Use Tylenol alone: For fever, find out the cause of the fever, then use tylenol (acetaminophen) alone. It is safer than Motrin (ibuprofen) which is an "nsaid" (nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug) which can cause salt retention, hypertension, kidney damage and heart failure. Don't drink excessive amounts of alcohol, especially when taking tylenol. ...Read more

I've heard you can take tylenol \u0026 motrin when you're sick. How can I take both or rotate them and still be safe?
Typo?: Tylenol 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 @ 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
