Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

She can take a combination of solpadeine with ibuprofen at the same time.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It may be worth trying ibuprofen alone but the chances of that being a help is a bit unlikely.

Is there a real danger with my daughter taking codeine for more than 3 days and just to make sure sorry - she can take ibuprofen (200mg or 400mg) at the same time I give her solpadeine, it doesn't need to be spread out?. Instead if I wanted could I give her migraleve aswell as ibuprofen (200 or 400) at the same time. Obviously this would be an alternative - I wouldn't give them all at the same time. How many Ibuprofen (200 or 400) can she take in one day in combination.


Do you know why rizatriptan didn't help atall and made her feel worse?

No danger.

Yes thats right, it does not necessarily need to be spread out.

Instead if I wanted could I give her migraleve as well as ibuprofen (200 or 400) at the same time. Obviously this would be an alternative - I wouldn't give them all at the same time. How many Ibuprofen (200 or 400) can she take in one day in combination.
The maximum amount of ibuprofen that I usually give is 600 mg four times in a day which would be 2400 mg.


Do you know why rizatriptan didn't help atall and made her feel worse?
No, there is no knowing why it did not help. In some it helps whereas in others does not. So we do not really know for sure why this individual variation happens.
