Question: I took 5 Vicodin and a Xanax bar?
Or your jaw muscles got tight holding your mouth open for him to work on you, happens a lot and gives you a lot of pain. Here's how to free up your jaw muscles to get rid of the pain:
Put your fingers on your head so your thumbs are behind your ears. Press into the back of your jaw next to the skull and hold that pressure. After 30 seconds slowly raise your head until your neck is fully extended then open your mouth as far as you can. Release the pressure but hold your head and mouth like that for another 30 seconds.
For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.
It sounds like you've had plenty already. Don't take another. You said you used to take more than that, so maybe that built up your tolerance and is the reason they aren't working. Ask your dentist for something strong than vicodin so you won't have to take so many pills.
Take 800 mg ibuprofen with the viciden. Will do wonders. Most dental pain is caused by inflammation, if it gets to severe call the dentist or go to ER
