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?
Do they have to be in one of these clear orange pill boxes because this is a problem, i don't have one so I put them in a box of advil liqui gels. I'm just worried will the pills melt or get damaged in any way?

  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.

  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

  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.....

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.

  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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

  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.

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 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

Is it okay to take Actifed Cold and Allergy with Advil Cold and Sinus?
Actifed C&A does not contain Pseudoephedrine. It's Chlorpheniramine maleate and phenylephrine HCl, which is an antihistamine and a nasal decongestant, respectively. I read somewhere that this is the new reformulated Actifed (I'm guessing that it used to contain Pseudoephedrine).

Advil C&S --> Ibuprofen and Pseudoephedrine

I took Advil C&S around 10 P.M. and it should be taken every 4-6 hours. After 4 hours (2 A.M.), can I start taking Actifed? I've been taking Advil C&S every 4 hours since 10 P.M. last night, so I've been on it for a whole day. I'd like to switch to Actifed. The Advil took care of my muscle aches, but my nose is running like a waterfall. I'm plugging up my nostrils with tissue balls. The post-nasal drip is giving me a sore throat.

Also, since the Actifed does not contain Pseudoephedrine, would it have been okay to take them at the same time if I really had to? I was thinking that it wouldn't be such a good idea because both of them contain nasal decongestants, except one is phenylephrine HCl and the other is Pseudoephedrine.

Thanks in advance!

No other pills for high blood pressure, beta blockers, arrythmia, anxiety or tranquilizers. You may get a little temporary prostate trouble, enlarged, or in an extreme case, bladder infection.

  The ingredient in Advil PM that makes you sleep is benedryl. It is an allergy medicine. You can probably buy that at any age for a lot cheaper than Advil. But, you will become dependent on it, maybe even addicted to it.

What is the difference between "Children's Motrin" and "Children's Advil"?
When my children have had a fever the "Children's Motrin" very rarely brings down the fever, and I need to piggy back it with Tylenol. When I use the "Children's Advil" the fever starts to break in 20 min. with no Tylenol. They both are a form of Ibuprofen with the same mls.
Here where we are it is very hard to find the "Children's Advil" in any of the pharmacies or stores.

  You are correct that Advil and Motrin are the same product, just different brands of the generic medicine ibuprofin. However, probably the same as with children’s Tylenol (acetominophen), there are different concentration in different preparations so that dosages are completely different depending on if you are using drops, suspensions, elixir or tablets. The most accurate way to determine the correct dose is by the milligrams, not by liquid measure such as teaspoon unless you are sure of the milligram content in the amount and type of liquid you are using.

But you sound well versed in the use of the medication and likely are giving the correct dose. So the next possibility is that separate episodes of illnes create different levels of illness and symptoms and each responds differently to medication and other forms of treating the illness. So an ear infection may respond differently to the medicine than the flu. There are other variables too, such as how well hydrated the child is, what other symptoms are present that the body is fighting, the length of time the symptoms have been present before the med is given, the level of immunity, etc.

You sound like an observant, attentive parent. Hope you all stay healthy!

Is taking advil for elongated periods of time bad for you and how?
I am a 15 year old girl and I have tendonitis in my wrist. I am planning on taking one does of for advil 5 days a week for about 2 months until my tennis season is over. Will this harm my body in any way?

  We tend to see advil as a bit of a joke because it's easily available, and tastes like candy.

You should know that any medication that you take passes through your liver.

This doesn't sound excessive... but it would be better if it was prescribed by a doctor especially since you're young. If you're injured, maybe a break from the sport is what you need.

At least go see a doc about this. He'll let you know.

In fact, call a helpline (Like here in Quebec, we have Info Sante... run from our local clinics. They take phone calls to answer health related questions)

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?

  First of all I don't think you should keep it in the fridge.Check with a pharmacy on that,your the first person I've ever heard of who keeps aspirin in the fridge. I and a several other people I know take 4 Advil ,Aleve or extra strength Tylenol etc. all the time and it won't kill you.But depending on how often you do it,it will eventually irritate your stomach.

  Liquids are better absorbed by the body. Pills usually have fillers to make them hard that make the pill not as easily absorbed by the body. A good test is to drop the pill in a cup of water for 15 minutes, if it doesn't dissolve, use a pill crusher when you take the pill in the future and add the powder to half a cup to a cup of water so it will more easily be absorbed by the body.

  The general rule of thumb is around 30 minutes to start working, but I really hope you're not serious about taking 21 pills.
If you DID take 21 pills, you need to get to the ER and get your stomach pumped... it might not kill you right away, but severe liver damage that it could cause can take some time to slowly (and painfully) kill you.
Good luck!

  If you take it too often, yes. (every day about 1200 mg)

You get a big chance of developing stomach ulcers when you do.
People who are taking these kind of drugs often are most of the times given an extra prescription of omeprazol. That's a drug that regulate the production of acid in your stomach.
That protects them for having that side effect.

Also, the chance of getting kidney/liver dysfunction is bigger.

Paracetamol doesn't have those side effects, so it is safer to take that.

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.

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.

  I'm a Doctor, yes it is perfectly fine to take 1 advil, no more. It is important to understand that the more you drink the more this will add to the effects of any drug taken. So make sure you're not to drunk that any kind of overdose will happen.

So yes go ahead take 1 tablet, unless you've used any drugs like thc, Lsd, Xtc, or any perscription drugs, if so do not take advil unless you know for sure all you had was a small amount to drink.

Advil an Drinking has the ability to stop you're heart during sleep, so stay up for awhile and make sure you feel ok.

what is naproxen sodium, and can i mix it with other pain relievers?
i have a killer toothache.... hurts so much i'm having a hard time opening my eyes... which makes driving difficult and my dentist told me to take 2 tylenol and 2 advil every 4 hours.... now i found some ibuprofen, so that covers the advil... but i don't have any acetaminophen, but i did find some naproxen sodium...
i just don't want to give myself liver failure or something.
Lauren

  Naproxen sodium (Aleve) is excellent for toothache. When you do combinations of pain relievers for acute pain (like toothache), you hit different pain receptors and have a better chance of reducing the discomfort.

First of all - it is safe to take 800 mg of ibuprofen at a time up to 3 times a day for a daily total of 2400 mg. This is the same dose as the prescription strength motrin. If you increase it to this dose, you will definitely feel better. Ibuprofen is primarily excreted by the kidneys.

You can still add the Tylenol if you need to after 2 hours, but it doesn't have anti-inflammatory properties.

If you take 2 of the over the counter Aleve (which is roughly the same as the prescription dose of Anaprox), DON'T repeat it every four hours. This medication is longer lasting, so you can only take it every twelve hours.

Please make sure you eat something before taking the higher doses of anti-inflammatories - they tend to tear up an empty stomach.

Good luck, and hope you feel better!

How do I manage severe pain - endometriosis, PCOS?
I usually take a combination of vicoprofen and Meclomen, which seems to work. However, I moved and have run out of medication. I don't have a doctor I can see - new patient appointmens aren't available until August. I have debilitating pain - any suggestions on how to handle it until I can see a doc? I've tried everything from hot baths to exercise, - I've done everything I can think of. Advil, Tylenol, Aleve, etc don't work at all. I need something that will stop pain for longer than 5 minutes. Any suggestions?
At this point I would consider finding a doctor that open prescribes just to get the medicine I need - I know that's wrong, but there are days when I can't even get out of bed in the morning and it's worse at night.
I've tried taking 4 advil every 4 hours, it upsets my stomach but doesn't even touch the pain. I've tried 2 advil and an aleve at the same time - not much help either. I've tried every combination of OTC pain medication that I can think of - nothing works. Maybe I'll try calling my old doc, hopefully he'll help me out!

  call your old doctor, ask for a refill and have him call it in to Nationwide pharmacy like Walgreen's or Walmart.

or, call around hospitals where you now live and ask about a clinic near by. you will wait in the office for a doctor one day, but you don't have to choose a doctor.

I don't know if clinics have regulations on those types of pain medicine. They might, so try choice one first.

  It's NOT liver poison! Childrens MOTRIN is just an ibuprofen syrup. Advil is a ibuprofen tablet.

There is 100mg of ibuprofen in 5mL of the mortin. So for every capsule of advil u would normally take, have 10mL of the syrup. So for example if you take 2 tablets, take 20mL. Make sure you have something in your stomach though, because it can be upsetting to the stomach. If you have taken Advil before with no problems, then childrens motrin should be ok for you.

Sleeping off migraines is often good to. So take your medicine, and then try lying in a dark , quiet room. Migraines can be draining- good luck!

So, the doc put me on Sulindac with Advil, which made me even sicker to my stomach, along with some other bad side effects.

Now, he has given me Tramadol and I feel pretty good right now.

All they are in the same class of drugs or can someone give me some more insight as to the differences of Naproxen & Tramadol?

Anything special to watch out for?

  Naproxin and Advil are both NSAIDs or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. By taking both at once you are basically over-dosing because the two medications are so similar. I'm not familiar with Sulindac. But given your reaction, I guess it is a similar medication. Tramadol is not an NSAID. So you are not getting the overdose effect. Did you tell your doctor you were taking the Advil? If he knew you were taking it he shouldn't have prescribed another NSAID or he should have told you to stop taking the Advil. If you are taking multiple pain relievers, make sure they are not in the same class of drugs.

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. :)

  What worked for me is to watch your diet a week before and during your cycle. Drink lots of water. Avoid pop, sweets, and salt. Sweets, salt, and pop encourage bloating and cramping - which you do not want. During your cycle and if you have cramps, take a pain reliever. I personally use Pamprin or Aleve - Pamprin is meant to be used for periods. Aleve seems to do the job for me most of the time. Take as prescribed on the bottle - don't overdue. As you get older, you will know what to do to make your cycles easier for you.

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.

What are the differences among Advil, Ibuprofen and Tylenol?
How do you know when to take which medication ??? How about hay fever like aches and pain? My pharmacist told me to take Advil. My doctor told me to take Tylenol. What are the difference? I also know about Ibuprofen few months ago, my pharmacist told me to take it for hay fever like body aches and pains. I am very confused.

  Advil is ibuprofen. Unless you have ulcers or allergies, there is no particular reason to pick one over the other. It is just personal choice. I have a preference for recommending ibuprofen over acetaminophen; why, because it works better for me.

Can't find Advil Junior strength (100mg) tablets?
My daughter is six. She hates taking any kind of children's liquid or chewable medicines. She thinks they taste disgusting and I can't disagree. She doesn't mind swallowing pills as long as they aren't too big. The children's Advil junior were perfect but now I can't find them anywhere! The website directs me to several stores in the area but I've been...they don't have them. Does anyone know where to find the small, white, round tablets with black writing for kids? These are 100mg a piece. Thanks! I'm in Central FL by the way.

  Try looking for different packaging than you are used to. Last year regulations changed because it was said over the counter children's medicine was being too kid friendly and so kids were treating it like candy. Companies were told they could no longer market a product as "Children's" as a result.
The link below is from Tylenol, but all other cold/cough companies did something similar.
