Welcome ot the forum Melissa!! Glad you posted.
I'm like you . . . the regular use of plaq (600 mg/day) and ibuprofen (1800-2400 mg/day - I know its a lot) does a fairly good job of keep things under control IF I am religious about
taking it. I don't dare cut back because I am feeling better.
I have to say that I worry about
all that ibuprofen for so many years . . . but my best anti-inflam was vioxx *sigh* . . . that one tiny pill a day was magic. I haven't had the same results from a couple other one-a-days that I tried. I'm allergic to naproxen and tylenol doesn't help . . . so-o-o-o I'm very interested in the responses you will get to your question.
I'm sorry you are having trouble . . . redundant questions but . . . are you taking your meds WITH food? I know we get busy and forget, but that is really important. Don't take them with citrus (fast release and more acid).
Looking forward to the responses in this topic!!
