1323278 tn?1298126088 Acetaminophen far below the toxic dose taken on a daily basis can lead to liver damage. While ibuprofen can upset the stomach, there is a second drug, Cytotec (Misoprostol) that can protect your stomache while taking NSAIDs There are also enteric coated NSAIDs that do not dissolve in the stomach but dissolve in the intestines. We should always let our doctors know all of the medication, including over the counter, herbal supplements, vitamins and other substances (Medical Marijuana?

Avatar f tn Hey there, I'm a nurse and these are my suggestions (in no way am I an expert, but this is what I normally see doctors requesting in hospital).. 1) If you're taking a high dose of ibuprofen (600mg or more) at once, ensure there is SIX (6) full hours between your next dose to ensure you do not take too much in a day. 2) Each and EVERY time you take ibuprofen, have at least a glass of milk before you take it, and better yet, something to eat to help with stomach irritation.
Avatar n tn Atleast 3 times a month I have episodes lasting about 3-4 days of severe upset stomach and diarrhoea; while emptying my bowels and after, I have severe burning sensation around my anus that I feel like I cant (or dont want to) contniue emptying my bowels anymore. Sometimes I have blood on the tissue while I am cleaning. Recently I was given a course for H.pylori. My condition has not improved in anyway.
Avatar n tn For about 2 years now, I have been experiencing bad stomach aches, weakness, hair loss, weight gain (sounds like fun, eh???) And the doctors simply cannot find out what is wrong. They thought I had adrenal insuf. and put me on cortef for 1 year, only to find out (after all that!!) that they never actually tested me for it, they just assumed that because I wasn't feeling well and I was weak that that was it...and in fact, I do not have it.
790669 tn?1465192699 I know better than that now, but Ugh..I'm so super upset and emotional. I've got so much going on in my life it's unreal and hard to focus on. I've worked in my dads business since I was 19. I don't get a weekly check of course but he pays me cash. Sometimes I do their bookkeeping, answering phones but most of the time I'm a laborer. He does footings, french drains, etc. etc. Alot of manual labor stuff. I use a shovel, that's my tool!
Avatar f tn I've had an upper GI series that didn't show anything a clear abdominal CT , gluten allergy test, and I've taken prilosec and ranitidine suspecting reflux with no relief. Ibuprofen does seems to help. I do worry about taking Ibuprofen while I have an upset stomach and also the amount of ibuprofen I need in a day to feel better. If I wanted to feel comfortable all day, for instance, I would probably need about 400mg every few hours, and I wouldn't want to take that much.
Avatar n tn I noticed them really increasing when I started taking Sam-e, which is a natural mood elevator, but in thinking back, these pills upset my stomach and caused gas, which may have had more to do with it.
Avatar f tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Try not to eat big meals, more so in the night. Also, ensure to take an early dinner.
Avatar f tn When this vertabae is out of joint, the stomach will be upset and feeling like vomiting. A chiropractor can check your back to see if this is the case. Watch your stools and if you see any black stools, see your doctor. Black stools can mean bleeding in the stomach and could be from a stomach tumor. Pepto Bismal can cause black stools also. Hope you are feeling better soon. Peppermint helps me and sour lemonade. Peppermint stick ice cream also helps me.
Avatar m tn Now I have a bit of a sore kidney from the procedure, and still some stomach upset related to that, but nothing like the 4 or 5 hours I used to spend after a workout, feeling like I had been kicked in the nuts or something...
Avatar m tn I then had a little bit of stomach upset but then had some anti depressant and anti psycotic meds and my stomach began to go crazy and I came down with bad heartburn and acid reflux I was urinating all night then next day my penis was aches and pains and feels like itching inside Urinating has changed also my stomach is bloated i have been constipated Went to GP was given omeprazole Will I be ok?
Avatar m tn However, I gradually cut back until I was down to 2 cigarettes per day and I was ready to divorce this bad habit. I have had a little bit of an upset stomach and a sore throat. Only one night did I have insomnia and night sweats. But I was really ready.. I just woke up one day and said, I am done! I have no desire to smoke a cigarette. Do I have cravings? Yes I have had some. But my desire to quit is so much stronger. I am very excited that I have quit.. I am not TRYING to quit..
Avatar m tn I recently had root canal w/infection treatment done and have been taking Ibuprofen 800mg every 6 to 8hrs as needed for pain. I get an upset stomach when I do. I wanted to try taking Tylenol instead so that I could avoid the upset stomach. How much time should I Iet pass before doing this. Or should I just take half the Ibuprofen dose? lrod870.
Avatar f tn These drugs are used for the management of mild to moderate pain, fever, and inflammation. Ibuprofen should be taken with meals to prevent stomach upset. I hope this helps.Take care and best regards.
Avatar n tn I try to squeeze it out and only a hard stool comes out. 5. The sweating stops and the stomach cramp subsides. I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn Make sure you don't take more than 1200mg ibuprofen and 4000 mg Tylenol daily . Take with food to reduce stomach upset.
Avatar f tn Today is my 8th day of quiting. I have had a little bit of an upset stomach and headache. Took ibuprofen and drank lots of water. The withdrawals are not bad. I am excited about making it 8 days and today is almost over.. That is too cool.
Avatar m tn Oxy- I remember my stomach was still upset for 44 days. I actually remember that. It was taking so long. You gotta remember, you used pills for how long? It takes way longer than 2 weeks to straighten out everything. Try and have patience. At 2 weeks, you are definitely still detoxing. Hang in there.
Avatar f tn Tylenol would be easier on your stomach but ibuprofen might work better and should not upset you too much if you take it with food. If you have a sensitive stomach right now I would try tylenol first. If it doesn't work in 2 hours, it is perfectly fine to take ibuprofen. Hope you feel better.
Avatar m tn But, I'm still tired, sleepy and weak. My stomach is often upset and i'm taking the Bentl more often. PVCs more often. Taking ibuprofen or tylenol about 50% of the time.
Avatar m tn Depends on type of infection and if you have any other conditions Cough? 2weeks Fever? 1week Upset stomach? 2weeks Fatigue? up to 4 weeks If you are immune compromised you would be diagnosed my medicos and treated with IV antivirals.
Avatar n tn If I need to take a narcotic, it helps the narcotic work better and longer. But it can cause stomach upset and even GI bleeding. (Percocet has Tylenol (acetaminophen) in it so you never want to take that in addiction to your Percocet.) You can also talk to the pharmacist about ibuprofen and how best to take it with your Percocet. (Also some people find good relief with OTC Aleve.
Avatar n tn Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory drug and the 800 dose is quite strong. This drug can upset the stomach and should be taken with or after food. Some doctors prescribe omeprazole to protect the stomach when taking Ibuprofen, but if you are using the Doxycycline, you will not be able to have any antacids. If your doctor has prescribed you with these medications, he/she should have instructed you on how to correctly take them.
237053 tn?1258832026 I just take ibuprofen when I feel really bad.
Avatar f tn I am really getting depressed with not feeling well....its taking a toll on me and my family. The nausea/upset stomach doesn't cause me to be completely "down and out" (it did before the Prilosec), so I can function, but its just discouraging to have an upset stomach 3/4 of the day. I haven't ever vomited, and only occasionally have intestinal upset. Any advice would be great.
1099361 tn?1258665857 As far as I know, tylenol, is the only pain pill I can take without stomach upsets... very bad.. I don't want to upset my ulsers... so , I need to find some pain medication to replace the norcos.. I am down to 1 norco a day.. finally!! I could probably just stop taking them now if there were something easy on the stomach for pain... that is not addicting or harmful to the body... anybody know????
Avatar n tn If she continues to be inconsolable despite snuggles and distraction and it is not normal for her, I would get her checked out asap. Another thought- ibuprofen can cause tummy upset if given on an empty stomach.
