I recommend 600mg of ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, or generic) about every 4-6 hours. If you are still uncomfortable despite the ibuprofen, you can take about 650mg of Tylenol (acetaminophen) along with the ibuprofen. If you have been given a prescription for Norco (Vicodin) then you may take that with the ibuprofen instead of the Tylenol. Do NOT mix Tylenol and Vicodin!
