Pain
Hi, I had an extraction on the right side of my mouth but also need one done on the left side. How long should i wait between extractions? I currently take paracetamol about 4 times a day for the last 3 weeks for pain in the rotting tooth, how can this adversely affect me? Thanks.

I definitiely would not advise taking paracetemol continuosly without medical approval first.
