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.
