funny you say that, i just took 120 capsules of an offbrand nsaid, a bottle of tylenol ER, and im about 25 caps in on this ibu bottle. Tylenol really is better for your stomach? when I google it, it says ibuprofen isGood job making the appointment! I wouldn't worry too much about the infection spreading yet. I had my abscess (on my front tooth) for over a year, possibly two. The endodontist said based on the size of the abscess it had been there at least a year and a half, possibly more than 2 years. It did not even spread to surrounding teeth.
I have a somach ulcer, from taking ibuprofen for so long with all my dental work I had done last summer. I am still trying to wean off Prilosec, but this recent surgery set me back and I had to up my dosage again. If you think it might be a stomach ulcer, do not take ibuprofen! Take tylenol instead. Ibuprofen thins your stomach lining. I wasn't even taking the maximum dosage.
As far as probiotics, it is a good idea to take them with antibiotics, just not at the same time. Take the probiotic at least two hours after the antibotic. The antibiotic wipes out infection, but it also kills healthy gut bacteria, which can lead to unpleasant side effects like diarrhea. Probiotics replenishes the healthy bacteria and can help prevent the side effects.
Along with organs aching, have started to get two minor rashes below my bottom lip when I take these, or its the anbesol I'm using in my mouth or eugonol, but something causes a rash on my face now. Not an irritated one, but one noticeable if I look long enough to see the redding.
At first I didn't realize taking nsaids so much would hurt your stomach so severely, I thought only a certain type would do that. So be careful everyone, don't do what I did. These stomach problems are killing me now along with the tooth. But I will say, my stomach suffered from these problems BEFORE I took NSAID/acetominophen, but taking them + a few drinks of alcohol here and there definitely impacted me. My plan is to go to the doctors after I get this tooth fixed, and I'm not looking forward to it but my stomach is next on my to do list with health..
