Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi thanks for getting in touch, I'm sorry to hear about what's going on. You're in a lot of pain after extraction, can't get to a dentist till tomorrow and have been using dihydrocodeine and paracetamol plus a dose of oramorph is that correct:?
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. I'm sorry to hear about your tooth symptoms. Unfortunately we aren't able to prescribe using this service but I'd advise the following:
-Use warm saltwater rinses twice a day
-Buy some Corsodyl mouthwash from any pharmacy and use this twice a day also
-use paracetamol (and can also take ibuprofen 400mg three times a day - with food) for added relief. An extra dose of oramorph may also potentially be needed.
-If you need antibiotics despite this you can get them from your GP or an online prescribing service (I'll include a link at the end) or you could just visit your local walk-in-center which is usually attached to your local A&E and staffed by out of hours GPs.
Here's the link:
I hope that helps and you feel better soon. All the very best.
