My toothache has been keeping me up for days. I searched the net and found out that I shouldn't be taking either Ibuprofen or Mefenamic acid because of "an increased risk of bleeding in the gut" or something like that. :( Is there anything I can take? My tooth is killing me. *Please don't suggest going to the dentist. I'm waiting for another 2 weeks. By then, my doc will probably take me off Coumadin.

I TAKE WARFARIN FOR ATRIAL FIBRILLATIONS. I ALSO HAVE VERY SEVERE ARTHRITS AND FIBROMYALGIA....I AM IN CONSTANT PAIN WITH NO LETUP. I TAKE ULTRAM AND TYLENOL, BUT TO NO AVAIL.....I AM STILL ALWAYS IN AGONY. TO THE POINT THAT I CANNOT FUNCTION ON A DAILY BASIS, NOR WALK WELL. HOWEVER MEDICATIONS LIKE IBUPROFEN AND NAPROSEN, ESPECIALLY THE NAPROSEN WORK VERY WELL FOR ME. BUT THEY CONFLICT WITH THE WARFARIN. WHAT OPTIONS ARE THERE FOR ME?????
International Normalized Ratio (INR) is a blood test that helps determine the right warfarin dose for you. The INR tells us how much warfarin is in your bloodstream and is a measure of how fast your blood clots. A high INR means you are more likely to bleed (your blood does not clot very fast). A low INR means you are more likely to form a clot (your blood clots very fast). All patients will have an INR goal depending on their medical condition(s).
But Nooooo - You ready for this? Deep Venous Thrombosis!! Sheesh, so now I'm on rat poison (Warfarin) for the next 6 months on top of everything else! I really don't think this year can get much worse - thank goodness it's almost over!
I have had a small bowel resection for obstruction from fibrosis and I have moderate diverticulitis with intermittent bleeding. 1. Since I cannot take aspirin with Ibuprofen, is Warfarin my only option? 2. If I decide to stop the Ibuprofen, is there another Anti-inflammatory I could take that would not be contraindicated with Aspirin? 3. Can I just ignore the A-Fib, i.e., is the Ibuprofen supplying sufficient Anticoagulant effect to prevent Stroke?

I don't take aspirin and ibuprofen at the same time - I alternate between aspirin, ibuprofen and acetamenophen (Sp?), so I won't be taking too much of either. But I do take fish oil and flaxseed oil caps every day. I had not taken aspirin nor ibuprofen since posting this, but a few days ago I took a single dose of aspirin, for the first time since then. But I noticed yesterday I had the SAME bleeding, in the SAME PLACE! I wonder what's going on?
They are essentially harmless. Taking aspirin, ibuprofen or mega-doses of omega-3 can make you more likely to have small bleeds. If you take warfarin, you might consider getting your INR checked to ensure it is not too high. It never hurts to get checked, but I wouldn't rush to the emergency for this problem.
Normally, when a healthy person takes a fall, they may be sore for a day or two, but a little ice and ibuprofen can get them through. But there isn't a lot of information in your post. Like do you have chronic pain or any medical condition or medication that could make a fall dangerous? For instance, if you were on warfarin or a blood thinner, a fall could cause a serious problem and probably needs to at least be reported to the doctor. Did you hit your head at all?
I am having some severe side effects concerning short term memory loss, irritability, and fatigue.

As long you followed the label direction, you are within normal dosing range, based on what you posted. Over the counter ibuprofen (Advil) is 200 mg of ibuprofen per tablet. So, your dose of 2 tablets is 400 mg per dose, which is within the normal dosing range. Ibuprofen is best taken with food or milk to help minimize stomach irritation and always take it as directed, whether if it is prescription or over the counter. NyQuil has several cold and flu products.
I went to a hospital emergency room where a doctor performed an ultrasound test. The ultrasound showed that I have a Hematoma . I am using warfarin for atrial fibrillation plus an 81 mg aspirin. My Pt inr was 2.4 . My calf swelled and began to throb. The next day my calf developed a small "blister like" bubble that eventually burst open and there was some slight bleeding. I used ice for 48 hours (20 mins) off and on. 5 days ago I saw my personal physician .
I'm on Warfarin and I read Turmeric increases Warfarin anti-coagulation activity. I want to decrease Warfarin dose but I need to keep my coagulation time (TP/INR) in 2.0 to 3.0. How much turmeric I would need to take if I took 2.5mg Warfarin?
I've had it in the past and used Ibuprofen. It would last a few days. Now, it's been 7 months and I can't take Ibuprofen with Cumadin. I've had scans, x rays, blood tests, pain tests, etc. All negative. So, the docs think it's muscular. I live in pain everyday as it wraps around my chest and back and makes breathing difficult. Wondering if I should ask to go off Cumadin in order to take the Ibuprofen? Or will all of that complicate things?

In addition, because aspirin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), it should not be taken with other NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen or naproxen. And because it can thin the blood, avoid taking aspirin with anti-clotting medications, such as Coumadin (warfarin) or Plavix (clopidogrel), unless advised to do so by your doctor. The bottom line here is that if you’re healthy you shouldn’t take aspirin without a cardiovascular risk assessment by your doctor.
If you take a prilosec with the ibuprofen it helps protect the stomach,but you still have to be aware that high doses can affect the kidneys and stomach I have found from experience that 800mg ibuprofen is very effective.Max safe dose is 2400mg/24hrs. Also 2 x 500mg tylenol every 4 hrs max 4000mg/day works quite well for me as well. For many people after the rebound pain of opiates subsides they are often all that is needed.

Medications (NSAIDs). Aspirin and drugs such as ibuprofen and naproxen are called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Due to anticoagulant (blood thinning) properties, **** quai may increase the risk of bleeding and should not be used at the same time as other blood thinning drugs including aspirin, warfarin (Coumadin) or heparin. Similarly, do not use **** quai if taking anti-platelet drugs such as clopidogrel (Plavix), and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) or naproxen (Naprosyn, Aleve).
Till that time, you can take foods rich in vitamin C especially the citrus fruits like oranges, papaya, grapefruit, raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, and pineapple.

I have had a small bowel resection for obstruction from fibrosis and I have moderate diverticulitis with intermittent bleeding. 1. Since I cannot take aspirin with Ibuprofen, is Warfarin my only option? 2. If I decide to stop the Ibuprofen, is there another Anti-inflammatory I could take that would not be contraindicated with Aspirin? 3. Can I just ignore the A-Fib, i.e., is the Ibuprofen supplying sufficient Anticoagulant effect to prevent Stroke?

For some people Tylenol does nothing so they're told to take the ibuprofen.....and some docs okay to take BOTH the Tylenol and Ibuprofen up to 3200mg....Your doctor is the one that knows the condition of your liver best. Always check with him. I would be concerned with people that start their treatment with a low platelet count. Right now I'm watching someone on Infergen with a platelet count of 35 and history of 2 previous GI bleeds. Obviously, you wouldn't want to give him Ibuprofen.
Fish oil may enhance anti-platelet action of Aspirin and other NSAID's ( COX-1 type, Ibuprofen, others). Therefore, use of fish oil together with aspirin (especially daily low dose as used to prevent strokes and heart attacks) may be harmful. As with everything else you may read on this website, the decision to use fish oil or not in combination with these drugs must be taken by patient and nephrologist together, weighing potential risk and potential benefits.
