User :   hi, the left side of my face hurts because of my tooth but i am not going to get operated for another month can you suggest something for the pain?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   i need some type of med
Doctor :   The tablet that you take for pain shall only be temporary
User :   the last medication they gave me was tramadole
User :   i know
Doctor :   You can take IBUPROFEN 400mg to 600mg each time you have pain
User :   thats advil
User :   ?
Doctor :   Yeah check the dose of it
User :   ok but can you give me an ordanence for some tramadol
Doctor :   You can have Ibuprofen only after meal
User :   i know
Doctor :   Tramadol is only a mild analgesic
Doctor :   Ibuprofen is better at high dose
User :   but i need something stronger than advil because it doesnt work i tried for over 3 weeks
Doctor :   Did you try EXCEDRIN
User :   no i donmt know what that is
User :   is it stronger than advil
User :   ?
Doctor :   Yeah
User :   ok and is this drug over the counter at the pharmacie
Doctor :   Actually if TRAMADOL is an prescription drug
Doctor :   you need more dose than that
Doctor :   Yes EXCEDRIN is OTC
User :   ok well i was prescribed tramadol and it really worked well
Doctor :   Ok
User :   can you precibe me some more please?
Doctor :   Then you require higher doses than Tramadol and any equivalent is a prescription based
User :   *prescribe
User :   ok then can you prescribe me some please?
Doctor :   I cannot give you prescription based and this is not valid at your pharmacies
Doctor :   But I feel that EXCEDRIN and ADVIL can help you
User :   then what is the point of this
User :   you cant fax me one or email me a prescription ?
Doctor :   Sorry, if you are looking for prescription drug, this is not the right place
User :   ok then can you direct me to the right place please?
Doctor :   I have no idea if an online consultation where a prescription is given and I do not think
User :   and how many excederin can i take at a time i weigh about 280pds
Doctor :   The best way is to call up your doctor's office tomorrow and ask him to call up the nearest pharmacy for telephonic prescription
Doctor :   Maximum two
User :   ok and every (hours)?
Doctor :   I suggest for one tablet, once every 8 hours after meal
Doctor :   Instead taking it when you have pain is wise
Doctor :   Try to put salt or baking soda at the affected tooth
Doctor :   That helps
User :   well its my jaw that is affected now im on penicilin also
Doctor :   Ok
User :   ok well thankyou very much doctor
User :   bye
Doctor :   Bye for now
