I Am In Pain

What to do for a terribly painful jaw after four wisdom teeth removed besides ibuprofen? I don't want to take any narcotics. Don't want to mess with that. But today of every day since the surgery, my mouth hurts like hell.
Make sure you don't have dry socket.

Ibuprofen should work?
[@6861,YoungPoet345] When did you have them out?

[@815640,splishsplash] yeah, I did see a white strip in the back of my mouth but it looks like it could be a stitch. I'm not really sure. To be honest, it's hard to tell cause I'm not a dentist. But I do know I'm in a ton of pain. Yup. I had them out on Thursday last week.

Did your doctor give an a prescription for Ibuprofen or are you taking it over the counter??

The prescription is for 800mg. Over the counter is 200mg a pill. You need 4 over the counter to make one prescription pill. Make sure you take it with food - which is tricky when you are in pain. But you don't want to throw up with stiches.

I'm sorry you don't feel well. I would call your Dr in the AM
Extra strength aspirin Tylenol, ibuprofen, Aleve anything like that will help a little

Hmm, you could try Tylenol? If you don’t wanna take any other painkillers I think that’s as good as you’re going to get. How many Milligrams of Ibuprofen are they giving you?

[@631811,Franny] I would take other painkillers but I don't want to mess with opioids is all.

[@6861,YoungPoet345] Yeah i understand. I don’t wanna take them either, you could ask your doctor to see if they give you a higher dosage of ibuprofen to see if that works

temporary, low-level narcs can do wonders for pain

but I will admit finding the right one is key to making the work well without addictive affects
