Yes, you can take Arthrotec for a toothache ... BUT only if it was prescribed for you.
Arthrotec contains a combination of diclofenac and misoprostol. Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. Misoprostol reduces stomach acid and replaces protective substances in the stomach that are reduced by NSAIDs.
Arthrotec is used to treat osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis in people at high risk for developing stomach or intestinal ulcers.
