Discussions that mention ibuprofen

Back Problems board

It is an anti-inflammatory, which is why I believe they suggested that I take it after going off the narcotic stuff. Any kind of ibuprofen will help keep the swelling down and help calm any irritation. Tylenol won't do that unfortunately (acetometophen as opposted to an NSAID). Goes to show again that it seems every doctor's advice is slightly different, so it's good to see all these responses!
