Thanks for the advice...I do appreciate it!

I'll look for the Percogesic and give it a try.

Does anyone remember Orudis? It was a prescription med that became OTC and now is prescription again. Its name is ketoprofen....Does anyone know why it went back to being a prescription med? I really liked it.


PS Cmpgirl, I have had some nausea with the Daypro but if I eat something it's not as bad. I think it's starting to improve as I get used to it.
Orudis was found to have one of the worst gastric ulceration rates of all the antiinflamatory drugs - about 15 times that of Ibuprofen I think.

if cou cant find extra strength percogesic in the grocery store, try a pharmacy. It is also readily avaliable from online retailers.
