Rec.: see an orofacial pain or headache specialist for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Start drinking water: If you are taking 6 OTC Aleve then that's 1340 mg of naproxen taken that can cause gastritis, or inflammation of your stomach's lining. Normal dose is 440-660 (1 tab every 8-12 hours). If you haven't already started drinking more water (several glasses to reduce the irritation), you may need to go to the ER to have your stomach pumped to remove it, so you don't end up w/ an ulcer, or small bleed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What pain killer gets rid of severe headaches tied to menstruation, PMS? Nothing works. Tried Ibuprofen, Tylenol, (acetaminophen) aspirin, naproxen atdiff. times Ideas?
Addition of caffeine: For these types of headaches, without getting into prescription medication, and anti-inflammatory such as Ibuprofen, combined with caffeine(i.e. coffee or Mountain Dew) often helps. An ice pack 15 to 20 minutes at a time is also helpful as is stretching affected neck, etc. muscles. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Liver failure: Tylenol (acetaminophen) overdose can kill. An overdose of Acetaminophen can cause acute liver failure, which is a highly unpleasant event to go through.

Tylenol within labeled limits is safe for most people. Taking more can kill. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but: The rule of thumb is always caution with combining sedating meds. Combining medications, any medications, presents problems with drug-drug interactions. Sedating medications such as t#3 with nortriptyline will be greater than the sum of the parts. I see you also take methacarbamol, which is sedating as well. Caution is advised. Also look at the amount of Acetaminophen in your excedrin. Caution. ...Read more

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Allergic to morphine, vicodin, codeine, nsaids. Chronically ill, looking for pain relief. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is useless. Tramadol ok? Other suggestions?
Painful situation: You have a difficult problem which is not uncommon. You need a concerned physician to review the reactions and what alternatives are available for treatment. Ideally you could see an allergist and a pain specialist to resolve this issue. Also i would be looking into alternative methods of controlling pain such as stress reduction meditation and even possibly acupuncture. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is tylenol (acetaminophen) weight dependant like ibuprofen? I'm 350 lbs. Ibuprofen was prescibed 6-800 mg/4-6 hours. Do i need to adjust my tylenol (acetaminophen) dosage as well?
WHOA! : Neither is weight-dependent for full-sized adults (...Or bigger). Ibuprofen's safe maximum daily dose is 2400mg total. Acetaminophen's safe maximum daily dose is 3000mg total. The one does not impact the other. Problem is that you could be 8'6" and 350#, but your liver and kidneys are about the same size as a 4'6" 100# adult. Use caution! ...Read more

Im creating a PSA for school on suicide., and im wondering how long it would take if someone overdosed on ADVIL (ibuprofen)?
Best approach?: Most ibuprofen overdoses won't kill. Please tell them that 99% of would-be youngster suicides are VERY happy, one year later, that they failed. 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

Not worried : That dose is okay to take daily under a doctor's care but exceeds the daily over-the-counter dose. However, what is not known is how long the 1800 mg daily dose can be taken safely without causing hypertension, stomach ulcers and other problems. ...Read more

Probably Not a Prob: If you mean Tussionex, which is Hydrocodone and Chlorpheniramine, there shouldn't be a problem. Tussionex is a combination opiate and antihistamine and ibuprofen is a pain killer/anti-inflammatory related to aspirin; neither should do any damage to the other or to you if you use them as directed.Tussionex will probably make you drowsy and ibuprofen could upset your stomach, but nothing too serious ...Read more
Yes: Theraflu contains Acetaminophen (tylenol (acetaminophen)) as its pain reliever. Taking Ibuprofen with it would be safe. When taking theraflu, it is very important to not take take additional tylenol (acetaminophen), (acetaminophen) since tylenol (acetaminophen) overdosing is rather easy to do and can damage your liver. ...Read more
