How to take Advil Liqui-Gels???
I was wondering, how should I take Advil Liqui-gels? Do i just swallow it with water, or chew it up in my mouth first? I am kinda cautious about using them, as I have always had a phobia about pills.
Thanks for the help. I'm just gonna wait for my headache to subside...can't swallow it. lol.

  just place in the back of your mouth, and swallow with some water. Don't chew it, it doesn't taste very good, and it will be hard to get that taste out of your mouth.

Will anything happen to a Ritalin PillS if I store them in a box of advil liqui gels?
Does it have to be in one of these clear orange pill boxes because this is a problem, i don't have one so I put it in a box of advil liqui gels. I'm just worried will the pills melt or get damaged in any way?

  Nothing provided the Advil gels don't break,if they do thy can dissolve the Ritalin.Best put them in the original container, but certainly don't mix them with liquid medications

  I don't think anything will happen to the Ritalin.
The problem is that someone could take the Ritalin thinking it's the Advil. I have quite a few empty pill bottles. If I lived near you I would let you have a few. Try to keep that bottle in a safe place so nobody will make a mistake. I hope you are doing OK. Good Luck.

  Yes, Advil is ibuprofen and the ingredient in Nyquil is acetaminophen,
plus the medicines for cough, and sneezing and all that.My only warning is not to take it then try to drive or anything like that. I would take it lay back with some warm soup or tea and relax.....
Sorry you are sick!

What amount of consumption of Advil Liqui-Gels would constitute an serious overdose?
I have a fever, nausea and am quite miserable. I have taken a more heavy and regular amount of Advil Liqui-Gels than recommended on the box. How much would constitute a -serious- overdose?

  I have inflammatory arthritis so I take a medication which is the same chemical structure as Advil (Ibuprofen). From my experience, the maximum dosage you should be taking, with the authority of a doctor, is 600mg every 4 hours at the soonest, and avoid taking it until you need it if possible!

How do I take Advil Liqui-Gels?
Do I take Advil Liqui- Gels with water, and do they really help with cramps? Someone suggested that I take them for cramps.
Do I just take 1?

Is it alright to open up an Advil Liqui-Gel and put it in a drink?
I can't take pills, especially ones as big as Liqui-gels for migraines and I need one really bad. Is it okay to put some in some flat pepsi and take it that way?

  here's a thought...

why not try actually reading the label on a box of advil to figure out the active ingredients, and then looking up that active ingredient online?

you don't want people to judge you, but, you expect others to just hand you the information you need for a science project without saying a word about WHY you are demanding the information, or passing judgment on you for asking the question?

Wow... thanks for the laugh...

Sorry Bucko, you'll have to do your own leg work on this one.

get off the counch and DO SOMETHING for yourself for a change.

I found a big yellow capusl labled apap 500 in with a bunch of advil liqui-gels, what is that?
No I FOUND this pill (the big yellow one) in WITH the regular translucent aqua-marine gel caps. You all think the yellow pill is hydro-condine?

  this is what wikipedia says:
The words acetaminophen and paracetamol come from the chemical names for the compound: para-acetylaminophenol and para-acetylaminophenol. The brand name Tylenol also derives from this name: para-acetylaminophenol. In some contexts, it is shortened to APAP, for N-acetyl-para-aminophenol.

so it's very likely paracetamol. i'd recommend throwing out pills that you don't know for sure.

Are Advil brands different in their formula?
I know Advil and Ibuprofen are the same thing. However, I've taken the same dosage of Ibuprofen as I would Advil and it had no effect. I have also done the same with Advil Liquid Gels and they too had no effect. Brown Advil tablets usually do the trick. Is there any particular reason why brown Advil only works?

PS. Please don't suggest to take Tylenol instead. It too does absolutely nothing.

Strong medication for migraines?
I suffer from chronic migraines, but haven't really gotten anything prescribed to me because my mother has migraines as well. Somehow, she doesn't care if I have them or not. Anyways, I've been swallowing all different types of Advil over the past few days (Liqui-Gels, Extra Strength, regular...etc) and nothing has worked.

I have to be able to play tennis in about an hour and a half. I play in an academy, so we have to be alert, focused, and aggressive.

I'm wondering if zolmitriptan (Zomig) works because I have it in my house. Also, can you mix it with energy drinks because I got barely any sleep last night?

Thanks.

  DO NOT take Zomig unless it was prescribed for you. Zomig is a triptan. They are known to have different effects on different people. Even though I am healthy with NO heart problems triptan stopped my heart. If I hadn't been in the emergency room when they gave it too me I would be dead!
You need to be seen by a good doctor for your migraines. Your mom obviously gets help or there would not be Zomig in your house. Insist that you see a doctor soon! The only thing I can suggest now is to drink a coke. The coke syrup may help with any nausea that often comes with a migraine and the caffeine will help the other pills, ibuprofen etc. work better.
Good Luck.

  Zomig works for some people, I had it in the nose spray form....eww....it's horrible and I don't recommend it. I can't remember trying it in a pill form. They have whats called MaxAlt. It's a melt away tablet and it usually works in a half hour. I personally think the imitrex shots work the best, or at least they do for me. I've tried it in a pill form and that didn't work and I also have tried the nose spray of it too, it's Absolutely discusting when it's running down the back of your throat, I mean come on your already sick to your stomach with the migraine nyway, ya know. For bad headaches (before i break out the shot) I take 3 ex strength excedrin and 2 ex strength tylenol...you can take it with a pop a lot of the time caffeine helps....then lay down for a half hour. If that doesn't work you need something stronger. With the excedrin and tylenol, you can't wait till you have a full blown out mmigraine take it when you start to get a headache. Good Luck!!

Advil Liquid Gels vs. Midol for Period?
I have always taken 2-3 Advil (or ibuprofen) every 4-5 hours when I am having my period. I get really bad cramps (so bad I get sick to my stomach and throw up on occasion). This time around I've got really bad bloating, too. My friend is getting married tomorrow and I need to get rid of the bloating.

Advil seems to help a little with it, but more with the cramps. How does Midol work in relation to Advil for Cramps and Bloating? I need the strong pain killer, but need more bloat killer (lol). Any help would be appreciated to anything else I can do.

Thank you!

  Well I use Advil, but I don't get that bloating. Never have. I'm a teen so I don't really want to buy some midol because we don't have any in the house.

I would say that your best would have to be Midol because it is especially made for period pains, cramps, bloating. It works very effectively. Sometimes Advil doesn't work for me.

Congrats for your friend. I wish her the best of luck on her big day!

  You can get addicted to sleeping pills. I know this because I used to take tylenol pm at night sometimes to help me sleep but after a while you need it to even be able to fall asleep and it sucks not being able to fall asleep.

Possible overdose, with questions a day later?
Well, yesterday I had taken 5 Advil liqui-gels for a migraine (not a blind dosage, I have been taking advil for a long while, dr said 4 was ok, and I had previously taken many more than that without any adverse affects, so I figured I was in the clear), but then 2 hours later took some prescription pain pills (mostly just to put me to sleep). It was a stupid mistake, by that time I had completely forgotten I had taken any advil. Anyway, they were 2 Darvocet100. Didn't help me sleep any, wound up staying up too late, but woke up 2 hours after I'd fallen asleep, about 9 hours after ingesting the darvocet, and I was getting bad hot/cold flashes and having really weird dreams, but I wasn't asleep for them...I would say hallucinations, but that sounds extreme. Also had a splitting headache the whole next day, and started throwing up a couple hours after I had woken up. I was then nauseous the next day, and all of today as well. Also have been having awful digestive issues along with the nausea. Diarrhea and that fun stuff.

And here is where I know I drop even further down the IQ chart:

Went to a friend's house the day after the possible overdose incident, for a drinking party. Noticed some muscle pain, like lactic acid from exercising, but ya'know without the actual muscle work involved. Anyway, I googled that and found that dehydration can cause it (which is caused by alcohol), so that's not any huge concern of mine, just throwing it in for information's sake. Been feeling really sleepy lately too, can easily sleep for 18 hours a day, and still be tired upon waking (and not for lack of waking up. That's 18 hours despite people trying to wake me up, and the 14 alarms I set every night for myself. I don't sleep 18 hrs often, I usually drag myself out of bed after the 12 hr mark. But still, always exhausted.) But for the record, I don't believe the tiredness is due to any pill issues, and it has been lingering for quite a while now, months even. Again, for information's sake.

Just wondering if anyone can offer insight on whether or not this could be an overdose, or bad combination, or just any help you would be able to provide. And I do not need any lectures on my awful, awful pill habits and all that jazz. Drinking is a very rare occassion too, so no prolonged drinking complications are a possibility.

Please and thank you!

  It's possible that your muscle pain has been caused by extra tension that was diminished or went previously unnoticed because of the over-the-counter/painkiller use.

The hot flashes, chills and weird dreams are all common symptoms of withdrawal. It's possible that this is what you experienced.

You're tiredness and high level of fatigue/exhaustion could be totally unrelated or hand-in-hand. You might also want to check psychological disorders (such as depression) which are causing your restlessness (which is what I'm assuming you have since you took some pills to go to sleep), as well as your tiredness.

How often are you taking "downers" to rest? if it's often, your low energy could be due to a side effect of sleeping pills/muscle relaxers etc...called "morning sedation." It simply means that under the influence of these medications, once the user rises, or is awakened, they experience of marked sleepiness and fatigue caused by the body remaining in a prolog used sleep mode even when it's awake. Meaning your body isn't fully awake even after being out of bed. This can last anywhere from 20 mins to 1 1/2hrs+

If you find you are tired, frequently yawning throughout the day, and possess lack of interest in activities, you would want to refer back to my earlier suggestion of depression or even a glandular or neurological issue.

Menstrual Cramps??
This is kinda embarassing, but when i get my period i get EXTREMELY bad cramps, and once i even had to stay home from school because of it. I've tried Midol and it didn't work at all. I usually take Advil liquid gels, but they recently stopped working and I don't know what to do. Should i go to the doctor to get medicine? By the way, I'm only a teenager.

  Yes you should. I had the same problem for many years and my mom kept insisting that it was normal. Then I finally went to the doctor and they put me on birth control and now I have no problem at all. Tell your mom that you want to go. Birth control is the first method they try and it works wonders.

What is the maximum mg of Unisom Sleepgels that I can take in one dose?
I have insomia and I took the regular dose of 50 mg (1 soft-gels) and I did not go to sleep. I want to up the dosage up to 100 mg (2 soft-gels) so I can get some sleep; however, I also want to wake up in the morning. So, what is the max mg that is reasonable without killing myself and/or is 100 mg acceptable?

  Read the label, that's what it's there for. Definitely do not take more than 3 doses per day. Do not use for more than 2 weeks. If you take sleeping pills often, you should probably see a doctor or search for other types of remedies like self-hypnosis or guided imagery.

I'm having the WORST menstrual cramps right now! Any suggestions?? Please help!?
I'm getting ready to start my period on Wednesday and I always cramp a little a couple days before up til that point. I'm on the pill so it's typically not that bad, but it started yesterday. It has gradually gotten worse and at this point the pain is horrible. I was in tears a little bit ago. Thing is, I have taken Advil liquid gels (I'm allergic to aspirin so I can't have midol). I tried a hot shower, and I have a heating pad on my stomach...

  Hot showers do help but what i use is something u can buy at a store. Its likeeee an icy hot patch. They're in the same isle but its used for cramps. It gives you 8 hours of heat and helps A LOTTTTT. Therapudic i believe makes it. I hope it helps!

Poll for GIRLS: What are your reliefs from menstral cramps ect?
I use Midol PM because they usually get bad the 1st few days when I go to bed esp since it usually starts at like 2AM while I am sleeping. Then I have Midol liquid gels because gels are easier for me to take.

Does the heating pad work?
Midol or Pamprin?
Is it bad to mix the two midol and pamprin?
I already decided if I take pamprin I'd get the max one in the pink box becuase I get headaches, irritability, cramps, and fatigue.

I am 19 years old.

  Something that has been really helpful, but it is only temporary (or as temporary as the person lets it be) is recieving a lower back rub.
My boyfriend is really good to me when he knows I'm cramping, and it helps A LOT when he rubs my lower back - the pain goes away COMPLETELY, but only until he stops the rubbing.

I don't see how this would be too helpful at 2AM, but if you're having a friend sleepover and/or if you have a boyfriend and are with him at those times, maybe you can get them to give you a back rub?
(I don't like flooding body with medication, so I usually resort to something external rather than internal).

Also, the heating pad will work, and have similar effects to a hot bath (which REALLY works)!

Good luck!

Is it safe to take Midol and Advil PM both?
I have insomnia badly so I want to take Advil PM as per usual, but I also have Niagara falls flowing from my vagina, so I took just Midol.

Is it okay to take the Advil PM as well?

  Yes it's okay to take Advil PM and Midol together. Advil's active ingredient is ibuprofen (Motrin) whereas Midol's active ingredient is acetaminophen (Tylenol). I recommend that you take them at least 1/2 hour apart though so it's not too hard on your liver.

Is it safe to mix Advil cold with Excedrin?
I took some advil cold and it helped the sinus pressure and runny nose but I still have a killer headache. The active ingredients in Advil are ibuprofen and pseudoephedrine and in excedrin acetaminophen, aspirin and caffeine. I can't find any helpful articles on google. Thanks.

  It is usually not the best option to mix and match medicines like that. I would wait to take the Excedrin until the cold medicine has worn off, just to be safe. There's just too many different ingredients here to make a safe cocktail.

If you really need relief, you could call up a pharmacist and try asking them what else you could try, or how long to wait.

Why do I get better sleep when I take Advil PM?
I have muscle tension in my back and found I have difficulty getting proper sleep. When I take Advil PM I feel rested and remember some of my dreams. I have now taken Advil PM twice and feel better. Why is this? I think something is wrong with me. I can't sleep well.

  It is a known fact that you cannot sleep well when you are tense. You have to be somewhat relaxed to get a good nights rest and when you are feeling some sort of discomfort you tend to be awake in a sense. It's like having someone shaking you to wake you. Or try staying asleep in a car on a very bumpy road. You can't do it.
Advil tends to relax your muscles so you can relax and it may also have some form of medication to help make you drowsy.
Many people have these problems , you are not alone.
There are also some natural things you can do to help with this dilemma
