See below. Nuprin was continued. Nuprin, advil, and Motrin are all the same - they are brand names for ibuprofen. Tylenol is a brand name for a different but related chemical called acetaminophen. Advil, motrin, and tylenol should still be widely available. But you don't need to spend money on these brands. Just get the cheaper store generic - read the label - it will be exactly the same.
I have knee pain and I've tried motrin, ibuprofen, tylenol (acetaminophen) etc. And none of it helps. Is there anything else that I can take?
Visit your doctor. Knee pain has many causes. Pain relief does not equal cure. You need to have your condition evaluated and see if you need physical therapy or surgery to cure the underlying conditon and to relieve the pain.
See Dr. Over the counter meds like glucosamine or fish oil likely won't help either. You need a formal DX to know what to do next.
While on valproic acid (depakene), is it safer to use acetaminophen (tylenol) or ibuprofen (motrin)?
Check With Your MD. One should always check with their physician if they have specific questions regarding their medical care. In general, both Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen are safe to take with valproic acid. Taking more than 4000mg of Acetaminophen is not recommended due to liver toxicity. Patients taking valproic acid should have their liver function evaluated regularly by a simple blood test.
While taking valproic acid (depakene), is it safer to take acetaminophen (tylenol) or ibuprofen (motrin)?
Depakote. Either one, not to exceed recommended dose.
1500 mg of. Acetaminophen at once is a large dose and you shouldn't take more than 3000 mg total per day on a regular basis. It's good to combine tylenol (acetaminophen) wth advil for an additive analgesic effect since they work through different mechanisms.
