Are non-NSAID pain killing medicines prescribed for patients suffering from ulcer?

My wife had ulcer two year ago which is healed now. She is having mild cold and body pain. She needs a pain killer for body and leg pen. I came to know that If someone have had an ulcer, use of NSAIDs, such as aspirin or ibuprofen could be dangerous and potentially life-threatening. A non-NSAID pain reliever, like acetaminophen, may be a safer choice. Can you please recommend a pain killer and dosage for her? If you want she call .
