    It's not good to take too many in a 24 hour period, why don't you go and get your tooth seen to ?

    It won't do you any harm! Obviously not to be recommended - and the combination should help with the toothache more anyway - but in America the daily allowances for paracetomol are much higher than they are here and everyone's still alive : ). Even a doctor's told me to take extra once x

    I think they always underestimate the number of drugs to be taken anyway (don't quote me on that). Good advice from Mollysmum...anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen target the area of the pain where as the paracetemol works more on the brain. So a combination of the two is very helpful. Pop to the pharmacist for proper advice based on your needs with any other medications you are taking though :)
