... comes back after maybe an hour. I have already taken two today and about to take the third.How soon before it become effective. Today is Saturday and I can,t get to the dentist until Monday
I was given Loratab after having a Goider/Thyroid problem in my neck and a surgery. They gave me enough for 2 yrs, I have no Idea why, but it started to act like that with me, I would take it and 2 hours later the pain would come back.
So I started taking more and more, up to 80mg Doses every 2 hours. I didn't think it was very addictive until I became dependant. One day I took about 120mg after not eating for 24hrs and Blacked out on the cement patio at my work, next time I know I'm in the hospital with a cracked cheekbone, concussion and broken tooth, I had fallen face-first and had a seizure, I DELT with the pain from this accident because it scared me so much that I had about overdosed and killed myself.
Plus the Hospital bills didn't help. Afterwards for ANY pain I found that when my doctor prescribed 800mg Ibuprofen it worked better than Hydro's.
See if your dentist will prescribe the Ibuprofen, it seemed to work much better and last longer with me. Then again I have a small body type so it may have just worked better with that.
