What pain medications do not contain acetaminophen? Does anyone know?
There are many medications to treat pain that don't contain acetaminophen. Many of the opioid (narcotics) don't, and then there is the class of pain meds known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that include such medications as ibuprofen.
Obviously, all of these medications have different uses, and your doctor will be able to help you determine which one is best for you. If you're dealing with pain and can't see a doctor right away, a pharmacist at your local drugstore will probably be happy to help you determine which OTC medication may suit you best.

What You Didn’t Know About Pain Meds
There are lots of medications without acetaminophen. A few of them are oxycodone, morphine, and methadone. I see you are on vicodin. That is hydrocodone and that does not come without acetaminophen. Good luck
Vicoprophen is hydrocodone and ibuprophen. So it IS possible to get the pain relief without risking your liver.
vicoprophen is the one you want if you want vicodin without acetaminophen
If you can get relief from vicodin, just switch to vicoprofin....no acetaminophen, it is ibuprofen instead. No reason to "up" your narcotic factor to a drug that is stronger and more addictive like morhpine or methadone, those drugs are crazy strong and highly addictive, don't even go there unless you are hospitalized...oxycodone not as harsh, just a step up from vic, but PS that has acetaminophen...hence the "codone". Anyway just don't want you to add more problems if you can get relief with your vic...just switch over to vicoprofen and see how it goes.
Yes, but the Ibuprofen will affect your kidneys so you are basically in a catch 22. One affects one organ and the other affects a different one. Just get meds without either. Yes, that extra pain reliever does help but if you are that concerned about toxicity, then there are meds you can take that have neither.
I am 56 years old. I have been on Hydrocodone for about ten years. I am now on the 10/500.Recently my trig. have gone up and the doc. took me off trycor and zocor imediatley. I have a fatty liver and my enzyemes are high. I have lots of medical problems that nothing can be done for other than pain management. I can't take antiinflamtory drugs because i had kidney failure, but they went back to normal...it is getting serious now and i have to fing something i can take with no tynelol or antiflamatory. I don.t want to need a liver either..just scared and trying to do some research on my own. I don't want to go to morphine of anything like that. HELP
thanks im switching for health reasons to everone take care of your body only got one pain sucks but there are worse things Take care crazy peeps
Ibuprofen is just as bad. If you have liver disease you need to limit your intake of tylenol, aspirin, and ibuprofen. Most meds (around 90%) are metabolized through the liver. I would ask your doctor to explain this and offer a narcotic (pain reliever) that doesn't contain any additional tylenol, etc.
Not if it is hydrocodone. I see a pain management doctor for back problems (bulging disc) and he gives me injections in my back every 3 months, and also prescribes lortab for the daily pain. It really sucks that the pharmaceutical companies put acetaminophen in these because of the effects it has on your liver and kidneys. I think they think it is a way to keep people who haven't got a prescription fom abusing hydrocodone which in my opinion is just a total disregard for the health of patients it is legally prescribed to. They probably also look at it from the perspective of, well if they get other ailments from taking the hydrocodone then we will make more money off of them in the future with other drugs.
The lortabs do help with the pain, but I still have a lot of pain. I was fortunate enough to have a job for about 6 years that did not drug test, so I decided to try marijuana. The marijuana worked well for the type of pain I have and, even though I only used it at night, it greatly reduced the number of lortabs I needed to get through the day. Unfortunately with my current job I cannot use marijuana for the pain. Shame on Big Pharma for putting poison in the pain medicine and shame on the federal government for ignoring the science and not rescheduling marijuana for medical use!!!
well thats my question cant take high doses of Aceaminophen..........eeee only thind i found if Oxycodone not Oxycottin
I don't know of any that have none but Norco has less and still has the same hydrocodone as vicodin, lortab and the others.
