Yes but caution: Tylenol (acetaminophen) and alleve work in distinct ways to alleviate pain. But just because they are available over-the-counter doesn't mean they are entirely safe. Always take alleve with food, do not mix tylenol (acetaminophen) with alcohol, and keep well-hydrated. Ses your doctor if you have continued need for these meds. They may alleviate symptoms, but do not get at the root cause.

Yes: Yes you can. Tylenol (acetaminophen) sinus congestion should not have a non-steroidal anti inflammatory (which aleve is) in it.
