Yes, you can take Tylenol while taking indomethacin.

The usual dose of indomethacin for pain in adults is 20mg 3 times a day or 40mg 2 to three times a day.
The usual adult dose of Tylenol for pain is 325mg to 1 g every 4 to 6 hours with a maximum dose of 4g per 24 hours.

As long as you do not exceed the recommended daily doses you can safely alternate the medicines or take together for added pain relief.

How did your Dr. prescribe you to take the Indomethacin?
I take Indomethacin for the Hemicranial Headaches & this medicine is a preventative medication. My Dr prescribed mine every 12 hours. If you are finding that you need additional medication to take with the indomethacin you need to address this with your Dr. so they can give you an abortive medication for when the headaches occur.

I take Zomig nasal spray which works Great for these headaches. Because it is a Nasal spray it starts to work immediately.
But there are alot of medications your Dr. can prescribe where you would not even need Tylenol. Talk with your Dr. for help.
I know how Horrible the pain from these headaches are. I also have Chronic migraines & I thought nothing could be more painful. But these Headaches are so awful... So I hope you talk with your Dr. & your Dr. usually has samples of these meds & sometimes you may need to try various types to see which works for you.
Take care, Kathy
