I have had a total of 1400mg of ibuprofen today. 600 this morning and 800 a little over 7 hrs ago...are coolers okay to drink?
No: This is a problem as you have posed it. The Ibuprofen is a type of drug that may upset the stomach or GI tract. Then adding a second drug to upset the stomach as alcohol will upset the stomach or can add to a gastritis is not wise. Would wait until another time for having your coolers. ...Read more

You should be OK: There is some small risk of stomach irritation (Gastritis) from both of these chemicals. So take an antacid if you have any indigestion or heart burn.

Ibuprofen 800 mg for what source of pain? Different pain medication works differently for different people. Regardless I would not recommend more than 600 mg.
More than that will not likely help. You can add 300 mg extra strength Tylenol for better pain control. However find out what is causing your pain and address the cause. Speak to your own doctor for recommendations. ...Read more

Too much ibuprofen: Generally, yes, but monitor yourself for stomach pain and/or bloody stools as anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen can be harmful to the intestinal tract and cause ulcers and/or bleeding when taken in excess.

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

Yes: I know this online forum is here to answer questions but I think it's also imperative that patients tell their physicians everything they're taking. And buy all their medications from same pharmacy so pharmacist can look for interactions too (doc should do so too). And in this day & age, patients have same access to drug interaction database as physicians. Yes, vicodin & Ibuprofen can be taken tog. ...Read more
