Tylenol and Ibuprofen

I was told today, taking 2 Tylenol and 2 ibuprofen is equivelant to taking morphine for pain! Is there any truth to that? ## Hello, Keith! How are you? No, that is not accurate. Alternating the two, say by taking Tylenol in the morning, then Ibuprofen 8 hours later can sometimes result in better pain relief, because it can help reduce swelling more significantly that just taking one or the other, but it will not be anywhere close to Morphine and doubling up on them, at the same time, could be dangerous, due to the toxic effects they may have on the liver. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I need to know for a 15 yr old weighing 126lbs, is it safe for her to take two Tylenol 500mg and two Ibuprofen 200mg, which is a total of 1,400 mg at once? ## Is it safe to take Ibuprofen and ...

Light blue oblong pill no imprint

The pill has absolutely no imprint on it, is about the size of a tylenol Thank you! I have suspicions it is illicit ## Still hoping for any answers. My daughter found this pill in our home after her boyfriends visit. He has a history of drug abuse, but swears he is clean now. Finding a pill that fell out of his pocket makes us suspicious. Any way to have the pill analyzed free? ## I'm sorry, I don't know of any way to have it analyzed for free and without an imprint, it is impossible to positively identify it. With no imprint, I can be sure it is not a legal US prescription medication, but otherwise, it could be anything, even just a multi-vitamin. ## They could be 2mg xanax - Denver brand in argentina. No way to prove it unless you have it lab analyzed. ## I concur ... 2 mg alp...

how does chemically treated hair affect a test

How does chemically treated hair affect a hair test? I took about 4 (no more than 6) tylenol w/ codeine pills. About four weeks later i took a hair test but three days before the test, i permed my hair. ## When the lab gets the hair sample they run it through a chemical wash that washes off all external contaminants. Since a hair test is meant to show consistent use over time it is possible that the small amount you took won't show up. ## If I took 2 xanex and a half of a vicodin will I pass a hair test

Gum infection/ pulse

Hi. I have gum infection due to my wisdom teeth. I am pregnant so I can get them extracted now . But my dentist prescribed Tylenol and amoxicillin now the question is my gum turned red like it was bloodshot after my first dosage of the antibiotics then the next day I discovered that it became really soft and had like a pulse... few hours later blood and what not came out of the pulse and it felt numb like I wasn't feeling any pain again but it's still swollen a bit . Is that it healing? Or I should be worried ## It sounds like you had an abscess infection, and it drained. I experienced many of them, myself, before I finally got rid of all my teeth and got dentures. You should definitely finish the antibiotics, and consult your doctor, or dentist, if you experience any other prob...

Butalbital Apap Caffeine with Tylenol

I am pregnant and I'm taking butalbital + apap (325mg) + caffeine. My doctor says it's ok. Can I take tylenol along with it? ## Do NOT take Tylenol or any other brand of acetaminophen with any other drug containing it. You can accidentally overdose. FDA has recently come out with a "black box" warning about this. Please do a search for Butalbital and you should find the same article regarding acetamenophin and the FDA. ## Diane is correct, in this medication, APAP is just medical speak for Acetaminophen. You can read more about the dangers of overdosing on it here NCBI Acetaminophen Hepatoxicity. Why do you feel you also need Tylenol?

Doctors who will prescribe pain medication in rhode island

I am looking for an MD or Pain clinic that will prescribe pain medication in Rhode Island. I have 4 herniated discs, nerve damage in my leg, severe migraines. My former Md said that he could not longer prescribe due to the regulations, I dont want to have to move, that would be crazy to have to go through that, but I also do not want to continue living night and day in Agony, with not one Md that has any compassion, it seems all they care about is to look out for themselves, I only take 2 pain medications that I believe are both in class 1, but when you talk to a doctor about pain, they tell you to take tylenol. I am tired of theses doctors just caring about themselves, if you have a patient like myself, that has the MRI's and Catscans to show what my pain level is, they should be a...

Rumoquin pill information

It's a round lavender pill with no imprint on the pill itself. ## Sorry, I can't find anything under that name in prescription databases or otherwise. If there are no imprints on the pill, then it is not a prescription drug from the US, of any kind. All prescriptions sold legally in the US must have, by law, a unique imprint for ID purposes. And I am afraid that since I can't find that name listed anywhere, I am unable to tell you anything about this, sorry. ## Without Rumoquin NF I literally could not get out of bed and walk in the morning for almost an hour. I lived in Mexico for 8 years and suffer with arthritis in all the joints of both legs and my right hand. This is not a pain killer. It is the best anti-inflamatory I have ever used. When I returned to live in the US I...

Will Heroin, Tylenol 3 with codeine, and Percocet show up as the same thing on a 8 panel drug test?

This is a mouth swab test. The person is on all of these drugs the day before the test, Please no recovery advice, I am doing research for my paper. ## Okay, for specific information on testing, it depends what type of test they have ordered from the lab. A basic test would just show the presence of opiates, however, there are tests that can show the specific ones and how much of them are present in the body. And as to having done them the day before, while there isn't a precise time frame, most narcotics are only detectable in a saliva test for about 6 hours after taking them, except for the Codeine, which can be detectable for up to 12 hours. ## I have to take a drug screen tomorrow afternoon, & I was prescribed tylenol #3 w/ codeine , 300-30mg.. I am being tested because i to...

The reason I'm asking is because the erosion from GERD can sometimes cause this, since it exposes nerves that radiate to that area. Whenever mine acts up, I end up with pain that radiates to that same area on my right side, but after taking something to reduce the acid and let it heal for a few days, it usually stops. Do you take the medications with a full, 8 ounce glass of water? Do you ever get heart burn? Frequent...

Narrow white coated tablet that's light brown inside

Hi, I found this white tablet (not a capsule). It’s a bit narrower and longer than most. Broken in half, the inside is a light brown color and has a peculiar smell (inside, once broken). An exhaustive search online yields nothing that tells me what it definitely could be. Anyone know? ## Btw it’s more of an oblong shape than oval, similar to an excedrin or tylenol, just slightly narrower and slightly longer. ## Also, it has no markings. No imprint or numbers or anything like that. It also lacks any kind of scoring. ## Hello Jimbo, In the United States all perscription and over the counter drugs are required by the FDA to have an imprint. If the pill that you found does not have an imprint it is possible that it is some sort of vitamin, energy pill or a foreign drug. If you a...

Sublingual drug usage and inactive ingredients

When you have the option of taking a drug sublingually, does taking it in that fashion in any way dissolve away or lessen the impact of the inactive ingredients, rendering the intended drug effects more equal between brands? ## I'd also like to add whether the bioavailability of the drug between two brands becomes more identical when the drug is administered sublingually as opposed to swallowed. ## Hello Schleprock, All routes of administration of the same dosage of a drug regardless of brand are required by the FDA to meet a standardized number of the active ingredient entering your blood stream. For example all generic versions of 100mg tylenol (acetaminophen), regardless of administration route, are required by the FDA to have +/- 20% of amount of acetaminophen in your blood stre...

Doctors willing to prescribe heavy pain meds for my back and arthritis

Naturally I have a high tolerance for pain meds and a low tolerance for alcohol. Going on 9 months no alcohol as a health choice. I went and had a MRI done a week ago and still waiting for the results. Ibuprofen 800 mg - no way am I taking that much crap every day. My doc said she doesn't prescribe pain meds. Funny... So I'm here, I'll have the updated scan on my back and hope to know a good doctor that can help me with a better value of life. I would just rather take a little bit of something that works than hundreds of milligrams Tylenol. Isn't Ibuprofen 800mg a pain killer? ## Pain meds addictive as we know. Lots of people that live with pain. From experience don't get regular refills of opiate, you'll pay the piper eventually...that day will come. That's ...

Purple And White Capsule With No Markings

Found a Dark purple (half) and white (half) capsule no imprint. Anyone have a clue what this is? ## If there are no markings, it will most likely be difficult to narrow down what it contains. We can rule it out as being a U.S. approved and manufactured prescription product, since they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification. The greatest likelihood is that it's something available over the counter. However, there is also a chance that it could be something specially done by a compounding pharmacy, since they also use blank capsules, or it could be a foreign medication. Does anyone else recognize this capsule? ## Thank you for the info. ## This is Tylenol/codeine from Mexico most probably. ## Women's Thrive level capsule. Purple and white no markings. ## ...

white oblong pill with L583 on one side

Was looking through my meds for Tylenol for arthritis & back pain (deteriorating spinal column) and found a vial of white oblong pills with L583 on one side. Are these Tylenol? ## I found pills meeting that description in my container of Kirkland Acetaminophen 650 mg. (Arthritis Pain relief) pills. ## From what I understand all of the imprints with "L" followed by three digits (e.g. L484, L583, etc) are indicative of various over-the-counter products; often manufactured by LNK International Inc. As far as the pill identity is concerned, it could be Acetaminophen as post #1 suggested, but I just came across a Kirkland Acetaminophen 650mg pill with a National Drug Code of 63981-544 that bears an imprint: L544 as opposed to L583. The NDC code points to a brand called "Kirkl...

Clear orange capsule with orange powder

Please tell me what this is? Someone told me it was a pain pill. I broke my leg and someone give theses to me but I'm not taking something if I don't know what it is. ## Hello Lesa, I may be able to help you but I might need a bit more information regarding the pill. Does the pill have any markings on it? I won't be able to give you an accurate answer without that information. Just in case I will provide you with some useful information to make a more informed decision on what it might be and how you may want to deal with it. In the U.S. the FDA requires that all controlled medication be identifiable through it's marking/imprint. If this medication does not have an imprint we know that it isn't a legally controlled substance. Over the counter medication, vitamins, su...

U 37 Pill - Tylenol 4?

I thought Codeine pills had to show the strength on the other side like #3 or #4? What is U 37? ## No, it is entirely up to the manufacturer, they do not have to show any specific thing, it is just required that they have an imprint and file it with the FDA in order to enable identification, in case of emergency. The tablet in question is manufactured by Aurolife Pharma and they list it as containing 60mgs of Codeine and 300mgs of Acetaminophen. The NIH warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## What are the inactive ingredients in the u37 pill by AuroraLife Pharma?
