I just got my wisdom teeth out about 10 hours ago, and I was prescribed Ibuprofen and Tylenol #3. I am currently taking two Tylenol #3s for pain, but I was wondering if I could take one 200 mg Advil Ibuprofen liquid gels with the Tylenol #3s for swelling. Would I have any adverse effects from mixing the two?
This question has also been asked and answered here: Tylenol vs Advil: What's the difference?
My daughter just got her wisdom teeth extracted also. They said she could alternate every 2 hours between the rx pain med and Advil. So it shouldn't be a problem. What I did with her was give her the rx and if she was still hurting an hour or two later give her the Advil. She had hers out about 5 days ago and she's doing great now. You will be feeling better before you know it. Hope this helps. Best wishes.
