    Tylonal w/ codine does NOTHING!!

    I got the old wisdom teeth out today, and my jaw really hurts. I took tylonal with codine...and it does nothing. I would think that the codine would at least put me in a drooling stupor, but no. I am going to boycott tylonal with codine from now on that I know it does nothing. I think I might call my doc and tell him to give me vicodin. What is your favorite pain med? Has anyone had a similar experience with this stuff? Is it save to take two if one does nothing?

    Does anybody know how long it will be before I can ride again? this wisdom teeth business is a real b!tch to deal with. On top of that, the pain is making me surly...

    vioxx 50 mg a day in clinical trials with wisdom teeth showed superionr pain control and it is not even a narcotic! I gave it to my husband when he had his taken out. He threw away the Lortab 5s.

    I had all 4 of mine pulled at the same time and it wasn't that bad. Gave me Percodan but I only took one. Went to Taco Bell a couple hours later. No hard shells though.
    If you just got it done, a day makes a big difference. Hope your recovery goes well.
    If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough...

    HOOK ME UP!!! just kidding. that might be slightly illegal. speaking of things illegal, this guy at school offered to buy up my pain meds last week when he found out I was getting my wisdom teeth out...man, he'd be dissapionted with this crap I have now.

    I had dental surgery once and they gave me 292s. If anything they knock you out. It depends how MUCH codeine. If you're looking for major pain relief, darvocet or empricet are what they give you in hospitals. After abdominal surgery they sent me home with empricet (of course, in the hospital right after surgery they hook you up with morphine).

    Those things did nothing for me when Ihad my teeth pulled, I also had vicodin it did nothing. I kept the Tylenol 3 around though, it worked great on my headaches

    I had 2 wisdom teeth pulled and didn't need as much as an aspirin. Then I had to get the third pulled and besides being impacted it was wraped slightly around and into the jaw which had to be broken to get it out....percocet for a week 2 at a time.....still hurt but I was so messed up I didn't care.

    Try sipping on cold water. You may have to do so almost continuously, but if any of your pain is attributable to swelling, it should help quite a bit. Otherwise, retrogrouch that I am, I like plain old aspirin.

    I had 4 pulled on a Wednesday and was riding by the weekend without any medication, but pain doesn't affect me at all .

    Codiene is pretty weak.
    Hydrocodone is a little higher up there ('vicodin', 'lortab', etc...) but still weak. That stuff would just make me nausous, more than anything.
    The most efficient narcotic (pain relief to nausea/respiratory depression ratio), I believe is morphine/heroin.

    I was perscribed oxy one time... that works pretty well. Doctors seem to be thrown in jail nowadays if they perscribe it though.
    You're prolly being underperscribed. Tylenol w/ codiene seems to be a pretty weak choice for getting teeth pulled. Hell, that stuff is OTC in Canada I believe.

    If you wanna ride... I wouldn't take a narcotic if I were you.
    Personally I would either ride without pain meds, or ride with Ibprofen.

    Vicodin is one of my three current prescriptions for my separated shoulder. I've heard dire things about addiction to it, so I have to say I was relieved when I observed myself merely getting sleepy from it. I'm going to renew my Motrin 800 (anti-inflammatory/pain relief) and my muscle relaxant Flexoril, but not the Vicodin. I enjoy moderate drinking and the occasional, ahem, enhancement, but the potentially addictive stuff scares me. I suppose I'm lucky that my situation doesn't involve as much pain as yours; sorry, man.

    well, guys, its is the day after and already I'm feeliong a lot better. I am just very dissapointed that my so called pain reliever did jack *****. It actually made me throw up last night, and my clots popped...more blood in my mouth.

    Worst thing right now is the constant taste of blood on my mouth. even though the sockets have stopped bleeding, I have this blood/iron taste that makes me not want to eat at all. I have this feeling I might have to force food down my mouth to keep myself from getting sick.

    The worst side effect of most of those pain killers is the constipation. When I took some vicodin I couldn't go for like three/four days.


    Thats really uncomfortable!

    I know last time I had teeth pulled I was completely put under, slept through hole thing best decision I ever made! I have a deathly fear of needles.. especialy when it comes to the dentist. Fall asleep wake up 16 teeth gone was a fairly uneventful experience and pain was not really that bad.

    you probably ought to get yours out, fubar. The longer the wait, the longer the recovery time. if one of your teeth actually beds into the jawbone, they actually have to use a saw to get it out. For me, they just cut open the gum and pulled it out.

    BTW, the surgery itself was not painful, it is the recovery. I was put under for 30-40 minutes, and it felt like 1 second.

    I've had hydrocodine when they've removed my wisdom teeth, and I didn't have problems at all. In fact, they gave me an entire perscription, and I enjoyed saving them for rainy days....

    I've also used vicodin for pain killers, and they do wonders.

    There's a drug called percecet (spelling?) I've taken that's completely numbed pain before, but that was for my back pain.

    Vicodin and Hydrocodone are the same thing, as is
    Lortab.
    I recently filled an Rx for Hydrocodone after a root canal, pretty
    potent stuff. First day dealt with pain very well (hey, I was
    happy ), second day was nausea city, they did not
    sit well (actually only took one, carried thru the day).
    I can't understand how someone would want to take
    hydrocodone, percocet, percodan etc if thats the way
    it makes one feel, even with the buzz.
    Codiene is available OTC almost everywhere but the U.S.

    Huh, the dentist told me to wait until they cut through my gums..Which I had never heard before. I'm going to look into it..No way I wan't a saw in my mouth.

    Yes, you can get tylenol or atasol with codeine OTC in canada. You have to ask for it at the prescription counter- Atasol 8, or its genetic equivalent. However, for the big stuff like Atasol 30 or 292, it's prescription.

    However, when I was in the states, I noticed that at drugstores you can get Naproxen (Naprosyne) on the shelf. I've only been able to get that on prescription. It's an anti-inflammatory, or NSAID, like Toradol. However, I expect the one I saw was probably a weaker dosage, sort of like a very strong Motrin.


    One thing I've never had is wisdom teeth pulled. The dental surgery I had was for gums. I once had a tooth pulled when I was very young, all I remember about it was they put me to sleep! I just remember the mask coming down over my face and that was it.

    Yeah, we can get naproxen over the counter here. It's great stuff.

    Crappers, I wish I'd known I could get the codeine over the counter yesterday! I would have stocked up! Oh well. I guess it's more motivation to head back to Canada again soon...

    I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled at the same time- the dentist said there was no other way, and he shot the painkillers into my jaw, then he gave me the codeine to take so when the painkillers wore off, the codeine would still be effective so I wouldn't have pain. Then he gave me some kind of ibuprofin that was heavy duty. By the time it was all said and done, I was just down for the count for like a day. I was good to go the next morning.

    It turned out to be not as big of a deal as I'd worked myself up to thinking it would be.
