I'm on Oxycodone and 600mg ibuprofen every 4-6 hours for a lower back sprain., can I replace the ibuprofen with robacacet? The pain is still intense.

I'm on Oxycodone and 600mg ibuprofen  every 4-6 hours for a lower back sprain., can I replace the ibuprofen with robacacet? The pain is still intense.

No.: These are similar narcotics. What you need is a good doc. A back sprain never requires heavy narcotics such as you are taking. Get a second opinion or should I say a third after mine. If your diagnosis does not change (I doubt it.) switch to a Pain Management specialist. Prolonged pain can change the way you brain feels pain. This must stop. Do not become a doctor-caused addict. ...Read more

I have a menstrual migraine that will not stop hurting, have taken advil (ibuprofen). Have some oxycodone left from my gallbladder . Can i take one? I'm hurting.

Worried about what?: Is this 1st time you've taken this combo of meds? Did you eat before or after taking this? What activities did you do afterwards? Seems delayed to be noting GI symptoms. Ginger beer (non-alcoholic) is good for your symptoms. In the future, try ibuprofen 1st, re-assess pain, & IF necessary, take 1 instead of 3 Percocet pills. This will help determine which caused GI symptoms. Don't take together. ...Read more
