For anyone looking for this information, Tramadol is a centrally acting analgesic, so it really has as good of a chance of helping with a toothache as any other pain reliever.

The caveat, of course, is that this is a prescription medication, so it shouldn't be taken if your doctor hasn't prescribed it.

Additionally, it is derived from an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

And to the original poster, or anyone else in a similar scenario, if you are getting toothaches that frequently that you have the proper dosing of a medication to help down that precisely, then something is wrong and you need to see a good dentist to look into the problem. You may not be engaging in proper oral hygiene, or there could be a genetic issue, but it is not a problem that's going to fix itself, regardless of the cause.

The dental issues that cause toothaches, such as deep caries or infections will just keep returning, until the problem is rectified.

Are there any questions or comments?
