Wisdom teeth removed, taking omidazole, panadeine, ibuprofen, nausea, spacey , light headed, no bleeding

Hi, my name is Emma. I am 38 and had three wisdom teeth removed under local anaesthetic three days ago - two upper and one lower tooth . I am taking 500mg Ornidazole antibiotics twice a day and Panadeine and ibuprofen for pain. I ve had bad nausea for two days, which is easing now, but wondered if it s normal to feel so spacey and light headed. I literally want to sit down all the time. I ve been sensible about eating and drinking and have had no bleeding after the initial few hours.

The nausea is mainly due to ornidazole you are taking and feeling of light headedness may be due to the the effect of codeine present in PANADEINE.
Gradually the symptoms will settle down and once the drugs are withdrawn,you shall be all right completely.
