Hello, I am completely stressed to find out about an interaction. I am prescribed oxycodone 15 mg for a wisdom tooth. This wisdom tooth is infected an extremely painful! I am scheduled for an extraction tomorrow morning. I work from 2am-10am and there is no way that i could work my shift with pain relief. My question is am I ok to take 1 of my painkillers 4 hours before the wisdom tooth extraction? I will be given local anesthetic and just wanted to make sure that it is safe if i have taken my painkiller 4 hours before I receive the local anesthetic. Like i said there is no way that i could work my shift without the relief. Thank you!
