Advil cold and sinus and xanax?
I take xanax for panic disorder. I've got a cold going on-stuffy nose, cough, sinus pressure. I was wondering if xanax and advil cold and sinus is a bad combination? Thanks!

  That should be no problem, but it wouldn't hurt to call any pharmacist. Just look up "Pharmacies" in the Yellow Pages if you need a 24-hour pharmacy. :)

Will it be bad if I take 8 advil cold and sinus instead of 6 in a 24 hour period?
Help. Advil Cold and sinus is only effective for me if I take 2. Right now I have the most miserable cold, and I can't sleep at night now. But I have already taken 6 in the last 24 hours. (The previous day I might have taken more than 6 in 24.... so would it be bad if I did it again?)

  probably not a huge abuse, in terms of toxicity, but a small abuse. the liver has to process the ibuprofen, and filter out the solids. over time, it could cause renal problems and or liver damage. if you only do it a couple of times, chances are, you'll be fine and not suffer overly much.
just to be safe, why not just according to directions, though? good luck.

Can I drink alcohol after taking advil cold and sinus?
Ive had a cold for a few days. Today I took advil cold and sinus (day) so I could go out for my friends birthday. We are going out and everyone will be drinking. I was wondering if it will be ok to drink or if I should just stick to water.

* rash
* blisters
and stomach bleeding.
I really want to take this but i don't want any of these side affects to happen..
Thank you!

  None of those will happen to you. That just happens to random freaks. The kind of people who take tylenol and wind up in the emergency room. Take the Advil and relax.

Best way to get rid of sinus pain/headache FAST?
I already irrigated my sinuses this morning. I have taken zyrtec and used rhinocort twice already. I also used optivar eyedrops. I've been drinking a lot of water. It feels like my head is going to explode. The only other things I have on me are benadryl, aleve and pamprin. I can't fall asleep, so I don't know about the benadryl. Maybe the aleve for the temple pain?

Is it ok to take advil cold and sinus with XYZAL (a 24 hour allergy medicine)?
I just took a pill of XYZAL for allergies and to try to help my stuffiness. It has not helped my stuffed nose at all, and it is supposed to work / last for 24 hours. Is it ok to mix this with and take advil cold and sinus?

Is it ok to take Advil Cold & Sinus as well as NyQuil? ?
I've been suffering from some illness for about a week and it seems to be starting to break up. I've been taking the Advil Cold and Sinus to keep the pressure out of my sinuses. However, it's a decongestant. NyQuil is an expectorant, so I'm hoping to take it as well and help the infection purge itself.

  My husband uses this to keep from getting bronchitis when he gets a sinus infection, and I use it to cure sinus infections. THere are many kinds of bacteria that live in the sinuses, and this gets rid of all the bad ones!.This is the only thing that really helped me --- my Dr. told me about a sinus wash that will kill bacteria.
you need

distilled water
sea salt
liquid chlorophyll and colloidal silver from the health food store.
in a glass mix 1/4 cup water with a pinch of salt and heat to body temperature.
add 5 drops each silver and chlorophyll and mix.
using a large dropper (like one used for infant medication) drop 2 full droppersfull into one side of the nose while laying down.
Turn the head and let it drain out the other nostril. Be sure to have paper towels handy. or just use a neti pot, I like this better.
The silver kills the bacteria and there are several hundred kind that can live in the sinus cavities and anti biotics don't get rid of them all.
Do this twice a day for a week, mixing up the mixture fresh each time.
Then do it once a week for maintenance.
There is nothing in this that will hurt you, and it cured me.
I do not have to take claritin, or antibiotics anymore.
best wishes

Can I take DayQuil and Advil Cold and Sinus relief together?
I have to go to school today but I feel like shi*. I already took the little pill for Advil cold and sinus relief but I'm holding off on the DayQuil. I'm sure it won't kill me, Ahaha, I'm just making sure its OK to do. (: thanks for everything, and no smarta$$ answers.

Which is better? Allegra-D or Advil sinus?
For all you allergy sufferers out there do you find that taking Advil cold and sinus works better than Allegra D or Claritin D or even zyrtec D? None of these work for me, and my sinuses are pretty bad during allergy season, but that is the only part that bothers me so all I need is a good decongestant and Allegra zyrtec or claritin dont seem to do the trick, so i was wondering if advil cold and sinus works better?

How long does the common cold usually last for?
I've had the common cold since tuesday, and i've been treating it pretty good. I've been getting a lot of rest, drinking A LOT of organic ginger & honey tea, and juice boxes (that have 100% vitamin c.) Im also blowing my nose often, and I've been taking Tylenol for cold. My sinus has also cleared quite a bit too. How much longer to do you think it will be till my cold is gone? Do you think it'll be gone by tommorow? Do you have any tips to treat it?

  The average length of the common cold is 9 days. Of course that all depends on the individual could be longer or shorter. You've been treating it well but if you have any questions or want some more help on treatment you can visit: http://www.familyresource.com/health/cold-and-flu-remedies/conquering-the-common-cold or contact your doctor.

Would swallowing Advil Cold and Sinus whole make it work?
I have a phobia of swallowing pills. It's always been that way....

Anyway, I always chew regular Tylenol and it still works perfectly. However, I recently purchased advil cold an sinus and chewed it *slightly*, and it didn't help me AT ALL. Not even one bit of a difference. I had taken 2 of them

Would swallowing it whole make it work? Make it have an effect on me?

  Yes that is what it is meant for (to swallow whole). It may take longer to get into your system though.

Correction: Chewing it shouldn't make it less potent. If you are sick and taking meds for it, sometimes it just doesn't feel like ANYTHING will work. Drink plenty of fluids and go to bed.

How long should I wait to take Aleve after taking Advil? How many Aleve can I take?
Both of my legs are in a lot of pain from exercising (and lack of preparation before the exercises). Two hours ago I took two advil, which have not helped. The aleve bottle says for the first dose (I've never taken it before), you can take two pills within the first hour. Is it safe for me to take two pills? When can I take these two pills or just one?

  how old are you, whats your weight, and how many mg are in each pill ? these can play a factor. you can probably take 2 on 4 hour intervals of the 2 different pain killers.

aleve.>4hours> advil >4hours> aleve.

i would ask a doctor before trying though

How Long Does the Allergic Reaction to Aleve Last?
I took Aleve for 5 days and I stopped taking it 10 days ago. I developed itching hands and feet and swollen lips, which I understand is a possible allergic reaction to Aleve. My doctor can't tell me how long it will last. I am controlling the symptoms with Benedryl, but this makes me very sleepy. How long will this last?

Can antibiotics make your sinus infection worse?
Ive been using antiobiotics for sinus infection and a nasal spray (beconase) for my hayfever.
A day after i used both, i hade a huge heada he, my nose hurt when i blew it, had a sore throat. Symptoms of a bad fever/cold.
Is this cause of spray or antiobiotics

  Sometimes when an infection is killed off, it will leave behind raw, damaged skin that hurts worse until the body carries the dead bacteria and toxins away and it can start to heal. Your body absorbing the dead bacteria and toxins could also give you a headache or flu-like symptoms. This would be a mild Herx reaction. Could just be the pressure in your sinuses changing that's giving you a headache.

How much aleve and advil can I take on the same day?
I have mono witch has led to tonsilitus and the pain is horrible. I have taken 1200 mg of advil throughout the day and my last dose was 5 hours ago. I want something that will last longer throughout the night, so how many mgs of aleve (naproxen) would be safe to take?

What happens if you take aleve every day for a month?

  The Aleve is fine to take every day for a month, even longer, so long as you stay within the dose on the bottle. Aleve is an anti-inflammatory that used to be prescribed as a prescription for periods well over one month for joint and back injuries, and for arthritis. It has a package insert that describes all the side effects, the ones most people actually experience are bleeding tendency, and rebound headaches. A rebound headache is one you get because you STOPPED taking an anti-inflammatory, and a cup of caffeinated tea usually gets rid of it.

The package says not to exceed one week without speaking to your doctor. That is not because of the *Aleve*, it is because if you are in enough pain to take it every day for more than a week, you may have a problem you should be seeing a doctor about... And maybe you should.

Back pain is sometimes not to hard to fix with the right exercise or activity, like walking, swimming or yoga, a little physical therapy, and if your problem is not inflammation, but something like muscle spasm, you are suffering needlessly. On the other hand some back pain is not easily treated, and when you DO go to the doctor, if that is likely true for you, he will likely tell you to take Aleve for a month or two and see if that does it for you :)

What does the cold have to do with getting a cold?
The common cold is caused by viruses, particularly rhinovirus. But, then how come if ur outside in the winter for too long, or get cold it makes you sick/get a cold? I know it happens, but i just don't know why it happens. what's the relationship between being cold and a cold?
Like when you're outside playing in the snow for a few hours, then u come inside and ur feet are all cold. and then ur nose starts dripping, then u start coughing, and tats how it all starts. so there MUST be some kind of relationship.

  Because the human body operates at an optimal temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Whenever the body temperature is lower than this, the immune system becomes weak, some white blood cells die, and bacteria/viruses have an easier time in taking over your system- thus getting you sick.

Also, the easiest way to lower your body temperature is (voila) to go outside in the cold air, which makes you colder as well, since the temperature in the air is loewr than the temperature in your body.

Lastly, the reason length has to do with it is because for a time, your clothing keeps a good amount of heat trapped inside. But after awhile, your body cannot heat itself/the clothes fast enough to keep warm. Once this happens, you get sick even MORE fast, since not only are you cold, but your body has wasted alot of energy in keeping you warm. So the longer you are in the cold, the colder you get, and the weaker your body gets, and the easier it is to catch a virus/bacteria/infection.

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.

  To All people: American Girl is telling the truth. I've included links to prove it. (although I'm not totally positive that all those brands contain PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE).

I think that's crazy! But then again, that's how we learned in the past. Produce a product, sell it on the market, then 20 years down the road when health hazards start appearing in large numbers, we realize it's not so healthy.
