Short duration: if you do not have a cardiovascular or cardiac rhythm issue, a few days of sudafed is likely ok. However there is a higher risk for stroke among people taking sudafed on a regular basis. Topical decongestion nasal spray is far more effective for a cold and nasal steroid spray is far more effective for nasal congestion. Sudafed is my last choice. ...Read more

I have a sinus infection. I took 400mg Advil (ibuprofen) and a sudafed 5.5 hours ago and now want to go to sleep. Can I take NyQuil now?
800mg is a big dose: If a person was taking Tamiflu for the flu, and had no problems with the Tamiflu, and in the past had no problems taking ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) or cold medications like Sudafed PE, then she should be able to take the 3 medications on the same day and still have no medication issues, because the medications should not interact with one another. However, 400mg (or 600mg) ibuprofen may work fine. ...Read more

I'm on penicillin at 600mg 4x daily and only on 600mg Ibuprofen every 6-8hrs for pain. Is vodka okay to help with the pain?
Not OK: Alcohol is a poor pain medication. The amount required to signifcantly reduce severe pain usually is higher than desirable, and repeatedly using alcohol this way markedly raises the risk of alcohol addiction. If you have sufficient pain to ask this question, you need to contact your doctor for professional advice and perhaps another prescription for pain control. Good luck! ...Read more
Had strep since fri, taking penicillin. Sudafed today. Right gland still swollen. Do i return to dr or work? Anything else I should do?
Safe to return: You are more than 24 hours out from starting antibiotics, so you should be safe to return to work. Finish out your course of antibiotics; contrary to popular belief, there is actually little symptomatic improvement from using antibiotics, and duration is shortened only by about 16 hours compared with no antibiotics. Good luck! ...Read more

I've had a cough for over a month and have a swollen but not sore left tonsil. Penicillin and ibuprofen haven't made the swelling go down. What is it?
See ENT doctor: The swollen tonsil and the cough may be independent and unrelated. But at age 22, the cough should have resolved within a month. Are you a smoker? A unilateral (left side only) swelling of a tonsil rarely could be serious. See an ENT doctor for appropriate diagnosis of the tonsil. ...Read more
I have strep throat and am on penicillin. I'm taking Advil (ibuprofen) 400mg for pain and inflammation but am still in a lot of pain. What more can I do?
Gargle: Warm salt water gargle really help w/ the pain. The saltiness matches the natural body fluid condition and is really soothing. Alternatively, some find that organic apple cider vinegar w/ or w/out a pinch to baking soda (fizzy) helps. Try either or both. The cider mix is okay to swallow - not the salt water. Tea w/ lemon juice and honey (I won't tell if you add a dash of rum) is good to drink. ...Read more
