Had wisdom teeth removed, nausea, vomiting. Are these side effects?

I recently had my wisdom teeth removed and was given a prescription of T3 and Ibuprofen , it’s been 5 days and my facial swelling is slowly going down but there is still quite abit of pain... On day 3 and 4 I had experienced nausea and vomiting ... the first time I think I may have forgotten to eat before I took the medicine but the second time I had ate and drank a lot of water and I ended up vomiting up my water and a bit of blood, I am going to be going to the doctor today after work to get checked out but I was just wondering if these symptoms sound like they are side effects or if I am just miss-using them at all? I take two T3 s and one Ibuprofen every 4-6 hours a day.

as per the information provided by you , the nausea and vomiting is due to the common side effect of the antibiotic and painkiller you have been taking,
the blood in your vomit is from the extraction socket, so need not to worry .
i would suggest discontinuation of the antibiotic since you already had 5 days course but anti inflammatory your pain killer can be continued for few days more as per requirement.
it usually takes 1 week time for pain to go completely.
take care

hello and welcome to HCM forum,
i would like to inform you that do not worry, these symptoms are due to the side-effects of oral antibiotics prescribed to you, just keep your diet normal and visit your dentist so that he/she can prescribe you some antacids as well.
besides you should use antibacterial mouth rinse(betadine), this is hasten healing and resolve swelling.
i wish you good health,
take care.
