Customer Question

She took an extra dose of two 200mg ibuprophen. She forgot that she had already taken her 2 pills about a half hour ago. This is for post-op gall bladder removal surgery. She also has taken 1 Norco 7.5-325mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen tablet 2 hours ago.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Anything else I can tell the Doctor before I connect you two?
Customer: She had a bowl of chicken noodle soup in the past half hour, so she did not take pills on an empty stomach.
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and connect you two.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That is total of 800 mg Ibuprofen dose still within normal limit per dose.

2400 mg in a 24 hour period is considered safe.

She may wait about 6 hour from now to take her next dose of ibuprofen.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
