Hello. Have you contacted your prescribing physician? You are better off with a narcotic pain medication rather than an nsaid (ibuprofen) if you are taking it that frequently. When are you going to get your tooth taken care of?

You need to inquire with your treating physician about a prescription for Percocet. Does that provide a satisfactory answer to your question?
