Thanks! The results from my throat culture won't be in until tomorrow (), and they didn't do the quick test thing there, so I don't know if I have strep or not. I hate taking the antibiotics when I don't know for sure, but I'm doing it anyway. I'm allergic to Tylenol, so I've been taking tons of ibuprofen. My stomach is now, though.

If you can eat yogurt with the advil....it will not make your stomach feel so yucky.

I had to take 800 mg of advil once and I thought my stomach was just going to corrode away...then the doc said yogurt, or even milk would make me feel better

Ibuprofen is the next best thing But, just know that taking ibuprofen with food(yogurt) or milk may keep your stomach from getting too upset but if you use it for too long it can lead to ulcer formation, taken with food or not. Just be carefull

Thanks for that information. I guess I should lay off the ibuprofen for a while since I've been eating it like candy recently.

Yeah you should.. I dont know exactly what caused it but remember my brother had two ulcers while he was at stanford and started throwing up blood. He needed an emergency operation. I know he was on tons of medication though.

Pharmacy question for ya: are there any OTC cox-2 inhibitors available for humans? We've got a few veterinary ones that we use, and I wonder if people take them too, maybe under a different trade name?

Sorry to bore the rest of you

No, there are no OTC COX-2 inhibitors. You need a prescription for them. The most prescribed ones are Celebrex, Vioxx. There are a few new ones like Bextra but they don't get prescribed often. Plus they are all too new to be OTC for a while.

Oh yeah,

Meegannie its ok to use them for a bit but you should quit for a few weeks then go back to them. The mucosal linning of the stomach needs to re-build.

Hey! If you guys have any questions at all let me know. I love doing this Especialy if its to help fellow U2 fans.

Stay healthy guys.

Thanks for the info - and I'm realizing I may have inferred that those veterinary drugs are OTC - but I know they aren't.
