Can taking 4 Excedrin every morning hurt me?

Can taking 4 Excedrin every morning hurt me?

Excedrin has ASA: Excedrin has aspirin. This can cause large and 'silent' ulcers. The Aspirin both causes the ulcer and masks the symptoms - i.e. They are painless until they bleed.

If I take 10 sleeping pills every 4 hrs each and everyday what will possiblely happen?

Medicine overdose: This regimen sounds dangerous. 10 pills of any kind every four hours is an excessive amount. Medicines such as tylenol (acetaminophen) PM or benadryl may be toxic in these amounts and cause damage to your liver. If you feel it is necessary to use 60 pills daily to help you sleep please cut back on your medicines and see a sleep specialist. ...Read more

Headache: Be careful to not exceed 4, 000 mg of Acetaminophen per day. An intractable headache usually indicates that further diagnostic studies be undertaken. Analgesics merely treat symptoms, not the cause of headaches. I would recommend that you see your doctor. ...Read more

If i take revotril tablets0.5mg sleeping pills 5 to 4 time evryday will  i die gradually after some times plz tell me?

Seek help...: Rivotril is a medication that should be taken under the close guidance of a physician and as they prescribe it. This medication can be addictive and if you have been taking it for sometime you may have withdrawal symptoms when you stop. The big issue to address here is why are you taking it so often? - I strongly suggest talk with your doctor about stress, anxiety, depression, drug use now. ...Read more

I take fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) 4 pills daily . What  and how long will i take for me to become addicted . I had 4 headaches a week . Now none ?

Difficult to say.: You will become tolerant (takes more to achieve same effect) and physically addicted (you will feel poorly when u stop taking) fairly quickly at those doses - 1w-6w? I certainly suggest you see a headache specialist (neurologist, pain doc) - there are better medications for long-term use. Hope this helps. ...Read more
