Can I Take 4 Advil
Depends.: If the advil (ibuprofen) are 200 mg Ibuprofen and you are an otherwise healthy person with no contraindications. No pregnancy, no GI bleeding, no renal insufficiency. That is a prescription dose and we only recommend high doses like that with professional counsel. It's better to stick with the dose on the bottle unless your personal physician has instructed you otherwise. High dose nsaids have risk. ...Read more

I have a groin muscle strain. I weigh 210 lbs. Can i take 4 Advil (ibuprofen) tablets, how may time per day, and for how long?
Probably: Avoid Ibuprofen if you have high blood pressure, kidney problems, ulcers, or on blood thinners (check package insert for other precautions). Use the least effective amount (like 3 tabs). Four (4x200=800 mg) is the most you should take at one time, and for a short period of time you could do that four times a day. If you have other medical problems, talk to your primary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

First : First of all vodka and advil (ibuprofen) is a dangerous combination.This could adversely affect your liver and could cause liver damage and possibly failure which could be lethal. The maximum amount of advil (ibuprofen) is 3200mg/day and no more than 800mg every 6 hours. An over the counter advil (ibuprofen) tab is 200mg. As far as your headache goes, if it has been present for 7 days then this definitely warrants a medical evaluation. It sounds like a cluster headache. Your doctor will be able to tell you what their diagnosis is after a complete evaluation and give you appropriate treatment. Best of luck. ...Read more

Drug interactions: I found on drug-drug interactions btwn Advil (brand of ibuprofen, an anti-inflammatory pain medication) and Cefpodoxime (a cephalosporin-class antibiotic) at https://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=552-0,1310-782.

Any : Any time you have a question about your child getting too much medicine, it's always best to call poison control - they can provide immediate information about the medicine. The number (nationwide) is 1-800-222-1222. Generally we dose medicines for children by their weight - so if your child is about 20 lbs, 1 tsp is a good dose. Likely, your child will be okay, but i still would recommend that you follow the 6 - 8 hour dosing schedule for the future! a lot of doctors recommend alternating Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen - I am not a fan of this. As a mother, when my children are sick with a fever, i can never remember at 3 am what i gave last! i tend to stick with one (ibuprofen) and only use the other (acetaminophen) if my child is having fevers before it's time for the next dose. I hope this helps! good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
