pain medicine

Recommended Posts

I have 2 bad hips (not from PD all my siblings have the same issue) and since I like to sleep on my side i have been taking either 1 325 tylenol or 1 motrin.

Is one pin reliever better than another?  Would either the tylenol or the motrin interefere with the absorption of the trazadone  I take @ bed?

I prefer and recommend Ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) over Acetaminophen (Tylenol) when it comes to pain and/inflammation relief. First, because it is more effective. Two, because Acetaminophen is metabolised by the liver which can cause a hindrance or delay in metabolism of other medications, like Trazadone. 

More than 60%of the prescription medications available are metabolised in the liver, so taking a medication that is not primarily metabolised in the liver can lessen the amount of drug-drug interactions.

One note of caution, Ibuprofen can be hard on the stomach so it advised to be taken with food.

I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
