I've been diagnosed with peptic ulcer. My question is what do doctors give for pain when you have pleurisy going on too? Tylenol doesn't do anything for my pleurisy and I know I can't take ibuprofen because that irritates my stomach and of course leading cause of stomach ulcer. Please help! Thanks for any advice!
If you mean in general then something like Voltaren Gel (it's a topical NSAID so you avoid risk of ulcers). If you mean while you're in pain from your current condition then doctors may choose to use an IV form of medication (most likely an NSAID) to avoid your stomach altogether.
The pleurisy would have to monitored closely though to ensure any pain medication doesn't mess with your breathing.
