Can I combine 2 anti-inflammatory/pain reliever drugs? What are the max doses?
Patient :What are the max milligram daily recommendations for ibuprofen, and/or can I combine it with another anti-inflammatory pain reliever?
I have extremely swollen tonsils (suspecting viral tonsillitis) and the only thing that helps with the pain and swelling is 800 mg of ibuprofen. I just took my last pill (4th for today) and need to get some more of something to help. I am a college student, and don't have money for a doctor visit. I also have IBS and am concerned with the medications hurting my stomach.
