Acetaminophen vs ibuprofen for tooth pain

Common Questions and Answers about Acetaminophen vs ibuprofen for tooth pain


Avatar n tn One common use is dentists give it out frequently for tooth pain. Try not to worry too much, all the waiting on appts drives you bonkers. Maybe once you control the pain you can put it out of your mind easier while you wait.
1554262 tn?1374243601 I hope I got the right Forum for this... I'm a 51 year old male and for the past 16 months I have had a strange pain happen to me at random times. I call it a "severe flash pain" for lack of a better description. It is located in my chest behind the sternum and slightly to the right (not the heart side). The pain area radiates about the size of a softball and happens very fast with no or little warning. I have even been raised from sleep with this pain.
Avatar n tn I had similar pain for about two years now. My pain feels like a sharp bubble like pain that goes in the middle of my back, under my left breast, left shoulder, neck and sometimes my chest. I have been to doctor after doctor trying to find what is causing the pain. Does anyone else have this same pain????
2126606 tn?1346348724 I can’t tell you the number of patients we receive for detoxification that were given a prescription for Vicodin for a minor pain, like a backache or tooth pain, which eventually led them to take a stronger opiate like oxycodone, creating a domino effect. It’s become a trend in this country for medical professionals to write prescriptions for hydrocodone drugs too quickly, which is creating an epidemic of these drugs being overprescribed to patients who often times don’t need them.
Avatar f tn I'm still confused as to which pain medications can be used: Motrin vs. Tylenol For Pain Relief Which is safest to take and in what amounts? A: Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is a medication used to control pain (known as an analgesic) and fever (known as antipyretic). In small doses (less than 4 grams per day, or eight pills taken over a twenty-four hour period of time) acetaminophen is quite safe for the liver—unless combined with alcoholic beverages.
203342 tn?1328740807 Having not much experience with any pain meds other than for a bit here or there after shoulder surgery and recently for a dental abscess/root canal, I am confused as to what will be available for the public for pain control both short and long-term under the guidance of a physician.
544292 tn?1268886268 I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
4626633 tn?1382600722 If you truly need medication for your pain and you use it for the short time (7 days as prescribed) then it is not a relapse. Do you have someone that can hold the medicine for you? doal it out? We are not made to suffer just because we are addicts.
Avatar n tn She was given vicodin 50, 1-2 every 4-6 as needed for pain. She found 1 was not enough and was taking 2 every 6 hours. She ended up with complications and an extended recovery and pain, so the Dr. gave her a new script. We asked for 75 as 50 wasn't working and 2 x 50 (100) was too much, making her really high and sleepy. The 75 seemed good and after cutting to 1 a day one weekend, she decided to stop as her tooth and jaw pain had subsided.
Avatar n tn Anyway this is what I have learned and I have to tell you it has always scared the hell out of me. If Dr's are going to prescribe pain meds for an extended period they should really use the ones with no tylenol. sadly alot of addicts go to many Dr's who don't know what we are doing and don't realize we are taking so many from so many Dr's so they use pain meds with high amounts of tylenol.
Avatar n tn I take all the other NSAID's for the inflamation and pain but got hooked on the hydro given for the breakthru. Other than tappering down I don't have alot of advise for you, just wanted you to know your not alone with this or your arthitis and give you some support. I know how it feels.
Avatar n tn my name is brendanand ive been taking tramal for 5 years for back pain from nursing and a bike accident. The most i have taken is 300 mg/day both slow and immediate release. I havent felt well for the past year or so but some days i felt great. About a month ago I decided to reduce my intake to 150mg/day . I thought I must have gotten cancer or something. I wake up feeling shocking, I have no energy, my legs drive me crazy.Unless I take the 50 mg capsules I feel lousy.
Avatar n tn I haven't seen a doctor yet but plan on making an appointment soon if the pain persists. As for the pain, both breasts are sore all over. There's really not one specific area that hurts. Lastly, I never sleep on my stomach because it hurts my back, so I know that's not it either. Any ideas? Surge in hormones? Growth cycle? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Avatar f tn First of all I am not a nurse ot doctor but I wanted to comment on the hair loss. I have also been prescribed topamax for pain, mood stabilizer and weight loss so I have been looking a lot on the net. I have seen a few things about hair loss. I wanted to comment on that. I have been a hairstylist for 24 years and one thing that I have noticed without doubt is that when one of my customers loses a significant amount of weight (25 lbs or more) they always have a loss of hair.
Avatar n tn It could also be that it really is only prescribed for headache and the opiates are prescribed for a variety of pain problems. In my years of trying to get clean I have only met one other person who had an addiction to this drug. It may not be the most popular drug but it certainly has it's hold over us and that's what we have to remember. How often do you take your pills and how many at a time?? I take 2 every 3 hours and can usually stop at 6 although some days I take 2 more.
Avatar m tn The only other things I have going on that MAY be related, is an upper back pain/numbness... unknown cause. Been going on for years though. No diagnosis. So basically I'm out of ideas, and about to go insane. It's terrible at night not being able to sleep because of that feeling, and not being able to sleep with my girlfriend because I keep her awake with my constant moving around and itching...
Avatar n tn so although everyone is different, the symptoms started rather early for me. We'll cross our fingers for you and hopefully you'll have some good news in a week or so!
