Severe toothache. Taking Tylenol. Feel shaky and full. Is it due to overdose of tablet?

I took tylenol because of toothache and i think i ve takin 8 pills in one day. because the tooth hurt at night i kept taking tylenol hoping to release the pain. but the pain didn t go away so i kept taking tylenol. I m not sure how many i ve took but im assuming 8 pills.After taking it, my body feel shaky and i feel full. it might be because i didn t get to sleep at all or i didn t let my stomach digest food properly. But i just want to know if its a sign of something bad. If it s a sign of something bad, what can i do?

Welcome to HCM forum
Taking so many pain killers and antibiotics is harmful to the body.
If a tooth has deep caries( infected) then taking madicines is not the permanent treatment.
Better visit a dentist for thorough clinical examination of the tooth.
Root canal treatment will save your tooth.
Take care

Thanks for asking the query,

Please donot take any medications in extra doses by yourself without the precription of your Dentist.
According to your clinical symptoms i suspect that you have developed severe infection in your tooth, such type of tooth needs to be treated immediately, antibiotics and analgesics will give you a temporary relief.
I would encourage you to visit to the Dentsit and get the checkup done, take an x-ray of the affected tooth and plan for the treatment of the tooth.

Hope you find this as helpful,

Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

pain in the teeth could be due to many of them being deep dental decay.

please visit your dentist and get it examined graphs can clearly show the extent of involvement in the particular tooth.

Mere antibiotics and analgesics is not sufficient,it requires to be treated by suitable restoration.

Hope it helps.


Take care.

hello and welcome to health care magic,
taking analgesic in over dose especially paracetamol can cause drug induced tissue damage like hepatic necrosis.
central nervous system,cardiovascular system,kidney,liver,lung,skin and blood forming organs are most commonly involved in drug toxicity.
visit a dentist and get your tooth checked clinically.he will do treatment for it depending on the cause of toothache like decay or periodontal problem.
please avoid taking medicines without medical supervision.
take care.
