Pain killers like ibuprofen 600 ????



Recommended Posts

I have to have a tooth surgically removed they will put me to sleep and then afterwards the doctor has prescribed ibuprofen 600 of course it's after hours and I just now remembered we really have to be mindful of what medicines were taking ...oops ...is that a pain killer that we can take?

No, absolutely not. I know doctors are afraid of prescribing opioids these days but he's just going to have to.

No unfortunately NSAIDs are a no-no. I would call the office (despite after hours) and ask for another Rx and explain your situation. In the meantime try taking Tylenol up to 600 mg (3 pills?) as an alternative.

Thank you guys so much !!!! That's what I thought I will be calling the surgeon's office tomorrow and ask for something else. The thing is, doing the paperwork, I even put down that I had had the bariatric surgery cuz they wanted you to list all your surgeries in the past 5 years and I even put down under the medications that I take the bariatric Vitamins and Calcium. I guess it's so easy to just get so busy in your life that you just kind of forget these things but I'm glad I looked at the prescription when I got home and thought about that. I am so very thankful to have all of you help me when I am just not thinking straight

liquid Tylenol works faster because there's nothing to dissolve,
