He's on Metronidazole 500, ciprofloxacin hcl 500, hydrocodone 5-325. If he stops Norco can he take ibuprofen 800 for pain. He is having severe back pain, more than pain from colostomy. He needs anti-inflammatory. He's in so much back pain. Will there be any interactions?
Hello Mary, First yes he could do just as you said without any problems and still if the pain is too severe like at bedtime take his hydrocodone/APAP at bedtime but I would rather you talk to the doctor about that. the pain should be letting up soon. But be aware that the one antibiotic Ciprofloxacin can cause pain in many areas of the body so he can't stop that he must finish it but that would be a good question for the doctor. Hope he well be feeling better soon. ps if during the night he might need some Norco make sure you have 3 to 4 hours away from 800mg of Ibuprofen. Again I would like you to talk to the doctor about all of this also. and feel free to write us back and let us know how he is doing. Have a good evening and remember it well get better dear. Give you husband my best. Chuck1957
