Headache, diagnosed vascular, took medicine cured, again started taking saridon. Is it becomes overdose ?

I have a headache.. my doctor before diagnosed it as a vascular headache and he gave me medicines which really helps me..after few month my headache was gone, but later on it came back and it becomes worst than before because its more painful now, i have been taking saridon but im just concerned if it wont make me overdose because there are days that i take 4 tablets of saridon in just one day because my headache is always coming back and its really painful.

Saridon and other over the counter medications might not give complete relief from your headache.More over analgesics have various side effects like acidity might affect your kidney on long term etc.I suggest you to get a neurologists opinion and take proper medication instead of looking at short term or temporary relief from your symptoms.Hope this helps.Take care.

I have been taking 80 mg. of cholesterol medicine for 11 days by mistake. I was supposed to take 40 mg. Previously I was taking 20 mg. and doubled it, so by habit, I just took 2 additional pills of 40 mg. 1) What would be the complications having done this? My liver was a little inflamed with just the 20 mg. but my doctor told me to continue taking 40 mg but it wasn t that bad of an inflamation. 2) What should I do since I m overdosed? Should I continue to take 20 mg. for awhile or continue with the 40 mg.?

Hello. My wife was prescribed - Tizanidine / 4mg / 1-2 tablets / 2 times daily - for severe back pain yesterday / TUES. She took only one tablet initially at 3pm TUES. She took another tablet at 1am WED just a few hours ago. She just took another tablet at 4am. Has she mistakenly taken too many tablets at this time? She is 51 yrs old. She weighs 342 lbs. Before being prescribed this medicine, she was finding relief from the pain by taking - Acetaminophen / 500mg / 2 tablets -&- Ibuprofen / 200 mg / 3 tablets. Can she take these medicines with the Tizanidine to help with the pain?
