    I think it was you mikie who posted that you only take Advil gel filled caps. Is that correct? If so, or whoever posted that, my question is why the gel caps and not regular advil/ibuprofen tabs or caps?

    Sorry, it wasn't me. Do a search on gel caps and see if you can find it. Aah, I just did a search on Advil and I think it was Shirl. You just mixed up your moderators :)

    Love, Mikie

    Yes it was me. When the pain gets bad, I take the Advil Gel Capsules. They are less stressful on the stomach (I have IBS), and they really get into the bloodstream quickly, I guess thats because its a liquid.

    I read about them in Devin Starlanyl's book. She also recommended that if you are in severe pain, to take a low dose Xanax, and an Advil gel cap. She said that the Xanax enhances the effects of the Advil.

    I don't do this often, but it does work quickly. Xanax alone will not stop pain.

    HOpe this answered your question.............

    Shalom, Shirl

    Just want to ensure that Ace gets to see this as the board is moving at warp speed these days.
