I had a root canal last week and have began having alot of pain from it again. The dentist gave me Percocet and Tylenol with Codeine to take as needed. I have not taken any of those since Wednesday and just took Ibuprofen and or Tylenol. Well, lastnight my tooth started hurting really bad again. I can't eat because if something just touches that tooth, I about scream. My question is, is it ok to take the prescribed meds in the TWW, or just tough it out until I see my dentist again? The OTC meds aren't helping at all anymore but I surely don't wanna take the RX if it could be harmful. What do ya'll think?
