I was told that I can take advil but when I do I feel like I have some weezing and shortness of breath. Not bad, but i just want to be safe. Whenever I take over 81 mg of aspirin i feel the same syptoms along with a very runny and congested nose. Does advil contain aspirin or is it in the same family.
Thanks

mysticdoc :

Hello,

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

Advil is ibuprofen.

mysticdoc :

Aspirin and ibuprofen are both anti inflammatory medications

mysticdoc :

They affect the prostaglandin synthesis in the body which can result in wheezing.

mysticdoc :

Some individuals are sensitive to these medications.

mysticdoc :

Hence, it is better to avoid advil given these symptoms.

mysticdoc :

Tylenol should be safe.

Customer:

Will tylenol help with frontal sinus pain from sinutitis as mush as advil?

mysticdoc :

yes it will.

mysticdoc :

The good dose of tylenol will be about 1000 mg every 6 to 8 hours as needed.

Customer:

Ok. Last thing. Is it normal when you think you have a sinus infection to feel extreme pain and pressure when bending over or sneezing until the infection is clear. It is a 10 out of 10 about three to four hours out of the day. I am on my third day of augmentin and nose spray. How long can it take to clear up totally.

Customer:

Pressure is in head at left frontal sinus where eybrow is.

mysticdoc :

Yes it is normal with sinus infection.

mysticdoc :

It may take 3 to 5 days to get better.

mysticdoc :

Sometimes, antibiotics may be necessary if the symptoms do not improve by a week.

Customer:

Ok thank you. have a good night.

mysticdoc :

very welcome

mysticdoc :
