Usually there is 200 - 400 mg in a pill of Advil . maximum dose of Advil is 800 mg every 8 h ( 3 x 24 hours) . Always take with food . Some decongescent can upset sleep and offsetting with Advil PM not greatest idea but ok short time. Drink plenty of fluids, steam inhalation, nasal saline rinse to help conges ...Read more

Decongestant: I don't know what are in Advil cold but suspect that it contains a decongestant such as pseudoephedrine. If you take this along with Claritin (loratadine) D, you may get OD from the decongestant part leading to insomnia, rise in pulse or BP, anxiety etc. Otherwise no problem. ...Read more

Talk w/ Dr/druggist: The Advil IS ibuprofen. It's rare, but it can lead to bleeding w/ lexapro (escitalopram) in some folk. Watch for signs and call Dr immediately. It can also cause dizziness and fainting, so be careful and try to have someone near.The 1st two can also do that but if you've been ok so far - that's a good sign - just be careful.

Can I take Advil cold and sinus (night) and Nasonex (mometasone) for a cold and sinus pains while taking azythromycin for a sinus infection?

Can I take Advil cold and sinus (night) and Nasonex (mometasone) for a cold and sinus pains while taking azythromycin for a sinus infection?

They do interact: very slightly. since azithromycin when being eliminated by the liver does prevent these other drugs from being removed as fast. BUT, the small effect on the drug metabolism isn't going to be noticeable let alone being in any way dangerous/risky. Nasonex (mometasone) especially once it gets out of the nose is so low an amount in the body, that it can't ... well.... do anything outside of the nose/throat. ...Read more

I am nursing a one month old.can I take Advil cold and Sinus for a cold? If so, can I take it with Tylenol 3? I take one for back pain until I do xray

Advil Cold and Sinus: Advil Cold and Sinus contains pseudoephedrine which decreases breast milk supply. Avoid Advil Cold and Sinus while breastfeeding. Also avoid Tylenol #3 as it contains codeine which passes into breast milk. Okay to take plain tylenol or advil for pain. More about cold and allergy remedies while breastfeeding:

I took alka seltzer plus at 9:15 pm not fully reading it.  I have mostly nasal congestion. When can I take either DayQuil or Advil cold and sinus?

Vapor inhalation: Rather than taking either of these medications, you may help your congestion better by taking steam or water vapor inhalation.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

I'm on the tail end of a sinus infection....not taking meds other than advil and checked my BP and it was 180/100.

Advil side effects: Advil like any other NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammation drugs) produces water retention which can be significant. In hypertensive patients can be dangerous because the more water in blood means more blood volume which increases the blood pressure. If to this is added an elevated consume of sodium (salt) this can represent an aggravation factor which could inflict stoke or heart attack. ...Read more
