Is Naproxen The Same As Tylenol
If I take 2600 mg of Tylenol/day and still in pain at bedtime, how often can I take Naproxen at bedtime before it is too often?
Do not drink alcohol when you take Tylenol. Do not take more than 4 gm in one day.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Depends on patient: Mobic (meloxicam) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (nsiad). Aleve (naproxen) is also an nsaid. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is not an anti-inflammatory medicine. Mobic lasts longer and in most cases needs to be taken once daily. Patients react differently to nsaids. So the efficacy frequently is patient dependent. ...Read more
Most likely: Naprosyn (naproxen) is not directly related to Acetaminophen so it would be unlikely that you would have a sensitivity to acetaminophen. If you've never taken Acetaminophen before i'd suggest taking a small dose to confirm it is in fact safe. If symptoms of an allergic reaction do occur seek medical attention quickly. ...Read more

Can I combine Aleve and tylenol (acetaminophen) to help relieve my toothache? If not, which OTC pain killer is best for my toothache?
Yes: Yes, in fact those two in combination work quite well. When the pain progresses, often times no pain medications will "make a dent" in it. You should interpret your pain as a warning sign and be evaluated before it progresses to a dental emergency. An alternative to aleve (naproxen) is ibuprofen. Either of these are probably your best otc options. ...Read more

NSAID may diminish the therapeutic effect of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. That being said, many of my patients take both with no problems. ...Read more

CIDP management: In my review, I did not find fever as a manifestation of cidp. However, cidp is an immunological disorder that makes you more susceptible to infections. You need to see the physician who is treating your cidp for an evaluation. If he (she) has no new suggestions, ask for a referral to an infectious disease specialist. ...Read more
