Hello Ari, Thank you for the question.
How long have you had this complaint? Have you seen a dentist?
If you are taking multiple drugs, you should know whether they have drug interactions with one another. Drug interactions that can occur are drugs that can reduce the effectiveness of other drugs or drug side effects become greater. Mefenamic acid is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works to relieve inflammation and relieve pain. This drug has interactions with clozapine (reduced clozapine metabolism), amitryptilline (reduces the removal of amitrytilline from the body so that levels in the body are higher), and clobazam (reduces the removal of clobazam from the body so that the levels in the body are higher).
We recommend that you consult your dentist first to find out the cause of this toothache because toothache can be caused by a variety of conditions (for example, gingivitis, periodontitis, tooth abscess, cracked teeth, etc.) which may require further treatment. You can take paracetamol to relieve temporary toothache and apply cold / warm compresses to the sore tooth area. Don't forget to keep your teeth healthy by brushing your teeth regularly. Furthermore, in the future, you should not take the drug without a doctor's recommendation, considering that you are also taking the four drugs. This is to avoid unwanted drug interactions.
Hope this answer helps you.
