    People are too quick to take a pill to feel better. Pills don't always work the way you think they will.

    Could be that the endless pill ads you see on TV play a role in the culture of addiction, too.
    He takes Flomax...and you are correct, prostate pills can also make you dizzy and create a fall risk problem too. He also had a bottle of blood thinners swiped off his table when he was in the hospital for a blood clot. Can you imagine that mistake?

    If I don't get rid of this freakin Head cold I have, I just may overdose on acetaminophen....(Don't know what it is, but, all the medicines that work, say "take no other product with acetaminophen....")

    Advil works better...it shrinks your nasal passages that are inflamed. My go-to cocktail for nasal congestion is Claritan D and 600 mg of Advil. If you are a Type 1 diabetic, Tylenol is not a good choice...too much kidney interaction. Protect your kidneys with diabetes.

    Be careful... LOTS of cold remedies have acetaminophen, and taking too much will wreck your liver. Take safe doses of Tylenol for your headache, Cepacol for your sore throat, Mucinex for your cough, and Nyquil to help you sleep, and you just downed a fuckton of acetaminophen.

    When taking cold medicines, ALWAYS read the active ingredients, and keep the acetaminophen down to a maximum of about 3,000mg / day. For scale, a single, two-tablet dose of extra-strength Tylenol is 1,000mg.

    My brother-in-law trashed his kidneys and liver with Tylenol PM...taking sometimes 6 at a time to sleep.

    * I'm not sure how this would work, but I really don't care.

    Just go purchase the real thing....the slender ones. LOL Another thing that feels really good is Vicks Vapor rub and bath. In the infant section of a store you will find the vapor bath. Run a tub as hot as you can stand it, dump a bunch of Vapor Bath in, and put a hot wash cloth over your face. Soak for awhile. After you towel off, rub your chest, neck and back down with Vicks and a warm sweatshirt and you will feel like a new man.

I do use it, but I restrict myself to 1 tablet a week only on the worst night. After that I'll take Aleve and a unisom.

    For headaches, I fine that Excedrin works best. It's a combo of acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine. The caffeine makes it work faster - but the catch is that if you take it for a nighttime headache, your headache will be gone, and you'll be wide awake.
