I need some.guidance?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've got an infection in both of my.kidneys, I've been prescribed cocodamol, 500 mg, I take 2 at a time but it only seems to be helping with the pain for like an hour once it kicks in. Would it be safe for me to take some ibuprofen whilst the cocodamol is wearing off? If not, what else can I take or do to help with the excruciating pain?

    Hi Bexstaar.

    Its OK to take ibuprofen with coco. Has this does not have paracetamol in. Ibu or aspirin are fine. Just watch your dosage amount.

    You can take ibuprofen with cocodomol. They recommend it In boots. Plus I was a staff nurse. Hope it helps your pain

     Hey Bex, sorry to hear your in pain, kidney infection is not a trivial matter and self medicating pain relief may not be the best thing to do.and you should be asking a medical professional, did your GP not give you any instructions as to what to do if the pain becomes unbearable? Different pain medication affects internal organs differently, which a professional will know

    cant you ring the NHS helpline, or the local A&E will gladly give you some advice

    No offence to the replies you've had, but you shouldn't be taking advice on what medication is or is not safe to take from total strangers, no one knows your medical history or exact condition, so please consult a professional,

    hope your well soon!

    Ser bronn is right about seeking professional advice on medication.

    Still if someone asks guidance in an open forum your going to get guidance.

    You should check if your medical needs allow your physiology to take these. Has far as cocodomol and ibuprofen being taken together this is acceptable in the general guided use.
