Celebrex And Tylenol
Is it true you're not supposed to take an antiimflammatory and tylenol (acetaminophen) together? I take celebrex and tylenol (acetaminophen) and wondered if I should give one up
I had a slap tear surgery 2 days ago. I have celebrex. Should I take tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen?
Tylenol (acetaminophen) prob. better: If you take celebrex, don't take ibruprofen, they are both nsaids (non-steroidal anti-inflamatory drugs), and should not be taken together, (can lead to stomach irritation, ulcers, and bleeding).

Although you are likely to have not done any damage to the liver if you followed the directions, it would be prudent to get some blood drawn to be sure. It is a simple blood test. If you are worried, I would try to limit Tylenol and avoid alcohol until you have the blood test. Good luck. ...Read more
Sounds ok: If a person had no prior problem with taking Vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) by itself, or either of its ingredients by themselves; and had no problem taking Tylenol #1 (acetaminophen and codeine) by itself, or either of its ingredients by themselves; then she should be ok taking Vimovo and Tylenol #1 together.
