Does Junior Strength Advil help reduce the pain of menstrual cramps?
Hello there! I'm in grade 7 and I got my period last year during the beginning of grade 7. My menstrual cramps were not that bad until today. It's been 8 hours and I'm in quite a lot of pain.

Hello there! I'm in grade 7 and I got my period last year during the beginning of grade 7. My menstrual cramps were not that bad until today. It's been 8 hours and I'm in quite a lot of pain. I told my mom which Advil to get but she didn't listen to me, instead she bought Junior Strength Advil recommended by an 18 year old. The thing is, the pain has not been reduced in the least bit. I am fairly angry and I've taken the right amount of dosage. I've given it quite some time to take affect however things have not changed. :( Now the question is, as asked in the title: Does Junior Strength Advil help reduce the pain of menstrual cramps? It would be great to know in the next few hours hopefully. However I do not mind if it takes longer as I suspect my cramps will eventually end by tomorrow, besides, I can take this information for the future. Also, if you have used such product before and it may or may not have worked, would you please recommend me products that you have used to relieve menstrual cramps? Thanks! Answered by Cassidy Borel 1 year ago.

Ironically, the Junior strength dosage for children UNDER 11 up to 95 pounds is up to 3-100 mg tablets. This is stronger than the regular Advil (200 mg). Unless you are under 11 and/or 95 pounds and under, your ma should have gotten you the regular one. Show her the package where it recommends the dosage ( all the info I mentioned should be on it ) and tell her you are still in agony. Answered by Aimee Kennemur 1 year ago.


What would be the equivalent to 200 mg of advil in jr. strength acetominophen?
What would be the equivalent to 200 mg of advil in jr. strength acetominophen? Asked by Dorthea Bolevice 1 year ago.

Advil is ibuprofen! It is nothing similar to acetaminophen. ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory which it is far superior to Tylenol for many things such as migraine, tooth ache, swelling, etc. With far less side effects than that of acetaminophen. It is safe to take 200-600 MG Ibuprofen every 4-6 hours depending on pain / where as you are not to take 500 mg Tylenol every 6 hours. Tylenol is terrible on your liver. Answered by Marcie Zaloudek 1 year ago.

how in the world did ur hamster get its mouth on the advil? you should force it out. try chopsticks or some other tools. don't hurt it though. and take it to a vet! Answered by Antwan Frietas 1 year ago.

This was 3 weeks ago & I was in severe pain for about 2 1/2 weeks, I took Advil for the pain & applyed heat when I could, made an appt. with my doctor only to find the pain went away so I canceled the appt. Now the pains back (not as bad), but for 2 days I've been experiencing nausia & vertigo whenever I turn my head so bad that I actualy barf. There is nothing wrong with my ears. Could this be causing the vertigo? Answered by Laurice Bergesen 1 year ago.

I was looking for an answer to my suspicion that advil has been causing my vertigo when I came across your question...my vertigo started about a year ago now and I have been trying to figure out if there is a common variable for each episode...what I have come up with is that each time I experienced vertigo I was taking advil . Like you, I also had alot of pain in my neck and shoulders and I was using advil alot just to get through the day. My vertigo let up when I started going to massage therapy to help with the kinks in my neck and shoulders...I had no more pain, stopped taking advil, and stopped having vertigo. I'm wondering now if it is related to the pain in my neck and shoulders or the advil? But when I first started having vertigo I was taking advil everyday for about 10 days because I had started taking a prescription of which a side effect was headaches.The experienced frightened me and I stop taking the medication (ranidine150-for stomach acid) and the headaches stopped. I was taking alot of advil at the time. I can't remember if I had sore neck and shoulders and so I can't rule that out.

I have also had problems with vertigo. I took Naprorsyn on two different occasions for a mild tennis strain and both times I had significant vertigo. I did not connect the two until I stopped taking it the second time and the vertigo disappeared in a day. Now, a couple years later I am taking Advil for another minor tennis ache and today it dawned on me that the dizziness I feel, actually sometimes wobbly, when I get up in the morning is due to the Advil that I take the night before for my shoulder pain.

It sounds like the flu to me, I mean the diarrhea part only makes sense that its the flu, would explain all the symptoms. And I think going to the doctor is really the best way to help him. Just be carefull what you let him eat or else it could make it wore. Answered by Rey Mermis 1 year ago.

Take him for a strep test. If it is strep, untreated, could lead to serious health problems. It is also possible that it is just a normal 'bug'. I highly doubt it is the flu. The flu (that we get a flu shot for) is a respiratory illness, not a gastrointestinal illness. Stomach flu is not really flu, just a regular virus. 99 degrees is fine, a slightly high temp is evidence that his body is fighting the illness. You do not need to bring his temp down to 98.6. If he is not showing signs of distress from the elevation, you do not even need to treat a fever under 100 degrees. Medicate for comfort only at this point. Not eating is also fine. With the diarrhea, the main concern is that he remains hydrated. As long as he is not vomiting, encourage fluids regularly. Pedialyte works great for this. They make ice pops that many kids enjoy. Good luck (and get the strep test!). You son was probably contagious before he started showing symptoms, so your other children may already be infected. Sorry, I have four children so I know how awful that thought is! Answered by Arlena Easker 1 year ago.

How much....?
How many mg/pills of Ibuprofen is considered an overdose. If the kid weighs 54.4 kg or 120 lbs? Asked by Georgianne Hybarger 1 year ago.

Toxic effects are less likely at levels of 100 mg/kg, but levels of 400 mg/kg are considered to be an overdose of ibuprofen. It has not been possible to determine a precise dose that is considered overdosing, because the risk varies from person to person depending on factors as age, weight, and individual medical history. For children, overdose may be at levels over 200 mg/kg. Patients who ingest ibuprofen at levels over 200 mg/kg should be taken to the hospital and given activated charcoal. Overdose symptoms typically present within 4 hours of ingestion. To reach the 200 mg/kg level, a child who weighs 54.4 kg would have to ingest ~55 200 mg ibuprofen tablets, ~28 400 mg ibuprofen tablets, ~218 50 mg (Children's Advil) tablets, or ~109 100 mg (Junior Strength Advil) tablets. Of course these levels are extremely high, and if a child ingests more than the recommended dosage, you should contact your doctor or poison control just to be safe. Answered by Bill Grippo 1 year ago.

adults and children 12 years and older • take 1 tablet or caplet (200 mg) every 4 to 6 hours while symptoms persist • if pain or fever does not respond to 1 tablet or caplet(200 mg), 2 tablets or caplets (400 mg) may be used • do not exceed 6 tablets or caplets in 24 hours, unless directed by a doctor children under 12 years • ask a doctor Answered by Damon Ramaudar 1 year ago.

i would say anything over 400mg or 2 pills is an overdose. although side effects may not manifest as an actual overdose. my rule is anything more than the recommended dose is an overdose. you do not have to take 20 tablets to have an overdose. If the reccomended dose is 2 tablets. taking 3 tablets is an overdose Answered by Valorie Merk 1 year ago.

I have a 1 1/2 year old female weimaraner. She is not fixed. Over the weekend my dog ate advil. We have no idea how many either. We rushed her to the emergency vet and they made her puke, but there was no signs of advil. They then gave her shots, drew her blood and fed her tons of this charcoal stuff. Her blood came back normal. They sent us home with two different pills. One for her gut to protect the lining and one for her kidneys. The vet told us that we have to watch for signs of kidney failure. She also is now peeing to bed while she sleeps and we don't know why. So I guess my questions are... Why is she peeing to bed? Is this a symptom of kidney failure? What are all the symptoms? What do we do now? Should we take her to our normal vet to have them check her too? For another opinion on it all? Is there a way they can test for kidney failure and know for sure? Please and Thank you! Any information on all of this would help. I am so overwhelmed and truly scared for my dog. She is my baby Answered by Verena Legard 1 year ago.

Depending on how much extra fluid (like a like a lactated ringer) was given to the dog, may or may not account (now) for her wetting her bed. It could be a symptom of kidney failure, if it continues. IMO, your regular vet should be advised what happened & should get the vet records from the Emergency vet & check your dog over, for any lingering or long-term issues from this event. (He will be treating your dog, if kidney failure comes to pass.) Advil is absolutely TOXIC and should never be anywhere a dog can get to it. Going to the ER & getting her stomach pumped, may have been what saved her. About Advil ingestion in pets: By: Peter F. Ullrich, Jr., MD Updated March 2, 2005 The Hazards of Ibuprofen (Advil) Over-the-counter pain relievers like Ibuprofen can have serious side effects for a dog. Over-the-counter pain relievers like Ibuprofen can poison a dog or cause serious or deadly complications such as: heart failure, liver failure, kidney disease, dehydration, diarrhea or urinary obstruction. Jill A. Richardson, Veterinary Poison Information Specialist for the ASPCA National Animal Poison Control Center states that "Less than one regular strength ibuprofen (200mg) could cause stomach ulcers in a 10lb dog, and about six could cause kidney failure." Never give a dog ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, Nuprin), naproxen (Aleve), or acetaminophen (Tylenol). Even a child's dose can be fatal. These pain relievers can cause severe, even fatal, stomach ulcers and kidney damage in dogs. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, drug poisoning is the most common small animal poison exposure. A dog's body does not utilize or tolerate Ibuprofen the same way a human body does, so the drug that relieves pain in humans can poison a dog or build to toxic levels in a dog. In one review of ASPCA Animal Poison Control data, ibuprofen was the most common drug involved in drug exposure to dogs and cats. Dogs were the animals most commonly poisoned by Ibuprofen, and most exposures were acute. Symptoms of Ibuprofen Toxicity in a Dog: Staggering, Increased thirst, Increased frequency of urination, Digestive upset, Bloody stool, Listlessness, Liver disease, Kidney disease, Seizures Induce vomiting if possible and seek immediate veterinary help. ######################################... I found a recent survey about household poisons conducted by Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) to be very interesting. The number one medical claim for pet poisonings in 2007 did not result from antifreeze ingestion or a chewing on a household plant. No, by far the number one poisoning type was owner-induced, and classified as "drug reactions" (3,455 claims). Most of these drug reaction poisonings were caused by pet owners giving their pets drugs intended for human use, such as over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol or Advil. Answered by Doris Mavro 1 year ago.

One of the first things you may notice is that your dog drinks and urinates more than usual and indicates her need to go outside to eliminate several times a day. If not allowed to do so, the dog may begin to have housetraining accidents in the house. These signs are due to the failure of the kidneys to concentrate the urine. This results in a large urine output over which the dog has no control, with subsequent dehydration and thirst. As kidney function declines, the dog retains ammonia, nitrogen, acids, and other chemical wastes in her blood and tissues. This is called uremia. The degree of uremia is determined by measuring serum blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, and electrolytes. Signs of uremia are apathy and depression, loss of appetite and weight, a dry haircoat, a brownish discoloration to the surface of the tongue, and an ammonialike odor to the breath. Dogs at this stage may urinate less than normal. Ulcers may arise in the mouth. With the nephrotic syndrome the dog develops ascites and edema. Vomiting, diarrhea, and gastrointestinal bleeding may occur. At the end stages of kidney failure, the dog falls into a coma. Answered by Claretta Larney 1 year ago.

Hello there! I'm in grade 7 and I got my period last year during the beginning of grade 7. My menstrual cramps were not that bad until today. It's been 8 hours and I'm in quite a lot of pain. I told my mom which Advil to get but she didn't listen to me, instead she bought Junior Strength Advil recommended by an 18 year old. The thing is, the pain has not been reduced in the least bit. I am fairly angry and I've taken the right amount of dosage. I've given it quite some time to take affect however things have not changed. :( Now the question is, as asked in the title: Does Junior Strength Advil help reduce the pain of menstrual cramps? It would be great to know in the next few hours hopefully. However I do not mind if it takes longer as I suspect my cramps will eventually end by tomorrow, besides, I can take this information for the future. Also, if you have used such product before and it may or may not have worked, would you please recommend me products that you have used to relieve menstrual cramps? Thanks! Answered by Mitsue Loughner 1 year ago.

Ironically, the Junior strength dosage for children UNDER 11 up to 95 pounds is up to 3-100 mg tablets. This is stronger than the regular Advil (200 mg). Unless you are under 11 and/or 95 pounds and under, your ma should have gotten you the regular one. Show her the package where it recommends the dosage ( all the info I mentioned should be on it ) and tell her you are still in agony. Answered by Isobel Alarcone 1 year ago.

What would be the equivalent to 200 mg of advil in jr. strength acetominophen? Asked by Rory Hunking 1 year ago.

Advil is ibuprofen! It is nothing similar to acetaminophen. ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory which it is far superior to Tylenol for many things such as migraine, tooth ache, swelling, etc. With far less side effects than that of acetaminophen. It is safe to take 200-600 MG Ibuprofen every 4-6 hours depending on pain / where as you are not to take 500 mg Tylenol every 6 hours. Tylenol is terrible on your liver.

With the diarrhea, the main concern is that he remains hydrated. As long as he is not vomiting, encourage fluids regularly. Pedialyte works great for this. They make ice pops that many kids enjoy. Good luck (and get the strep test!). You son was probably contagious before he started showing symptoms, so your other children may already be infected. Sorry, I have four children so I know how awful that thought is! Answered by Ute Rosenbloom 1 year ago.

the faster he gets on antibiotics the faster he wont be contagious. Id get him to an ER. Good luck. Answered by Zachery Cirilo 1 year ago.


How much....?
How many mg/pills of Ibuprofen is considered an overdose. If the kid weighs 54.4 kg or 120 lbs? Asked by Clarence Toribio 1 year ago.

Toxic effects are less likely at levels of 100 mg/kg, but levels of 400 mg/kg are considered to be an overdose of ibuprofen. It has not been possible to determine a precise dose that is considered overdosing, because the risk varies from person to person depending on factors as age, weight, and individual medical history. For children, overdose may be at levels over 200 mg/kg. Patients who ingest ibuprofen at levels over 200 mg/kg should be taken to the hospital and given activated charcoal. Overdose symptoms typically present within 4 hours of ingestion. To reach the 200 mg/kg level, a child who weighs 54.4 kg would have to ingest ~55 200 mg ibuprofen tablets, ~28 400 mg ibuprofen tablets, ~218 50 mg (Children's Advil) tablets, or ~109 100 mg (Junior Strength Advil) tablets. Of course these levels are extremely high, and if a child ingests more than the recommended dosage, you should contact your doctor or poison control just to be safe.

adults and children 12 years and older • take 1 tablet or caplet (200 mg) every 4 to 6 hours while symptoms persist • if pain or fever does not respond to 1 tablet or caplet(200 mg), 2 tablets or caplets (400 mg) may be used • do not exceed 6 tablets or caplets in 24 hours, unless directed by a doctor children under 12 years • ask a doctor Answered by Noella Cherubino 1 year ago.

i would say anything over 400mg or 2 pills is an overdose. although side effects may not manifest as an actual overdose. my rule is anything more than the recommended dose is an overdose. you do not have to take 20 tablets to have an overdose. If the reccomended dose is 2 tablets. taking 3 tablets is an overdose Answered by Lourie Garrod 1 year ago.


Does taking Advil after working out effect progression?
I was wondering, after you work out. does taking a pill that reduces the inflammation in your body reduce the amount of gained muscle while you are recovering? Asked by Noe Cantell 1 year ago.

I have a 1 1/2 year old female weimaraner. She is not fixed. Over the weekend my dog ate advil. We have no idea how many either. We rushed her to the emergency vet and they made her puke, but there was no signs of advil. They then gave her shots, drew her blood and fed her tons of this charcoal stuff. Her blood came back normal. They sent us home with two different pills. One for her gut to protect the lining and one for her kidneys. The vet told us that we have to watch for signs of kidney failure. She also is now peeing to bed while she sleeps and we don't know why. So I guess my questions are... Why is she peeing to bed? Is this a symptom of kidney failure? What are all the symptoms? What do we do now? Should we take her to our normal vet to have them check her too? For another opinion on it all? Is there a way they can test for kidney failure and know for sure? Please and Thank you! Any information on all of this would help. I am so overwhelmed and truly scared for my dog. She is my baby Answered by Ned Gregorich 1 year ago.

Depending on how much extra fluid (like a like a lactated ringer) was given to the dog, may or may not account (now) for her wetting her bed. It could be a symptom of kidney failure, if it continues. IMO, your regular vet should be advised what happened & should get the vet records from the Emergency vet & check your dog over, for any lingering or long-term issues from this event. (He will be treating your dog, if kidney failure comes to pass.) Advil is absolutely TOXIC and should never be anywhere a dog can get to it. Going to the ER & getting her stomach pumped, may have been what saved her. About Advil ingestion in pets: By: Peter F. Ullrich, Jr., MD Updated March 2, 2005 The Hazards of Ibuprofen (Advil) Over-the-counter pain relievers like Ibuprofen can have serious side effects for a dog. Over-the-counter pain relievers like Ibuprofen can poison a dog or cause serious or deadly complications such as: heart failure, liver failure, kidney disease, dehydration, diarrhea or urinary obstruction. Jill A. Richardson, Veterinary Poison Information Specialist for the ASPCA National Animal Poison Control Center states that "Less than one regular strength ibuprofen (200mg) could cause stomach ulcers in a 10lb dog, and about six could cause kidney failure." Never give a dog ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, Nuprin), naproxen (Aleve), or acetaminophen (Tylenol). Even a child's dose can be fatal. These pain relievers can cause severe, even fatal, stomach ulcers and kidney damage in dogs. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, drug poisoning is the most common small animal poison exposure. A dog's body does not utilize or tolerate Ibuprofen the same way a human body does, so the drug that relieves pain in humans can poison a dog or build to toxic levels in a dog. In one review of ASPCA Animal Poison Control data, ibuprofen was the most common drug involved in drug exposure to dogs and cats. Dogs were the animals most commonly poisoned by Ibuprofen, and most exposures were acute. Symptoms of Ibuprofen Toxicity in a Dog: Staggering, Increased thirst, Increased frequency of urination, Digestive upset, Bloody stool, Listlessness, Liver disease, Kidney disease, Seizures Induce vomiting if possible and seek immediate veterinary help. ######################################... I found a recent survey about household poisons conducted by Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) to be very interesting. The number one medical claim for pet poisonings in 2007 did not result from antifreeze ingestion or a chewing on a household plant. No, by far the number one poisoning type was owner-induced, and classified as "drug reactions" (3,455 claims). Most of these drug reaction poisonings were caused by pet owners giving their pets drugs intended for human use, such as over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol or Advil. Answered by Bertram Fontaine 1 year ago.

One of the first things you may notice is that your dog drinks and urinates more than usual and indicates her need to go outside to eliminate several times a day. If not allowed to do so, the dog may begin to have housetraining accidents in the house. These signs are due to the failure of the kidneys to concentrate the urine. This results in a large urine output over which the dog has no control, with subsequent dehydration and thirst. As kidney function declines, the dog retains ammonia, nitrogen, acids, and other chemical wastes in her blood and tissues. This is called uremia. The degree of uremia is determined by measuring serum blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, and electrolytes. Signs of uremia are apathy and depression, loss of appetite and weight, a dry haircoat, a brownish discoloration to the surface of the tongue, and an ammonialike odor to the breath. Dogs at this stage may urinate less than normal. Ulcers may arise in the mouth. With the nephrotic syndrome the dog develops ascites and edema. Vomiting, diarrhea, and gastrointestinal bleeding may occur. At the end stages of kidney failure, the dog falls into a coma. Answered by Dewayne Fithian 1 year ago.
