In brief: Extreme tooth pain

Where does it hurt , for how long, and when? Does it keep you awake at night? Excedrine migraine is like a super aspirin- it can help for short periods of time but too much can make more problems-call your dentist asap.

In brief: See ur dentist

Regardless of the medication, the meds will only help for a very short time.
Call for an appointment and you will feel better soon...

In brief: Antibiotics

You probably need antibiotics- if can't get into a dentist your family doctor will usually prescribe antibiotics for you.
However, this will not solve the dental problem, you still need to see a dentist. Don't take more than the suggested dose on the excedrin bottle to avoid bleeding and kidney problems. Make sure to drink alot of water while taking this med.
