Common Questions and Answers about Can you take imitrex with tylenol


15031 tn?1219072889 If you do not know excedrine has aspirin in it and aspirin is not safe to take when you are pg. Apirin is a blood thinner, which can cause bleeding. So I would recommend contacting your DR if they get to bad.
Avatar m tn No, they are not going to give you more Imitrex, you hit max dose so, that is the max you can have. The last time I went to the ER for a migraine the only thing they gave me was Toradol in my IV and it did absolutely nothing. They let me go a few hours later and gave me an Rx of Tylenol 3 which did nothing. ERs do not freely give out narcotics because of everyone abusing them so much these days. One bad apple ruins it for everyone and we are the ones that suffer due to other's selfishness.
Avatar n tn I would like to be able to take tylenol to change up the medication as I feel you get used to only using one type. I cannot take imitrex or any other the triptan type drugs due to heart arrythmia. I used to take tylenol for years before this started happening. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I also do not get throat swelling or any other symptom. Thanks I appreciate your comments.
Avatar f tn THANK YOU! for your comments. I have been struggling with this issue for a long time. I have already tried to find a chronic pain dr who will even take me as a patient.. When I tell them my age and what I am looking to do, they have told me "Your PCP can handle this!" But she is so resistant!! I have never even had a drink of alcohol. I gave birth to 5 HUGE babies via C-section and came home from the hospital with extra strength Tylenol. I have had migraines for 52 years, off and on.
Avatar n tn After my first shot (180ml) my ANC dropped to 200 and with neupogen its gotten up to 900 (but he said that with my sharp drop in the beginning 180ml is risky). I became undectable (week 11) with 2 shots at 180ml and 9 at 135ml. Can you please let me know if you think I should press for my doc to increase it since my ANC has increased. As someone who has achieved SVR, your opinion is greatly appreciated. By the way congrats on your SVR, you deserve it.
Avatar f tn Hi princess. I also alternate with tylenol and advil, but have heard a prescription called topomax (sp?) helps. I don't know any of the risks with it, but it might be worth asking your doctor. Hang in there, it will all be worth it in the end.
Avatar n tn Ive also on PLENTY of occasions taken over 4000MG of Tylenol/apap at onetime with regular Vicodins before,and had no liver damage or issues,some people never take over 1000Mg at once but that isnt true because my DR told me technically you can take 4,000MG at onetime as long as you dont take anymore for 24 hours,its just dont take more than 4,000MG of APAP/Tylenol in a day or u risk liver damage. Im just trying to help ya out,if u ever have more ?
395684 tn?1216001324 If the pain continues, and the tests remain non-revealing, you can consider a consult with a pain management specialist. More invasive pain management options can include epidural injections or trigger point injections.

395684 tn?1216001324 The narcotics are not working, I am still in pain, no one will help and I can't take much more, I get up every day and wish that I didn't, there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel and I am not sure how much more I can take, please help me if you can. I have even went to the Cleveland Clinic which is one of the three top ranked hospitals in the United States, they didn't help at all. I lost my job because of missing so much, I need to get healthy so I can get to work.
Avatar f tn Take Tylenol if it doesn't go away with medicine you need to get checked out.
Avatar n tn You will eradicate this evil virus and banish it from your life forever! Stay positive you can do this, you are very strong, stronger than you think you are! Just so you know, I get strength from YOU and your contributions here.
Avatar f tn Another trigger, Since I am off my pain meds, I use liquor, tylenol or advil, although you should not drink alcohol with tylenol-- monthly menstrual cycle. Progesterone? one of the female hormones causes migraines, and increases all pain already have in body. Might be able to manipulate foods that time of month, to lessen. I get at least one migraine hit day, a month,regardless. Use imitrex, unless no cash, plus wanted to stop med, so I have a few liquor shots, and rest if I can.
Avatar f tn Hi and welcome....i agree with Happy that this road you are on will take you down a dark place that 's hard to come up from....please talk to a doctor or addiction specialist about what you are feeling as far as how they make you feel...that's the problem with opiates, they make you feel euphoric and want more and more....that's the addiction/dependence pushing you to take more and more for that same feeling....stop now before it gets any will be so glad you did...
1941650 tn?1324594347 Since a severe headache with fever can be a warning sign of problems with the pregnancy, tell your doctor right away if you experience anything like this, or a headache that comes with painful cramps like bad PMS.
Avatar f tn But on the same token I have been told that if you don't usually get them you can get them while you are pregnant. My cousin only got them when she was pregnant and a good friend of mine stopped getting them when she was pregnant. Go figure!
Avatar f tn Ask her what supplements you can take to prevent them because there are supplements. Also, is Tylenol (acetaminophen) off the table? Because OTC migraine meds (such as Excedrin migraine) are caffeine and acetaminophen. I do know that caffeine is best to avoid with bipolar disorder, but ask her about if taking that for your migraines is too much because there should be no reason for you to simply have to put up with them.
Avatar f tn Since being dx'd with Fibromyalgia or CFS/ME, what steps do you take to deal with your pain and what medications are you taking to treat your symptoms? What would you say your daily pan level is (how you feel most days on a scale of 1-10 with 1 being the lowest and 10 the most severe pain?) I am on Lyrica, Ultram, Sertraline, Detro, Estracel for Fibro, Menopause and Neuropathy. At night I take Trazadone and Xanax so that I can sleep, otherwise the RLS/PLMD would keep me up all night.
Avatar n tn I'm still stuggling with frequent migraines but have found some things that work for me. I take Tylenol PM if I'm where I can nap a bit, that seems to help sometimes and it isn't chemically addictive. Massage seems to help some but it can be expensive, see if you can get a Dr. to prescribe PT for it (I have a bad shoulder and TMJD so it's usually easy to get some PT).
Avatar m tn Let me start off by saying that I'm sensitive to a lot of medications and some did make things worse, like you mentioned your daughter is experiencing. Topamax and imitrex caused me worse headaches. I did Botox injections in the skull -- horrific experience and left me with intractable head pain like I get following spinal taps. Topical lidoderm patches make *some* impact and don't experience the same sympyoms as they're not ingested. The relief, though, isn't as deep.
768044 tn?1294227036 A preventative treatment plan can also include supplements such as Vitamin B2, magnesium and co enzyme Q10 or herbal treatments such as feverfew. When thinking about how satisfied you are with your acute treatment plan, think about how often you get migraines with your preventative treatment plan in place, and if there is any reduction to the severity of your migraines with your preventative treatment plan in place.
Avatar f tn Motrin and Tylenol only take the edge off her pain. Abilify and Intuniv for the Bipolar and ADHD. All of her symptoms are pretty much daily, and the blindness happens nearly everytime she gets up out of bed, sometimes in the middle of the night. She also has the blindness sometimes in one eye, sometimes in the periphery of her vision like tunnel vision. She has no allergies and up until this all started in September 2011 was healthy.
Avatar n tn For a regular headache I just take 1 tylenol. For a migraine, I take Imitrex. I think just about any pain reliever would be okay unless he is taking it daily and taking a lot of it.
1389553 tn?1280785727 Some doctors will prescribe a combination of Metoclopramide with a pain killer such as Tylenol with Codeine. Combining Metoclopramide with a triptan is also very effective. You could ask your doctor about Metoclopramide. I hope this information is helpful! Keep in touch!
Avatar n tn Heather Ashton, one of the world's top 5 experts in Benzodiazepines. I plead with you to take extreme caution with valium and the other Benzos. You can become addicted, in less than 2 weeks !!! And, if you have a predisposition to other addictions, I would be very careful. I am writing this to spare people of the horrendous withdrawl and protracted withdrawl that we ,on Benzos experience. It is a living hell at times. Now I am down to 9mgs.and every day is a struggle.
1091490 tn?1256910110 Without the ability to examine your son and obtain a history, I can not tell you what the exact cause of your symptoms is. However I will try to provide you with some useful information. In adolescents, migraines are common, and in children with a strong family history, migraines can occur at this age and be severe. I am not sure what you mean by the statement the headache has not subsided.
789911 tn?1368640383 Of course it depends what kind of condition your liver is in. If it is functioning normally you can take iron. If you have iron overload because you liver isnt working well, then of course you cant take it. I have minimal liver damage and also had low Iron. and also needed the procrit. Anyone chime in please.
559554 tn?1216646159 Chronic daily headaches that do not go away even with medication and Topamax and Lamictal. I have to take the Lamictal since Topamax can cause seizures and I am on the maxed out dose of Topamax. 2. Numbness in my hands sometimes that will run up my arm. Mostly my left side though and my headaches are on the right side though and move to all over. 3.EXHAUSTION for sure there are days I do not do anything because I can not seem to bring myself to get motivated. 4.
1017096 tn?1255971900 They would be able to best advise you about preventatives, good abortives (meds that you take once you feel a migraine is starting - triptans like Imitrex and Zomig are often used), and rescue meds (pain meds that you use if the abortives fail to work). I hope you find relief.
1035252 tn?1427231433 On the other hand if you don't call them you just might end up in the E.R and I know you don't want that if you can avoid it.
