and ended up with black tarry stools and constant stomach pain!! She now wants to take tylenol, but I think it's just as bad. Of course, her gastro doc told her to stop taking aleve, but didn't suggest anything for her pain. I think she needs a mild pain med. (darvocet is off the market) and she is allergic to codeine! Sorry folks, this a tall order, but it's my mom and I can;t stand to see her in pain anymore. I know one of you incredibly intelligent people will come up with something! God Bless, Sweetpea
