switching to ibuprofin

I'm easing off the pain killers and leaning on ibuprofin. How many and how often have you girls been taking ibupfofin?

I've been taking 1 ibuprofen + 1 vicodan since I was released from the hospital, and it was working really well for me until my minor setback.

I've been taking four every four hours. It's a lot, but that's what it takes.

Re: switching to ibuprofin

that's what doctor's office said for me to do and it seemed like a lot. But it's got to be better than taking constipating pain killers. Did you stop taking stool softeners once you made switch?

Another Woman, sorry about your setback. Did you push yourself too much over the holiday?

switching to ibuprofin

i stayed on pain killers for as short of a time as possible (4 days after surgery), they made me constipated, i then took ibuprofen 600mg every 6 hrs. for awhile & alternated with 2 xtra strength tylenol (took that 3 hrs. after i took the advil and alternated it every 6 hrs. also). Currently i take 2 reg. advil when im hurting
