> Hi Scott:
> I live on gulps of NSAID's...Ibuprofen..Naproxen..etc. It's very unhealthy, as it greatly increases risk of stroke, heart attack...etc. Plus, it damages kidneys, and mine are starting to show it. I need LARGE doses of NSAID's too...ugh. But, I seem to get tension headaches...and often just general headaches. At 13 years of age, I gulped back bottles of aspirin (Anacin). My pain has been daily for most of my life. Tylenol does VERY little for me. Surprisingly, ALL antibiotics seem to bring me relief. (My microbiome is odd..

> I NEED antibiotics to poop. Probiotics constipate me.) BTW, ALL antibiotics are anti-inflammatory.

Crap. <grin> Really. I never heard of that. NSAIDs + acetaminophen is a great combination. It's been used in Europe for years. Now, there is a combination preparation available in the U.S. I don't like combination preparations if your needs don't match exactly the ratio that serves you best. Example, Symbyax - a combination of fluoxetine + olanzapine. Dumb. I don't think it ever became popular.

Excedrin = aspirin + acetaminophen + caffeine

add an NSAID to that? I don't know. The antibiotic thing is a revelation to me. I see more and more written about the microbiome, but I am woefully behind the times. Now, they talk about proteomes and one other thing that I forget. Epigenetics is an interesting field of study that can affect gene expression. I think it depends on how the strands of DNA are folded by histones - often in response to the environment.

Check out meloxicam (Mobic). It's an NSAID that I found effective for treating an excruciating episode of spinal stenosis. Prednisolone didn't do a darn thing. From what I was told, one cannot say that one is stronger than another. As with antidepresssants, one NSAID will help while others won't based on one's idiosyncratic biology.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
