I'm having a very bad toothache I took two extra strength excedrin around 30 minutes ago can I take 800 milligrams of ibuprofen?

I'm having a very bad toothache I took two extra strength excedrin around 30 minutes ago can I take 800 milligrams of ibuprofen?

Pain caused by infected tooth (abscess). Pain killer will not cure infection. Antibiotics will only control, not cure, infection. See Dentist ASAP for appropriate Rx. That's the only way to fix your problem. ...Read more

I took 2 excedrin 5 hours ago. Is it safe to take 600mg of ibuprofen now for my migraine?

Should be fine as: Excedrin only contains acetaminophen as the pain reliever along with aspirin, not ibuprofen. Though taking too many medications will make some things worse. Be careful and wait for the medications to take effect rather than reaching for more pills. And get some sleep if you can, which helps migraines a lot (personal experience :) ) ...Read more

I get bad nosebleeds, often lasting 45 min. if I take ibuprofen. I'll be blowing bloody mucus the rest of the day. Is Excedrin safe?

I get bad nosebleeds, often lasting 45 min. if I take ibuprofen. I'll be blowing bloody mucus the rest of the day. Is Excedrin safe?

Avoid excedrin: There may be several formulations of Excedrin, but most of them contain aspirin -- which is even worse for bleeding than ibuprofen or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Use only acetaminophen (Tylenol and many drugstore brands) for pain relief. Discuss with your doctor -- maybe referral to ENT? Or test for blood clotting disorder? ...Read more
