How long does advil pm stay in urine?

How long does advil pm stay in urine?

A mixed bag: Plain Advil would not be an issue at all - but the PM part has benadryl that might cause a false positive in certain tests. Even that should be okay after a full day or two since the last pill (half life short) but bring the bottle w/ you to reflect the cause if there's a problem. They should be familiar w/ this common issue. Try to feel innocent if you really are! Best wishes. ...Read more

If I took 800 mg of Advil (ibuprofen) pm one time then will it be okay? Will anything happen to me?

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 high of a dose shouldn't be taken on a regular basis over a long period of time as it can harm the kidneys. This dose should have offered pain relief, assuming that is why you took it. ...Read more
