Tylenol For Hand Pain
Take Both: Tylenol is acetaminophen, while advil is ibuprofen. Tylenol is better at swelling, but advil will be better for pain. A study has shown that combining the two medications together will provide better pain relief than either one by itself. Take 2 advil and 1 tylenol for pain. Keep smiling. ...Read more
Both are good and : Can be used together. If you have any stomach issues, tylenol (acetaminophen) will be the better choice although advil offers an anti inflammatory effect & pain relieving effect while tylenol (acetaminophen) only works as pain reliever. Also, with any kidney disease or if you are on blood thinners, tylenol (acetaminophen) is your choice of medication. If you have liver disease, you may not be able to use either. Then check with your pcp. ...Read more

What is better for pain after shoulder surgery: lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) or percocet?
Depends: Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) contains hydrocodone and Percocet contains oxycodone, two different opiates. On a purely mg to mg basis, oxycodone is usually stronger but different people react to different opiates differently. If it were me i would start with percocet. You might also the anesthesiologist ask for an "interscalene block" which can give dramatic pain relief for the first day or so. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How long is it safe to use Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain relief? I've had excruciating pain from mouth ulcer on back of tongue for a while, doc prescribed Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen).
Pain: Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) should only be used for short term pain relief. I would say 4 to 5 days max. How long have you had this pain? Was it an MD or DDS that looked at the sore and gave you the Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen)? Mouth ulcers should heal within 7 to 10 days and rarely are they painful enough to take strong narcotics. I would recommend that you see your dentist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Whether advil (ibuprofen) can reduce your hand pain will depend on what is causing your hand pain though so this question is hard to answer. ...Read more
Which medicine is better for painful tendonitis of both hands and wrists. Motrin 800 or Mobic 15 or Tylenol 500 ? Or combination of any two ?
Depends : Meloxicam 15 mg once daily is equivalent to Motrin 800 three times/day. These are anti-inflammatories and often better for tendinitis. They should not be taken together. However, these meds often cause more gastrointestinal problems and are not as safe for those with cardiovascular disease. Tylenol is a safe pain reliever for most but does not treat inflammation. 1000 mg up to 3 times/day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I broke my hand yesterday and got it cast today and when i try to sleep it hurts so badly IV taken tylenol (acetaminophen) but can't take anything else due to crohns?
Elevation: You might try elevating your arm above heart (mid-chest) level. On your back this takes a simple pillow under your forearm. Sitting or standing it is practically over your head, although, resting it on the back of a chair or sofa works, or laying your forearm on top of your head. You might also have the cast checked by the doctor to see if it is too tight. This pain should not last long, a day +/-. ...Read more
