I wake from knee and ankle pain after about 1/2 hour of sleep. What maybe causing or what to do to prevent it. I take ibuprofen 400mg its some relief?

Varies: There are a number of potential causes. If it is causing you enough trouble, i would encourage you to be seen. One common cause is a "sciatica" which is an irritation of the nerves in the back that can cause pain that runs from the knee to the ankle, but there are many other causes as well. Many of which have a pretty simple cure. ...Read more

I have strep throat and am on penicillin. I'm taking Advil (ibuprofen) 400mg for pain and inflammation but am still in a lot of pain. What more can I do?

I have strep throat and am on penicillin. I'm taking Advil (ibuprofen) 400mg for pain and inflammation but am still in a lot of pain. What more can I do?

Gargle: Warm salt water gargle really help w/ the pain. The saltiness matches the natural body fluid condition and is really soothing. Alternatively, some find that organic apple cider vinegar w/ or w/out a pinch to baking soda (fizzy) helps. Try either or both. The cider mix is okay to swallow - not the salt water. Tea w/ lemon juice and honey (I won't tell if you add a dash of rum) is good to drink. ...Read more

11d post vasectomy. Alternating percocet, Advil (ibuprofen) 400mg, & taking herbal baths (uva ursi, marigold, witch hazel). Is pain/swelling normal for this long?

11d post vasectomy. Alternating percocet, Advil (ibuprofen) 400mg, & taking herbal baths (uva ursi, marigold, witch hazel). Is pain/swelling normal for this long?

Highly variable...: Post-vasectomy pain/swelling varies greatly from virtually painless with no swelling to severely painful with a huge swelling; the degree and frequency of such wide variation seems reflecting surgeons' skill. . Nonetheless, such situation is acceptable as long as improving surely ; slowly day by day. How long does it take to resolve? Occasionally, maybe up to 2-4 weeks. So, wait and see, ; ... ...Read more

Is it safe to take robaxin (methocarbamol) 500mg with ibuprofen 400mg to 800mg or with naproxen 500mg? For muscle pain and muscle spasms?

Is it ok yo take fiorinal with codeine after taking Advil (ibuprofen) migraine 400mg? I have a severe migraine. ..Its been 2 1/2 hrs

Not the best : Your current treatment program is not the most effective way of handling migraine headaches, and accelerating use of analgesics is often followed by the pattern of chronic daily headaches. If you wish to prevent headaches and control when they do occur, see a neurologist, as the best abortive is a triptan, and there are many preventative meds. ...Read more

There are some risks of internal bleeding w/ the combo pills. Find other choices - discuss w/ Dr and/or druggist honestly and intelligently. ...Read more

400mg ibuprofen @ 1230am. Then again, 400mg ibuprofen @ 1130am. 900pm now, safe to drink a few 6% beers, maximum of 6?

400mg ibuprofen @ 1230am. Then again, 400mg ibuprofen @ 1130am. 900pm now, safe to drink a few 6% beers, maximum of 6?

Way too much.: 6 beers is way too much for health. The standard low risk drinking level is 14 a week for men (not all at once, 4 at most a day). Some think that is too much for good health Have 1-4, and don't drive for at least an hour/beer afterwards.
