omesar drug interaction with nsaids
Post a Reply
My mother is currently on 20mg of Omesar daily. She is suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and was successfully self managed on 300mgs of aspirin daily. Following a carotid enterectomy she was advised to stop taking aspirin and take paracetamol instead. This was not effective in controlling her painful symptoms and she started to take 400mgs of Ibuprofen daily, which she found effective. However her cardiologist told her she couldn't take this medication in conjunction with her present medication. I would like to know is there a specific reason it is contraindicated? ...

Lyrica 150 mg and NSAIDS- safe to use together?
Post a Reply
Hello, doc prescribed me lyrica 150 mg for burning, tingling and aching on my foot which started after a sprain ankle that happened 4,5 months ago. I didn't want to use it because of the serious side effects described, but I've been using it for a week now. To reduce side effect risk, I stopped taking my NSAID drug (acemetasin, voltaren (diklofenak sodium), Cycladol (Piroxicam), etodolac etc. My pain and burning sensation didn't lessen much and my foot swells sometimes. My question is if I can take NSAID drugs safely with Lyrica and which one is best to use in my condition? It's been almost 5 months and I've been taking NSAIDs most of this time. I used to take cipralex (essitalopram) as antidepressant but stopped taking it with Lyrica, since both effect the nervous syst ...

Allergic To Nsaids Dont Like Narcotics And Tramadol Isnt On The 4dollar List Anymore What Can I Take For Pain Besides Tylenol
3 Replies RSS
I have been taking Tramadol for at least 9 years now for chronic post-surgical right knee pain, back pain, and Arthritis. They just took Tramadol off of the $4 list at wal-mart and Target. I do not like narcotics because they make me feel sick, and have horrible withdrawal symptoms and side effects. I am already physically dependent on the Tramadol so I don't want to make it any worse by adding a Narc to it. I am allergic to NSAIDS to the point that if I take them it will kill me, Tramadol is becoming to expensive, and Tylenol doesn't even come close to alleviating my pain, I am in so much pain all of the time...what pain meds can I take that isn't expensive,works well on severe bone and joint pain and not an NSAID??? ## Actually, Tramadol is classified as an opiate/narcotic... ...

I have been on Tramadol for at least 9 years now, I am SEVERELY ALLERGIC TO NSAIDS, and do not like most Narcotic pain meds as they make me feel "yucky". They just took Tramadol off of the $4 list at wal-mart, and Tramadol is expensive, being allergic to NSAIDS is causing major problems in getting pain relief for me, what else can I take for pain that is not an NSAID, and inexpensive???? ## Hi Mindy, In the link below you can view a chart of prescription and non prescription pain medications ranked from weak to strong. You can use this chart to determine what other options you have as far as switching over to a stronger or less expensive medication (odds are though, if you want something higher up on this list, it will likely be more expensive): You may also want to talk to you... ...

Aleve Vs Advil
1 Reply RSS
Both are NSAIDS but are there any advantages to taking one over the other with regard to long term use? i.e. kidney damage or other long term effects. ## Not really, both the Naproxen in the Aleve and the Ibuprofen in the Advil carry the same types of possible risks and benefits. What you really have to decide on is which one works best for you and if your doctor says it is safe for you to use such a medication. However, you do generally need to take less of the Naproxen than you do of the Ibuprofen to get the same effects. Are there any other questions? ...

non narcotic pain relief
1 Reply RSS
I can not take any NSAIDs due to being a gastric bypass patient and there is too much of a risk of a bleed with these drugs.. I am already on hydrocodone so I can not take any other narcotic analgesics. Is there any other non narcotic chronic pain reliever out there to supplement the hydrocodone. Can't take tramadol now because NYS classified this as a narcotic. My doctor is going crazy trying to find something for me and has had no luck so far. ## Why can't you take another narcotic? They are very commonly combined to give someone better pain relief. People with severe pain are often given a long acting narcotic along with a regular or instant release one for breakthrough pain. But if your doctor doesn't want to combine them, you could switch to a different one that's s... ...

I have had trouble with all of the NSAIDS for years which I previously had taken for my arthritis. I started Duexis in September and have had good relief with only one a day. Recently the heartburn has returned. I am not sure if I should just stop, reduce it to every other day or third day, increase tums. Anyone with similar issues. ## Hello, June! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. You may need a higher dose of the Famotidine that this contains, or you may need to add another medication, such as a PPI like Prilosec. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Duexis as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and increased risk of bleeding. Have you tried anything else to reduce the heartburn? Do you watch what you eat? Refrain from alcohol and aci... ...

Long term use of Meloxicam and allergic reactions
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking NSAIDS for the past 21 years. The last 10 years it has been Meloxicam 15mg/day. Over the past 7 years I have steadily become allergic to many things. I am now severly allergic to corn, soy, wheat, nuts and mold. My Asthma is now severe. The Meloxicam was no longer able to control the pain from my arthritis so a year ago out of desperation I went gluten free and found that my Arthritis was so much better but I was still going into anaphylactic shock over things I was eating that I had never had a reaction to when I was younger. I am now 58 years old. Over the past year I have gone into anaphylatic shock 16 times and I am now gluten free, corn free, soy free and nut free. In the past month I was still having some allergic reactions and heard that Meloxicam and other dru... ...

Flexerol and Chest Pain
1 Reply RSS
I suffered from severe sciatica about 8 months ago. I was taking heavy doses of NSAIDS as they were the only thing that helped with the pain. My doctor proscribed me flexerol to help with muscle spasms. 2 weeks into taking flexerol as proscribed, I was hospitalized for what I thought was a heart attack. It turned out I had tetracardia and my heart rate was 200 bpm. The doctors told me I was having panic attacks and basically dismissed me after that. I thought this was crap as I am 28 and have never had any problems with anxiety or panic attacks. I immediatlywill quit takinga Flexerol. After discharge I had continuing problems with chest pain and shortness of breath. It is now 6 months later and I am completely off NSAIDs. I still have problems with chest pain and shortness of breath. Th... ...
