Dr. Miguel Cano answered

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Combination: Usually narcotics are given (tylenol (acetaminophen) with codiene, vicodin, percocets, etc). Take these as recommended but remember you can also take Ibuprofen or naprosyn (advil or aleve) and the combination work better together. Try to move around, avoid over-exerting yourself, & call your doc if your pain is worsening. Sometimes a change in meds helps also. Take good care of yourself.
