Should be fine: You should be fine. 800 mg is the maximum dose to be taken by adults at any given time. That dose can be irritating to the stomach so if it wasn't too long ago eat some food to buffer any possible irritation.

This dose should have offered pain relief, assuming that is why you took it. ...Read more

Be careful: Usually it is the diphenhydramine in the Advil PM that helps sleep. Unless you also have pain that is keeping you up, you don‘t need the ibuprofen/advil part of it. You could develop tolerance where the diphenhydramine can quit working if you take daily. It is also considered a potentially unsafe medication because of your age. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more
