What if you cannot take NSAIDS for pleurisy. Was diagnosed with it last Sat. at local ER. Dr. gave me pain Medstar with ibuprofen and narcotics and IV Rocefin but made me have cramps and diarrhea for 3 days. Ended up having to do a stool culture it got so bad. Still have oral antibiotics but afraid to take them (Augumenton) because diarrhea might start again but hurting.
