If you recently had a procedure that has left you with some discomfort, Dr. Bilski is here to share some tips on how to manage that pain with over-the-counter ibuprofen and acetaminophen.
Over the last few years, health care professionals have been fighting an epidemic of opioid addiction and abuse. As a result, many doctors are reluctant to prescribe any opioid post-treatment to try and keep their patients safe.
After years of study and research, many health care providers, Dr. Bilski included, have discovered that a simple regimen of ibuprofen and acetaminophen can have the same pain relief as Percocet or Vicodin without the risk of abuse or addiction.
Typically, Advil works for about 8 hours, and Tylenol works for about 4 hours. Check with your doctor before using ibuprofen and acetaminophen.
