Is it safe to take indomethacin, tylenol (acetaminophen) and allopurinol at the same time?

Is it safe to take indomethacin, tylenol (acetaminophen) and allopurinol at the same time?

Yes: Be careful though because Indomethacin and alopurinol are both processed by the kidney so combining them can cause kidney damage, albeit likely temporary. Check with your doctor about whether combining them is the best regimen for you and what your maximum daily dosages should be based on your other medical conditions and your baseline kidney function. ...Read more

Allopurinol is for an overproducer of Uris acid, perhaps you are an underexcretor of Uris acid. This can be found out from a 24 hour urine test. ...Read more

Can you take hydroco-tylenol and indomethacin at the same time?

Can you take hydroco-tylenol and indomethacin at the same time?

Yes: No problems doing so.

The question to ask is whether it's all for the same cause of pain - if it is, then what doctors sometimes do is stay with one drug and increase its dose rather than adding another.

However, if they're for two separate causes of pain - like the indomethacin is for gout inflammation and hydrocodone/Tylenol for something else - then having both sounds especially reasonable. ...Read more

While on lexapro can I take tylenol (acetaminophen)? Why isn't aleve safe?

While on lexapro can I take tylenol (acetaminophen)? Why isn't aleve safe?

Tylenol (acetaminophen) is ok: Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (such as lexapro) may enhance the antiplatelet effect of NSAID (such as Aleve/Advil). 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

Is it safe to take tylenol (acetaminophen) while pregnant? I have white oblong pills that say l484 if it's okay to take how many can I take?

Tylenol (acetaminophen) is safe: Tylenol (acetaminophen) is safe to take during pregnancy. I'm not sure what the the pills are that you are describing. Generally tylenol (acetaminophen) can be in two forms of 325 mg or 500 mg per tablet. You can take one to two of those tablets every 4-6 hours as needed. You should not take over 4, 000 mg in a day. ...Read more

Both: Acetominophen (tylenol) intake should be limited to less than 4 grams daily. In excess, liver damage may occur. Aspirin can trigger asthma attacks, GI bleeding, allergic reactions, and intake should be limited to less that 3 grams daily. Occasional use and alternating them may be best. ...Read more

I took 2 tylenol (acetaminophen) pm 18 hours ago. The box says not to take meds containing diphenhydramine for 24 hours. Is it safe to take clearquil before 24 hrs?

Diphenhydramine: Which qlearquil formulation do you want to use? At any rate, read the labels carefully as you did with tylenol (acetaminophen) pm, the idea is not to exceed a total dose of diphenhydramine of 300 mg/24 hours, so if you took 2 tylenol (acetaminophen) pm18 hrs ago, that has 50 mg of diphenhydramine, you should be fine, the label on the tylenol (acetaminophen) was meant to protect you from overdosing if you took full dose of it besides other meds ...Read more
