Tooth/gum pain

I just started taking sertaline (zoloft) 8 days ago and i have been experiencing tooth/gum pain i know i need fillings but this just seems different anyone else go through this? ## Do you grind your teeth while sleeping? that can cause tooth and gum pain. maybe it got worse since getting on the drug. other than that, I haven't heard of this as a side effect of zoloft. could be periodontal disease. see a dentist. ## I believe that Martin is on the right track and thank him for his post. SSRIs, such as Sertraline, have been known to cause bruxism, as well as gum disease and bleeding gums. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. I experienced it myself, when I used to take it. Have you spoken to your doctor?... ...

I have a tooth infections waiting on my antibiotics but they gave me 800mg Motrin but its not helping at all!! what should I do ????? PLEASE HELP!!! ## Hello, Ashely! How are you?

wisdom tooth pain

I took one loratab 7.05-45004 @ 7:15 pm, it is now 9:47 pm and I am still in tears because the pain is still so strong. Can I take another loratab now to hopefully ease the pain or should I wait until the next scheduled dose? ## What is the dose of the Lortab? The numbers you've provided don't make any sense. How often have you been directed to take them? Has your dentist checked out this issue? This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ...

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... ...

Toothache aching pain

Hi I'm a young guy still in highschool I freak out all the time but anyways I worried about my tooth it got infected and said I needed a root canal and the tooth beside it is all right but the one beside it is throbbing and it hurts to push its my front tooth I don't want to lose it at a young age please help ## Hello, Jared! How are you? I'm sorry about your tooth ache! A root canal doesn't constitute losing the tooth. As detailed by the NIH, it involves drilling down into the tooth to remove the roots that have been damaged by the infection and then the tooth is usually capped. This eliminates the pain and prevents reinfection. The other tooth may not be infected itself, it could be painful due to the infection in the other one, but only your dentist can let you know f... ...

Have you seen a dentist or do you have any appointment with one? Some people do get some relief with over the counter items such as Acetaminophen, Naproxen or Ibuprofen, however, being nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, you have to be cautious in your use of them, especially if you take prescription medications or have other health issues. ## I just want to know if meloxicam helps with toothache pain?

Tooth Ache Pain Reliever

NAPROXIN OR IBUPROFEN, WHICH IS BETTER ## Hi IETTY, Depending on the dose, both of these medications could effectively handle the pain associated with a toothache. Some people however prefer Naproxen over Ibuprofen because of certain side effects and that it may be easier on their stomach. Others find a few hundred mgs of Ibuprofen to be more than sufficient for a toothache. There are just many different reasons for choosing one over the other... One patient review I found stated that 400mgs of Ibuprofen every 4 to 6 hours was sufficient enough to take care of their toothache; although I haven't come across any specific details on Naproxen's equivalent dose for this same treatment. I think it will simply come down to which medication you react best to. Have you tried either one ... ...

I got a tooth pulled out last Friday and they didn't give me any antibiotics, just something for pain which I could not get filled. I've been in pain since then. Is there anything I can take or do to stop the pain and make the swelling go down? ## What did they prescribe that you weren't able to have filled? In many cases, over the counter medications, such as Ibuprofen, or Naproxen can help with the pain and swelling, but you should only take them if it is safe for you to do so. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation, and increased risk of bleeding. ## I was giving Tylenol 3.

Tramadol 50 Mg and tooth pain

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.
