If I I took ibuprohen 800mg 3 hours ago, can I take tylenol (acetaminophen) cold and sinus night time medication now?

Yes: Because these 2 are from different classes of medication, it is fine to alternate Ibuprofen and tylenol (acetaminophen) for a short term basis.

What can I take for a sinus cold while breastfeeding? I've been taking tylenol (acetaminophen) sinus and cold is it okay to take breastfeeding

May decrease milk: While it is safe to take that medication, just like it can dry up the mucous in your nose, it can dry up your milk production as well. I recommend local/topical treatment like a nasal spray such as afrin, humidity, nasal saline drops, or warm/steamy beverages such as teas. Also make sure to get plenty of fluids yourself - both to keep mucous thin and ensure your milk supply. ...Read more

Decongestants: It doesn't sound like you're taking any decongestants, which are the most important treatment for sinus congestion. Penicillin wouldn't be expected to treat sinusitis very effectively, and antibiotics aren't recommended for most cases of sinusitis. ...Read more

I accidentally took tylenol (acetaminophen) cold and sinus with other cough medicine, now I can't sleep and have difficultly of breathing, what will I do?

Sinus med and insomn: Sinus medications can prevent you from sleeping. If you cannot sleep with coffee then you will not sleep with sinus meds (sudafed for example). For decongestant at night use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and use sudafed (or equivalent) only strictly in daytime. If you cough more at night than daytime then you need a brocho-dilator to open your airways to stop coughing. Good doctors do not prescribe cough sirop. ...Read more

I have been taking 1-2 extra strength tylenol (acetaminophen) a day for 3 weeks due to sinus headaches while I wait to see allergist. Is that safe daily? For how long

Tylenol (acetaminophen) safety: Typically 6 grams of tylenol (acetaminophen) per day is safe for most adults, which would be two 500mg tablets every 4 hrs. However, two every 6 hrs. Would be a better choice. If you are treating a sinus pressure headache, try adding an over the counter decongestant nasal spray such as afrin, neosynephrine, 4-way etc. Be careful not to use these products for more than 2 days as they can cause rebound congestion. ...Read more
