Your amount of pain is irrelavant.

Never, ever, take any pills more often than prescribed. If the pain is so bad that the pills aren't doing their job you need stronger pills.

Ask for vicatin, it's strong and effective.

Yeah, having bone removed will do that to you. It will just take a little time. Most importantly, do not disurb the clot you have in the socket. If you rinse/suck that out then you will end up with a dry socket and that hurts for a longer time.

You can continue to take 2 every 4 hours; studies have shown that combining NSAIDs like ibuprofen with narcotics can have a synergistic effect. So you can also take 4 OTC ibuprofen every 6 hours. If that doesn't provide enough relief, talk to the dentist about a higher concentration hydrocodone. Most dentists will not prescribe things like percodan, percocet, oxycontin, etc. Be careful of the acetaminophen dose. What you have now has 500mg; Lortab 7.5 has 500mg as well, but Vicodin ES has 750. Norco 10 has 325. Max daily dose of acetaminophen is generally around 6000mg/24hrs. A one time toxic dose is anything over 7gms for an adult.
