View Full Version : 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 :hysteric: I'm so sick... :(

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.
