Hello, thanks for using HCM.
Its very comforting to know you had no fractures. Management of pain is based on the intensity of the pain and from the medications prescribed by your doctor, it is obvious you had a moderate to severe pain
. Percocet is a combination of acetaminophen
) and oxycodone and it is used in the treatment of moderate to severe pains. it's a bit shocking that it doesn't help you; well may be the dosage you are taking is rather small as it exist in different forms such as oxycodone 2.5mg + paracet 325, oxy 5 + paracet 325, oxy 2.5 + paracet 325 etc. Ibuprofen is an anti inflamatory drug with potent analgesic
properties. However, ibuprofen causes gastric ulcers
and is usually not given to patients with history of ulcers. Patients without ulcers can take up to 2400mg of ibuprofen a day in severe affections but then at such high dose, there is a high risk of ulcers. Taking another tablet of ibuprofen if you are ulcer free could be permitted if needed.
