Yes, for short time: The previous answer is sound. To add: the 3,000 mg per day relates to the Tylenol (a.k.a. acetaminophen) component. Also check the decongestant drug that appears in both products. If it is the same, mind the daily dose. If different, it is harder to advise around doses, but know that there is little need for both, and they may raise your blood pressure. Safer take plain Tylenol with Claritin-D 24. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have cedar allergies no allergy medicine controls. Symptoms increased to constant post nasal drip w/sore throat. Tylenol (acetaminophen) cold wont help. Can't sleep?
Zyrtec, claritin, (loratadine) allegra, clarinex. Other allergy pill options? Year-round, persistant allergies. Wet in ears, post-nasal drip (sore throat).
Before you go : Looking for another allergy medication, i would keep the one that works best for you and take it diligently everyday with a steroid nasal spray twice daily for a month to see a big difference with just burst of meds here and there and only when you feel like it. If you have already done this, then it is time to see your doctor, possibly referral to allergist or ENT depends on what the problem is. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cedar: Cedar is a late fall, winter and early spring problem in many states. If meds are ineffective orally, i would try a mix of intranasal anithistamines and steroids. Oral or injectables should be saved for emergencies. Remember allergy is genetic and only immunotherapy can rebuild your system. I found that allergy shots help my patients. ...Read more
Yes: There is no medication that should be mixed with alcohol. The tylenol (acetaminophen) sinus congestion already has Acetaminophen for pain, so adding Ibuprofen to it should be unnecessary. It worries me when people who are sick are concerned about whether they can drink while their sick, and it indicates a focus on alcohol that might mean trouble. Most sick people don't want to drink. ...Read more
Rt tonsil swollen/sore, itchy eyes, stuffy/runny nose, post nasal drip. Just allergies? No fever. Dr or OTC allergy meds? Tonsil better w/Tylenol.
Not significantly: Tylenol (acetaminophen) #3 may help dull the pain. If you are going to take an opioid, Codeine is the opioid that is recommended. However, opioids are habit forming and carries their own dangers. Nsaids may help as well, but ergots and triptans are usually the drugs of choice to break a true migraine. Both tylenol (acetaminophen) and Ibuprofen also can lead to rebound headaches if they are not true migraines. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it safe to take nighttime sinus congestion medicine containing acetaminophen, chlorpheniramin maleate, and phenylephrine with delsym (dextromethorphan)?
Most likely: Naprosyn (naproxen) is not directly related to Acetaminophen so it would be unlikely that you would have a sensitivity to acetaminophen. If you've never taken Acetaminophen before i'd suggest taking a small dose to confirm it is in fact safe. If symptoms of an allergic reaction do occur seek medical attention quickly. ...Read more
