How long after taking aspirin should I wait to take daypro (oxaprozin)?

Aspirin. There is little reason for delay if the Aspirin dose has been small (example prophylaxis for cad). Daypro (oxaprozin) can be started 24 hrs later if Aspirin dose is therapeutic for antiinflammatory reasons (example rheumatoid arthritis, where 8-10 Aspirin might be used per day). If there is renal insufficiency a longer delay might be necessary.

How long after taking aspirin should one wait to take daypro (oxaprozin)?

Depends on dose. Aspirin and Daypro (oxaprozin) are nsaids (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Aspirin inhibits platelets more. Platelets are needed for blood clotting. Both agents can irritate stomach lining. So taking both at the same time can increase the risk for stomach bleeding, etc. However, it is generally safe to combine baby Aspirin with another NSAID in patients who have heart disease. Wait at least one day. Read more...

Oral Lidocaine. Buy an oral anaesthetic, the kind you spray to the back of your throat to numb it, except use it in the surgical area. Try to find one that is meant for the mouth (swish and spit) rather than the kind for the throat. It will improve each day and this should help you tolerate the pain a bit more. Read more...
