Took 3 advil pms.....?
Will I be okay if I took three advil pm's the recommended dosage is 2. Asked by Kory Melillo 1 month ago.

they'd help relieve the soreness yet there is one draw lower back to making use of them. There are normally tight muscle tissues inflicting maximum pains and the advil would not launch them placing you as much as repeat the soreness repeatedly. there are a thank you to launch the muscle tissues to do away with the soreness which stops the rigors from repeating like that. in simple terms ought to comprehend what pains you're medicating that should assist you out.

My mom has been taking the Advil pill to make her sleep better, shes been taking these pill for a while now but she keeps telling me that she takes a pill every night but cant really sleep. Yesterday and today she told me that her head hurts so much in the back that it feels like her head going to fall off. She got me worried so can my mom overdose or can something happen to her? Should i tell her to go see a doctor better? please help. Thanks! Answered by Cleotilde Nighbert 1 month ago.

Advil PM contains ibuprofen 200mg and diphenhydramine 38mg. The maximum daily dose of ibuprofen 200mg is 6 tablets. For diphenhydramine it is unclear as it's dependent on weight and the individual person but from what I've read it seems ingesting more than 1g is NOT a good idea (but keeping in mind that some females have survived ingesting up to 16g). The recommended dose is 50mg at bedtime, so even though 2 tablets will "overdose", the Advil PM website actually says to take 2 tablets at once. But either way she should be fine if she only takes one each night. Re: the comment above, you don't necessarily need to vomit to have overdosed, and by then it's probably too late. Classic example is paracetamol/acetaminophen overdose. You don't start feeling unwell until several hours after and by then it's too late. Now as to what I'd do in your situation would be to take your Mum to the Dr. Unexplained, severe head pain is all alarm bells to me. Answered by Siobhan Gingery 1 month ago.

She has probably gotten to the point where her body has become used to the pill and it's not helping her anymore. She probably is having real pain but the advil's just aren't helping anymore. She could try excedrin for migraines or tylenol rapid release. If your mom takes to many at one time she could overdose. However she would get sick and start vomiting if she takes to many at once. Please keep a watch on her and encourage her to go to the E.R. If she doesn't have insurance then she can always set up a payment plan. It's so nice of you to be concerned about her. However, you take care of yourself and your well being too! God Bless you sweetie!! Answered by Digna Rabenhorst 1 month ago.


Klonipin and Advil PM?
Can you take these two togther, I take .5mg of klonopin 3 times a day Asked by Edmund Jaradat 1 month ago.

There is no interaction between advil pm and klonopin, so it is ok . Just remember that the advil PM is a drowsy medication and has a residual drowsiness meaning if you take it before bedtime you may still feel drowsy when you wake up so keep that in mind before doing any activities that require you to be alert Answered by Ivy Stezzi 1 month ago.

yes..you can..but it may make you drowsy..don,t drive or operate machinery...why don,t you try regular advil [ ibuprofen] during the day [ or your waking hour,s] then combine the 2 at bed time. I still wouldn't drive until your sure of the effect,s of the klonipin. this is a member of the benzodiazipine family of drug,s. they have a history of causing drowsiness.

Side effects of taking Advil PM and Adderal?

I recently started taking Adderal (maybe three weeks) and last night I took an Advil PM to help me fall asleep and while I was lying in bed, fully awake, I saw an extremely realistic but translucent-ish woman walk from the side of my bed all the way across my room and disappear into my closet. For a while I thought it was a ghost or some other kind of entity, but I was wondering if it could have been a hallucination? Just because I mixed two drugs together - though, I took the Adderol 10 hours before I had taken the Advil PM. I'm just wondering whether or not it's safe to take the two together if I'm going to have hallucinations of people in my room. I know this sounds stupid... Answered by Gaston Kiesling 1 month ago.

Advil PM is ibuprofen and diphenhydramine. It isn't particularly dangerous, and should at most cause sedation. Combining Adderall and Advil PM is not dangerous.. and your hallucination could be a minor psychosis from the stimulant itself.. but should not be a result of the mixing of the two medications. High levels of Diphenhydramine can cause hallucinations.. but at normal doses not so much. Adderall can cause psychosis in individuals who are sensitive to it, or take elevated doses. However, 10 hours past dosage, it should have been mostly ineffective. If you were sleep deprived .. that would be the most logical conclusion to what you experienced. The combination is certainly not going to harm you. Though there are paradoxical reactions to any medication.. so you could be hypersensitive to either medication and might want to rethink alternatives. Answered by Lyndia Gibala 1 month ago.

Kind of like multiple person disorder but a minor version and only in my head. So WTF is going on? Answered by Marylou Furuta 1 month ago.

Advil pm has diphenhydramine aka Benadryl. Benadryl is a antihistamine that also helps with anxiety. I can't take Benadryl for 3 reasons, I have these awful trippy dreams, I feel tired all day the next day and I feel really hungry for days after. If you can't sleep, there is a natural supplement called melatonin, it's what the brain produces to make you sleepy. I think that's better than taking Advil pm.

Why does Advil PM actually make me HYPER?!?
I mean its a night time medication for goodness sake..it makes my heart beat fast and I feel like I need to just take off running i thought it was suppose to make you SLEEP! Asked by Chauncey Kitchens 1 month ago.

Advil PM contains ibuprofen and diphenhydramine hydrochloride. Diphenhydramine HCl is an antihistamine and the active ingredient in Benadryl as well as the sleep-inducing drug in Tylenol PM. While diphenhydramine causes most people to fall asleep, a small part of the population experiences the opposite effect - insomnia. Since you are one of those people, keep an eye out for it in other medications in the future. It is also commonly used in many OTC cold medications, but there are other antihistamines (chlorpheniramine, brompheniramine, doxylamine succinate) available as well, so if you are buying night-time cold medication in the future look for one of those drugs instead of the diphenhydramine. Answered by Francis Walks 1 month ago.

Whenever I take an over-the-counter PM drug I come down with common cold-like symptoms. These OTC drugs affect many people differently. I would suggest talking to your doctor if you have a hard time sleeping. Advil PM contains pain relievers, and since you are not experiencing pain, you're making the wrong decision. Keep your doctor's pager number. If you have problems during the night, page h/er, s/he may call you in something that will help you sleep. In order to avoid an after-hours charge, you really need to make an appointment with the doctor during normal business hours. Your doctor is well equipped to help you with sleeping problems and you will be doing yourself a HUGE favor. Answered by Candi Washor 1 month ago.

it is not uncommon to have an opposite effect. throw it out, but note what the name of the specific med is that wires you so that you don't use it in the future. Answered by Tamesha Sunderland 1 month ago.

Unfortunately like most Americans I have trouble sleeping. I remember starting off on about one Unisom, than to two Unisom, than to them not really working. Switched to Advil PM from one, two, than nothing. The past month I have been taking two Advil PM and one Unisom to get the kick I need to fall asleep. I take them 5 days a week. I know this can not be good for you, but what type of side effects could I be seeing? It might be all in my head (literally) but i feel on the weekends when I don't take them I have a mild headache all weekend. Any advice would be great, and please keep wise-guy comments to yourself. Thanks-Jay Answered by Aide Sebren 1 month ago.

First of all, Advil Pm should only be taken if you have pain as well as sleeplessness, otherwise the painkiller (Ibuprofen) is unnecessary. You have built up a resistance to them and the only way back is to quit them, at least for a while. Otherwise it will only get worse, and too much can be very dangerous. First of all you need to look at what could be keeping you up in the first place. This can be anything from stress to caffeine. Honestly look at your lifestyle and see what you can do to make yourself more tired at bedtime as well as keep out things that could be keeping you awake. Things like sugar and caffeine are pretty easy, things like stress may take some working through. You need to get off them. They are meant for occasional use only and are never meant to be used in that kind of volume. For a few nights take a smaller dose (to wean yourself off a bit) and then stop using them altogether. Yes you'll have a headache for a few days and for about a week your sleep cycle will be screwed up, unfortunately this is necessary at this point. Make a point of not napping or sleeping in in the mornings, have a cup of warm milk (the warm lactose aids sleepiness) right before bed and some chamomile tea (good for relaxation) a few hours before. Try to meditate during this time as well. When you go to bed, make sure that there are no distracting things that can keep you awake, light is a big one. Anything noisy, pets, TVs, snoring spouses should be removed from the area. Turn off your phone if people have a habit of calling you late at night. It may take up to a few weeks to get this stuff out of your system and begin to normalize your rhythm so that you can get sleep without the pills but it will be worth it. You may want to consider taking the first few days of this off work and throw in the weekend so that you can get at least some time of the headaches and lack of sleep done with before dealing with people and work stress. If you are still having issues with sleep after all of this, talk to your doctor. You may actually require a sleep aid. If you need one stronger than the over the counters, he can write you a prescription for one that is stronger but safe to take at that level. Don't just take more of the OTC stuff. Good luck. Answered by Kermit Horseford 1 month ago.

Try another Chiropractor. Many people will see numerous medical doctors, yet only try one Chiropractor. Chiropractic is a highly skilled profession. As with any complex skill, some Chiropractors are better than others. Advil is a very dangerous drug and does NOT treat the CAUSE of your back pain. It is well documented to KILL over 16,500 Americans each year when taken properly (not the result of overdoses)! Best wishes and good luck. Answered by Garfield Kastein 1 month ago.
