I'm finding myself at the age that I'm starting to experience them but still concerned whats safe for potential long term usage to curtail them. I know ibuprofen helps but should I live another ten or more years is it's effects going to do me under...


Thoughts, or what do you find useful?

I shy away from ibuprofen due to potential liver damage. Acetominifen (sp) for me and in limited quantity. Most of my aches and pains I've learned to live with. Some think the golden years should be absolutely pain free. In my case it's all a result of working hard, not smart, in my working years.

Aleve and good old aspirin works for me.

Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen are not meant to be part of a pain relieving regimen.

There are a lot of natural means available that do work.

I like the natural route if it proves out. These shoulders are ever going to be right but I'd like them as livable as possible. I looked briefly at Gleens suggestion at least price wise its doable.

There is a teensy little jar of wonder called Tiger Balm.
It's topical and works amazing.

Aleve in the morning and night for me. Along with a 5 mg dose of thc based sativa in pill form in the morning and a dose of dry leaf indica higher in thc around 10pm to sleep through the night pain free. The daytime stuff doesn't affect cognitive function at all and has way less side effects as other prescribed medications I've been on.

And just an fyi, I was the biggest opponent against the stuff all my life.

I try not to take anything due to some of the meds I’m on . BUT ... if I know I’m going to do something that is going to hurt later , I take some tylenol extra strength to ward off most of the pain . Used to take Aleve ,but it is taboo with the other meds .

I figured aleve has to be better than taking 4 or 5 oxycontin every day for pain and being buzzed up all the time. Or lyrica that did nothing but cause me to gain 40pounds.

Aleve seriously screwed with my eyesight, took six months and three pair of glasses to determine the cause.

Wayne, were you taking Warfarin or something similar along with it?
on the topic of warfarin.

I hated the stuff. Didn't work for me. I kept having to adjust my dose and go down to the clinic twice a week for them to adjust my dose and take blood. It also caused my hair to be falling out in clumps in the shower. I was switched to xarelto. While it's not a perfect drug by any means, it worked to control my blood count numbers. And no more weekly testing. But I was cautioned that if I cut myself they couldn't stop the bleeding while on that. Warfarin at least allows for the chance to administer another medication that reverses the blood thinning properties of the medication.

I'm a following and reading the suggestions... I know I can't use the marijuana derivative products. WV doesn't approve of them and is frantically tying to drive up the numbers of pharmaceutical addicts and pharmaceutical stocks. Per capita we're no1 in the nation but they believe there is still room for growth.

Add me to those who go with Aleve (Naproxin). I have prescription strength but it does me well.
Kidney stones are the only thing that has me go for something stronger.

Probably your only safe option right now Jim.
It wouldn't be safe for you to take aspirin or ibuprofen either.
I'm not a doctor, but I've known more than most of them when it comes to these things.
We both practice what we know from books , education and experience.
My experience has been that I often know more than them.
