What pain killers can I take other than paracetamol? My wisdom tooth has been hurting for 3 days now and I need something, its so bad I cant open my mouth to chew today sad paracetamol don't do anything for me is there anything I can get over the counter that's stronger that im allowed? im 29+5 if that makes any difference.

My gp prescribed me co-codamol ... They are quite strong. You can get weaker versions from the pharmacist (they should still be better than paracetamol)

I think you could take co-codamol. but get advice from chemist/dr.

tbh, if it's that bad I would go to an emergency dentist.

ask chemist, but as far as they have told me it's only paracetamol.

You need the dentist! I've suffered with tooth pain in pregnancy and found a numbing gel helpful, got it from the pharmacy in boots

I was given co-codamol for migraines during pregnancy.

You need a dentist! They can advise on pain killers.
