Taking seboxone from addiction specialist. Had dental treatment , taking antibiotic, ibuprofen, tylenol. Trouble?

I am seeing an M.D. who is an addiction specialist. He has me on seboxone. I have only been on it a week. Two days ago I had dental surgery. I refused Vicodin and told the dentist that I was getting along fine on Ibuprofen when I was at the pharmacy getting Antibiotic Rx I found that he had written an Rx for Tylenol #3...A friend who works for an M.,D. said it was non narcotic and I am supposed to do a "drop" at my Dr.s and I took some (didn' t even work) Am I in trouble?

Hello and welcome to hcm,

Thanks for writing in.
you have not mentioned what kind of dental surgery have you undergone.
Always mention your medical history prior to undergo any treatments.
If you do not have any relief of pain,take analgesics as well as antibiotics after consulting with your dentist.
Please do not take medicines without medical supervision.
get dental check-up in every 6 months.
Maintain good oral hygiene too.
Hope this helps.

Hello there ,

Thanks for writing your query,

You did not mention your dental problems and the surgery you have undergone in your query.

though i suggest you not to take any medication over the counter for pain relief or any antibiotics without prescibtion of a medical practioner.

about your dental problems ,
exact diagnosis can be made only after clinical examination and evaluation by taking radiographs.

so please get the examination done for a concerned doctor.

i hope this helps ,

take care.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Seboxone contains buprenorphine and naloxone...

Tylenol #3 contains 15 mg of caffeine; 300 mg Acetaminophen (paracetamol) and also 30 mg CODEINE...which could tilt the balance of you de-addiction program. You should see your de-addiction specialist and discuss things over.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
