Re: Time to quit pain meds but how to deal with pain without

Tony,

Smiling is good, very very good! *l* I'm glad your hanging in there. The w/d symptoms can go a couple of cycles before they go for good. You can also use Immodium for the stomach issues.

I"m glad your pain is better today, that's always a good thing. Just be careful taking large amounts of Ibuprofen daily....low half-life nsaids such as Ibuprofen have severe gastro side effects, they also work as a blood thinner, so if you get cut or have to have any proceduers, etc. you'll bleed a lot more than usual.

I know, it seems like just another thing to have to keep track of, but unfortunately just because they are OTC doesn't mean they are completely safe.
