Mixing advil with tylenol

Common Questions and Answers about Mixing advil with tylenol


Avatar f tn When I looked at the drugs he took I was horrified as I was INSTRUCTED to take three of those drugs for an in-office procedure that I had done back in August of last year, when my anxiety was SKY high and new to me. I remember the Doctor was upset with me because I kept calling her office and speaking with her nurse, doublechecking on the meds and WHY I had to take them.
119341 tn?1232567357 I've been told that pain relievers are okay to take after an hour but that Tylenol is much better than Advil. Something about Advil and asprin being blood thinners and how the thyroid med is absorbed...not entirely sure on that one. I also have to wait at least four hours before taking my iron supplement.
Avatar n tn i have teenage neice who is now on methadone becuase of a nasty oxy addiction, i will warn her of the dangers of taking her methadone and mixing it with her drug of choice, which could easly happen to her , i could just see her hanging with her freinds on a friday night and someone giving her an oxy .she is 19 and has been on the methadone for 2 months now. peace !!!!!!!hippy thanx this information could wind up saving her life.
Avatar m tn What I am wondering is if it is possible to take tylenol with codeine to take away the headache, without having a overdose or something crazy to that effect???
Avatar n tn My doctor said to take tylenol only (and i am an Advil addict) because the ibuprophen changes your BLOOD chemistry and that is something you really don't want to do while you are on treatment. At least he gave me an excuse that made sense so I listen to him...I hate going blind with "just don't do it". I miss my advil's but trust his advice.
Avatar f tn I do remember a few years ago they ( FDA or some govt agency) were talking about taking vics off of the market because of people going into liver failure with taking them and mixing with other actiminaphine containing drugs.I guess upto 7000 mgs a day of actiminaphine is ok but still I dont know why.
179856 tn?1333550962 only the name in most countries is the former, except in the US where it's always called the latter, or tylenol. But you are right mixing it with other things doesn’t help. ALL I'm not familiar with any stats proving what causes the most liver deaths, but I do know that studies indicate the the regular use of almost any painkiller, be it OTC or Rx'd causes an increase in the progression of fibrosis.
Avatar n tn Kava-Kava also has a strong effect on the CNS and could cause some problems mixing with Ultram. I tried Kava-Kava for alcohol withdrawal and had seizures all day long. It sucked. I was saved the next day by my doctor who at that time gave me Librium. That was last November. I have since had ove 100 seizures from alcohol withdrawal and seperate seizure disorder apparently covered up by the alcoholism.
Avatar n tn I had flu symptoms for the first 2 shots. I alternated tylenol and advil all day and night during the first 48 hours after each shot. I had chills and body aches that would wake me up if I didn't. That was it though. I have noticed a decrease in the number of episodes and I felt like I had more energy within a couple of months. They have a nurse come to your house to teach you to give it to yourself. It is very easy but I had my husband there and he does mine now.
Avatar n tn Yes, because Advil contains no acetominophen. (Tylenol). However, Percocet DOES contain Tylenol so you cannot take any other tylenol products with the Percocet.
Avatar f tn I know that it's not good to take with Advil and can cause internal bleeding but not sure about the others. I'd check with your doctor if symptoms persist That seems like quite a lot of meds to be mixing. Best wishes!
Avatar m tn Hi astroturf I would also describe myself as anxious and a worrier I'm not on any meds I do clench my teeth and grind them at night I have a TON of floaters, since I was a kid I have migraine with aura I cannot see the spots in the dark, unless I'm watching TV or on the computer etc They are most noticeable against light backgrounds, the sky and when glancing at anything with contrast. horizontal blinds and lined paper are awful.
Avatar f tn And the other night I had pretty bad RLS already. Luckily it was just for about 24 hrs and then it was gone. I'm eating Tylenol, Advil, Motrin, etc like candy every morning when I wake, and before bed at night. I'm still optimistic... Just feeling a little low today. Gonna keep pushing through. I do feel better after I take my 27mg... It just isn't holding me til night time is all. And I try to wait until late morning-noon before taking it (and I'm up at 7am everyday...
Avatar f tn u had surgery, broke your arm...something where u will recover and probably feel like new again).............compared to taking it for long term pain relief (ie: u need to have surgery but u can't so u have to manage the pain this way) does that make sense?
Avatar n tn It's almost crippling at times and I've been to dozens of doctors and specialists about it. The day it first started, I was diagnosed with costochondritis and sent home with a bottle of advil. I won't take anything narcotic or addictive, but I've tried everything that they make OTC, I can get about a half hour of relief if I take 400 MG tylenol, 400 MG ibuprofen, 500 MG naproxen and a goody's powder. needless to say, I can't take all of that junk every 30 minutes.
Avatar f tn Literally my back is hurting so bad that it is giving me pounding headaches and I can barley function. I have tried Advil, Aleve, Ibuprofen, and Tylenol and nothing touches it! I obviously don't want to be on Hydro, but am I going to have to live with this pain for the rest of my life?!? I'm not sure i can do it!
Avatar f tn I take amnitriptyline, effexor, fossomax, pravistatin, calcium and vitamin D. I treat my migraines with Tylenol 1's and Advil. I am a 57 year old female who has born 11 children.

1136797 tn?1261388933 (or am i thinking of lithium?? maybe) Anyhow, always check with your pharmacist before mixing any meds like that. Take lots of hot baths and use a heating pad too for the aches/pains/chills. And just ride it out. Its no fun, for sure, but you can do it. THeres hundreds of us here on this forum alone that have done it. Its not easy but you can do it if youre really determined. Keep using your little girl for motivation. Read and post here as much as possible!
Avatar n tn Sara, is correct you DEFINITELY need to go see a Dr. ASAP!!! She'. also correct about mixing the Tylenol and the alcoholic beverages! Please stop that immediately. Do you take the Tylenol EVERY day or was it just yesterday? The thing that is concerning is your bloated stomach and the malaise that you are feeling. PLEASE check with your Dr.!!! Also, please let us know what the Dr. saysas we are extremely concerned about you....
Avatar n tn They didn't give me anymore pain meds though, they just said take advil and tylenol. So I went home and complained to my mother of the pain and she gave me a left-over bottle of Darvocet which she hadn't used. There were perhaps 20 of the big red ones in there. I hadn't ever heard of it. She said to be careful, they make you sleepy. So I started taking between 3-5 of these a day in addition to advil and smoking weed (still, I know, I'm an addict).
Avatar n tn The only caution I got beyond the recommended dail dosage limit was mixing Tylenol with other Acetometaphines and/or NSAIDS. I was told low dosage of Ibuprofen was OK as long is it was outside of the coverage period for the dosage of Tylenol I was taking. I've found the Ibuprofen works better for headaches and muscle pains than Tylenol for me, but none seem to help when headaches appear to be caused by anemic condition.
590968 tn?1226991167 I have been on this treatment for 9 months and 1 week, I have exactly 7 weeks and 3 days to go and I have not taken any drugs other than Tylenol for chills and flu like symptoms and Advil for headaches that the Tylenol doesn't work for. I don't think you should be mixing narcotics with these drugs we are all ready on. This is some heavy meds we are taking, why would you want to put more **** in your body.

Avatar m tn If any of you tapered did you watch the clock or did you just wait as long as you could. I have been loading up on Advil to help with the pain and I tell you it seems to be helping. I am sure it's better for my liver than the hydro is.
Avatar f tn You can always call your pharmacist and they can also address your concerns but based on experience from taking these types of medications long term, you are most likely okay and the headache may be unrelated to the percocet. Lastly, the one thing you do want to be careful with is mixing alcohol with the percocet as the acetaminophen combined with alcohol can cause severe liver problems and even liver failure if the two are mixed on a regular basis. I hope your headache gets better soon.
Avatar n tn Sorry - got a little sidetracked - to answer your question, yes suboxone should help in your situation. You will be able to transfer over to a maintenance medication that will help you avoid the worst of the withdrawals. The lower the dose of suboxone, the clearer you'll probably find that your mind is as well. You can taper down and actually stop taking it eventually, although that's a process in itself. For now, I think it sounds like a good fit for what you are describing.
1178705 tn?1263939738 When i wasn't taking tramadol i was taking a supplement called 5htp which helped alot with fatigue, just not so much with the pain. It's a natural serotonin compound from a plant called grifferonias of something like that. Melatonin before bed helps also, but not if your going to try 5htp and not if your already on anti depressents, mixing them can cause serotonin syndrome. what meds are you currently taking? what have you tried in the past?
Avatar m tn My pain was so bad that I was taking Tylenol and Advil as well as tramadol which was giving me headaches from taking to much! Thank you for for letting me stumble upon this Fix! It truly worked miracles where over the counter and one prescription for tramadol wouldn't touch it! I sincerely hope you try this to help you as well as it really works!
Avatar f tn the headache is a normal side effect of suboxone...you can take advil or tylenol, advil seems to work better for me. if you feel fine at 2, 8 mg tabs, then no need to take anymore, you might find you may need more the first few days, and once your drug of choice has left your system you will need less...so in 5-7 days you can taper down some... dont take anything else with this unless advised to do so by your doctor...you dont know if there will be side effects or not...
Avatar m tn it is very addicting and I doubt you want to go down that road. For sleep you can try Melatonin 10 mg, Advil PM and/or Tylenol PM. A good hot soak in the epsom salts before bedtime. Try to make sure your room is cool and dark. There will be other comments as the night goes on...several in here are very savvy on the types of foods to eat while going CT. Bananas is great...don't force yourself to eat a ton. Drink Boost if your tummy is not happy with heavier food.
