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

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. . .

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
