I have overdosed on aspirin and acetaminophen. I have thrown up a lot. It's been about 23 hours since I took it. Will I be fine?

Go to the ER.: It may well be that you have cleared the medications from your system, but Acetaminophen can cause severe problems - even liver failure! go to the emergency room. They will take blood tests, do an exam, and have a supportive social worker discuss this event with you. Clearly, you must be hurting in some way to have taken such a dangerous overdose.

What is the difference between aspirin, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and ibuprofen?

What is the difference between aspirin, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and ibuprofen?

Effect on baby: Aspirin and Ibuprofen are related anti-inflammatory pain medicines. They should be avoided in pregnancy, especially in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters because they can close an important valve in the baby's heart. This valve normally closes at the time of birth which is why they can be taken post-partum. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a pain reliever that does not have this effect on the baby and is safe in pregnancy. ...Read more

How long does aspirin and tylenol (acetaminophen) stay in ur system? For example usually it says take every 6 hours so does that mean after that it's gone within?

Depends on dose: A one-time dose is normally gone within that time frame. However, regular use of medications create a "steady state" baseline which takes longer to be metabolized. How long depends on your metabolism. For example, kidney or liver disease cause drugs to not be cleared as effectively, and the medication can build up in your system. Also, effects of Aspirin on platelets can last up to a week. ...Read more

Is it safe to use ibuprofen (advil), aspirin (bayer), and acetaminophen (tylenol) at the same time?

Hard to say: You neither explain the reason for such use or the age of the patient. It is seldom a good idea to pile on OTC pain or anti-fever meds just because 1 isn't working.
