Drug Dosage To Relieve Toothache?
, I want to ask. I have a toothache, I want to take medicine cataflam. But, I don’t know how many doses I should take. I’m 18 years old,. I want to go to the clinic, but I haven’t opened the clinic yet. So to get rid of the pain, I take medicine first. So, what dose should I take?
Hello Tri, Thank you for the question.
Cataflam is a drug containing potassium / potassium diclofenac which functions as a pain reliever by overcoming inflammation. This drug is widely used to treat toothache complaints. This drug is available in two dosage forms, 25 mg and 50 mg. Unfortunately, to determine the appropriate dosage for you requires further examination by a doctor because the dose to be given by a doctor will be adjusted to the severity of the toothache you feel. Due to limited information about your complaint, you should not use the drug until you consult with your dentist further. You can choose other pain relief medications such as paracetamol and you can follow the instructions for using the drug printed on the packaging. You can also rinse with warm salt water to help relieve temporary toothache.
Toothache itself is a symptom that can be caused by several health conditions, which of course will vary. Some of the causes of toothache are:
wisdom teeth growth
To get the appropriate treatment for your complaint, please check with your dentist so that the doctor can examine your teeth directly and perform other examinations such as x-rays to determine the cause. After knowing the cause, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment for the condition.
I hope this helps.
