Okay, it’s 4am and I’d really like some sleep.
I woke up at 3am with a spitting tooth ache in two teeth. One on my upper teeth and one on my lower. I thought it might just go away so I laid there until 3:50 and then I took 3 Motrin. It’s now 4:16am and the pain has not eased off at all. How long does it take for that stuff to work..should I take another one?
My dentist is only open on Wends.
Lovely, I know…
depends on empty stomach or full? Empty stomach it will get absorbed faster & work faster, say in 10 min but full stomach, it may take 30-45 min.
For an infection like this – it’s pretty deep, so it might take a couple of days before there is noticeable improvement, and a few more days after that for the swelling to completely disappear, if the antibiotics are working. If you don’t see any signs of improvement after 5-6 days, you should call the doc – some other treatment approach might be needed. Motrin is unlikely to do much for this type of swelling.
Don’t take more. It usually takes 45 minutes to an hour to work. Hope you feel better. Take some more in about 4-5 hours to keep the pain away. You are going to call a dentist tomorrow right?
30-47 minutes. Once it kicks in, you’ll feel better and let me know, how it goes. Don’t do anymore, drink some juice or H2O. Get enough sleep!
For me it takes about 35 minutes . But i drink it with a glass of milk . I hope that helps .
