So I have a disorder that causes a lot of pain. The Doc prescribed a pain reliever (amitriptyline), and said to take an over the counter pain med if it gets to be too much.
For me, it's almost every day it's too much, so much so I can't move my shoulders or sleep. I've been taking Advil 2-3 times a day, 4-600 mg at a time. But that can harm you over the long term.
I'm not going to be able to see a dr for about a month, so I'm here to ask those who have knowledge in this area.
Does anyone know of pain meds that hurt you LESS over the long-term than ibprophen? Like is Acetominophen less harmful? Should I alternate between advil and tylenol?
