I took a 325 Bayer at 7-8pm for pain.. Can I take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Aleve now or ibuprofen?

In brief: Aspirin strong

but rather short acting.
The plasma half-life of Aspirin is only 20 minutes Tylenol will NOT interact with it at all. The other medications do overlap with Aspirin for their action both in lowering pain/inflammation and also in effects on blood vessel (sl. increased fluid retention; interferes with aspirin's protection from heart attack/stroke) and on ulcers (they all add up). Aspirin goes fast
