Yes: Because these 2 are from different classes of medication, it is fine to alternate Ibuprofen and tylenol (acetaminophen) for a short term basis.

No relationship: Advil (ibuprofen) allergy is relatively common; tylenol (acetaminophen) allergy is rare. These two drugs are chemically unrelated so you can't be allergic to both. Also taking both drugs on the same day does not increase your chance of a reaction to one or the other.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) safety: Typically 6 grams of tylenol (acetaminophen) per day is safe for most adults, which would be two 500mg tablets every 4 hrs. However, two every 6 hrs. Would be a better choice. If you are treating a sinus pressure headache, try adding an over the counter decongestant nasal spray such as afrin, neosynephrine, 4-way etc. Be careful not to use these products for more than 2 days as they can cause rebound congestion. ...Read more

Also make sure to get plenty of fluids yourself - both to keep mucous thin and ensure your milk supply. ...Read more
