Yes I have been doing the warm saline rinses. We are leaving on a flight tomorrow morning and I will get to my dentist the following day. What I am looking for is a way to safely take pain killers until I get home. Travelling by plane all day tomorrow will be excruciating with this severe toothache...and it is severe. Like pressure under the tooth. The Naproxen 2 x 220mg worked great for 4 hours...now the pain is back in full force. I am in good health and just take t3 t4 medication for a thyroid ( hypothryroidism) ...no other medications. Am allergic to caffeine and codeine. I just wanted to know what I can take for the next 24 hours to get me home. Can I take the naproxen more regularly or would ibuprofin work better . Please help...thanks !
ok thank you. Can I take the 2 x 220mg of naproxen in 4 hours ? or do I absolutely need to limit to just 1 220mg tablet ?I don't want to overdose it but need to manage this pain until I see the dentist. I realize the risks increase for bleeding etc but it would not be a long term dosage just for 24 hours. If I take the tylenol 500mg at the 4 hour mark, can I then take 2 x 220 mg of naproxen 4 hours later and continue this for 24 hours. I do have clove oil and have also been using that.
