Mystery pain killer

#1  Postby Macdoc » Oct 20, 2018 7:39 pm

Wicked toothache blew up last night and on advice of my doc I went to emergency and spent a good few hours listening to audio books as the ache got worse.

Finally got a anti-biotic script and three tiny "strong" painkillers ....the do not drive jobbies.

When I got home around 1 am I finally popped one along with the first a/b round but really did not seem to do much.

big surprise ....no identifying marks except this

anyone have a clue.

Hmmm. Did a Google Image search, but couldn't find one with that particular identifying symbol.
If it was a prescription painkiller, my guess would be that they gave you tramadol or oxycodone.
If it was a non-prescription one, then it might've been something as mundane as ibuprofen.

Toothache is demonic in its intensity and relentlessness. Had a bout of it myself just recently. The standard self-treatment (cotton-wool wad soaked in clove oil) didn't work, so I spent a sleepless night swishing ice-water (every three minutes) until I could get to a dentist the next morning. :nono:

I know the feeling, I've forgotten about more novacaine shots to the roof of the mouth than most people will ever have. :lol: :waah:

That only used for chronic pain.

I do not recognize these tablets but maybe a generic version of something. As you were advised not to drive probably a narcotic component, the dose of three was to take all at once, or 1 every 4,6,8 hours? Dosages of 3 at a time are not very common. If it was a NSAID advice would more likely to be about taking with food more than this may make you drowsy so although that would be a good thing to take it seems not to be what these are.
