This is Dr. Bonilla, experienced in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care.
I understand your concerns. Duexis is a combination of famotidine and ibuprofen. Famotidine is a medication that decreases the amount of acid in the stomach. However ibuprofen causes decreased mucus production in the stomach. You will likely have stomach problems even with this combination pill. For the kind of pain that you have you can use intra-articular steroids or topical NSAIDs. Let me know if you have any other questions.
