Is There Anything Available Stronger Than Tylenol Or Advil For That Could Be Used On A PRN Basis?

Is There Anything Available Stronger Than Tylenol Or Advil For That Could Be Used On A PRN Basis?

My husband is experiencing more pain all over. Has been reluctant to use any kind of pain medicine. Only takes Tylenol or Advil ir Aleve. Has achy legs and feet, rib pain and back pain.

Most of us are also. I take Valium and med marijuana for sleep. No problems.

My doctor prefers acetomenophen drugs like Tylenol Extra Strength, but certainly not every day. And only once per day. Because kidney and liver side effects are a problem with both ibuprofen and Tylenol drugs, it should depend on how well your tests show your kidney and liver functions are. Again, talk to your doctor!

I use Percoset every now and then and it works good for me. If you have continual pain I would see a real pain specialist ... at MDAnderson they have a pain clinic specifically for their cancer patients. Hope this helps ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™

As my husbands pain increased he had to take stronger pain medications. Your husband needs to tell his Oncologist about his pain so he can decide what he needs to take. This is not a headache that you take Tylenol for this is cancer pain. Ouch!

I occasionally take a low dose Percoset and it does the job for me. :)
