Brief Answer:
Add Tylenol 1000mg every 8hours to the Ibuprofen!

Detailed Answer:
HI,

Add tylenol 1000mg every 8hours to this. However, the best treatments remains this tooth being pulled off. Also, more powerful medications such as Vicodin require a prescription and you would need to talk to your doctor.

I wish you well.
