Thanks. But I will continue to take it whenever and how many I want.
Tell your docter you want to stop that if your are on it as an anti-inflammatory.
Voltaren is the most powerful anti-inflammatory pill you can get (sodium diclofenac). It works for me with only 2 each 75mg pills for a day. Neck, back, leg pains go away with only one pill.
Tramadol is Ultracet for pain at 375 mg each. It is more effective for pain than Darvocet or Vicodin. Non-opiate and non-addictive.
I used opiates for a longer time than I should because of injuries and discovered these two are all I need before I realized I needed them no more. Try them. Tell your doctor to order these chemicals for you. I have bad disks. You can't take aspirin or ibuprofin with these.
Not trolling your thread, but I'm so sick of this endless litany of 'medical Studies'. I hear about them daily, sometimes multiple times, and they begin contradicting each other eventually. It's all white noise to me.
Just take this for aches and pains instead. It's probably not as bad for you as allot of the other junk that's out there lol.
Okay, define "high doses".
Ibuprofen may prevent Alzheimer's. And generally, anti-inflammatories should have health benefits. High doses of aspirin (too high to be tolerable), would probably cure type 2 diabetes.
Stole my line!
A year ago I was taking 6-8 325mg aspirin per day.....today I'm taking NONE....or one a week.....some people could benefit from FISH OIL.....it's an anti-inflammatory. But, you have to take substantial amounts daily.....course, the bio-identical hormones have helped a lot too, I think....and maybe the thyroid med...which I'm weaning off of....there are OTHER ways to deal with pain that is not caused by a specific incident injury.
You can still buy absinthe around Pamplona and points north over the Pyrinees into France. Don't. A Tech Seargant got busted by a piss test after he tried it out while he was up there for a little vacation with his 3 kids and his wife. His career ended because of that. Just walk away.
Whooops! My drug of choice for arthritis, degenerative disc pain and the daily hangover. Whats a guy to do?
Aspirin is an NSAID class medication.
I am counting the seconds until the next Law Office of James Sokolove commercial...Have you taken ibuprofen? Do you want 2/3 (or less) of a lot of money?
The dosage warning is for over-the-counter ibuprofen.
800mg of Advil ping, FYI.
The only exception is acetaminophen; it's usually classed in the discussion of pain relievers but is in a class by itself.
I took NSAIDS for thirty years on physician recommendation and nobody ever discussed acetaminophen as an effective pain reliever. Finally I had a bleeding ulcer from an allergic reaction to penicillin and so took a chance that acetaminophen could actually do something. My blood pressure readings dropped 20 points on both systolic and diastolic -- and no longer have chronic gastric distress.
A lot of people than suspected are probably allergic to NSAIDS in the same way I was with all these indeterminate afflictions that can't be explained. Acetaminophen is worth a try -- even if your doctor has been brainwashed into thinking it isn't as effective a pain reliever. Studies haven't indicated that; its weakness is that it doesn't possess as effective anti-inflammatory properties.
You are supposed to stop taking either aspirin or ibubrofin with sodium diclofenac. It is a big blood thinner along with being an anti-inflammatory. You are responsible for your own stroke.
