Common Questions and Answers about Diclofenac with tylenol


Avatar m tn Hi, welcome to the forum, Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including acetaminophen (tylenol), aspirin, diclofenac and ibuprofen, are associated with an allergic adverse effects, ranging from mild rash to life-threatening allergic reactions which also includes breathing difficulty. In such cases it becomes difficult to select appropriate pain killer. Breathing difficulty can be treated by adrenaline and corticosteroids in clinic setting.
Avatar m tn Tylenol (acetaminophen) is the recommended medication for relieving minor aches, pains, and headaches in people with liver disease. For us with cirrhosis we are advised that we can take up to 2 grams of Tylenol per day. That is 4 extra strength Tylenols. Acetaminophen is quite safe for the liver—unless combined with alcoholic beverages. However, when taken in excessive quantities or when combined with alcohol, acetaminophen may cause death due to liver failure.
7510956 tn?1411675017 This is what people on the liver transplant waiting list are told. Tylenol is safe for those with advanced liver disease as long as they do not take higher than the recommended dose. In cirrhotics commonly 2,000 mg per day is recommend. In those with more advanced cirrhosis it can be even a low maximum dosage. The people you hear about having liver damage from Tylenol either took a very high dose or took the drug over a period of months or years.
2105146 tn?1334597383 NSAIDs presently on the market that have been frequently associated with liver injury are aspirin (ASA), diclofenac (Voltaren), and sulindac (Clinoril). Ibuprofen (Motrin) has been reported to cause severe liver injury in people with hepatitis C. A new generation of NSAIDs, known as the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors, has recently been approved by the FDA.
Avatar f tn Sorry it took so long to respond! Doctor thinks it's sacroilitiis. He said it has to heal on it's own but I'd probably be in a lot of pain for at least a month. He also said if it wasn't better in a month then to come back and we would re ***** it. I really liked this doctor! He took the time to explain things to us and he actually examined my back! The other dr just checked my reflexes and said "we don't know what's wrong with you". He prescribed Tylenol 4, flexeril and mobic.
Avatar f tn When taken at recommended doses, acetaminophen, the medicine in TYLENOL®, is the preferred pain reliever for patients with chronic, stable liver disease. Do not use TYLENOL® with other acetaminophen-containing products. Always read and follow label directions. Taking more than the recommended dose (overdose) of acetaminophen may cause liver damage.
Avatar f tn Hi, welcome to the forum, Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including aspirin, diclofenac and ibuprofen, are associated with an allergic adverse effects, ranging from mild rash to life-threatening allergic reactions. In such cases it becomes difficult to select appropriate pain killer. The next we usually recommend is paracetamol (you are allergic to this drug too). The reason for such allergy is cross reactivity which is seen in this class of drugs.
537974 tn?1213748515 But basically since October 2 I have this dull headache and shoulder and neck pain which won't go away. Not with strong pain killers like Ketorolac and diclofenac, Metamizole, etc. I have taken so much that my kidneys and liver started to suffer, so I am really carful not to take them unless the pain is really killing me, the muscle relaxer I am taking is orphenadrine, and it helps but still no full relief.
Avatar f tn However tylenol with codeine (tylenol 3) is as effective as the nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents like ibuprofen and diclofenac. The therapy may have to be personalised also. You could start with ibuprofen, and if not completely effective, you may try tylenol 3. Best..
Avatar n tn It sounds like you have options and the means with which to follow up. Good luck to you, and please write about your experience with it if you choose to go with Suboxone. I think there will be plenty of people who are interested in hearing more.
Avatar f tn Hi, In your case, with a history of breast cancer, it would be best to get a bone scan done to rule out any metastasis to the bones. You should also discuss with your doctor the role of calcium and alpha calcidiol in your case. Use local diclofenac gel and physiotherapy and see if that helps. If the pain still persists you should schedule an appointment with your orthopedician. Goodluck.
Avatar n tn Also has a consistant ache for about the past couple of days with no relief from asprin, or tylenol, or anti-inflamitories. It feels like I have been hit in the back of head, but I haven't. Should I be concerned? Any Ideas? Much appreciated!
Avatar n tn 5 mg of hydrocodone which is the opioid (narcotic) component and 325 mg of acetaminophen (tylenol). Diclofenac is a strong NSAID (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). These two medications are in totally different classes...one is a opioid and the other is an NSAID. Strictly based on pharmacology, the hydrocodone/acetaminophen is stronger. However, these two medicines should really not be compared in that fashion as they each work better than the other for different types of ailments.
Avatar m tn Hi astroturf I would also describe myself as anxious and a worrier I'm not on any meds I do clench my teeth and grind them at night I have a TON of floaters, since I was a kid I have migraine with aura I cannot see the spots in the dark, unless I'm watching TV or on the computer etc They are most noticeable against light backgrounds, the sky and when glancing at anything with contrast. horizontal blinds and lined paper are awful.
513154 tn?1340228889 NSAID have been shown to be effective with osteoarthritis.
1387175 tn?1326404597 Norco has 325 mg of tylenol and Vicodin ES has 750 mg of tylenol. The Vicodin ES has more tylenol, which is not good for you at all. The max amount of tylenol that can taken safely every 4-6 hours is 1,000 mg. So you should not take more than 1,000 mg of tylenol in a 4 hour period. The Vicodin ES is actually lower in strength than the Norco because it contains less opioid, which is the component that is really helping with the pain.
473384 tn?1210209842 I see other ppl's posts who find that when they stop, the pain they were taking narcs for is so much less than they thought, and they manage with tylenol. strange how that works. I wish I had the guts to go ct this week... and of course my neurotic brain tells me I will be the one person that has poor results from the surgery, or complications, and that I will have been a stupid idiot for having had the surgery, etc etc etc.
Avatar n tn Ms. kas, 29 years old, presents to the triage nurse at the local emergency department, complaining of severe general;ized abdominal pain. She describes the pain as sharp and intermittent. She states, "Over the last four days, I have not been able to have a bowel movement." She states that she is able to drink liquids and is urinating without difficulty. Bowel sounds are present in all four quadrants, however, they are hypoactive (decreased or quiet peristalsis).
Avatar f tn Hello and Welcome to our Pain Management Community. I haven't taken Arthrotec. Arthrotec is a combination of diclofenac and misoprostol. Diclofenac is a NSAID (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory Drug) it works much like Ibuprofen or Aleve. Misoprostol is a synthetic (man-made) substance that stimulates secretion of mucus in the GI tract. Mucus helps protects the lining of the stomach. It's suppose to help reduce ulcers sometimes caused by a NSAID.
1331887 tn?1301456968 Hello, I have a positive ANA Screen positive of 1.160 titer with speckled pattern. Also I have osteoarthritis. I have pain on my finger (to hard to work with that pain)my knees and feet. The doctor don't send me to any specialist. just make me a prescription for "Diclofenac 75mg" also told me to take Tylenol,but that not help. I was thinking in looking for a second opinion, because I think that I need a better treatment. What does this ANA test mean?
Avatar f tn They are safe to take together. It'd be similar to taking an Aspirin with an opiate. It's not similar to Tylenol (acetaminophen) as Tylenol is not a NSAID. I understand your caution and anxiety about taking new medications and two meds together - I'm the same - and it's wise of you. However unless you have asthma or are allergic to the ingredients in Flector you should be just fine. I'm sure your physician thought of these things before ordering it.
Avatar f tn Pinched or compressed nerve at the level of cervical spine either due to osteophyte or disc protrusion give rise to pain in arms along with tingling sensations. Try pain killer diclofenac, physiotherapy along with hot compression for 4-5 days.

447134 tn?1205269469 He had an x-ray taken today which came back fine, no signs of internal injuries, broken ribs or else. The doctor told us to give him pain medication (tylenol), to have him start to breath deeply and to take it easy otherwise. He is still in pain and has trouble breathing when he walks fast, walks up the stairs or runs, sometimes even when he stays too long in one position and then moves. To him it feels like stiches between the ribs.
553516 tn?1255870819 Patients who take these medications (regularly or daily) should undergo monthly laboratory testing for the first three months of therapy and then every three to six months because of the association between these medications and liver disease.
Avatar n tn So now he is requesting the upper GI evaluation. I am currently just taking extra-strength Tylenol. I took Tylenol arthritis, but it didn't seem to help any more than just regular extra-strength Tylenol. The pain I feel in my chest causes me to feel like it hurts to breath deeply. It would sometimes cause me to wake in my sleep and I felt like I needed someone to burp me. When I would finally belch it would be from way down deep. My doctor put me on Ferosol to help restore my iron.
Avatar n tn Hi, You should try to do some neck stretch exercises and some physiotherapy. Consult your physician before you begin with them. Apply local diclofenac gel and hot fomentation to your neck and arm area. Adequate sleep and hydration are important. Try some antianxiety medication like alprazolam. If the headaches still persist consult your physician at the earliest.
Avatar n tn He's 25 and his body is killing him because it is difficult for him to walk or even wake up in the morning. He is eating Tylenol (1000mg every 4-6 hours) to relieve some of his pain but once the effect of the Tylenol is gone, the pain comes back again. He also have arthritis so the pain is even worst. Another friend of his is also experiencing the same symptoms and is having a fever. What kind of disease could this be? Could it be the flu?
473384 tn?1210209842 I am taking oxycontin and percocet (60-90mgs oxy/day and 15-20 mgs perc/day, depending) and have been on these for 1 year (I started with 1 percocet/day, HA! like that was going to last!). 6 months ago I started taking diclofenac (an NSAID) and apparantly it works REALLY WELL for pain b/c I am supposed to stop taking it 7-10 days before surgery b/c of bleeding issues. I stopped it last week and OMG I can't believe how bad my pain became.
