In brief: Depends
It depends on any other problems you may have, but in the absence of liver disease tylenol (acetaminophen) in recommended amounts is safe.
Also, in the absence of kidney or stomach trouble, Ibuprofen is safe as well. Neither should be used in large amounts or for a prolonged period of time without consulting a physician.
