My husband had a root canal that had to be redone 5 days later. His pain level has been way up the scale from the time this procedure began 1 and 1/2 weeks ago. I called in for an antibiotic 3 days ago and the pain was much better. Then the dentist called today and said he should come back in to finish it because he had a cancelled appt.
After he went in today the pain escalated beyond what it has been and didn't respond to the original dose he had taken before so I gave him two vicodin and three ibuprofen and he's resting. but still hurts and is worried about sleeping tonight. I would like to know how much of each of the three meds he should take together. What is the best combination?
