Tylenol/Ibuprofen

Tyenol has acetaminophen, advil has ibuprofen (spelling on both??)

Anyway, I've got a terrible infection- ear ache, sore throat, neck hurts, head hurts... I just took advil but it doesn't help. Is it safe to alternate between tylenol and advil? I know it's not safe to take 2 types of medicine both with acetaminophen... but what if the other has ibuprofen?

Also, ti says to take tylenol every 4-6 hours... can I take tylenol now, then in just 2 hours take advil?

I need help I'm so sick...

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.

Re: Tylenol/Ibuprofen

I'm not good with US drug names but if acetaminophen = paracetamol then you can take it with ibuprofen.

I'd imagine that not staring at a computer screen would do wonders for your headache as well.
