Status migrainous: This may be status migranous (if classic migraine features are present) and when it persists and escalates for days, it may require IV treatment in ER or urgent care with more potent medications (ex: Toradol) to get aborted.

Can you take 1 ibuprofen 600mg 4-5 hours after taking 2 extra strength tylenols (acetaminophen) that are not working well?
But don't do this on a regular basis.
Normally, it's recommended that you take 4 tabs of Ibuprofen 600 mg a day and 4-6 tablets of tylenol (acetaminophen) 500 mg a day.
So if you combine both, i'd suggest 2 each of the tylenol (acetaminophen) and Ibuprofen per day on alternating doses.
Don't drink alcohol with it.
Drink lots of liquids.
If you develop stomach upset, nausea, vomiting or fever, go see yourdr

Both work well but you ultimately need to find a dentist ...Read more

Can I give my 5 & 7 yr olds Tylenol or ibuprofen to reduce flu aches/fever if giving them Simulasan cold, mucus & immune relief (homeopathic)? Thank y
Maybe ok: Truly homeopathic "medications" are made by repeated dilutions, so that the ingredient is not really there anymore (just the "essence" of it remains). That means there is no active ingredient left to cause any benefit. However, that also implies that the homeopathic "medicine" should be pretty harmless, unless some other non-homeopathic ingredient (such as some decongestant chemical) was added. ...Read more
