When will these pain pills kick in?

My tooth hurts like a mother and can’t get it operated on for a week so was prescribed pain pills. It’s been an hour and my tooth still has this sharp pain. When will the pain meds kick in?

Didn't the doctor tell you to crush them up and snort them???

Sounds like an abscess and you may need antibiotics...

[@404217,JS1992] they take a day or two to have an effect

[@516864,ozgirl512] thanks
Put a plain old aspirin over the tooth and bite down if you can. If not let it dissolve over the tooth.

[@824678,PainfulTruth] alright might try that thanks
Do not cut open an ibuprofen gel cap and squeeze the liquid onto the tooth. That shit tastes horrible.

Sometimes holding cold water in your mouth against the offending tooth for as long as you can bear can help, as can brushing the gum above the tooth to make it bleed which can help release pressure. These were recommended to me by a nurse as interventions. Obviously don't damage the gum though.

I use mouth wash and keep it in my mouth on the spot that is painful for about five mins or less
