My sister is brestfeeding her 7 months old baby. A while ago, she was having a tooth ache. Is it safe for her to take apain reliever?

Yes - tylenol (acetaminophen): Tylenol (acetaminophen) and advil are safe to take while breastfeeding, however this will only mask the underlying cause of the toothache which could be infection. I recommend visiting a dentist as soon as possible to determine the cause and solution for her toothache. Meanwhile however over the counter pain medicine will relieve her symptoms. ...Read more

Will over-the-counter medicine for tooth ache that has benzyl alcohol in it cause false positive on 80 hr test I take?

Central: Central nervous system and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these effects, especially in elderly or debilitated patients.

Did your dentist prescibe your pain medication for you? Is your toothache following a dental procedure, or are you self medicating without being treated?

My boyfriend has itchy bumps on his hips, thighs and genital area. He takes 2 benadryl, (diphenhydramine) 4 Advil and b&e powder for his tooth ache. Allergic reaction maybe?

Yes, possibly: An allergy to advil (ibuprofen) can cause hives. If hives have another underlying cause then advil (ibuprofen) may exacerbate the underlying hive problem. Other possible causes of hives:

1. Allergies to pollens, mold, dust, food, drugs (like advil (ibuprofen)) and bee stings
2. Infections like hepatitis
3. Autoimmunity
4. Complement deficiency – acquired or hereditary
5. Vaculitis

Don't wait!: Make sure you get a complete and thorough dental examination as soon as possible. Then make sure that you get whatever dental treatment is necessary to prevent a flare-up or dental emergency while you are away. If that happens, you will not be a happy camper trying to find a competent dentist to treat you. Don't rely on medications alone. When you get back, complete the rest of your treatment. ...Read more

Hi I am 38 weeks and 3 days pregnant and I have bad tooth ache I have appointment tomorrow what can I take?

Only Tylenol (acetaminophen): Your only option at this point would be acetaminophen; no other over the counter analgesic would be safe to take at your stage of pregnancy.

The timing of your toothache may also pose certain limitations on what your dentist can do, and he will need to collaborate with your obstetrician to chart a course that provides relief with the least risk to your pregnancy and your unborn baby. ...Read more

Yes: It is never a good idea to diagnose and treat yourself. You should contact your dentist to be treated for the emergency. However, if that is not possible, and have pain and swelling, the antibiotics may help. If you have no allergies to penicillin, you should take three tablets daily or every eight hours for the infection. You could also contact your MD for some medication. ...Read more

Having a tooth ache nd trying to get pregnant suppose to start my period in 5 days I want to take hydrocodone for the pain will that affect anything?

Probably not: Hydrocodone does pass through the placenta to a growing baby, but if needed to treat pain or injury, is usually safe. Generally it is combined with acetaminophen, which, although relatively safe, has been linked to more complications than hydrocodone alone. ...Read more

Night before last I began cold/sinus symptoms: congestion, frontal headache, earache, and jaw/tooth ache. I'm 30 wks pregnant. What can I take safely?

Multiple Issues?: Sounds like you could potentially have multiple issues going on, but possibly a good sinus infection. Pregnant women can typically take Tylenol (acetaminophen) but not NSAID's (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen). Antibiotics that are in pregnancy category B are considered safe such as penicillin & amoxicillin.
