Ibuprofen and dayquil

Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen and dayquil


5190574 tn?1364920350 I've been taking Ibuprofen, Dayquil/Nyquil, sinus decongestant. Not all together of course, but I usually do take the Ibuprofen with whatever I take for the sinuses. And nothing! My face hurts so bad, feels like my head is in a vicescript, terrible head ache, ear ache, throat hurts, coughing, runny nose, nausea, diarreha, loss of appetite. I can't find anything to take the pain away. What can I do to make this pain go down?
Avatar m tn It persisted for 2 1/2 weeks until I took Aleve (I'm allergic to ibuprofen and acetaminophen) a night prior to my visit to the doctor The next morning I woke up with none of the symptoms. When I got checked it was just a body check no blood test or urine test but the doctor said I seemed fine and told me if the symptoms came back I should come back to get lab tested and blood withdrawn and spinal tap but the symptoms did not come back.
1154462 tn?1327437979 I think probably my immune system is just weak these days because i've battled with a cold and sore throat the entire past week. I thought light of it and just treated by resting/Ibuprofen. Last night I left at 2 am to get some Nyquil from nearby Safeway, turns out they're closed from 1-5am. the local 7-eleven also didn't have anything. I came back disappointed. Figured i'll pick up the meds from Walmart on the way to work at 4 since I couldn't sleep anyways!

Avatar f tn I have tried pretty much EVERYTHING I could to get off painpills ! I've gone to the dr & was prescribed suboxone thinking it would help me quit... It didn't & no don't do it! All the suboxone was for me was something to take so I wouldn't have withdrawls until I could get my next fix. If you only took it for like a week or two, then I think it could really help, but do NOT take it longer than 2 weeks because drs.
2218623 tn?1355282113 I think anything without alcohol is fine?... I used to just get the Johnson's vapor bath stuff for babies and use it along with ibuprofen...

474856 tn?1207703492 Today, he called me at work and his temperature is 104.2 even though medicated with ibuprofen and Dayquil. I increased his ibuprofen dosage to a "prescription strength" amount. Put him to bed, and 3 hrs. later his temp dropped to 100. But as he is lying here beside me finally asleep he is wheezing and that scares me. What do I need to do?
1222076 tn?1423031349 After I wrote this I bought some Dayquil because I was tired of always taking ibprofan. The dayquil helped a few days later I started getting better and it eventally completely stopped hurting. Now my mom is battling a sore throat hers has lasted a while like mine did but hers seems to go away then reoccur so either we had a virus from the cold or she has something different then I did. Im just glad my sore throat finally went away. Its aweful always being in pain that long.
Avatar m tn I've taken allegra but it didn't have any effect. I'm thinking ibuprofen or something like dayquil. What about mucinex?
Avatar f tn The nyquil helps you sleep with something similar to benedryl, which dries up your nose and makes you sleepy. Ibuprofen and tylenol can be taken together, and you can always ask the pharmacist about combinations. Sleeping propped up might help, so that the stuff dripping down your throat doesn't stay there to make it sore. Oh, and if you feel your lungs crackling/feeling like rice crispies, you probably have pneumonia (been there, done that).
Avatar f tn I myself, who is a very healthy 26 year old woman (non-smoking) have had the same trouble. It started with ibuprofen and has additionaly become allergy medicine. I went to the doctor and they thought possibly I was having an early symptom of mitrial valve prolapse. In other words, I did not get an answer. I am very interested in your daughter's diagnosis. I.E. I didn't follow any further with my concerns because of doctors looking at me like I am crazy.
Avatar f tn This feeling is by far one of the worst feelings it makes my head feel heavy I don't feel like my self and it makes me feel drowsy and it doesn't allow me to concentrate and when I move around and walk or talk even for a short period of time I feel disoriented. I went to the doctor around the 3.5 week mark he told me when a cold does not go after about 2 weeks it's most likely a sinus infection and gave me antibiotics and a cough syrup to take.
731024 tn?1231473511 I never found anything but DayTime (it's like DayQuil, just cheaper) and it didn't help. My parents woke up at about 6, and I went back into their room. I told my mom that my throat was hurting really bad, and she asked me if I took anything for it. I told her I had taken DayTime but it didn't help. She gave me some NightTime, and an 800mg painkiller. It helped me, and she ended up taking me to the doctors (didn't go to school).
Avatar f tn If you have a cough, Delsym works really well, and that's often the reason folks are up at night. Ibuprofen tends to work better for muscular aches than does Tylenol too. Hope this in some way helps.
535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
Avatar f tn I tried 6 over the counter medicines, like Dayquil or ibuprofen. It never worked and didn't numb the pain. I went to the ER and they gave me an IV and medicines through that but they also didn't do anything. The doctors there didn't run tests or even say what could be wrong. I then had to take 500mg of Divalproex Sodium twice a day for two weeks. I then went to a neurologist where, once again, I got prescribed more medicine without a diagnosis.
Avatar dr m tn Nitric oxide is lethal to bacteria and viruses and is also known to increase oxygen absorption in your lungs from 10-25 percent. This is why it's important to inhale through your nose, especially when you are exercising. Your smell and taste buds are connected. If you can't breathe well through your nose, then your sense of smell will suffer, which means that your sense of taste will be altered as well. This can lead to appetite and weight issues.
Avatar n tn On Wednesday I went to the hospital and they attributed it to a recent exercise program I had started even though I had stopped it a week earlier. They prescribed percocet and muscle relaxers and ibuprofen. This didn't even ease the pain, By Friday I could not move without excruciating pain going up my head. I went to the doctor and he said the same, must be your recent exercise. He said take more of the percocet, gave me an anti-inflamitory shot and sent me for X-rays.

Avatar n tn It does get better I promise, just don't give up now hot showers/baths help along with otc ibuprofen 200mg. 2-3 every 4-6hrs seems to help with the pain also. Drink lots of fluids and get active as soon as you can as it will help to clear you system. Good luck and God bless.
1035252 tn?1427231433 - but if this is as bad as it's goin to get, I got off way too easy. My pain is pretty bad, but I just ate some bread and I'm about to take 800mg ibuprofen and see how it goes(stomach too touchy for the toradol)....it's definitely not as bad as I thought it would be though. I do have a bit of advice for anyone just starting/thinking about starting...abandon your dignity and any self-images you have of being the perfect wife/mommy/son/daughter/husband/father.....
Avatar m tn A bright side is that I noticed how much I would forget when I was high on pills, and I really wasnt as intelligent and productive as I thought I was. I have a demanding job that requires attending meetings and being alert and productive all day. So it is hard to be at work while detoxing. I rely on caffeine, it is about all that can keep my mood somewhat up. And try making to-do lists. If your like me you will start to feel overwhelmed having to do everything without the drugs energy.
Avatar f tn I am having the similar problems. I feel dizzy and then my heart starts racing and I feel like I need to have a bowel movement. It is very scary. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/235578'>VAGUS NERVE and STOMACH or HEART LURCHES (spasms)</a>.

162948 tn?1205256292 I got my IUD out on Aug 5th and am ttc. I have had lots of spotting and maybe a period but nothing regular. I called my doc and they said that it takes 3 months before the hormones are out of your system. The mirena website makes it sound as though you can get pregnant anytime after removal. Any advice/stories would be appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Five months after the implant I elected to have the swine flu vaccination which resulted in a numb feeling and tingling in the extremities along with diarrhea and dizziness that subsided after a few days. Since then the tingling has combined with the aching in the lower extremities and progressed upward to include the thighs. Exercise makes all of the symptoms worse, as I experience severe aching and muscle twitching after any kind of physical activity.
