Either. You can take Tylenol (acetaminophen) AND Advil OR Aleve. Do not take both Aleve and Advil as they are the same class (NSAIDs). If you wish for more pain control, you can take tylenol (acetaminophen) as directed & also take one of the NSAID's in between Tylenol (acetaminophen) doses. Don't exceed the rec. dose of either one. but you may take the recommended dose of each, just not within an hour of each other. Using them both increases relief.
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. Read more...
Just took one 800 mg ibuprofen 2 hours ago, and 2 Tylenol (acetaminophen) 30 min later. Can I take an Aleve now? Tooth pain is 10/10.
I'm currently taking aleve-d for a sinus infection. Is it safe to also take tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for immediate pain relief?
I took 16 Aleve pills, 7 advils, and 4 tylenols (acetaminophen) in the past 10 hours. How urgent is a doctor and what side effects may occur?
Is it true that when you break a bone is better to take naproxen because acetaminophen causes liver damage and ibuprofen prevents bone growth?
Not quite. There are some studies demonstrating evidence for poor healing of fractures with nsaids (of which both Naproxen and Ibuprofen are examples), but the risk seems to be small. Acetaminophen causes liver damage when taken in overdose. Unless you have liver problems or take it with alcohol or are malnourished or take more than labeled amount, Acetaminophen is safe & should not interfere with healing. Read more...
