Yes: Tylenol (generic name: acetaminophen) and Motrin (generic name: ibuprofen) are different drugs, and can be taken together. Just make sure that you don't take more than the recommended dose of either drug, and that you don't take other medications (like cold medicines, or other pain medicines) that have Acetaminophen in them too.

I took 5 advils at 5 am 2 tylenols (acetaminophen) at 5pm it's 11 and I want to take 2 tylenols (acetaminophen) and 2 motrins pm for my toothache pain because is extreme is it bad?
Either: Tylenol (acetaminophen) is an antipyretic so it is helpful with fever. Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory and addresses both fever and inflammation. With stubborn fevers people often alternate tylenol (acetaminophen) (every 4 hours) and Ibuprofen (can be taken every 6 hours). Some people find one works better than the other for them. Be sure you are drinking well when taking ibuprofen. ...Read more

One speculation is to minimize exposure of the body to small pharmaceutical synthetics. Tylenol (acetaminophen) & Motrin both purport to treat pain. Use combinations under direction of a doctor. ...Read more

I've heard you can take tylenol (acetaminophen) \u0026 motrin when you're sick. How can I take both or rotate them and still be safe?
Typo?: Tylenol (acetaminophen) should be used every six hours, as should advil (400mg). If having bad aches or fevers / or both, offset dose times by 3 hours for one med. Ex.: tylenol (acetaminophen) @ 06, 12, 6p, mn and then advil at 09, 3p, 9p, 3a. If that uncomfortable, probably should see your dr. Or an urgent care. ...Read more

I am allergic to motrin. I have a really severe headache and tylenol (acetaminophen) is not helping. Is there anything else I can take that will help?
Yes, but...: It's best to see your doctor to figure why you're getting such bad headaches. Things like stress, certain medications, and particular foods can trigger migraines. There are prescription meds to help knock out migraines and daily meds if needed to prevent them.

My son has a fever of 103 and I'm having a hard time with breaking it. I have given Motrin and rotated with Tylenol (acetaminophen). What could this be?
Many possibilities: A broad range of agents, both viral or bacterial, will generate fever in a normal person. The fever is protective, increases blood flow and access to the blood cells that fight infection If the fever persists in spite of proper dosing of ibuprofen or acetaminophen, then that is just the nature of the illness. Encourage cool fluids and other comfort measures until and after the kid is evaluated. ...Read more
4 yr old/2 day of cefdinir, despite the fact that I gave her motrin 3 hrs ago she's still complaining of pain. Can she take Tylenol (acetaminophen) and alternate?
Healing takes time: With certain illnesses, such as ear infections and strep throat, painful discomfort can last awhile. You did not mention what she was on cefdinir for, so I am guessing about the illness. If it was pneumonia, there could be some pleurisy, or pain in the lining for the lungs. Changing to Tylenol (acetaminophen) won't make a difference. Try applying warmth to the area of the pain. ...Read more
Yes.: You can use either to treat the fever, but only if it is high. Do not treat the fever if it is below 101 and your child is feeling okay.

Who are at more risk are the ones who need Aspirin for protection who have preexisting risk. These medicines counteract the protective effect of aspirin. Tylenol (acetaminophen) does not belong to this class. ...Read more
