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
Who knows?: Orthodoxy might align Motrin & tylenol (acetaminophen) as compatible classes of molecules. Likely no double blinded placebo controlled study of this matter. Therefore safety unknown.

Use combinations under direction of a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
