I've been told I can't use ibuprofen with rivaoxaban, but this morning I leant forward to place my coffee cup on floor beside chair and ping my back went, in the past when it's happened I take 2 paracetamol every 4 hours and 2 ibuprofen every 4 hours in between the paracetamol doses, to keep me moving, so my question will it really hurt to do this for a couple days while pain is unbearable? I need to keep on the move to stop my back completely seizing up 😩
Ibuprofen and anticoagulant : I've been told... - AF Association
I sympathise and it's sooo easy to do. My GP prescribes co-codamol for short term use and advises paracetamol. I use alternate hot/cold packs. Cold is especially good if you can get to it immediately as it controls swelling.
Ibuprofen should come with a severe warning on the packet for anyone of 55 and over as it has been shown to cause AF. I took the stuff for years for back pain.
My sympathies .
Do not take ibuprofen. Apart from anything else it can promote AF.
Can you see your GP for an alternative pain reliever such as codeine?
Thank you all, I've gone with ice tight (this is an horse cold clay for after strenuous exercise) and cocodamol, I can quite easily understand how it's addictive, it knocked me out last night 🙊 So I've stuck with paracetamol today and I'll do the knockout drops at bedtime. Feels ok unless I sit down so the bonus to back pain is a clean house from waist height up 😂
