What are the differences between ibuprofen acetaminophen naproxen and aspirin?

NSAIDs and acetaminophenIbuprofen, naproxen and aspirin are all NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs.) Among other actions their main mechanism of action is to block a group of enzymes called COX (cyclo-oxygenase) enzymes. They reduce pain (analgesic), reduce high temperatures (antipyrexial), reduce swelling (anti-inflammatory) and make the blood less likely to clot (antithrombolic). As they're all in the same group, they all have similar side effects and risks, however the severity of each side effect varies across the drugs, for instance naproxen is less likely to cause heart problems than ibuprofen. Common side effects include gastric irritation (the reason they should be taken with food) and bleeding. Other drugs in this group include diclofenac and the coxibs (however these have more specific action).

Acetaminophen (paracetamol), is not an NSAID and acts via different mechanisms. It shares the analgesic and antipyretic properties of the NSAIDs, but in not anti-inflammatory or antithrombolic. It is broken down in the body by the liver, unlike NSAIDS which are removed via the kidneys, and have very different side effects.

Acetaminophen can be taken with an NSAID, however you should not take more than one NSAID at a time.

Does Straterra make you drowsy?

Hi there! After reading your question and several others as well, I'd like to tell you my experience with Strattera, especially as compared to Adderall. I started on 25 mg. of Strattera about 3 weeks ago, moving to 40 mgs. after the first 4 days. Strattera did make me feel a bit drowsy - not drugged like antihistamines can do, just like I needed a good nap. I didn't notice any dizziness, mood swings, nausea or any other side effects listed in the drug's literature, except a good case of dry mouth and a loss of appetite the first few days. In terms of sexual function, I feel I've actually noticed an improvement! My libido seems higher and I have no trouble climaxing (I should state here that I'm female, and don't have to worry about erectile problems.) Assuming there are no other psychological factors at work, I have a hunch that Strattera's anti-depressive properties might help improve a woman's sexual function, as a happy woman is bound to be a more sexually interested woman. One thing - unlike Adderall or other stimulant based drugs, you won't feel Strattera working for you for at least the first couple of weeks. Since it lacks the instant "kick" of a stimulant, it's effects are more suble, especially at first and thus easy to miss. I'm only just starting to feel Strattera working for me, which is a relief - I was worried I might have to wait 6 weeks or more to tell any difference. While increasing my Strattera dosage, I've been slowly weaning myself off of Adderall. While I lost quite a bit of weight on Adderall, there were side effects that became unacceptable: cold hands and feet (a fight-or-flight response) rapid pulse (124 beats a minute) high blood pressure, anxiety (had to back off from 30 mg. to 25 mg.), a daily end-of-day crash when the drug left my system and left me tired, confused, irritable, unable to focus or remember recent conversations, facts etc. and a daily morning rush of mild euphoria. That last symptom was the one that worried my doctor most. A psychiatrist, whose practice has a sub-speciality in ADD-ADHD cases, he felt that symptom could be indicative of a vulnerability to Adderall, i.e. a greater probability of tolerance, then addiction. And he was right. As I decrease my Adderall dosage, I find myself feeling a little regretful I won't have my energy "crutch" anymore. I expect I'll have some cravings for it when it's completely gone. And that's a little scary. An addiction is nothing to dismiss lightly. Substance addiction has wrecked many a life, and Adderall is a familiar name in 12-Step Recovery circles. Hope this has helped!

Yes because Vicodin has hydrocodone/tylenol....naproxen is an anti inflammatory medication. They are from two separate families of medication and are safe to take together. The biggest problem with this is that the vicodin can be upsetting to the stomach as well as the naproxen. Stomach and gastrointestinal upset is a possible side effect.

Ibuprofen and Aleve together?

Can I take Aleve with 800 mg of Ibuprofen for my back pain?

i don't know but i just did on an empty stomach

i guess we will find out what happens..............

VERY BAD IDEA. aleve & ibuprifen belong to the same class of drugs-NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). if you are taking the maximun dose of each drug you are essentially "overdosing". these drugs carry the risk of causing gastointestinal bleeding, so you'd be upping ante on this.

How do you take out a tooth?

First, the tooth should be COMPLETLY numb so that the patient does not feel any pain. Once that is accomplished, then the Dentist will use an instrument called an elevator to push the gums gently away from the tooth. When most of the gums at the top are pulled back the dentist will use another instrument that pushes the gums aways as you he goes lower down the roots of the tooth. When all sides of the tooth are loose from the ligament then the tooth should already be mobile and the Dentist can use surgical forceps to pull the loose tooth out. The worst and longest part is the numbing aspect...loosening the tooth should be a breeze in most cases.
