  • Hello,
    since my answer is a bit delayed I hope that I find you well and thriving. You are wondering how many painkillers you can take in one day without mentioning the type of painkillers you have at hand, what is happening to you and you are in need of painkillers, how old are you, what is your health condition and what are you feeling (intensity and duration) and you need one.
    A practical advice would be to read carefully the instructions of the painkiller you have at hand, use them in moderation and if the pain endures you MUST visit a doctor or a hospital and they will guide you further.

  • Not all painkillers are the same. Depending on your age, gender and medical condition painkillers can act differently on you and, if you are not careful with them, they may be dangerous. My suggestion is to visit a medical doctor to evaluate your pain and its potential root to give you a more personalized advice.

  • Unfortunately I am not properly equipped to answer that question. I believe a doctor or a neurologist would be able to help you better. In any case, I would recommend you had a qualified professional closely monitor your pill intake. I hope that helps. Take care.
