  • What to take for headache

    Am doing well due to ic diet. I have a new eyeglass presc. and have a headache. What can I take that won't aggravate my bladder? Didn't know if aspirin is bad or if another type of pain killer is better than another. Thanks!! Leslie Dayton, Ohio

    Tylenol is usually the best for us IC'ers. Sorry you've got a headache!

    04/17/09 Crohn's disease almost killed me with a combo of extreme constipation from pain medications. My bowel ruptured, I almost died from peritonitis and spent several days in the ICU then more in a private room on the floor. If you have any questions about severe constipation from pain meds please don't hesitate to send me a message.

      Yep, Tylenol is safe for the majority of us.

      Just want to say to the boards from another Daytonian! There are several of us on here from the Dayton area. We're hoping those in this area can all get together for a brunch sometime this spring. We'd love for you to join us, so watch for an announcement on the Central States Board.

      Never go to a doctor whose office plants are dead.

        I can't take Tylenol for other reasons. I take one buffered aspirin for headaches without any problems.

        Shopping??? Did someone mention shopping? I'll get my hat... ;-)

        Where I can be found most days.
