For me – The only thing that will stop the pain is antibiotics. The infection is what is causing the pain. SO, get antibiotics in your self asap. My dentist charges a $35 emergency visit to just do an xray and give me a script. Amoxycilan is $4 at WalMart. Until they kick in, the best combo I’ve found is to take ibuprofin – a lot of it – to reduce the swelling along with Alieve. Alieve lasts longer so you can sleep. When I was taking hand fulls of Tylenol I would wake up every couple hours in pain and need more. Orajel and ice packs for those times when the Alieve and Advil are wearing off. That’s how I deal with the pain. But antibiotics are the only way to stop the pain.
