Hi

Thanks for writing in.

As per your history, your teeth require RCT or extraction depending on clinical or radiographic condition.Meanwhile you may start with diclo- paracetamol combination 50:500 thrice a day along with amoxi- clav 625 twice a day for three days.
Consult your dentist & get your treatment started as early as possible.

Hope I answered your query

Brief Answer:
Take ketorolac 10 mg 2 tablets together

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I told you that medicine will give temporary relief & for permanent relief you need to pursue treatment.Continue with prescribed medicines & in case of acute pain take two tablets of ketorolac- 10 mg dispersible 2 tablets together. These are prescription drugs and need to be taken after you get a prescription from the GP.
Get started with treatment as soon as possible.
