How are you doing? If you had a tooth pulled, that socket is going to be open and sore for awhile. It takes awhile for it to heal up and stop being tender. However, if you've got a severe ache, ... ...

i have an infection on tooth extraction site prescribed clavemel forte 500 3 times a day for 5 days how long will it take for infection clear please. ## Hi Annabel, The infection should be gone close to or by the time you run out of the Clavamel forte (Amoxicillin + Clavulanic Acid). If the infection is still there after the 5 days of antibiotics, you'll want to speak with your doctor. In addition, I have heard that vanilla extract works well for tooth infections as well as clove essential oil. I have personally used both of those oils for an area on my gum that became swollen and it healed the area in a couple days. Those oils also helped to numb the pain I was experiencing, so it may do the same for you as well. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Amoxicillin + Clav... ...

after having an extraction can i take tramadol
2 Replies RSS
I went to the dentist for an extraction and he extracted a tooth at 3.30pm. And now the pain is so bad at 11.30pm. I want to know if tramadol will relieve some of the severe pain ? ## ya..offcource it will give relief .No problem you may take this. But in such condition Ibuprofen is choice of drug . ## No, Dr.......ibuprofen is not the choice of drug....not after any kind of surgery. Too much of a bleeding risk. It's ok, in THIS case to take it after 3-5 days but, personally, I would take the TRAMADOL. My oral surgeon always prescribed hydro or oxycodone for the pain......NO NSAID's. ...

Can I stop dosage of metoprolol succinate for dental extraction
1 Reply RSS
I need to have my rear tooth extracted and I am on metoprolol succinate and Losartan potassium and clopidogrel for cardiac therapy, so should I stop taking for a few days to allow dental extraction ? ## Hello, Husbur! How are you? No, please don't stop any of these medications, unless your doctor says that it's okay for you to do. Doing so could result in dangerous rebound effects that could cause greatly elevated heart rate and blood pressure. And the only one that you may need to stop temporarily would be the Clopidogrel, since it helps prevent clotting. Learn more Clopidogrel details here. Have you discussed it with your doctor, yet? ...

Tramadol 50 Mg and tooth pain
3 Replies RSS
Is this drug effective for tooth ache ## Tramadol is a centrally acting analgesic that can help with mild to moderate pain, so it may give some pain relief. However, if the tooth ache has been caused by an infection, it isn't going to do anything to clear that up, nor will it help with any possible swelling that may be involved. Have you consulted a dentist? ## Always buy meds from reputable sources! I always use xxxxxxxxxx for buying pain pills such as Tramadol because of their prices and COD shipping. Hope it helps! ## I have sensitive teeth and so fed up of tooth extraction. Are there any suggestions apart from the canal procedure? ...

amox tr k clv 875 125mg for infection of tooth
2 Replies RSS
I have had a severe tooth ache for the last 2 days and now I am afraid I have an infection in the root of my tooth. Last year when I saw my dentist he said I do need a root canal done. Can Amox Tr K Clv help with the pain and the infection ## Hello, Lou! How are you? This is an antibiotic, so it will only help with bacterial infections, it does nothing to treat pain. It may also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. If you've not had the root canal done, yet, then this its most likely a deep dental infection and it is going to require treatment, most likely an extraction. If you don't have it taken care of, then the infection will just keep returning. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No, thank you so much for your answer to... ...

Hydrocodone Apap 7.5-325
10 Replies RSS
I had a tooth extraction yesterday, been taking I norco 7.5-325 regularly since; took one pill an hour ago and the pain is still unbearable, can i take one more or even half a pill more? ## Hi Ryan, Generally with this type of drug the dosing instructions indicate that you should take 1 pill every 4-6 hours or so. I could be wrong, but I think this is mainly due to the concerns associated with Acetaminophen and liver toxicity. From my own personal experience, it should be fine to take a half a pill more, as they do make a stronger norco with 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen. So it would be as if you're taking the stronger version of the drug. Learn More: Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone I hope this helps! ## Actually, if the pain is still that bad, after having had the to... ...

Can I take supradol (after tooth extraction) while taking warfarin? ## Hello, D! How are you? Sorry about the dental problem. No, you shouldn't take this, unless your doctor specifically tells you that it is safe for you to do so. Supradol contains the active ingredient Ketorolac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and it can actually cause additional blood thinning. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

I got a bad toothaches and was prescript Pontalon Mefenamic Acid 250mg, the next day i went for tooth extraction and wasn't given any medicine so i assume i need the same medication. Now after 2days i still having the pain from the gum even i took this medicine. is there anything wrong? i remember 2years back i went for a tooth extraction i was given mouth wash and medication for only 2days but it was perfect. ## Have you consulted the dentist that did the extraction? Mefenamic Acid is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that can help with some pain and swelling, but how much it will help really depends on the extraction done. For instance what type of tooth it was and if there were any complications. It can also take awhile for an extraction site to heal, especially if it was a front ... ...

how long after taking a suboxone can you use opiate
31 Replies RSS
I have been on 8 mg/2mg Suboxone strips for 1 year. I am having a tooth (back molar) extraction in the morning. I used my Suboxone strip this morning & the tooth extraction is at 9:30 am tomorrow. If I don't use another Suboxone strip before the extraction, would I be able to use Hydrocodone after my surgery? I don't want to get sick, but I am terrified of going through this surgery with no pain meds. Please help. ## should be 48 hrs to alow to leave your system ## So if I took a 10 mg Hydrocodone after not taking a Suboxone for 24-28 hours, will it throw me into withdrawals? That would do me in after surgery to end up in wd's. ## Sorry to say but 8 mg of Suboxone is way stronger then any hydrocodone. It would take a year for you to even feel the effects.

Neurolgia Pain in Teeth
2 Replies RSS
I wonder does anyone else suffer with ongoing everyday pain in their teeth/tooth caused by nerve endings in gums, it took a very long time to get diagnosis for this, and a few extractions by dentist before doctors discovered it was a nerve pain and not a dental pain, I have had this for several years now, everyday in life, its like having a toothache, I had a back tooth removed when it first began as I was insistent it was a toothache, but it only moved into the next tooth, my dentist refused to remove anymore teeth as xray showed there was no problem with my teeth, and the one removed was a very healthy tooth. Ive been to hospitals, see Professors, had RadioFreqency carried out on it going through my cheek, with no success, as wrong nerve was burned off, my GP says it will go away one ... ...

how long Clindamycin work
1 Reply RSS
I have a tooth infection and started taking clindamycin for it i have to get my teeth extracted in 6days. Will the infection be gone by then so i can have the tooth extracted? ## Hi Debbie, Sorry to hear about your tooth infection. I'm actually in the same boat as you, getting an extraction in the next month or so for an infected wisdom tooth. Most people get them taken out when they're young, but at age 25 I guess it's better late than never Lol. At any rate, most antibiotics such as Clindamycin, are often prescribed for 7-10 days, depending on the severity of the infection. But my guess is that the vast majority of the infection may be eradicated well within the parameters of that time frame, especially closer to the 7th day mark, when many patients are actually finished w... ...

how long after taking suboxone can I take Hydrocodone for surgery?
12 Replies RSS
I've been taking 8 mg/2mg Suboxone strips for 1 year. I am having a molar extraction in the morning. I took my Suboxone strip this morning & the tooth extraction is tomorrow at 9:30 am. If I don't take Suboxone again before the procedure, would I be able to take Hydrocodone after the surgery? I don't want to get sick, and I am concerned of going through it with no pain medications. Any advice appreciated! ## Hi, you can use hydros after you have your tooth pulled but it,s not gonna do much. You would be better off taking extra suboxone after you had extraction. Suboxone only works for about 4-5hrs for pain relief. Of course it works much longer keeping wds away and stuff like that. I was speaking to my sub dr just the other day about this. I have addiction issues and pai... ...

It happened twice the evening of the extraction. After each time I took a long nap. this is the day after and i feel better and was able to eat some soup without the chills and things. so doing better ## Are you referring to Hydrocodone?

Will this medicine help prevent infections after having teeth pulled I just had total extractions and was wworried about infections will this help ## Hi Tjay, Based on my research, antibiotics can be used to treat a tooth infection as well as prevent infections in some cases. I recommend that you just keep your mouth as clean and hygienic as possible, you can try rinsing with hydrogen peroxide if your dentist allows. Clove essential is also something you may want to look into trying because it does have antibacterial properties and is great for hygiene of the gums of teeth. Antibiotics are so harsh on the body and can cause lots of other issues, I wouldn't use them unless you have to. I hope this advice helps! ...

prescribed for headaches and tooth pain, works well but what's in it? ## I was wondering if you can tell me if supradol is a strrong narcotic? My fiance went to get dentures in Mexico and they prescribed him this medication. Thank you ## No, this is not a narcotic at all. The American equivelent to Supradol would be Toradol, which is just a strong anti-inflammatory. ## just today i had dental work done in mexico: an extraction and an implant and was prescribed supradol and clendix. I took one pill of each as prescribed and now have a lump on my left (same side as the dental work) quadracept which feels and looks like a muscle spasm. any comments? ## I had a tooth pulled and an implant placed.
