    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I think asking your doctor and/or pharmacist for options would be your best course of action. I take enteric coated aspirin on a regular basis for pain relief, but I am not sure what you could take. With the liver problems even any products containing acetaminophen would not be good for you.

    I pray you can find options and relief soon.

    My husband had a bad reaction to NSAIDs and cannot take them anymore. His doctor prescribes a generic Endocet for his arthritis pain.

    You can also take Tramadol, it is less strong than Endocet.

    Best of luck to you, Annette
