Baby weight is 26 pounds, tylenol (acetaminophen) 80 mg q6h prn ordered. How much tylenol (acetaminophen) should be given in one dose?

Baby weight is 26 pounds, tylenol (acetaminophen) 80 mg q6h prn ordered.  How much tylenol (acetaminophen) should be given in one dose?

That means 80mg/dose: A normal baby can take 6.8 mg of tylenol (acetaminophen) (acetominophen) per pound of body weight, in one dose. That means 6.8 mg x 26 pounds = 176.8 mg (but round down to 160 mg for simplicity). Tylenol (acetaminophen) is typically used for just 1-3 days. The baby's doctor may have recommended a smaller dose for some reason, as he knows the baby's details. ...Read more

Is it OK to take PRAZOSIN HCL 5MG with EFFEXOR (venlafaxine) XR 75MG, PENICILLIN VK 500MG, IBUPROFEN 400MG, HYDROXYZINE PAM 50MG VIT, HYDROCODONE-ACETAMINOPHEN 5?

Is it OK to take PRAZOSIN HCL 5MG with EFFEXOR (venlafaxine) XR 75MG, PENICILLIN VK 500MG, IBUPROFEN 400MG, HYDROXYZINE PAM 50MG VIT, HYDROCODONE-ACETAMINOPHEN 5?

Not OK: Haven't we met before over this question? Why is a 17 y.o. taking ALL that medication? What's going on? I assume the Penicillin's temporary? But HYDROCODONE+ Ibuprofen? What type of pains need all that @ your age? Prazosin for.....nightmares? And hydroxyzine for itching or nausea? Obviously, someone thinks you NEED all this but you asked the question & I'm giving an opinion. NOT OK is what I say. ...Read more

Can you take together 10 mg lexapro (escitalopram) , 25 mg lamotrigine 1200 mg fish oil and 1000 mg acetaminofen ?

Can you take together 10 mg lexapro (escitalopram) , 25 mg lamotrigine 1200 mg fish oil and 1000 mg acetaminofen ?

Yes, but...: Lexapro, (escitalopram) Lamictal, and Fish Oil are often co-prescribed. If fish oil is being used for therapeutic benefit, its good to know the EPA content of the capsules. EPA (not total fish oil weight) needs to be around 1000 to 1500 mg per day to impact mood (FYI). Acetaminophen at 1000 mg - as an occasional dose - is fine to take s the above. Frequent use, though, is to be avoided. ...Read more

Can you take 75 mg diphenhydramine HCl (tylenol (acetaminophen) simply sleep) with .5 mg diazepam (valium)?

Can you take 75 mg diphenhydramine HCl (tylenol (acetaminophen) simply sleep) with .5 mg diazepam (valium)?

Probably: I think you mean 5 mg of diazepam, not .5. 75 mg of diphenydramine is a bit high. Tegether, they synergize for additional sedation. Alone, it is probably not enough to be a problem, but if combined with other sedating agents or alcohol, you would be taking a risk, possibly a serious one. ...Read more

I have taken 5 Tylenol at 500 mg & 4 Advil at 200 mg since 11 am. I am approximately 135 lbs & have eaten with every dosage. Can I take AdvilPM now?

What for?: Why are you taking this many pain pills? If the pills you have taken have not provided relief, taking more will only cause toxicity without providing relief. If you have severe pain, consult your doctor or go to the emergency room of a nearby hospital for an evaluation.
