tylenol does not seem to help me with a headache and i dont want to kill myself by taking something that can be deadly with a blood thinner
I used the drug interactions checker on this site and all of the OTC pain relievers are in the high risk interaction category, except for acetaminophen. Even that can only be used occasionally, but not on a daily basis. I found that although it contains small amounts of aspirin along with acetaminophen and caffeine, Excedrin Migraine is in the low risk category, but should not be used on a regular basis. It is best to get your doctors OK before taking any OTC meds though. Hope this helps.
My husband had strict instructions of no NSAIDs at all. They also thin the blood and depending on your dose of warfarin you could get internal bleeding. This is really about dosing and only the doctor can say. We don't know what other conditions you may have.
Headache could mean your blood pressure is up. Best to get checked soon.
