I would find out why the no on acetaminophen. Was it prescribed in addition to other medication?. I myself am very leery of NSAIDs such as ibuprofen as they have many serious side effects and are considered for short term use only. I do know people with arthritis who do well on low dose opioids and there are several other medications out there which might work for you. If you have not been there, the Arthritis Foundation is a good source of information. http://www.arthritistoday.org/#1. Check our education list on TPC website also. The sciatica may be more responsive to medication more specific for neuropathic pain as well.
