Anyone know of a pain med that doesn't upset your stomach?

    I have chronic gastritis, and do not tolerate pain meds (not even l/4 alieve). After a fall last week, I've been doing tylenol suppositories, and I'm sick all night from them.

    I have to find something that doesn't upset stomachs.

    Anyone?

    Thanks & LIGHT************carole

    Dear Carole:

    Perhaps you could take your pain meds with an antacid? My mom takes prevacid whenever she has to take any painkillers including aspirin. It seems to help her.

    Good luck, and perhaps you could ask your doctor for something more long acting?

    I use the Amino Acid DL-Phenylalanine. Available in any health food store for under $10. I take (2) 500 mg capsules sometime in the morning. Cuts my pain about in half.
