I don't think there is anything wrong with your Physician.  He may just have thought the hydrocodone was causing you stomach issues.... or he may have thought you needed a stronger opiate.

I am not sure what you mean when you added,"ibeprophen."  I assume you mean Ibuprofenen. I am sure you know that can your Gastrointestional Tract.  

I never take a new med  without discussing it thoroughly with my Physician, no matter what the circumstances. So if he wants to change a med or increase, decrease or whatever I am not left guessing what his thoughts may have been. I want to know my his rationale. I can than agree, disagree or ask more questions. I encourage you... and everyone to do the same.

My Medical Providers have always been fine with my questions. I make it clear from the get go that I respect their position and want them to direct my care.... however I expect to be a partner in that care and to be part of the decision process. It is our bodies, our pain, our lives and at the very least we deserve to be a partner in our care.

I'll get off soap box now! :o)

If your doctor is concerned about ibuprofen or tylenol aggravating your ulcer, why not suggest just pure oxycodone with NOTHING added?  That way, you can add or not add tylenol as you need it instead of having to take it with every dose because it's built right into the pill?  If you take the pure oxycodone, then you can limit your tylenol dose to even once or twice a day if you choose to.  The pure form of oxycodone comes in 5, 15, and 30mg sizes.

Good thought Ghilly. Oxycodone is available by this name in IR Tabs, found in 5mg, 10mg, 15mg, and 30mg Tabs.

It's not clear to me why so many Physicians do not order this more often.  They usually prescribe Percocet or Percodan.  It may have to do with the Manufacturing Reps that push the brand names.... and of course the Pharmacy will usually supplement with Generics anyway.  

It's another good suggeston JT.... and as always talk to your Physician.
