that determined patient satisfaction. It was the perceived concern on the part of the heath care providers and their attempts to alleviate the degree of pain that mattered. Even ...Read more

What can I take for my tooth pain if vicodin doesn't help?

What can I take for my tooth pain if vicodin doesn't help?

See a Dentist: You can go see your dentist. It sounds like it is more serious and needs some professional attention. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or any anti-inflammatory medication can help. Aleve, motrin, advil and even a holistic alternative arnica. But the key is to find the source of the pain and stop it. You must be suffering. Please get some help!

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?

No choice: You can't fix this yourself--it's not a diy project. There's no otc that will "cure" you. You need professional help. Talk to the dentist about a payment plan.

Can I have moderate amounts of alcohol if I take a low dosage of vicodin before sleeping at night (to alleviate tooth pain)?

Can I have moderate amounts of alcohol if I take a low dosage of vicodin before sleeping at night (to alleviate tooth pain)?

Not good idea: Don't drink and drive. Don't drink and take drugs. Don't drink and operate machinery. It's just not safe as the alcohol and the pain killer alter the combined effect on your body.

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?

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.

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.

Do not mix drugs: Both contain acetaminopine and the combination will also augment the opioid concentration. Acetaminopine toxicity can result in liver damage and opioids can lead to nausea vomiting and constipation. Only mix drugs under your doctors care and prescription

Is crocin pain relief tablet useful on tooth pain? Please advise!

See your dentist: Crocin is acetaminophen and caffeine. Taken by mouth it may offer some relief but a tooth ache will not go away with pain medication or on its own. You need to see a dentist for an exam and diagnosis of what is causing your pain. A tooth typically won't hurt unless the nerve has become involved. It will only get worse. See your dentist asap. Good luck.

I'm taking 5mgs of norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for tooth pain and it's not helping atall. What should I do?

See a dentist: Tooth pain always has a cause and dentist's are trained to determine the problem and treat it appropriately. Medications may slightly "dull" the pain but are not definitive treatment to eliminate the cause of your pain.

Tooth ache in one of my top back left teeth, think it could be a tooth abscess, what are some quick pain relief remedies?

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!

Will a prescribed dose of vicodin after wisdom tooth removal make me vomit?

Sometimes yes: Vicodin has that effect on some patients. Percocet is a similar drug with fewer GI side effects but is not prescribed as often because of its greater addictive potential. Once solution is to take an anti-emetic suppository. Also, you might experience fewer GI symptom if you do not use the generic. It costs more and insurance often do not pay but my patients report an improvement. See your surgeon.

Would kroger brand xtra strength pain relief pm be a good over-the-counter drug to take for my knee replacement instead of vicodin?

Would kroger brand xtra strength pain relief pm be a good over-the-counter drug to take for my knee replacement instead of vicodin?

Tylenol (acetaminophen): Arthritis strength tylenol (acetaminophen) is helpful. Vicodin (hydrocodone) is a narcotic and the chronic use of narcotics for pain control can cause serious side effects, including narcotic dependence, narcotic tolerance, and hyperalgesia (hyspersensitivity to pain). This class of drugs should not be used to treat arthritis pain unless no other options are effective.

Call your dentist: There should not be that much pain after a tooth extraction. You should call the dentist and let them know that you are still having a problem. Good luck.

Sciatica: Sciatica is a neuropathic pain due to nerve compression. If your husband has been seen at er and symptoms are not improved with steroid, vicodin, toradol, I recommend you see a pain specialist for evaluation. The chiropractic therapy is good for adjustment or soft tissue treatment.

Had 4 teeth extracted yesterday was prescribed ibuprofen 600mg n vicodin can I take both at one time?

Potentially: You must call your doctor to confirm. Vicodin and ibuprofen can be taken together if the individual is on no other medications, has no other health problems, and was prescribed a specific dosing regiment by a treating doctor.
