Looking for options here - herniated a disk in my back - on a 10 day course of prednisone therapy - ibuprofen is contraindicated - but seems to be the only drug (in combo with Oxycodone) that makes the pain manageable. Tyelenol just doesnt cut it - and upping the Oxy only puts me out of commission (sleep) so looking for something that can help me through and leave me in a functioning state
Beware, I would not ask the Dr about any specific pain med. the climate of abuse has many Drs being intimidated, so, ti's a red flag when a patient requests a specific pain med, especially that one.
Best to go in and report your symptoms and allow the Dr to make the recommendation. Also, Tylenol isn't as good for inflammation as Ibu.
