Suggested Regimes for Pain Relief for Healthy Adults

Here are some guidelines for pain relief:

  • Ibuprofen: Take 200-400mg every 4 hours. The maximum dose is 3200mg in any 24 hours.
  • Paracetamol: Take 2 x 500mg every 4-6 hours. The maximum dose is 4000mg in any 24 hours.

In cases of severe pain, it is safe to take the maximum dose of Ibuprofen and Paracetamol together. Remember to take these medications with plenty of water and preferably with food.

If you are unable to take Ibuprofen, we recommend Paracetamol on its own.

Please note that Codeine doesn’t provide very good pain relief for dental pain.
