Is it a good idea to take percocet and Advil (ibuprofen) together?

Is it a good idea to take percocet and Advil (ibuprofen) together?

Simplify regimen: Ideally you should take only one analgesic at a time. Percocet is a combination of oxycodone and tylenol (acetaminophen). Advil is ibuprofen, a different medication. Try to use as little Percocet as possible and only if you really need it for severe pain to avoid dependence and tolerance. If the pain is milder and you do not suffer from ulcers, kidney disease or are in anticoagulants, it is ok to use advil instead. ...Read more

Hi I'm taking Percocet forms herniated lumbar disc. I'm having & am wondering if it's ok to take Advil (ibuprofen) 800 mg along side Percocet?

No drug interactions: There are no drug interactions between these two medications. However, please be aware that Advil (ibuprofen) is an aspirin based medication, and the more you take, the greater the risk of GI side-effects like stomach ulcers, etc. . . Since you are being prescribed percocet already, please contact your doctor, to inform him/her of your desire to add Advil (ibuprofen)--to be sure that they are in agreement. Good luck ...Read more

Will taking a Tyelnol3 or Percocet along with the tech going slow be better at helping with pain during Saline Ultrasound? Will stronger med then Advil help

Will taking a Tyelnol3 or Percocet along with the tech going slow be better at helping with pain during Saline Ultrasound? Will stronger med then Advil help

Pain during ultrasou: There is usually no pain during an ultrasound unless the area being ultrasounded is tender. I would stay away from Motrin until the day after the ultrasound if you may get a biopsy. Motrin can interfere with the platelet activity which can prolong the bleeding if you are doing a biopsy. Good luck and feel better! ...Read more

Which is better for body in long run for managing severe cramps with endo: round clock800 mg advil (ibuprofen) or OCCASIONAL percocet replacing several advil (ibuprofen)?

Hard to say: There are risks for both approaches. The risk of using controlled substances seems greater and I usually recommend the 800 mg advil (ibuprofen) three times a day for the duration of the menstrual cycle. If this is longer than 1 week each month then further consideration should be given to the regimen ...Read more

11d post vasectomy. Alternating percocet, Advil (ibuprofen) 400mg, & taking herbal baths (uva ursi, marigold, witch hazel). Is pain/swelling normal for this long?

Highly variable...: Post-vasectomy pain/swelling varies greatly from virtually painless with no swelling to severely painful with a huge swelling; the degree and frequency of such wide variation seems reflecting surgeons' skill.. Nonetheless, such situation is acceptable as long as improving surely ; slowly day by day. How long does it take to resolve? Occasionally, maybe up to 2-4 weeks. So, wait and see, ;. .. ...Read more

Of course: It is common to experience pain after wisdom tooth extraction. For mild and moderate pain use NSAIDs and Tylenol (acetaminophen) OTC. For severe pain: Percocet as prescribed and alternate with NSAIDs. If you experience severe pain 3 days after wisdom tooth extraction, visit your surgeon. ...Read more

Should have been more clear, what is safe timing for staggering percocet \u0026 ibuprofen? Can I alternate every 2 hours? Sooner? Longer? What's safe.

Too Many Unknowns: Percoset=oxycodone + acetaminophen. Oxycodone, an opiod narcotic, promotes drowsy/confusion/constipation, response fades & easily becomes addictive, Acetaminophen primary problem is liver damage. Ibuprofen ↑es clotting, thus cardiovascular events. Look up agents on rxlist. Com (ignore adds). Bigger issues are why taking & multiple internal personal health/lack of health issues to start with. ...Read more

Do pharmaceutical companies make an alternative to percocet, such as mixing the pain medication with ibuprofen instead of Tylenol (acetaminophen) to save the liver?

Do pharmaceutical companies make an alternative to percocet, such as mixing the pain medication with ibuprofen instead of Tylenol (acetaminophen) to save the liver?

Ibu could be worse: Acetaminophen, when taken at appropriate doses in a adult (no more than 3000mg in 24 hours) has fewer potential adverse effects than ibuprofen and is the preferred pain medication even in patients with liver cirrhosis (though typically capped at 2000mg daily in these cases). Over-dosing can indeed cause liver damage, but prolonged use at normal doses is safe in otherwise healthy adults. ...Read more

I had all of my wisdom teeth removed yesterday with general and local anesthetic. I took Percocet and Ibuprofen yesterday, today I have bloody stool.

Ibuprofen?: How much ibuprofen did you take? It's unlikely a GI bleed after a single day unless you took a bottle of ibuprofen or have a medical history that would increase your risk of this condition. .. But if you have significant blood loss or black/tarry stools (melena) head to the ER to have it checked out. Better safe than sorry. Hope that helps! ...Read more
