  • Tylenol is basically the only painkiller you can take. Don't take ibuprofen. I do hope it helps you, it didn't do anything for me. :(

  • It probably is, but to be absolutely certain that there's not some reason why maybe you shouldn't take it, I would call the dr.'s office and ask the nurse. Some people may have certain conditions where it would not be advisable even though it would be safe for the majority. Better to be safe than sorry.
