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.

Maybe (not) . . .: You'll need to do a bit of detective work. Find the ingredient label for any cold & pain relievers that you've tried & reacted to including delsym (dextromethorphan). Look for common ingredients that could explain your allergy. It may be a coloring or flavoring agent. Consult an allergist for specific information. Get as much specific info & details as possible before going to see doc. For instance, what pain reliev. ...Read more
