YES: If you have to take the tyelnol more than weekly for your headache; see your doctor to find out the cause of the headache. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is removed by the liver so make sure you don't have liver problems or other medications that may interact with the tylenol (acetaminophen) or cause problems for the liver in combination. Your doctor should be able to help you identify potential problems.

A 48-year-old female asked:

Is it ok to take tylenol (acetaminophen) and aspirin together for a headache?

OK but..: For headcahe it is better to space tylenol (acetaminophen) and Aspirin 4 hours apart. Instead of Aspirin consider Aleve : it's longer acting (up to 12 hours).
