I have swelling on the left side of my face from a broken tooth. It started monday night, I got HYDROCODONE/APAP 5/500TAB. I have to take it four times a day I have taken a total of 6 pills when is my face going to be normal again. It hurts off & on the swelling stinks

Thanks for visiting our site and for your question. Have you seen a dentist? The swelling is likely due to an infection and will not go away until the source of the infection (likely the fractured tooth) is treated. If you have not seen a dentist, I urge you to see one AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to prevent further risks from infection. You may also need antibiotics.
