Tylenol for Pain Ibuprofen for Inflammation

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.

I am a 33 year old woman and have been hit with a pretty awful case of tonsillitis. I have been prescribed antibiotics and am at my third dose. I have been taking 500gr acetaminophen (every 8 hours) scattered with and 400gr ibuprophen (every 8 hours)(so one of either every 4 hours or so) for pain and inflammation but I am still in pretty horrible pain. I can't eat anything and am even having trouble drinking liquids. Would it be ok to up the dosage? What would you recommend? Thank you!

You need to be aware that NSAIDs can cause Kidney Disease and should not be taken long term. I found this out when I was diagnosed Stage 3 and had taken an NSAID for over 10 years to alleviate arthritis pain.

I’m curious why were talking about NSAIDs, when I thought we were discussing ibuprofen and acetaminophen. What is an NSAID?

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. free discount card
