ibuprofen

Avatar_m_tn According to research institutes, Ibuprofen overdose damages your internal organs like liver. While in some cases it has been reported that it has result in a permanent liver damage, in other cases where the victim was taking the dose for a long and continued period it has resulted in organ failure one by one.
Avatar_n_tn Doctors have their own preferences. Both ibuprofen and acetaminophen can be troublesome in large amounts over prolonged periods. Your liver is not in too bad shape so it probably won't make much difference which you use. The best thing to do is follow your doctor's instructions and use whichever is recommended sparingly.
Avatar_f_tn I take Ibuprofen as recommended by my hepatologist, but you have to be careful about taking it too often and never take it on an empty stomach. Tylenol didn't work for me either.
Avatar_m_tn Then she tells me that I need to go through all my shots for Hep B all over again since I missed the sequence between my first two shots. I asked her if this was going to be an overdose, she said no. Strange. I wonder if I need a second opinion or I should just take her words for it. I am so worried about this all.
1399008_tn?1280618921 First off, you didn't 'overdose' on ibuprofen; people take 800mgs up to four times a day without any issue. I've never heard about it causing lung failure. What it does cause is problems with the kidneys. I don't think your symptoms are much to be concerned about based on the things you have written and the fact you saw a doctor twice this month already. I would take it you had bloodwork done? What did that show?
Avatar_n_tn In April, 2009, the FDA ordered new labeling to draw attention to the potential for liver damage from acetaminophen overdose and stomach bleeds from nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents. “Acetaminophen is a common reason to need a new liver,” said Maurizio Bonacini, MD, liver transplant specialist at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, who headed the FDA petition project. “Every week we have patients who have run into trouble with acetaminophen toxicity.
Avatar_n_tn This nomogram is useful in deciding whether treatment should be given after a single, acute overdose. Ibuprofen, is not as hepatotoxic as acetaminophen. On the other hand, many patients have difficulty tolerating non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen because of their gastrointestinal side effects (dyspepsia, gastric and duodenal inflammation and ulceration and bleeding). I hope you find this information helpful.
Avatar_f_tn EXCEPT I take 24 to 36 Nurofen+ per day (infrequently up to 42 per day), and no one in my life knows about this. This is literally the only secret in my life. (thats 12.9mg codeine and 200mg ibuprofen, I'm not sure what the equivalent is in the States) It started totally innocently – knowing that as an ex-addict I need to be ever-vigilant of becoming re-addicted to anything, I avoided all codeine for several years but eventually stated taking Mersyndol Day Strength ( 9.
Avatar_f_tn about a week after we broke up he took 60 tramodol tables and his sister found him having a seizure on her bed. he was took to hospital and was bleeding when he wee'd. they discharged him, god knows why because hes overdoses about 5 times this year.
Avatar_m_tn People with liver disease who have had internal bleeding, - from an ulcer or esophageal varices, for example, may be at risk for recurrent bleeding induced by NSAIDs, and should totally avoid this class of medications. People who are also taking corticosteroids (such as prednisone), or anticoagulants (such as coumadin) may have and increased risk of complications from NSAIDs.
Avatar_n_tn Taking more, especially 7000 mg or more, can lead to a severe overdose if not treated. Overdose symptoms may not present themselves for 12 -24 hours AFTER taking the tylenol. Soon after taking an overdose of acetaminophen, you may have no symptoms from taking a toxic amount. You may remain symptom free for up to 24 hours after taking a toxic overdose of acetaminophen.
Avatar_m_tn However, when taken in excessive quantities or when combined with alcohol, acetaminophen may cause death due to liver failure. In fact, an overdose of acetaminophen is the most common cause of fulminant hepatic failure as well as the most common cause of drug-induced liver disease in the United States. After acetaminophen became readily available in 1960 as an over-the-counter medication, it became one of the most popular means of attempting suicide.

Avatar_f_tn If you want to be able to skip periods, get a monophasic (all pills same dose) birth control pill for yourself, and just start a new pack after week 3 anytime you want to skip a period (but you shouldn't do it more than 3 months in a row). Ibuprofen can give you stomach ulcers in overdose, and is bad for your kidneys. I also don't know of any mechanism by which it would stop a period.
Avatar_n_tn the alcohol acts as a solvent pumping the painkillers into your system much paster, causing recreaction effects but also causing many more heart and respiration/overdose episodes. tylenol alone for yur joint may help with no codiene, and it is mainly the kidneys that metabolize it, Yes it does sound like suicide for you liver at the very least. Dependancy on drug with alcohol is a vicious circle that can do much more damage in one tenth the time than consumming either one alone.

233616_tn?1312790796 that cough medicine add 10% alcohol to cold remedies containing it, knowing this sould easily cause an overdose with the alcohol added, plus whatever else the person in on.....but do they care? No, the alcohol make thier drug work better so to heck with those who don't know it may keep thier other meds in the bloodstrem 10x longer...if they end up in hospital after a few days with the Nyquil...with drug induced hepatitis or worse after drinking the stuff...oh well...
Avatar_n_tn If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately. US residents can call the US national poison hotline at 1-800-222-1222. Canadian residents should call their local poison control center directly. Symptoms of overdose may include unusually slow heartbeat, severe dizziness, slow or shallow breathing, weakness, or fainting. NOTES: Do not share this medication with others.
Avatar_f_tn I was told ibuprofen too. and yesterday he said that I could take many as 800 mg at a time twice a day for headaches etc. I rarely touch the stuff though except on shot nights and then I only take one 200 mg. It never took much for me anyway.
Avatar_n_tn It is the big worry when someone takes an overdose. Ibuprofen is also liver toxic. Prescription doses are 800 milligrams every 8 hours or every six hours. Over the counter is 400 milligrams every 4 to 6 hours. I like the vitamin M (Motrin). 800 milligrams once or twice a day smooths out some of the rough edges while on this nasty tx. I stay away from tylenol based products as much as possible, unless incorporated in a narcotic (Vicodin, Darvocet) and I need it for serious pain control.
Avatar_m_tn This is similar to nalaxone ( a competitive opiate antagonist used to reversed heroin overdose), but comes in a pill form. Anyway, what I would like to do is get a prescription for Nalmefene (AKA "Selincro") to accelerate the physical withdrawal process, and also to block much of the effects of taking codeine - i.e. to make it so I don't get high even if I take codeine. Does this sound good/bad/stupid/genius to anyone?
6708370_tn?1450863629 You also have to watch for esophageal bleeding. Spontaneous bleeding can happen if your platelets are very low. So I once asked one of the hepatologists how low do platelets have to be to spontaneously bleed and whether he'd seen somebody spontaneously bleed. He said around 10 or 15 and he had seen a few patients spontaneously bleed but they were very ill people who were in the hospital at the time. Some medications can lower platelets.
460948_tn?1232305722 And narcotics do not take the place of anti-inflamatories anyway like aspirin and ibuprofen....ask for another option like lyrica, zanafles or nuerontin...something that helps with pain.....I just find this doctor hard to believe...if you do this...
Avatar_m_tn By about the fourth week on triple therapy he began having rectal/anal pain and bleeding, probably due to internal hemorrhoids. That comes and goes (no pun intended). More recently, symptoms of anemia (weakness, shortness of breath, fatigue, pale, cold hands/feet) resulting in a small dose reduction in riba. Ask any questions. May your side effects be mild.
Avatar_m_tn this make him limited to different options offered, his platelet count low related to hep-c, he mainly drops off to sleep during the day, no significant pain, nausea, or bleeding, he does suffer severe leg cramps at night and some cramping or muscle spasms in his hand, no jaundice either, but he experienced a lot of itching at times, not on any treatment yet, expected to start on Nexavar soon and hoping for the best, no other treatment options offered.
Avatar_n_tn Naproxen is also not recommended for use with NSAIDs of the salicylate family (drugs may reduce each other's effects), nor with anticoagulants (may increase risk of bleeding). Certain preparations of naproxen are not recommended for use in patients with hypertension, as they contain sodium, potentially worsening the effects of hypertension, in the very small subset of people who exhibit sodium-sensitive hypertension.
179856_tn?1333550962 Acetaminophen overdose is a leading cause of liver damage in the United States. Researchers say it resulted in fifty-six thousand emergency room visits a year during the nineteen nineties. There were almost four hundred sixty deaths a year from liver failure. http://www.voanews.com/specialenglish/2009-07-07-voa3.
Avatar_n_tn He gave me Nexium pills for my stomach. He told me not to take any other pills except Tylenol or Ibuprofen for my headaches. He also draws blood to see if I had any stomach problems. I started taking my pills and my stomach felt better and I could sleep at night now. Since then until now I have felt different sensations inside my head, but being completely numb and empty. My head has felt completely numb for around two months. One day I felt like there were wires inside my head.
