I had a root canal on my #31 tooth Monday morning and today is now Thursday. I am on a 10 day regimen of 1 Augmenten pill twice a day and have been prescribed a few Tylenol 3 (that I only take when the pain is unbearable).
Since the procedure I have had mild day pain (only sometimes requiring medication) but moderate-pretty rough evening/night pain as well as increased swelling and tenderness at night.
I also have a large bump on the outer portion of my jaw right below the treated tooth.
Is this all of this normal and what can I do extra to help with the pain, tenderness, and/or swelling?
Also, my practitioner had me take 2 Augmenten pills the to kick off the antibiotic regimen rather than just 1 so I will finish day 10 with just the morning pill.
I am taking OTC pain killers when I treat the pain but am not taking a T3 pill.
