Not unusual: Not unusual when being treated outpatient for diverticulitis to run a low grade fever for up to 48 hours after antibiotics started. If pain and fever persist beyond 72 hours, need re-evaluation. Ibuprofen with norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is OK if still hurting. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

Ciprofloxacin and Advil (ibuprofen) pm can both be taken at the same time?

Ciprofloxacin and Advil (ibuprofen) pm can both be taken at the same time?

Not really: As long as your kidney are ok, you can take advil (ibuprofen). My issue is the 'pm' is diphenhydramine. There is no reason for you to take it unless you are having an allergic reaction. Diphenhydramine can cause tardive dyskinesia, which doesn't have treatment. So you can take it, but i don't think you should. Straight advil (ibuprofen) is fine. ...Read more

Can i take Advil (ibuprofen) with lithium?

Can i take Advil (ibuprofen) with lithium?

Carefully: Advil (ibuprofen) may increase lithium blood levels by reducing the excretion of lithium by the kidneys. This could lead to lithium toxicity. One study that tested high-dose (1800 mg/day) Ibuprofen said "lithium dosage may need to be reduced in some patients following initiation of Ibuprofen therapy." the effect may be less at low doses or if advil is used rarely. Consult with your prescriber. ...Read more
