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

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.
