Is it safe to take advil with tylenol?



According to the sources provided, it is generally safe to take Advil (ibuprofen) and Tylenol (acetaminophen) together, but it is important to follow the recommended dosages and consult with a healthcare professional before doing so.

Advil and Tylenol are both pain relievers, but they work differently. Advil is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that reduces inflammation and relieves pain, while Tylenol is an analgesic that reduces pain and fever but does not reduce inflammation [2].

Taking both Advil and Tylenol together can provide more effective pain relief than taking either medication alone. However, it is important to follow the recommended dosages and not exceed the maximum daily dose of either medication [2].

It is also important to note that taking Advil and Tylenol together may increase the risk of side effects, such as stomach upset, nausea, and dizziness [3]. Additionally, individuals with certain medical conditions or who are taking certain medications should avoid taking Advil and Tylenol together or consult with a healthcare professional before doing so [2].

In summary, while it is generally safe to take Advil and Tylenol together, it is important to follow the recommended dosages and consult with a healthcare professional before doing so, especially if you have any medical conditions or are taking other medications.
