Common Questions and Answers about Mixing ibuprofen and tylenol


Avatar n tn About mixing methadone and klonopins.....well here is my story...... i was on meth, and buying klonopin 2mgs.... well one day , actually night i took like 8 or 10mgs. of them. The next day on my way to the meth clinic i was fine. After i took my 85mgs (at the time) dose, well no later than 10 minutes went buy and i knew i was about to black out. I had to drive 20 minutes to the clinic. so i stopped at a friends in the area to do some coke to wake me up....yeah...i know....
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 m tn Before and after transplant I was directed to take only Tylenol for pain - never more than 2 grams per day and preferably 1 gram or less per day. I had no trouble with < 1 gram per day. I took 2 regular strength Tylenol - 325 mg each and if I needed more I took another 325 mg. I wasn't so much focusing on the safety of Tylenol because I thought we all knew about the liver toxicity associated with over-dosing Tylenol. The absurdity of the "study" piqued my interest.
179856 tn?1333550962 Proposed Tylenol restrictions worry patients FDA is considering reduced maximum dose, ban on Vicodin and Percocet WASHINGTON - Proposed limits on Tylenol, a painkiller as common as pain itself, have left many consumers fearful, confused and wondering where to turn for relief. The potential government crackdown on acetaminophen, Tylenol's main ingredient, would affect everyone from occasional pill poppers to chronic pain sufferers who rely on daily doses to make their lives more bearable.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Ibuprofen 800, for anti inflammatory aid but it is not helping with the pain. I was told that mixing ibup, and tylenol would make a better pain reliever with out prescription, is that correct?

173930 tn?1196341998 Have you ever had any trouble with the Redipen ? Last night when I prepared the shot, the dial would not move after pushing the pen down & mixing the shot. the it did, and did get some leakage, as well as the needle looking like it was crooked. What do I do if I don't think I got the full shot ? I don't remember any sx during the night and I feel fine right now, except some achiness in my wrists and ankles. the circle on my belly is half the size of the one from last week.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar n tn I can sympathize with you all. I myself just recently started experiencing dizziness associated with allergies. I turned 40 this year, and I have suffered from seasonal allergies for about ten years now, but it has never been accompanied with dizziness. I reside in NY and we have been having lots of rain lately, and for the past two weeks I have been experiencing dizziness.
Avatar n tn I loved it of course, and began stealing them from my friend's mom. When those ran out I began taking my usual hydrocodone and Tylenol 4's again, and didn't take any more Ultram for maybe 6-9 mos. Then I discovered that my friend's grandma was also taking Ultram, and decided to have another little binge. By the time my "binge" had lasted a couple of months, I knew I was hooked.
Avatar n tn I know that several additives in strong pain meds like aspirin, tylenol and ibuprofen definately can cause ulcers (I got one from taking codeine and aspirin some years ago) and/or liver damage. As far as damage from the narcotic goes, I haven't heard of much, although I've read some posts on this site referring to liver damage from oxycontin/percodan. I've read that, as drugs go, narcotics cause comparitively little damage by themselves. But that's just a generalization.
Avatar n tn I am very intrested in the use of a nebulizer and the mixing of the Astelin, Flonase etc. how do you mix it and then how are you getting it in your sinuses without a nebulizer? I don't even know what a nebulizer is but I need to find out. It's encouraging that you have had such remarkable results let me know how to use it if you can explain it.
211940 tn?1267884866 However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn However, there is validity to the premise that pain will actually keep you alive longer, and it's always an ongoing challenge to find the balance of pain and/or anxiety control. Remember, too, that acute co-morbid events, ie: coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting can occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state.

Avatar n tn perhaps you can do a web search on 'fulminant hepatitis with ibuprofen' and the same search with tylenol, and read the statistics offered and make a decission based on knowing the risks and on what works for you.
Avatar f tn Hi Lovemypillhead, I have watched your thread. Sandee has done a good job responding to your questions. I do not have a PMP because in Wisconsin our PMP are our PCP. That is all I have to go by. I have been on a pain medication with a small dose of tylenol for a number of years. I have asked my PCP about the dangers of that tylenol, several times. She claims that it's the over dosing or mixing with alcohol that you have to be most concerned about. I have blood tests about every 6-9 months.
535089 tn?1400677119 Substances Causing False Positives According to a report by the Los Angeles Times New Service, a study of 161 prescription and over the counter medications showed that 65 of them produced false positive results in the most widely administered urine test.
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 n tn 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. Rhuematoid tests are normal, no vitamin deffeciencies, I don't have an appendix, They checked for pancreatitis and gall stones, both negative.
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....
233616 tn?1312790796 Tylenol with alcohol ingestion can be toxic to the liver with lower doses of Tylenol than without the alcohol. Otherwise, for the general population, both Tylenol and Motrin (ibuprofen, an NSAIDS) have low(<1%) liver toxicity at the regular, recommended doses. Moreover, both drugs can usually be used, in the recommended doses prescribed by a physician, reasonably safely for the "flu" symptoms caused by interferon used for treating chronic hepatitis C.
Avatar n tn drinking alcohol and consuming aspirin or tylenol or ibuprophen at the same time is never a good idea, take the analgesics at a different time than you drink the wine. Anyone who has bruising of unknown causes should cut out alcohol altogether until they get to the bottom of why the bruising is happening.
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
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 ( im sure part of that was the methadone, part the back injury lasting 5 years, part my genetic tendancy towards depression etc and the fact that i was mixing my meds on a weeksly basis and i dont have any idea what they were except they took the pain away and some better than others and the ibuprofen tylenol aleve that i used quite alot of after i quit the opiates damaging my liver?. its been a horrible time with just a smattering of good days.
Avatar f tn My 1 yr old has a fever since last night and I've tried everything to get him to take his Tylenol I even tried ibuprofen but nothing works we still have to hold him and force it in then he gags after.
1109246 tn?1268196401 The tough part is 3-7 days and then it is much easier.When you have rebound pain take extra strength tylenol and ibuprofen in recommended doses till it subsides.It will become so much less that you may find you do not need pills at all for pain or only need otc pain meds.Immodium for the runs nand I always suggest b12 1000mcg,omegas,antioxidants with zinc,vitamin d1000u to build up your strength and immune system.Benadryl helps sleep.
Avatar m tn Youve got a pretty complicated regimen going there. My first thought was the cough syrup and diphenhydramine. Sometimes mixing these can cause more restlessness. For me, unfortunately, meds didnt help much. Time was the only answer; and that took a while. I was very grateful for what sleep I did get; some is way better than none. Keep on posting, hopefully more knowleadgable folks will come along. Dont give up, youre in the right place.
