Narcotic vs. Non-narcotic Pain Study Protocol

The purposes of this noninferiority randomized clinical trial are to: 1. determine whether the most commonly used commonly used non-narcotic analgesic (ibuprofen 600 mg + acetaminophen 325 mg) provides pain relief that is not unacceptably worse than the most commonly prescribed narcotic containing analgesic (hydrocodone 5 mg. + acetaminophen 325 mg, equivalent to Norco 5/325) in patients undergoing carpal tunnel release. 2. Determine whether the following covariates affect pain level following surgery or medication usage: gender, country (US/Canada), pre-operative CTS symptoms, site, workers compensation status and employment status (employed/self-employed/unemployed-able to work/unemployed-unable to work)
