My trapped gas and altered motility have bring me a spine hernia with tremendous pain.
The GP have prescribe me Vioxx and Activan(?) to cope with ths hell.Apparently,Vioxx is less bad for the G.I. tract than the other anti-inflammatory drug.Any happy users?I think i'm ready for the narcotics but all are scared to prescibe it.

Spasman- I have taken Vioxx in the past for tendonitis (right elbow), however, I only took it for a week...since it irritated my gut terribly...also made me a bit nauseous as well. My doctor then put me on Bextra 10 mg and I had no adverse reactions.As far as your pain, have you consulted a pain specialist? Also, I see in your post where you mention that you are "Predominate C"; narcotics can constipate you. Make sure if you make an appt with a new doc that he knows you are IBS-A, Predominate C.Also, Toratol (Ketorolac) works pretty good for pain. It is a NSAID (Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug). I have taken this when I had a few root canals to when I had my gall-bladder removed. It doesn't make you feel drowsy or "out of it", nor nauseaus. Most pain meds make me feel nauseous or I end getting sick from them. At least the Toratol didn't make me sick. I also was able to go to work & take the Toradol when I needed it, so it did not affect my concentration or alertness. Hope this helps & you find something soon to help ease your pain.Lizzie

I will ask for Nexium,the best drug to cope with nsaids to me.See the article. http://www.optanza.cz/article/11198.aspx We focus on exploring new uses for Nexium and developing new treatments for GERD, H. pylori, peptic ulcer disease, IBD, dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome. New approaches AZD0865 is a compound in a new class, potassium-competitive acid blockers, that has potential to provide faster, more effective and reliable inhibition of gastric acid secretion than PPIs in the treatment of acid-related diseases, such as gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It is now in phase 2. AZD3355 and AZD9343 , which are in pre-clinical development, are reflux inhibitors offering a potential breakthrough in the treatment of GERD through a new, targeted approach (other than inhibition of acid secretion) by inhibition of transient relaxations of the lower oesophageal sphincter (LOS). AZD7371 is being evaluated in clinical studies for the treatment of functional GI disorders in phase 1. Broadening the benefit Regulatory filings for Nexium for the treatment (symptom resolution) of side effects from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and a parenteral formulation were made in 2003. First regulatory approval and launch of parenteral Nexium were achieved in 2003. The parenteral form of Nexium was approved in Europe in late 2003 as a dosage form when oral administration is not applicable for the treatment of GERD and it was confirmed that the side effect NSAID indication is within the existing treatment usage.

spasman I take Vioxx now because I have rheumatoid arthritis. I had surgery in Jan for a complete small bowel obstruction caused from ulcer disease as a result of chronic NSAID use (mainly excedrin). Although there are few drugs if any out there that are safe to use for the GI tract, Vioxx is the least of evils. I can't take Celebrex because it is sulfa based and makes me sick. Vioxx is working very good for me. I take Protonix also for the belly still.Bextra is a fairly new drug and I don't know much about its effects on the GI tract. I would certainly ask your doc about it.Sips of Milk of Magnesia help soothe the burning too.
