In brief: Call your surgeon

The pain medication prescribed after "wisdom teeth" removal depends in the difficulty of the removal.
For straightforward extraction advil and tylenol (acetaminophen) can work fine but for more difficult extractions vicodin or Percocet works well. Your surgeon can call in a prescription for vicodin for pain and an anti-emetic like Phenergan for nausea to a pharmacy near you. If you smoke, now us a good to quit.

In brief: Fluid intake

Dehydration is a major cause of headaches, make sure you're getting enough water. If concerned call your surgeon.
