Tylenol And Ibuprofen

Keith Says:

I was told today, taking 2 Tylenol and 2 ibuprofen is equivelant to taking morphine for pain! Is there any truth to that?

Hello, Keith! How are you?

No, that is not accurate.

Alternating the two, say by taking Tylenol in the morning, then Ibuprofen 8 hours later can sometimes result in better pain relief, because it can help reduce swelling more significantly that just taking one or the other, but it will not be anywhere close to Morphine and doubling up on them, at the same time, could be dangerous, due to the toxic effects they may have on the liver.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Is it safe to take Ibuprofen and Tylenol together (short term)? If so, how much Ibuprofen would work? I have the 500 mg strength of Tylenol and wanted to have an idea of what’s safe (or the ratio) and how much time I should wait before combining both?
