As long as you are not allergic to advil
, you are ok so far. Here is what i recommend for my patients: take 4 advil (which is 800mg of ibuprofen
), then 3 hours later take 2 extra-strength tylenol (which is 1000mg acetaminophen
), then 3 hours later 4 advil, then 3 hours later 2 es tylenol, and continue this regimen until you are seen, but no longer than 10 days.
