How much pain relief?

  1. I know I should probably know this head really hurts. I have a major toothache -- I see the dentist tomorrow. I am sure its infected. How much Ibuprofen/Tylenol combo can I safely take>>>The pain just won't go away.

    It will tell you on the label. Aleve works better for me than Tylenol.

    I have taken the recommended dose for Alleve but it only holds me about an hour. I know in the hospital we do Tylenol/Alleve alternating I just can't remember the rotation or mg. Its been a while since I've given it that way.

    Your best bet is to contact your doctor/dentist's answering service, or call your local pharmacy. We are unable to give medical advice here.

    Hope you feel better soon!
