Taking Oxycodone for pain every 4to 6 hours. Checked a few min ago and running a low grade fever. What can be taken for the fever?
For those with normal renal function below 60-65 years of age, Ibuprofen is actually seen as more effective and less intrusive on hepatic function (the liver).
For those with impaired renal function or of advanced age, Tylenol (Acetaminophen) is seen as more effective and less intrusive on the kidneys (renal system).
In short, Ibuprofen can be hard on the renal system, and Tylenol on the liver, so choose according to your own existing health considerations.
Most people think Tylenol is the go-to for fever, but that's primarily their own marketing. In the end, however, either one will do the trick.
