had my 2 remaining (upper) wisdom teeth removed 9 days ago. i was doing okay but then by last wed i was in tons of pain, went back to the dentist, have 2 dry sockets. they packed clove dressing in there and i am going back tomorrow am to have them repacked. menawhile i am in excruciating pain again, especially today. last night i took vicodin again which i'd taken most of week and this time had really bad reaction; dizzy, sweating, threw up. so i'm not doing that again and regular painkillers don't touch it. is there anything i can do to get relief till tomorrow? i'm miserable...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I used to know but I forget the amount, BUT... it is safe to take (for a limited time only!) a much higher dose of ibuprofen than they say on the bottle. I'll google to see if I can find that info...<br><br>
Ok, sounds like 800mg every 6-8 hrs is prescription strength ibuprofen. I think that is what I would do in your situation.<br><br>
Good luck finding some relief mama. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">
