I've just taken 9 200mg ibuprofen within the space of 2 minutes, I am 16 years old and weigh 7 and a half stone... Do you know what's likely to happen?

I've just taken 9 200mg ibuprofen within the space of 2 minutes, I am 16 years old and weigh 7 and a half stone... Do you know what's likely to happen?

Ibuprofen toxicity?: You say you invested 1800 mg of Ibuprofen about 3 hours ago and you weigh about 48 kilograms so you took about 36 mg per kg at once. You'll probably just suffer from a stomach ache but it would be best if you shuffled off to the local casualty department and they might draw a blood level of ibuprofen and go from there. Your other important issue to address is why you did this? See a shrink pronto! ...Read more

My 4 yr old child has been having a very high fever. I would like to alternate acetaminophen and ibuprofen. How far apart should they be taken?

Busy work: When a kids fever is not responding to either Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen separately it is unlikely to do so if you alternate them. It does give you something to do, but I don't advise the pattern & I never wake a kid for either med. Concentrate of fluid needs & make the dpc aware of the illness. More kids are hospitalized for dehydration than fever. ...Read more

Can I take ibuprofen, colchicine, miralax (polyethylene glycol) and prilosec together. If not how long do I separate?

Prilosec should: Always be taken first in the day, 30 minutes before the first meal and preferably by itself. You may take the Miralax (polyethylene glycol) anytime, but Ibuprofen and colchicine are hard on the stomach (read: makes heartburn worse) and should be taken after meals. I would say 30 minutes after a meal. Hope this helps. ...Read more
