    Well, I am in the process of being diagnosed for a stomach ulcer

    IN the meantime, I am not supposed to be taking OTC pain meds, except Tylenol (which of course does nothing for me)

    I need to talk to my doc about what meds I can take for pain

    I am EXTREMELY sensitive to meds so I need something mild

    Any suggestions?

    I take a lot of pain meds but I am not sure what you can take if you have a stomach ulcer. Vicodin is a narcotic that is mixed with tylenol as a pain med and I use this one but I am not sure if the hydrocodone part would affect the ulcer or not, you could ask. I don't know that I would consider Vicodin "mild" but it is not the strongest. Something like Darvocet would be milder. You can take low doses of both if you need to though.

    Your doctor would have the best knowledge as to what you can take with an ulcer and unfortunately the answer might be nothing except tylenol.
