Good evening, thanks for your question.

The Loxicom you have available is an NSAID and will not greatly help with discomfort associated with the intestinal lymphoma. The Temgesic is more ideal for treating pain of that variety. The temgesic, do you have the sublingual tablets available--is that what they sent you home with?
