May not work: You likely have chronic daily headache patterns, and could well be prompted by your advil (ibuprofen) usage, which is not uncommon, but your Fioricet will make this even worse, and Amitriptyline will be unlikely to break up this headache pattern. In short, see a neurologist who specializes in headaches, and get your med program totally revamped. Might also check in with dentist re teeth and/or jaw issues. ...Read more

How long can a person safely take Advil, a 200 mg dosage daily? Does switching to aspirin make a difference, or do they both harm the body same?

Take this medication daily. If you are in pain all the time, you need to consult a doctor to find out why and address the underlying cause. No medication is entirely safe and taking any medication daily for a long time will have adverse side effects.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

My friend takes 14 Advil (ibuprofen) PM's to sleep. Apparently it takes that many to work. He's 25 around 5'7-5'9 & on the slim side. What effects can this have?
I have had a headach four 7 days on my left side of my head right behind my eye. It starts right when I wack up and it gets hurting more every hour in tell I take 4 Advil and lay down and put ice on it for hours and then that does not work all the time.
First of all vodka and advil (ibuprofen) is a dangerous combination. This could adversely affect your liver and could cause liver damage and possibly failure which could be lethal. The maximum amount of advil (ibuprofen) is 3200mg/day and no more than 800mg every 6 hours. An over the counter advil (ibuprofen) tab is 200mg. As far as your headache goes, if it has been present for 7 days then this definitely warrants a medical evaluation. It sounds like a cluster headache. Your doctor will be able to tell you what their diagnosis is after a complete evaluation and give you appropriate treatment.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Is it ok to take 800 mg of Advil (ibuprofen) (600 plain advil (ibuprofen) and 1 200 advil (ibuprofen) pm) nightly? It's about the only thing works for my insomnia!
Be careful: Usually it is the diphenhydramine in the Advil PM that helps sleep. Unless you also have pain that is keeping you up, you don‘t need the ibuprofen/advil part of it. You could develop tolerance where the diphenhydramine can quit working if you take daily. It is also considered a potentially unsafe medication because of your age. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

I'm creating a PSA for school on suicide., and im wondering how long it would take if someone overdosed on ADVIL (ibuprofen)?

Educating them about the unreliability and the likelihood (depending on method) of major brain damage instead is part of the story; reminding them you can help with horrible life situations is even more helpful. ...Read more
