I'm taking Effexor (venlafaxine) 75mg and just took acetaminophen with caffeine 400mg. Will there be an I interaction? How should it make me feel?

Can I take solodyn, Advil or tylenol, (acetaminophen) and multivitamins together? What are the potential drug interactions? Side effects? Thanks.
Not at same time:
Solodyn (minocycline) has many interactions; taking with calcium (usually found in multivits) can reduce absorption- they should be taken at least 2 hours apart.
Solodyn (minocycline) kills our friendly intestinal flora which can lead to yeast overgrowth ; a wide range of side effects. It's wise to take probiotics ; not use it very long. Topical antibiotics ok. Regular Ibuprofen use can cause ulcers ; GI bleeds. See comment:. ...Read more

Interactions...: Main listed interaction is between Delsym (dextromethorphan, cough suppressant) & Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR (dextroamphetamine/amphetamine); there is a theoretical increase in risk for serotonin syndrome (fever, sweating, fast heart rate, diarrhea, confusion, muscle rigidity) from Delsym taken with Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR. Unless also taking other serotonergic meds (for migraine, mood, pain, other), NOT likely to occur. ...Read more

Took Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain post delivery about 3 hrs ago. Got quezy not breastfeeding, took pepto bismol. Are there any interactions??
I recently switched from norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) to tramadol and a higher mg of doxepin (25mg) is there an interaction between them? I have been having mild chest pain.

Is it safe to take norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and soma? What are the interactions between these two drugs. I got prescription from dentist for norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and use Soma for my back. Safe?

I'm developing a sore throat, can I take keflex for infection and norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain? Are there any interactions? Until I have time to get to the dr on wed
Don't take them!: There's no interaction between cephalexin (Keflex) and hydrocodone with acetaminophen (Norco), but you definitely shouldn't take them. Sore throats are almost always due to viruses, which cephalexin won't help at all; it would just make it harder for your doctor ro diagnose you. And a narcotic is giant overkill for a "developing" sore throat. Plain acetaminophen (e.g. Tylenol etc) is enough. ...Read more

Infant age 1 fever n gave panadol (acetaminophen), fever went off last for 2hr. Fever came back again n gave panadol (acetaminophen) n it also last for another 2 hrs. So now worry.
Expected pattern: A child with a fever producing illness will run that fever in some pattern until the illness is gone. This would seldom be less than a few days. Acetaminophen is expected to suppress the fever by a degree or so while it is in the system, but it does not "fix" the illness. If the kid fails to drink well enough to void every 6 hours, refuses to play, or other bothersome symptoms, have it evaluated. ...Read more
