  • You should be okay to take an ibuprofen. Don't take tylenol, or any other acetaminophen med because it can be tough on your liver when used with alcohol.

  • There is a possibility the little bit of alcohol will either make your headache disappear OR get 10 times worse. I wish I knew what to tell you! As far as taking the medicine and drinking a glass or two I think that would be fine

  • Take 1 aspirin, 1 ibuprofen & drink some caffeine. Aspirin & caffeine help to thin your blood so that it travels through your vessels easier, ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory that will help reduce anything that might be swollen in your brain.

  • I would think if you take them now, you should be ok by tonight. Honestly a couple of margarita's and you might feel better.

  • I'd avoid alcoholic when you are already taking meds and experiencing a headache ...
