Can I take ibuprofen with fexofenadine 180mg famotidine 40mg and ketorolac 10 mg in the same day?

Multiple medications: Hold ketorolac or ibuprofen, both are NSAIDs, stick to one only, with ketorolac use the lowest effective dose, better not to exceed prescribed dose and duration, the rest are fine to take at the same time, good that you asked, always exercise caution with multiple medications, ...Read more

Both: Depending on the mg dose they both may be effective! Take it with food, both can cause bleeding from your stomach! We all respond sometimes differently to these drugs! If you have no other medical problems the try the max dose of one and if not effective try the other! If pain continues despite medication then you should have a thorough medical evaluation of your pain! ...Read more

How long should I wait before I take Toradol when I have been taking Ibuprofen?

How long should I wait before I take Toradol when I have been taking Ibuprofen?

Half a day: These are medications of the same class., the Ibup. Normally last several hours and the levels significantly reduced in about 10 hours. I would say unless the pain is very bad start the toradol 8-10 hours after your last dose and no more motrin after taking the todadol ...Read more

I was given a toradol shot yesterday how long do I have to wait until I can take ibuprofen?

I was given a toradol shot yesterday how long do I have to wait until I can take ibuprofen?

If no kidney/liver: Problems, can generally take an analgesic like ibuprofen within 4-6 hours after Toradol injection. In your case, with a history of gastritis and high blood pressure, I'd be extremely careful about use of any NSAIDS because they can cause/exacerbate gastritis & raise blood pressure by effects on/damage to kidneys. See dr. For other pain relief options. ...Read more

NSAIDS: These are nsaids, non steroidal antinflammatory reactions and can cross react, you need to wear a medicalert bracelet saying you are allergic to them, you may be allergic to Aspirin also, avoid all of them. ...Read more

I took 800 mg ibuprofen 3.5 hours after a 60 mg Toradol shot. Did I cause any damage? Do I need to do anything, i.e. more water to flush kidneys?

I took 800 mg ibuprofen 3.5 hours after a 60 mg Toradol shot. Did I cause any damage? Do I need to do anything, i.e. more water to flush kidneys?

Here are some...: One-time drug adverse effects onto kidneys could not be undone few hours after their use. In realistic sense, just wait and see without repeating kidney-offending events. For your future care, it would be beneficial to view articles listed in Life reality on http://formefirst. Com/onLifeBasics. Html. As to general idea on water drinking, go to http://formefirst.

Can I take toradol and vicodin together? I have horrible back pain and ibuprofen isn't helping any

Can I take toradol and vicodin together? I have horrible back pain and ibuprofen isn't helping any

Work w/ doctor: The combo is not risky for interaction but you need to seek non-dependency forming solutions if possible. Try to find PT exercise, massage, support, meditation, etc to build a life style that will last for years. It's worth the effort - really. Best! ...Read more

How long after taking Toradol and contrast dye in the ER is it safe to take ibuprofen and not hurt the kidneys?

How long after taking Toradol and contrast dye in the ER is it safe to take ibuprofen and not hurt the kidneys?

Here are some...: Ask your doctor for almost instant realistic answer since they know more about your conditions in kidneys, liver, etc. And your personal concerns than anyone online. Generally, you may use ibuprofen almost any time as long as within its recommended dose and having no prior serious unwanted side effects and allergy. Besides, in reality, it is unlikely to have specific study being done to address.. ...Read more

I had a one time toradol IM shot today for rib pain. How long does this last? Any side effects I should watch for? When can I start taking Aleve/Advil

A few hours: Toradol can relieve pain for several hours (>6-8 hours on an average). You can either start taking alternate pain medicine if they have been effective in relieving your pain before or wait until you have return of your pain that needs relief and then start taking your pain pills as per your doctor's advice. ...Read more

Headache several days in row I've taken Tylenol n ibuprofen nun seems to help?

Headache several days in row I've taken Tylenol n ibuprofen nun seems to help?

Status migrainous: This may be status migranous (if classic migraine features are present) and when it persists and escalates for days, it may require IV treatment in ER or urgent care with more potent medications (ex: Toradol) to get aborted. By now its unlikely triptan class abortive (ex:imitrex, zomig) would work. In the interim try naproxen as it is longer acting. ...Read more

Can I take vicodin 5/500 n ibuprofen 800 together?

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

Daily hypoglycemic attacks?!?! I eat once a day -an overdo ativan n Advil (ibuprofen) pm. And my CNS overworked

Daily hypoglycemic attacks?!?! I eat once a day -an overdo ativan n Advil (ibuprofen) pm. And my CNS overworked

Be Kind To Yourself: Blood glucose levels are influenced by when and what we eat. Eating once a day is unhealthy and can lead to problems with one's blood glucose level. Symptoms of "hypoglycemic attacks" may include anxiety, shakiness, and confusion. I assume Ativan and advil (ibuprofen) pm are being used to treat these symptoms. Eat healthy meals at appropriate times and these symptoms may disappear. Be kind to yourself. ...Read more
