So far I have always been able to stick it out until 24 hours goes by. But I think a day is coming when I won't be able to do that. Does anyone know how close together you can take Tylenol and Naproxen?
You should npot use these two drugs simultaneously, unless directed by your physician.The combination may cause gastrointestinal upset, as well as kidney/liver damage. Other side-effects, including overdose, include: heartburn, nausea, abdominal pain, ulcers, or even gastric perforation.
If, as you say, you feel "a day is coming" when you will need to use both in a 24-hour period, please discuss this with your physician before embarking on this potentially serious medicating.
I don't have statistics to quote, but my pain doc said it was fine to take them, e even at the same time, just don't exceed recommended doseages on each. They are not related to each other, don't have any ingredients in common. There are no warnings not to take them together. There are other OTC medications that put acetaminophen and other NSAIDs together, such as some migraine meds. What is the reasoning for not taking them at the same time?
What did you decide Thor and was it okay, I know its a long way down the line but I have just been prescribed both meds for TN and told to take both daily. No one said leave an hour between them, in fact no one said anything at all.
Just seems no point in helping one symptom if I am going to create another problem.
At the moment when the intense pain kicks in I sit crying with a blanket over my head.
would appreciate your feed back on this.
