I'm having a bad toothache and my gum is inflamming now. Currently, I have cold and taking clarinase. Is synflex safe to take for the pain?
Not your best choice: Synflex is a medication usually used for the treatment of osteoarthritis and in some formulations has naproxen (which is a pain reliever). You would be better served taking Ibuprofen or aleve, or even Aspirin and tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain. Then, consult your dentist for treatment that may require antibiotics, etc.See 3 more doctor answers
My son has a bad toothache. He has an appointment Thursday but now he has local swelling and last night he had a fever of 100.1. Should I take to e.r?
Swelling: A localized swelling indicates an infection, so he really should be placed on antibiotics. If the ER is your only choice, a visit certainly will help.See 3 more doctor answers
Will hydrocodone show up in my drug test? I have a really bad toothache and I want to take a hydrocodone (leftover from my surgery last month). But i’m supposed to have a drug test at work next week. Will I test positive?
Yes: Yes, narcotics will appear in your drug test. An out of date prescription is not valid. You should see a dentist and if they prescribe and treat then you have documentation of a problem. Your employer will either accept that or delay the testing.See 3 more doctor answers
I'm having a very bad toothache I took two extra strength excedrin around 30 minutes ago can I take 800 milligrams of ibuprofen?
Not smart: Adding overly large amount of one pain killer (anything more than 400mg Ibuprofen is not more effective than 400mg) to a large (extra strength aspirin) can do more harm than good. Pain caused by infected tooth (abscess). Pain killer will not cure infection. Antibiotics will only control, not cure, infection. See Dentist ASAP for appropriate Rx. That's the only way to fix your problem.See 3 more doctor answers
