Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have been having pain in my lower tooth for the past two weeks and I have been taking Amoxicillin 500 mg, Ibuprofen 400 mg, and Tylenol 325 mg and nothing seems to be working as I cannot get any relief.

Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

I understand your concern. You have had pain for two weeks and taking antibiotics and analgesics but there is no relief. It means there are some problems with your gums or teeth. You have not mentioned about nature of the pain, your medical history, and area of pain. There are many causes of toothache like tooth caries, dental abscesses, gum infections, any type of injury, ulceration, etc. Never take any medication without the advice of a doctor. Consult your dentist to find out the root cause and treatment. You need dental treatment, medicines are not enough alone.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
