    AcipHex and Ibuprofen

    I've been having pain in my mouth but dentists say it's not a tooth maybe sinuses. So finally today I had my doctor appointment. Only problem is my tooth felt better today and my stomach hurt like hell

    Doctor gave me AcipHex and said the anti-bods i was taking were harsh on the stomach. Tonight my extreme tooth pain came back and I need to relieve it.

    I took the AcipHex pill 5 hours ago, can I go ahead and take Ibuprofen (or Vicodin if needed) for pain?

    No there will be no interactions between the two drugs. Ibuprofen is absorbed in the lower intestine, and aciphex acts directly on the parietal cells of the stomach.
    Taking vicodin instead of ibuprofen will be safe too.

    Thanks so much guys. I know Ibu is bad for the stomach, but the pain in my mouth was so bad I had to try it. Thanks for letting me know about the Vicodin too

    I have the same problem with what to take with my aches and pains that won't mess my stomach up. I have to take ibro a lot for muscle joints but can tell it's not good for my stomach.

    Hi, CharBerry

    Ibuprofen has side effects on the GI. Severe ones include GI erosion and Bleeding -> sounds bad, but i have been using ibuprofen for quite a while now, for my migraines. I used to take panadol, but ever since that have no effect...i switched to ibuprofen. I haven't had any side effects since taking it.

    If you are looking for something to ease moderate pain then paracetamol 1000mg should do.

    Otherwise Panadeine (Paracetamol 500mg + codeine 8mg) is also an alternative.

    Take one or the other, but not NSAID (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) with paracetamol (these two interact).
