Can You Take Tylenol After Antibotics
The two don't compet: Tylenol (acetaminophen) is absorbed from the gut and distributed through the body in a similar fashion to ibuprofen. They can be taken at the same time but i seldom advise so. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is broken down by the liver & removed in the bile. Ibuprofen is broken down & eliminated through the kidneys .The Ibuprofen is a 6-8 hour med while tylenol (acetaminophen) is a 4hr. Both every 8h sounds better than alternating every 4 if u must. ...Read more
How long do you have to wait after taking tylenol (acetaminophen) to take ibprofrin to break an infants fever?
At least 3 hours: Tylenol (acetaminophen) should be given every 4-6 hours and Ibuprofen every 6-8 hours. For fevers that are particularly difficult to reduce--fever itself does not cause brain damage, except to the anxious parents, except if very high (106-107) for a prolonged period--one could alternate the two every 3 hours for a short period (ie 12 hours of time). If not improving, see the child's doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No specific time: Technically, you can take Tylenol (acetaminophen) & Naproxen at the same time as they work by different mechanisms & don't interfere w/ one another.
