Can i take sinalgen (hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen) and nimesulide before a herniated disc l5-s1 surgery?. I take this 2 for pain

The nimesulide is an NSAID which inhibits inflammation, but also inhibits platelet fxn leading to risk of increased bleeding.

Taking cyclosporine due to liver transplant. I have sinus infection with cold, can I take Nimesulide?

That gives you an aerosolized mist of 1% H2O2--which will kill virus and bacteria on contact, and breaks down into water and oxygen. ...Read more
