cry  I have an apparent abscess tooth and my dentist said to take 4 advils or 4 motrin every 4 hours for the pain and inflammation. I am afriad to do this and nothing else is helping the pain, not even loritab which my dentist said won't help the inflammation.  I am pretty desparate as the pain won't let up and I am on antibiotics. I have never had pain that was so unresponsive to anything. Any suggestions??

I took vicodin for pain after my last surgery - it made me feel like superman.... Great stuff... I would imagine your dentist or GP would prescribe you something like that if you pain is unbearable...

Vicodin, Darvocet, Tylonel #3 are all great for controlling pain. But I agree, do not take the anti-inflammatories if you can help it. I've never had an abcessed tooth but I hear they really can do a number on you. I'm sorry that your in pain, there is nothing like tooth pain! I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks. When I told my doc yesterday that I took 1/2 a loritab, b/c of the colitis, he got a funny tone with me and he went off on a tangent about people who get hooked on pain pills. He told me to be careful.... The z pack has given me a bit of d this morning and cramps. I didn't sleep a wink last night despite taking a whole loritab and antiinflammatories. An abscessed tooth is one wicked pain that doesn't want to quit! I am thinking the pain may be subsiding some today though. This is the 48 hour mark and hopefully the antibiotics should be working by now. Thanks so much for the responses. Y'all are the best!
