Avatar f tn I've been given a bottle of Hydrocodone after getting my wisdom teeth surgically removed. I've only taken it 3 times because i believe i've come to the realization that i get really bad nausea from it, and have already thrown up 3 times (from one-two doses). I've followed the instructions on the bottle, but have discontinued use since yesterday, and since then have been taking Advil Liqui-Gels, but i am still very nauseated. How long would this nausea tipically last?
Avatar n tn After the removal of your tooth, you will feel good because the area where the extraction took place will be numb. It will take a few hours for it to wear off and after that you may experience anything from a mild tooth ache to a great deal of pain...it's hard to tell. I cannot tell you how to take your medication but I can tell you that when I had my tooth extracted, I waited until the Novocaine had almost wore off and then took a pain pill.
Avatar m tn The pain is excruciating and unbearable. I was given a prescription for hydrocodone but get no relief whatsoever. I called my dentist office yesterday to let them know I am still suffering and they had me come in immediately to check my progress out. Of course everything looks wonderful and she said the healing process is going right at the pace it should be and inquired on my pain.
Avatar n tn Tooth extraction done at 22 weeks.. I am going to be ok is the baby.. Can I take pain meds.. The doctor said try to avoid them if I can..
Avatar f tn The lowest amount of tylenol that I know of that comes with hydrocodone would be in Norco tablets. They contain 10mg of the hydrocodone and only 325mg of tylenol. Maybe talk to your doctor about switching you to oxycodone instead? Oxycodone comes in tablet form that's just pure oxycodone, it has no tylenol or acetaminophen in it at all. It's stronger than hydrocodone, too, so the 5mg tablet (the smallest one they make) might even work as well for you as the 7.5mg vicodin.
Avatar f tn I recently had to have a wisdom tooth extraction. That is NOT fun... and on top of that I developed a dry socket! Which is worse than having the extraction! To make a long story shorter, I have had difficulty becoming addicted to painkillers. I finally ... after months of addiction, kicked the habit. Before, during and after my surgical extraction my doctor prescribed me oxycodone as well as hydrocodone.
Avatar n tn I have had wisdom teeth removed, a bad tooth extracted and my gallbladder removed in the past. For each of these I was prescribed either hydrocodone (vicodin) and tylenol 3. I have terrible reactions to these meds.I feel sick to my stomach, very dizzy, and I usually end up vomiting or having dry heaves (not fun when you have abdominal stitches for a gallbladder extraction.) They didn't help much with the pain either and I decided the pain was preferable to the side effects of the drugs.
Avatar f tn I had a single dental extraction and bone graft performed on Thursday, March 13th after two bad root canals and a bad crown that wasn't sealed on properly by another dentist. He also scraped away alot of infection due to the crown and root canals being "bad." It's now Tuesday the 18th (5 and 1 half days after) and my pain has increased. My periodontist is wonderful - he even saw me today after I called worried about the pain and throbbing I'm still having.
Avatar f tn Plenty of women are prescribed hydrocodone, if you abuse it, it heightens the risk of baby having a possible addiction. If youve taken it before & have had no problems then i would take it. I have some from when they prescribed me some for my tooth extraction, & im not a pill popper and didnt even need them :/ theyll probably come in handy later though so i keep em just in case.
Avatar f tn I was 31 weeks went to the dentist and had my wisdom tooth & a absess tooth pulled. They gave me 20 hydrocodone 5mg for the pain.I even had an xray done on my mouth.
Avatar n tn In people more vulnerable to bleed, the drug is stopped at least a week before extraction. Post extraction, you can re-start the medication after 24 hours if there has been no bleeding. Sometimes you may need to wait for 2-3 days after which you are allowed to re-start aspirin. Please discuss this with your dentist. Take care!
Avatar m tn Brought the child tooth extraction, the doctor gave the former patients after tooth extraction, tooth extraction in gloves again give me children, in the process of tooth extraction, before a patient came to the front of the doctor, for some money to the doctor's hands, the doctor took the money into the pocket, but there is no change gloves again, but with the took the money hand continue to give the child tooth extraction, in the process of tooth extraction, the hand bleeding was forced to
Avatar n tn Approximately 6 days ago, my SO (a 40+ YO WM alcoholic) had an extraction of a molar after being on 10 days of Pen-Vee K; no antibiotics post procedure. Five days later, he is now having shaking chills alternating with sweats/feeling hot (no thermometer available, so temp not documented). Negligible solid intake until yesterday, with minimal appetite but able to keep down small quantities at a time. Also, some complaints of frequent soft bowel movements but no diarrhea per se.
Avatar f tn First 2 weeks had dry socket alot of pain, now extraction site closed and no pain but a gummy bubble like lump has appeared over extraction site.
Avatar f tn I have 3 teeth in need of extraction and one in need of a root canal. It ***** to have to wait.
19028025 tn?1473902866 I had a tooth extraction on Monday morning and it was a painless process. It bled for about two hours, then stopped. I assume a clot formed. I have been on a light diet of mashed potatoes, pudding, and apple sauce since. I have not used a straw nor have I spit. I have had some excess saliva, so I have had to swallow often. It does feel a lot like sucking through a straw, I suppose. I do not smoke, etc.
897400 tn?1303329148 I have been clean of Hydrocodone for 33 days. I have some samples of Ultram and I'm tempetd to try one to see if it helps with pain. I mowed for 5 hours yesterday and I'm hurting everywhere. I've never gotten a buzz from the Tram before but I wonder if it's dangerous to even try it again. I havn't had any cravings for Norco, so I am hoping that an occasional use of a stronger pain reliever might be ok. Does anyone think this is a really bad idea?
Avatar n tn After receiveing the bill, I realized that the dentist had charge for the extraction as well as an alveoplasty. My insurance is saying that alveoplasty is only necessary when the gum is being prepared for dentures (I am not getting dentures) and that a standard extraction includes a smooting of the bone to promote healing. I am wondering if it is standard practice to say that the alveoplasty is a separate procedure from the extraction.
Avatar f tn I have never had such pain before after a tooth extraction. Why are my gum lines feeling sore. It is no where near the tooth extraction?
Avatar m tn One of my wisdom tooth was pulled out on Tuesday, I felt an ache in the area which I believed was the normal healing process. After researching I am little concern about the side of extraction. The gums in front of the extraction (teeth 18,19, 20) are bleeding when I floss, and when I put pressure on them with my finger. There is also a slight pain as well. Is this normal? Or is this an infection of some sort?
Avatar f tn Following extraction of an upper molar and wisdom tooth, I have suffered from miserable coated tongue, a sensation of dryness, and loss some of sensation in my upper lip. Could this be the result of any nerve damage from the extractions?
Avatar n tn Should an infected tooth be treated with antibiotic before extraction? Is this a judgement call by the dentist or should caution be used to reduce the risk of a puss pocket forming causing much more damage after extraction is complete? And what does it mean when the local anesthesia still doesn't numb the area after the third dose? Are there reasons that the local anesthesia would not work? Thank you.
Avatar n tn However, I now have a very painful, sharp bony protrusion on the outside of the gum area of the extraction. Is this some kind of broken or crushed socket?
Avatar m tn I expect to have an implant some time later. At the time of extraction, the dentist told me I need have bone graft and it should be done at the time of tooth extractio or at least within two weeks after the extraction. But I did not follow his advice and just simply had the tooth extracted. My question is if I am to have an implant later, can I still have bone graft at that time?
Avatar m tn Feel free to talk to your dentist prior to the extraction and ask him what his plans for post extraction pain control are. Best of luck and please keep us posted on how you're doing.
