If a person took 2 mgs lorazapam by mistake vs Advil (ibuprofen) for migraine what can be expected.
Headache: Sedation, drowsiness, possibly dizziness, and all other effects and collateral effects of lorazepam. Try to avoid any future mistakes, only take what is prescribed for you. Migraine would still be there if Ibuprofen was the treatment and nobody took the tablet, unless symptoms spontaneously subsided. Ask your dr. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer

19 weeks pregnant sore throat, swollen glands, killer headache with body ache congested runny nose, sneezing, coughing. Organic marijuana vs Advil (ibuprofen) n such? .
Yes: You can take up to 2400mg of Ibuprofen in a 24 hour period. So 3x2 tablets every 6 hours is safe. Howevee, you want to get to the root of the problem. Why are you having the pain, get that resolved so that you don't have to take that much medicaiton.
Carefully: Advil (ibuprofen) may increase lithium blood levels by reducing the excretion of lithium by the kidneys. This could lead to lithium toxicity. One study that tested high-dose (1800 mg/day) Ibuprofen said "lithium dosage may need to be reduced in some patients following initiation of Ibuprofen therapy." the effect may be less at low doses or if advil is used rarely. Consult with your prescriber.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends.: If the advil (ibuprofen) are 200 mg Ibuprofen and you are an otherwise healthy person with no contraindications. No pregnancy, no GI bleeding, no renal insufficiency. That is a prescription dose and we only recommend high doses like that with professional counsel. It's better to stick with the dose on the bottle unless your personal physician has instructed you otherwise. High dose nsaids have risk.
It depends: This question is not so straightforward because it depends on many things such as why you are taking it, how much you are taking, other medications you are taking and what medical conditions you might have.
1800mg: You probably should not exceed 1800mg a day. This all depends on your age, weight, renal function, and any comorbid medical conditions you might have. There is no one right number.See 2 more doctor answers
