Is it ok to take tylenol (acetaminophen) and motrin closer than 3hrs apart to bring down a shivering high fever?

It is safer than Motrin (ibuprofen) which is an "nsaid" (nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug) which can cause salt retention, hypertension, kidney damage and heart failure.

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?

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
