Is it a bad idea to take Advil or tylenol (acetaminophen) when I have a really bad hangover?

Is it a bad idea to take Advil or tylenol (acetaminophen) when I have a really bad hangover?

Hangover: The best thing for a hangover is plenty of hydration, rest, & time -- also avoiding getting that drunk in the first place. Tylenol (acetaminophen) could add to liver injury/inflammation that you created by excessive alcohol; advil (ibuprofen) would be safer in this respect but could aggravate alcohol-induced gastritis if it's there. B-complex w/extra thiamine (100 mg) may counter b-vitamin depletion from alcohol. ...Read more

I've never taken tylenol. Is it pretty safe. What is the likely good of me being allergic? Ty

It's probably rare: Doctors don't have a crystal ball to look into the future, which means a doctor cannot predict whether or not a person will have some rare reaction. That's the way life is. However, in 25 years of practice, I have yet to meet a patient who is allergic to plain Tylenol containing only acetaminophen. ...Read more

Tylenol: In this particular case, you’re likely in okay shape. 4 grams is the daily dose limit for someone of your age who has a healthy liver. With that said, you’ll want to be extra careful in future now that you’ve had this scare. Do you need to be taking Tylenol regularly? You should be taking it for as short as possible for whichever condition you’re treating. If it’s not working, something more effec ...Read more

Can I take Tylenol extra strength with fioricet if I don't exceed 3000/24 hours?

Can I take Tylenol extra strength with fioricet if I don't exceed 3000/24 hours?

Be cautious: I would try and avoid taking up to 3000mg of tylenol on a regular basis regardless of what source. While 3000mg/24 is an accepted dosing amount. The potential for cumulative toxicity is still significant especially if you take it regularly. Also, be very cautious if you have liver problems, consume alcohol or take other medications metabolized in the liver.
Hope that helps. ...Read more

I have a cold and yesterday accidentally took 4000mg of APAP. I roughly took 2000mg twice 12hrs apart from each other. I took 2 500mg Tylenol and also?

See below: The max daily you should take is 4000mg. Sounds like you got 5000mg. I doubt that is going to cause a problem, but I certainly wouldn't take any more tylenol for a few days, if not a week. It is very hard on your liver. To be certain, you would need to have a tylenol level drawn. You could call poison control and ask their opinion as well. ...Read more
