Try taking 600 mg of ibuprofen with 1000 mg of tylenol. Do not take this dosage, if you have a history of kidney or liver problems. Do not take this combination more than three times a day! This is said to be more effective than a narcotic.
Dr. Denny Cho
Do not exceed 3000 mg of tylenol in a 24 hour period. Do not exceed 3200 mg of ibuprofen in a 24 hour period.
