I am looking for an OTC pain killer such as Advil to take for back pain and occasional arthritis pain. I have just been prescribed Plavix.
I must respectfully disagree with the other posters. Your only choice of OTC's is acetaminophen (Tylenol). You are not supposed to take any aspirin or NSAIDS (Ibuprofen, Aleve, Naproxen) with Plavix because of the increased risk for bleeding. Below is copied from manufacturer information:
While you are taking Plavix, do not take aspirin or other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) without your doctor's advice. NSAIDs include ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn, Naprelan, Treximet), celecoxib (Celebrex), diclofenac (Cataflam, Voltaren), indomethacin (Indocin), meloxicam (Mobic), and others.
