Yes you can
Yes you can take them together. What I do is stagger them, where I take tylenol for one dose then when it's time to take another I take ibuprofen. Taking them both together helps better for pain.
Taking Tylenol 500mg with ibuprofen 200mg is fine to as they are metabolized differently. They have lowered the max dosage of total tylenol taken in a day to 3000mg and the ibuprofen total daily dosage when taken by prescription to 3200mg. If you have any specific other questions regarding any medical questions please ask.
They are safe to combine, but you should be careful about how frequently you take any NSAIDs as they can cause ulcers in the stomach or GI tract, amongst other negative side effects.
