I'm taking 100mg of benzonatate 3x's day /4, days now have had cough for 10days. Can I take a double does for bed so I can sleep. I am waken from cough?
Ask prescribing doc: Please check with your physician to confirm this is acceptable to him or her--without knowing if you have other health conditions or what exactly you are dealing with now, it would not be wise to tell you to take anything other than the prescribed dose. I will say that the maximum daily dose of Benzonatate is 600mg, and it is often prescribed in the 100mg or 200mg capsules. ...Read more

If I were looking for additional pain relief, I'd probably reach for additional aspirin before taking anything with more acetaminophen, as this ingredient of excedrin can cause serious liver damage in higher doses. ...Read more

Is it ok to take 1 tablet of Excedrin migraine every day? Usually wake up in the middle of the night with a headache and take one Excedrin migraine (I have had migraine since I was 22 now 57 but not as bad any more)
No: Migraines can occur during sleep. There is a higher incidence during later stages of sleep. It is important to talk to a neurologist regarding your symptoms to decide if these are truly migrainous and yoy may need an MRI to rule out other causes. Regular consumption of Excedrin (or most OTC meds) can lead to overuse analgesia headache which may be what you are experiencing now. ...Read more

Avoid excedrin: There may be several formulations of Excedrin, but most of them contain aspirin -- which is even worse for bleeding than ibuprofen or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Use only acetaminophen (Tylenol and many drugstore brands) for pain relief. Discuss with your doctor -- maybe referral to ENT? Or test for blood clotting disorder? ...Read more
I take Excedrin for my headaches everyday.6 a day for awhile now. I'm worried my liver could be swollen. I have upset stomach right shoulder pain alittl?
Let's See?: Always read the label and know what hand how much you are taking. Acetaminophen/tylenol in adults is up to 2 grams a day (2, 000 milligrams). Less to none if there is liver disease or other problems and elderly. Less to none if significant alcohol intake or ingestion of other liver toxic meds/drugs. You should discuss with your pcp/gi doctor. Excedrin has Aspirin too? Stop and check! ...Read more

Not really: I would not take Excedrin and Aleve (naproxen) at the same time. I would take these two neds a few hours apart. The rest are ok to take together unless you have an allergy to these meds or some other medical condition such as diabetes or hypertension that could be affected by these drugs. Always be careful with taking too many meds. ...Read more
Yes: Generally yes. However, benzonatate can cause drowsiness. The first generation antihistamines (such as benadryl, (diphenhydramine) doxepin, chlorpheniramine, and hydroxyzine), can also cause drowsiness. Hence, the affect could be additive. With that in mind, you might want to consider taking a second generation antihistamine such as cetirizine, xyzal, fexofenadine, etc. ...Read more
Yes: There should be no interactions as long as you follow the directions. ...Read more
How Much Excedrin?: A more important issue is how ofter you take the excedrin. You may be causing rebound headaches which in many ways are more difficult to treat than migraine. Feverfew is a popular herb that seems to prevent migraine. I am not aware of any major interactions as does st. John's wort, for example. It is probably more important to limit your Excedrin than worry about the feverfew interactions. ...Read more
