Can I take 3 Advil (ibuprofen) cold and sinuses?

No: Always follow the directions on the packaging. Many of these products contain antihistamines that can cause dry mouth and dizziness. Excessive amounts of advil can also cause stomach acid upset. If you are having trouble with congestion - snort some nasal saline and hack out the buggers. Consider adding a nasal steroid spray once a day - Nasocort OTC. Cool mist humidifier at night.

Can I take 3 advil (ibuprofen) liquid gel nighttime?

Can I take 3 advil (ibuprofen) liquid gel nighttime?

Yes: One Advil (ibuprofen) liquid gel is 200 mg and you can take up to 800 mg per dose of Ibuprofen which is Advil (ibuprofen). Make sure you take it with some food in your stomach as it can make your stomach hurt. It is better to get Motrin which is 400 mg or Ibuprofen 800 or 600 mg tabs if you need a higher dose than Advil (ibuprofen) so you are not taking too many tabs at a time.

I had 2 cocktails and a little beer starting at 5 ending at 8 it's 3:17 am right now can I take 3 Advil (ibuprofen) and be ok?

Wouldn't suggest it: Ibuprofen has a lot of potential side effects, but chief among them is stomach irritation, which can lead to actual hemorrhage in the stomach and duodenum. Alcohol increases the chance of this happening. The non-prescription strength is 200 mg, and 3 of them would be 600 mg, a prescription strength. This should not be done without discussion with a physician who knows your full medical history etc

Can I overdose if I take 5 acetaminophen (500)mg and 5 advil) 200)mg three times a day for a week?

Can I overdose if I take 5 acetaminophen (500)mg and 5 advil) 200)mg three times a day for a week?

Overdose: Actually 5-500 mg tablets of acetaminophen 3 times a day is 7500 mg total per day and 5-200 mg advil tablets three times a day are 3000 mg of ibuprofen per day. The maximum safe dose per day of acetaminophen is 3000 mg per day. And advil is 1200 to 1800 per day. Some doctors will give lower doses of acetaminophen with ibuprofen but this is much too much and serious side effects can occur.

I took three Advil, (ibuprofen) is it okay if I take DayQuil?

Dayquil plus Advil (ibuprofen): Yes, you can. Although not ideal, you can take DayQuil after taking Advil since it does not contain any similar non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen. It does contain acetomenophen which is the same product in Tylenol (acetaminophen).

The: The GI (gastrointestinal) symptoms you described may be related to an infectious process. However, it is more likely that you are dealing with a viral gastroenteritis as opposed to an intestinal infection. The symptoms usually resolve in about a week or so. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids. If you are not better yet and/or have fever, blood or mucous in your stool, seek medical care right away. Take care.

Com/interactions-check. Php? Drug_list=552-0, 1310-782. But be sure to read about potential side effects of each, especially gastritis from former, and vaginal yeast infection & diarrhea from latter.
