Will I cause kidney damage if I take six Advil liquid gels and six ibuprofen tablets all at once?

Will I cause kidney damage if I take six Advil liquid gels and six ibuprofen tablets all at once?

Not good: Over time, yes. The question is why would you take that amount? Above 800 mg further increases in Ibuprofen doses are useless. Talk to your doctor about a different pain rx if you have that much pain.

Have not read label: I think the best policy is 2 stay away from ibp 4 ur entire pregnancy, and most drugs do the most harm in the 1st trimester ; 2nd. The safest time would b the 3rd trimester, though I would not recommend taking ibp any time during pregnancy.

I just took 20 gel Advil (ibuprofen) about 5 minutes ago. Am I going to die?

Of course; we all do: The question is when! You should go to the ER now and they will pump your stomach to reduce the amount that you can absorb into your blood stream. Then you will be seen by a psychiatrist to discuss with you why you want to end your life at this time. I hope all turns out well for you and those who do love you for I am sure there are those who do.

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.

Advil (ibuprofen): Advil (ibuprofen) is dosed according to weight and it is the Ibuprofen component that we are concerned about. A child can take up to 10 mg per kg in single dose.

Can I use voltarol and ibuprofen gel on my neck at the same time?

Can I use voltarol and ibuprofen gel on my neck at the same time?

Probably will not he: These two gels are very similar. While it is not recommended to use both it will probably not hurt you. It will probably not help either. I would recommend choosing one, and using acetaminophen orally if you are not doing so. I hope you feel better!

Is it okay to take gel nyquil capsules and children's liquid Advil (ibuprofen) together?

Is it okay to take gel nyquil capsules and children's liquid Advil (ibuprofen) together?

Try to space them: Out 4-6 hours apart. Nyquil has tylenol (acetaminophen) which is a pain killer and combining with advil would be a double whammy. If u already took both at the same time, it won't harm u. Take care!

Since they are prescription meds best to follow doctors prescribing as they know alot more about you and your condition.

Is it safe to take 2 5mg hydrocodones with an Advil (ibuprofen) liquid gel together?

Likely: Was hydrocodone prescribed to you? Were you told you could take 2 at a time by the doctor that prescribed them to you? If yes to both, then taking with advil (ibuprofen) is fine.

Period cramps are very bad &I take 600 mg of gel Advil (ibuprofen) to stop pain for a while and then another 600mg bc it is so unbearable such heavy pain. Normal?

Can be helped: Yes period cramps can be debilitating for some women, however, it is not necessary to consider these as normal. Contact your GYN for a work up and discuss treatment options.

Can I use naproxen and ibuprofen gel at the same time?

Naproxen & ibuprofen: No. Please do not use together as they are the same class of drug so you will be getting a double dose and will potentiate the side effects which includes gastritis, possible GI bleed and kidney dysfunction.
