Careful!: I always caution people not to mix alcohol with narcotics as they potentiate each other's effects. They may be synergistic or supra additive and could be dangerous.

A 30-year-old male asked:

Is it safe to take indomethacin, tylenol (acetaminophen) and allopurinol at the same time?

Yes: Be careful though because Indomethacin and alopurinol are both processed by the kidney so combining them can cause kidney damage, albeit likely temporary. Check with your doctor about whether combining them is the best regimen for you and what your maximum daily dosages should be based on your other medical conditions and your baseline kidney function.

Extreme pain = worry: Any person with extreme tummy pain is worrisome. A doctor's evaluation is needed to be sure the problem is not serious. Examples of serious conditions are appendicitis (needs surgery), cholecystitis (gall bladder infection), gall stones (may need hospitalization), ruptured organ (may need surgery), or twisted bowel (may need surgery). A person with extreme pain should not wait to see a doctor.

Anti-inflammatory: Starting an anti-inflammatory (motrin, aleve, (naproxen) etc) the day before you expect your period, and using if for several days can be very helpful. Keep a diary or calendar! if this doesn't work, see your doctor as sometimes birth control pills can help with painful periods...Or at least make them more predictable so you will know when to start the anti-inflammatory.

There are options: Depending upon the source of your pain, there are several analgesic options. Nsaid's are best for inflammatory conditions , bone and joint pain. There are prescription strength nsaid's as well as over the counter options. Risks are gastric bleeding, increased risk with cardiac or renal disease. Tramadol may be well tolerated , with less nausea than codeine.
