What is the recommended advil dosage when using ginkgo biloba?

I cannot provide an exact recommended Advil dosage when using Ginkgo Biloba, as it depends on various factors such as age, medical history, and current medications. However, I can provide general dosage information for both Advil (ibuprofen) and Ginkgo Biloba. Always consult a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement or medication regimen.

Advil (ibuprofen) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat pain, inflammation, and fever. According to the National Library of Medicine's MedlinePlus, the usual dosage for adults and children 12 years and older is:

- 200-400 mg every 4-6 hours, not to exceed 1200-3200 mg in 24 hours.

Ginkgo Biloba is a herbal supplement derived from the Ginkgo Biloba tree, often used for memory enhancement, tinnitus, and other conditions. The American Botanical Council recommends the following dosages for Ginkgo Biloba:

- 120-240 mg per day, divided into 2-3 doses, with at least 24% ginkgo flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones.

There is no scientific evidence suggesting an interaction between Advil and Ginkgo Biloba that would require a specific dosage adjustment. However, as with any combination of medications and supplements, it's essential to consult a healthcare professional for personalized advice.
