The patient should take two tablets of 200 mg strength Advil or generic ibuprofen. If this does not ease the problems after 3 hours, then two tablets of 325 mg strength Tylenol may be taken. These dosages can be repeated at approximately 4-hour intervals. The patient should make sure not to exceed the maximum recommended dosages that are stated for each drug, according to Drugs.com.
