    Percocets have aCETaminophen (Tylenol) in them. So okay to take ibuprofen along with. In my dental experience with a dry socket, I tried every narcotic under the sun (back in the day) but when my dentist finally ordered ibuprofen 800 mg tabs twice daily, it was like magic. Pain gone. Made sense, because swelling and inflammation is what it's for. Happy patient here after that.

    Wow I can’t get over the reply. I’d like to see some official get their teeth extracted and sent home with Advil! This country is messed up. It’s not my fault over- prescribing doctors hand out ( or used to!) pills like candy! They are at fault, not me who is suffering for a month now with excruciating pain and 15 lbs later in weight loss cause I can’t eat due to pain! Now I’m scheduled for two extractions in 3 weeks which once again will leave me in pain! I can’t take Motrin or Advil because it interacts with one of my heart meds. My big question is, how can it possibly be a problem still? If doctors can’t prescribe, how is it an issue? If “doctors “ aren’t handing them out who is? This is a really bad problem! Ok so my level of pain has made me actually think of where can I get relief? I’m not turning to the streets but I bet you millions are! That right there is the problem! It’s inhuman to make a person suffer! Something has to be done about this! 12 pills for Excruciating pain is a JOKE! I’m pissed off because legitimate non drug abusers have to suffer all at the hands of crooked doctors ! That’s how the problem started. Why am I suffering because of that? Why do I have to suffer because of them? It’s very obvious that a person who has to have extractions because of an abscess is Legitimate. It should be based on how Legitimate the pain is. Not a universal rule!!!!

    Hi and affirm everything you said above in your post. It’s been over 2 weeks now, so I’m wondering how you’re doing. I check the site every few months or so, but looks like I was here earlier in November . I have a thread down below, called “Chronic Pain Patients: Where do we go from here” or something like tat and I talk about the problem you’re facing with pain control. I’m doing this on a cellphone so please forgive my errors and whatnot. I’ll try to check back in to see your progress soon.

    I can say that I am one of those fast metabolizing people. Yes, it's REAL. I just had an implant put in yesterday in my mouth and my dentist already knew anesthetic wore off quickly on me from doing my previous fillings. I warned him that my body gets rid of it QUICK. I told him the story about the epidurals I received with giving birth to my children and how THAT wore off way before it was supposed to and I wound up giving birth feeling EVERYTHING!

    My dentist yesterday, knowing my anesthesia problem, tried something new but apparently that burned off just as quickly as I felt him closing up the wound with stitches. He gave me another shot but boy.. that sucked.

    I wish doctors would do more research on the fact that there are MANY different body types, metabolisms, etc. I need far more pain meds than the government is saying should be given out, due to no fault of my own. I do NOT abuse my medicine, I don't get "high", I take them to just remove the pain, that's all. I just want to function normally and take care of my family!
