  • which antibiotic did they order for you? if your kidneys are good, ibuprofen....but stick with ibup' or tylenol and don't switch from one to the other in the same day....the by product of ibup' and the by product of the tylenol both in your system at the day time are Extra taxing to the liver. better to let one clear out and start the next day with the other (so I was told via nepho md).

  • I have been using both Tylenol and ibuprofen and neither are touching it.  I was wondering about compresses hot or cold and maybe some alternative medicine because the OTC pain relievers are not helpful.
