While on valproic acid (depakene), is it safer to use acetaminophen (tylenol) or ibuprofen (motrin)?

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. 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...
