I have been taking 2 a night for two years, since my neck fusion surgery. I have numerous nerve damage in both legs with a Spinal cord stimulator to block the pain but the neck is another issue! I want to rest!
Can you take 3 Advil pm at night? I want to sleep longer than 5 hours.

The ibuprofen at 3 tablets wont hurt you but Advil PM also contains diphenhydramine (otherwise known as benedryl) and by taking this dose, you are over the recommended limit and sometimes, especially in high doses, this drug can have a paradoxical effect and will cause restlessness and agitation so it may not help you sleep and may actually make things worse. If two tablets are not working, you need to talk to your Dr. You might need a prescription strength sleeping medication.
