    The ibuprofen plus codeine medication is the only over the counter medication that will make a dent in your pain.
    Panadol (paracetamol) will bring down a fever; nurofen (ibuprofen) will moderate mild pain; codeine has a mild narcotic effect; this in conjunction with the analgesic ibuprofen is your best bet

    Panadeine extra is the strongest over the counter relief you can get, then take some normal ibuprofen with it.

    Like pp said, go to doc and get a script for panadine forte. I'm actually surprised the dentist didn't send you home with one.
