Advil (ibuprofen): Yes there are no significant interactions.Get a more detailed answer ›
No: It isn't harmful to take them together. It is NOT the case that they'll interact badly and cause side effects. But the Mylanta could interfere with the absorption of the Advil. For you pharmacists in the crowd, the Mylanta may significantly change the area under the plasma concentration-time curve for the ibuprofen. It is best to take your other meds at least a half hour before any antacid. ...Read more
You can, but don't: If you are on prednisone, you shouldn't need the advil (ibuprofen). The anti-inflammatory effects of the predisone are far more powerful than advil (ibuprofen).

GooNightSweetPrince: It's been 23 hours. Still on-line? Time to get some sleep! It would be helpful to know just why you're taking the morphine.In general it's not a good idea to combine medications that have sedative side effects. Advil-PM has small amounts of diphenhydramine (Benadryl)in it so it shouldn't be a problem, depending on how much morphine you take-but-since both are sedating & pain medications, why you asking? ...Read more

Tegretol and Advil (ibuprofen): Yes - there is a minor interaction between Tegretol (carbamazepine) and ibuprofen in the sense that the metabolism of Ibuprofen will be increased so the levels in your system will be lower - meaning you may need to take more Advil. BUT my recommendation - start taking both medications and see if you notice anything. If not - do NOT increase the dose of Ibuprofen (Advil) ...Read more
Simplify regimen: Ideally you should take only one analgesic at a time. Percocet is a combination of oxycodone and tylenol (acetaminophen). Advil is ibuprofen, a different medication. Try to use as little Percocet as possible and only if you really need it for severe pain to avoid dependence and tolerance. If the pain is milder and you do not suffer from ulcers, kidney disease or are in anticoagulants, it is ok to use advil instead. ...Read more
Sudafed and Advil (ibuprofen): Plain Advil and Sudafed can be taken together as long as you do not have any history of serious side effects to either agent. Take for a short period of time, 7-10 days. Advil also has a preparation for congestion. Advil Congestion contains Ibuprofen and Phenylephrine. Phenylephrine is not to be take with Sudafed. Make sure it is regular Advil (Ibuprofen). ...Read more

Advil is ibuprofen: Prescription strength ibuprofen is 800mg. Without knowing the reason for the pain, I think you should stick with the prescribed amount, and not add any additional medications. If the dosage does not seem to be helping, you should contact the doctor that prescribed the medication to further discuss the problem and alternative medications. It is never a good idea to mix pain medications. ...Read more

Tonsil pain: It depends on what you are taking for the period pills. If they are a no steroidal antiinflammatory pill like naprosyn (naproxen) them know.
