Yes: Nsaids (ibuprofen , advil etc) are felt to be more effective since they inhibit the production of the chemical that makes the uterus cramp. If you have pain that is not controlled by an NSAID at the recommended dose you can use tylenol (acetaminophen) also (at recommended dose). If your pain is not controlled with this, you need to see your doctor. ...Read more

Not likely: Not the best choice-they are quite similar: that'd be like taking advil + Aleve together. If you need that much pain relief (and you have no reason not to take tylenol (acetaminophen)), i'd use tylenol (acetaminophen) with 1 or the other for pain relief. Sounds to me like you might need some physical therapy, acupuncture: look up msm, digestive enzymes, & krill oil as anti inflammatories. Hrs, md. www.thepmc.or. ...Read more

Is it ok to take both mefenamic acid and ibuprofen at the same time for toothache? I took mefenamic 30 minutes ago but the pain is still here.
NSAIDs: Both meds are NSAIDs, and taking both may potentiate each other. Be careful not to exceed maximum dosages on package labels. Toothache usually signifies infection, and pain killers will not cure infected teeth. Neither will antibiotics that will control spread of infection, but not cure. Important that you see your Dentist for immediate treatment. ...Read more
Can i take acetaminophen and ibuprofen at the same time after running a marathon to combat pains? And how much of each is safe to take at the same tim
Dentist told me to take 2 Advil & 2 reg strength Tylenol at same time 3 times every 4 hour after a root canal, seems like a lot of meds,is this safe?
Sounds like a lot: Two regular strength Advil and two regular strength Tylenol, 3 times, would equal 6 Advil and 6 Tylenol. That would mean 12 pills every 4 hours, or 72 pills every day. Maybe the dentist's instructions are confusing the patient. Best for the patient to call the dentist and verify how to take the pain-relief medication. ...Read more
Is it safe to take Advil (ibuprofen) multiple times a day if I was prescribed 500 mgs of naproxen every 6 hours? I am worried because the bottle of Advil (ibuprofen) says no
Advil (ibuprofen) + Naproxen: Both of these meds are considered NSAIDS which are notorious for causing GI problems (stomach bleeding), The maximum dose of Ibuprofen is 3.2 g, and Naproxen 1.5g daily. Do the math. There are other better ways of managing pain than taking same meds-NSAIDs.

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. ...Read more
