Almost all pain medications are fine. The only otc pain med that is not safe is aspirin.

Well...still haven't heard from you, so I'll just say most everything is fine, just NO aspirin. You can look up meds on LactMed, or if you let me know what you're thinking of I'll lol it up for you.

What happened? Poor girl. If it involves swelling I would take ibuprofen, heck I would just take ibuprofen anyway lol. I use it for everything pain related.

Me too. I add Excedrin tension (without aspirin) when I have a migraine.

I stepped on the spiked part of a old gardening hoe/rake it punctured my foot pretty deep in two places and broke the bone in my foot that leads to my little toe.

Oooh girl. Get a prescription for that! Definitely ibuprofen to keep swelling down, but vicodin is safe too.
