What pain medications are available for a person that is allergic to tylenol (acetaminophen) and motrin?

It depends: The answer depends on the symptoms associated with the tylenol (acetaminophen) and if the Motrin reaction extends to other nsaids (aspirin etc). True allergy to Acetaminophen (tylenol (acetaminophen)) is unusual. If there is NSAID sensitivity, most can tolerate Celebrex (despite the warning) since being a cox-2 antagonist.

If nerves are what transmit pain, why do some medications work only on neuropathic pain (gabapentin) and some work on muscle related? (tylenol)

If nerves are what transmit pain, why do some medications work only on neuropathic pain (gabapentin) and some work on muscle related? (tylenol)

Different reasons: "neuropathic pain" generally refers to pains that are either generated by, or result from, disordered nerves involved in the transmission of pain. "normal" pains, such as aches from strained muscles, suggest tissue injury; that's the function of a normal pain reporting system of nerves. Anti-neuropathic pain medications work best on disordered nervous systems, common analgesics best on normal ones. ...Read more

Hello, I am suffering from shingles from a week now and few affected areas have started to cure while few has blisters on it. I did undergo 7 days Valtrex and Tylenol medication and now the doctor has advised me to start with postherpetic medicines. When

Hello, I am suffering from shingles from a week now and few affected areas have started to cure while few has blisters on it. I did undergo 7 days Valtrex and Tylenol medication and now the doctor has advised me to start with postherpetic medicines. When

Shingles treatment: Although 7 days is often sufficient for valacyclovir (Valtrex) treatment of shingles, if new blisters are continuing to appear, treatment should be extended. Check with your doctor. Presumably the "postherptic" medicine is prednisone or other corticosteroid (?). That's the only kind of treatment normally used to minimize the nerve pain that can follow shingles (post-herpetic neuralgia). ...Read more
