9. dentists can be so irresponsible
Tylenol, besides not working, is hell on your liver. I'm sorry the codeine doesn't work. I think you need to insist on an opiate and if your dentist does not care to file the appropriate DEA paperwork to get you effective painkillers, then you need to find a dentist who will. And you also need to file a letter with your state dental association complaining about your inability to receive effective medication.

The only way we are going to be able to put a stop to the torture is by making our voices heard. I am damn mad about this issue. A friend's father was refused adequate painkillers for stomach cancer for MONTHS while he lay pleading to be put to sleep because of the incredible pain.

I am tired of dentists and doctors being more concerned with avoiding a filing of paperwork than with caring for a patient's severe pain.
