The muscle relaxer prescribed is not helping with the pain, can I take Advil or tylenol with the muscle relaxer?

A good medical practice is to call the pharmacy where you got your prescription filled - ask pharmacist if any issues between ANY med you use and the muscle relaxant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
