Had a wisdom tooth pulled. Tylenol-codeine 300/30 gave me a bad headache. Wanting to take ibuprofen 800mg, but wasn't to sure if I can? Or how long do I have to wait to take it after taking Tylenol-codeine?
Before you switch your pain medication from codeine to ibuprofen make sure you have waited at least 4 to 6 hours between doses.
Despite ibuprofen being an OTC medication make sure it does not interact with any other medications you may be taking. Also, I would ask the pharmacist what an appropriate dose is & how often you can take it?
Lastly, keep in mind a common side effect of Ibuprofen is bleeding.
