If I took 800 mg of Advil (ibuprofen) pm one time then will it be okay? Will anything happen to me?

Should be fine: You should be fine. 800 mg is the maximum dose to be taken by adults at any given time. That dose can be irritating to the stomach so if it wasn't too long ago eat some food to buffer any possible irritation. This high of a dose shouldn't be taken on a regular basis over a long period of time as it can harm the kidneys. This dose should have offered pain relief, assuming that is why you took it. ...Read more

How long do two advils (ibuprofen) stay in your system. If I took two advils (ibuprofen) at 5 am are they still in my system at 5 pm?

Insignificant amount: Advil (ibuprofen) has about 85% absorption and has half-life about 2-4 hours. So, assume it is 4 hours half life: 85% of 400mg (two advils) =340mg absorbed. In 4 hours, you have 170mg left, in 8 hours there is 85mg, and at 12 hours only 42.5mg left. 42.5mg total in an adult is not adequate to do much at all. Having fun learning. Knowledge is power! Good luck. ...Read more

Is ibuprofen pm addictive?

Is ibuprofen pm addictive?

Sleep Aids: Most "pm" otc meds (tylenol (acetaminophen), advil, etc) contain Diphenhydramine (benadryl, an antihistamine), which is what makes you drowsy. It isn't addictive but can be overused in an abusive pattern. The biggest concern is that the tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen is very hard on the liver. Some people use just the antihistamine to help sleep.See http://www. Stanford. Edu/~dement/howto. Html for non-medication sleep tips. ...Read more
