Is it safe to take 3 Excedrin tablets in one day?

Is it safe to take 3 Excedrin tablets in one day?

Not recommended: While 3 tablets would probably be unlikely to cause adverse effects in most people, the maximum recommended dose is 2 caps per day.

If I were looking for additional pain relief, I'd probably reach for additional aspirin before taking anything with more acetaminophen, as this ingredient of excedrin can cause serious liver damage in higher doses. ...Read more

How much inositol is safe to take in one day? I have been taking 1 gram per day and it helps my anxiety a little bit. Is this better than medication

How much inositol is safe to take in one day? I have been taking 1 gram per day and it helps my anxiety a little bit. Is this better than medication

18 grams/day or more: Studies have been done using up to 18 grams of Inositol per day and found it safe & well-tolerated with few mild side effects. If it works for you it's better than drugs as it's safer & less habit-forming, but also try exercise, meditation & counseling. Many other supplements may help as well- see http://www. Lef.

Also consider classical homeopathy. ...Read more

??? Indication: It would have helped to know what it was being used for? Was it for a procedure or for surgery? Once a patient is fully ambulatory there would be no indication for lovenox (enoxaparin), (enoxaparin)so to answer your question, it is quite possible to use it for prophylaxis for one day. In high risk patients with limited ambulatory capacity though, evaluation would be needed after the surgery/procedure to discontinue lovenox (enoxaparin) ...Read more

Is it safe to take two hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) pill in one day?

Is it safe to take two hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) pill in one day?

Some use 2x/day: Hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) is a mild diuretic most often used to treat hypertension. It is often used once daily but some use 2 times a day. So, it is ok to use 2x/day, but I would advise that you check with your doc to find out why you would need to use 2x/day, especially being your age at 24? More likely to have side effects from 2 vs 1 pill per day. So, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

How much OTC antacid is safe to take in one day? The bottles all say no more than 2 pills but each dose is different. How much is really too much?

OTC vs. RX: So it varies. The rx dose of even an otc medication is different than what is recommended on the back. If you are going to exceed the dose recommended on the bottle, make sure it is done under direction of a physician. Different doses exist for each of them but generally there is margin of safety if higher dose is taken but that may not be the case for some of them. Follow directions on bottle. ...Read more

Is it safe to take plan b twice in one week after 72 hours? I missed my pills last Friday and start again to catch up by taking 2 pills a day on Weds

Yes, but...: It is safe, but not ideal. And you will need to use backup protection until you get a period and are totally back on track on your pills. I would recommend pregnancy before starting next pack. And it sounds like maybe pills aren't the best option for you - talk to, your doctor about different birth control options that you won't forget to take! ...Read more

Is it safe to take two zyrtec (cetirizine) a day, one in the morning and one at night?

Is it safe to take two zyrtec (cetirizine) a day, one in the morning and one at night?

Sedation: That dose of zyrtec is going to be very sedating. This defeats the purpose of taking zyrtec instead of benadryl (diphenhydramine). That level of sedation will make you a drowsy --> dangerous driver. Have you tried Loratadine or allegra? Do you use Flonase or something like it? Do you regularly flush your nose with a saline/ baking soda solution? ...Read more

Is it safe to take one a day women's multivitamin in the evening and a super b-complex in the morning? Or can I take them together?

Overdoing it: There seems to be a myth in human experience that 'more is better'. In medicine it is proven over and over and over again that in almost all instances more is dangerous, less effective and causes more problems. Taking two different vitamins is unnecessary and puts extra strain on your liver and such. I would advise picking one and sticking to it. ...Read more
