I take it at least 4 times a week.. I have really bad sinuses.. It's the only thing that works for me. If it is dangerous, does anybody have any suggestions to get rid of horrible sinus headaches?
Your doctor would be able to have the best suggestions for you.
Talk to your doctor, but just in general, taking it that often is bad for your liver and over time can destroy your liver
Ibuprofen (Advil) is a marvelously effective, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. However, it's chronic use is associated with a number of negative consequences. The most common problem is gastritis or inflammation of the lining of the stomach. It can also decrease blood flow to the kidneys and over time lead to loss of function. If you're using ibuprofen every day to to get rid of your sinus headaches, paradoxically the medicine itself may actually be contributing to them through a process call "medication overuse headache." I experienced this myself. When I quit ibuprofen, the headaches stopped too.
Bad sinuses. You mean blocked or infected? How can Advil help that?
Make sure to take it with food to lessen stomach upset. Also watch your stool for changes in color, anything black in appearance could be blood as Advil can cause stomach ulcers/bleeding. If you notice this, please contact your doctor.
Don't take it if you have heart troubles.Hyland's homeopathics are great.They have several for sinus.I use Allium Cepa. They are tiny tablets that you melt under your tongue.I also use a homemade nasal spray.In a nose spray bottle I mix colloidal silver with 1/2 water and a drop of peppermint.Don't do it right before bed. Do it 1/2 hour before so it has time to drain before you hit the pillow.
