It is important to keep track of the total daily amount of acetaminophen that you take. The next possible issue is if you have high blood pressure or heart disease.

Side effects from ibuprofen may get worse if you take fluconazole. If you notice new or worsening side effects such as stomach pain or heartburn, bleeding, difficulty passing urine or decreased urination, notify your health care provider. You may want to just stick to the Tylenol while taking the fluconazole.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) is recommended to be taken no sooner than every four hours, but the major concern is keeping the daily amount of acetaminophen to be under 3000mg. If you are still having pain and can take ibuprofen (Motrin), I would suggest using a different pain reliever.

What are apap-codeine drug interactions?
Generally speaking, apap with codeine (Tylenol with codeine) can interact with any medication that may cause drowsiness or constipation.  The codeine would increase both of these problems. If you take any medication that can irritate the stomach or GI tract, again the codeine can increase these effects. The recommended daily limit for Tylenol (acetaminophen or APAP) is 3000mg.

Although an interaction is possible, these drugs are sometimes used together. While the combination of Tylenol and aspirin (or any salicylate) is helpful to treat pain, kidney side effects are possible with high doses or long-term use. Limit the daily intake of Tylenol to 3000mg. Crestor (rosuvastatin) can be taken with either of these. One side note: Tylenol Body Pain is nothing more than 650mg of acetaminophen (2 regular strength Tylenol or generic).

Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) is a problem with both Tylenol Cold PM (acetaminophen, chlorpheniramine, dextromethorphan, phenylephrine) and mefloquine (Lariam). The interaction with the Tylenol product can cause more drowsiness, dry mouth and difficulty with urination. The problem with the antimalarial is possible heart problems. Taking these drugs together can increase the risk of a dangerous change in heartbeat or heart rhythm. Talk to your doctors regarding your medications. They may already be monitoring your heart functions.

Can you take Tylenol Extra-Strength when you are on phentermine?
Yes.

Is it okay to take Tylenol when I have taken Aleve?
You may take them together, but I would suggest alternating the doses with at least 2 hours between the drugs. Take Aleve with food or milk and limit Tylenol to no more than 3000mg per day.

Can I take Tylenol Sinus Congestion and Pain with Loratadine Severe Allergy and Head Cold?
The issue with taking both Tylenol Sinus Congestion and Pain (acetaminophen, chlorpheniramine, phenylephrine) with loratadine (Claritin) is the duplication of antihistamines. Chlorpheniramine is a short-acting, possibly sedating antihistamine, and loratadine is a long-acting nonsedating antihistamine. You may feel excessive dry mouth and possibly increased drowsiness taking both. If you only have allergy symptoms, stick with loratadine. If you have pain, fever or congestion, just take the Tylenol product. Take both only as needed.

Can I take Tylenol PM with tizanidine?
You could feel drowsy or more tired when taking these drugs together, because of the diphenhydramine in Tylenol PM (acetaminophen with diphenhydramine). Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how these drugs affect you. If you take plain Tylenol, there are no problems.

Can I take Tylenol Extra-Strength Rapid Release Gels with Paxil and Klonopin?

Can I take Tylenol PM and a CVS brand Cold and Sinus Relief medicine together?
If the ingredients of the CVS Cold and Sinus product are ibuprofen and pseudoephedrine, there are no direct interactions with Tylenol PM (acetaminophen with diphenhydramine). Take any NSAID like ibuprofen with food or milk to avoid stomach upset. If you have high blood pressure or heart problems, you should avoid oral nasal decongestants, like pseudoephedrine. Limit the daily amount of acetaminophen to 3000mg. Take both of these only as needed.

Can I take Tylenol #3 with Sudafed?
There are no direct drug interactions between Tylenol #3 (acetaminophen with codeine) and Sudafed (pseudoephedrine). They may be taken together.

Can I take Tylenol PM if I'm taking atenolol 100mg?
Yes. There are no direct drug interactions between Tylenol PM (acetaminophen with diphenhydramine) and atenolol (Tenormin). They may be taken together at bedtime.

No. Tylenol Cold (acetaminophen, chlorpheniramine, dextromethorphan, pseudoephedrine) has a severe interaction potential with amphetamine salts and any related drug.

I took Tylenol Sinus at 10 am. It is now 6 p.m., and I have fever. Can I take Tylenol Extra-Strength Rapid Release Gels?
Yes. You may take the Extra-Strength Tylenol (acetaminophen) within 6 hours of the Tylenol Sinus (acetaminophen with pseudoephedrine).

Can I take Tylenol and doxycycline at the same time?
Yes. There are no direct drug interactions between Tylenol and doxycycline (Vibramycin). They may be taken together. Take doxycycline on an empty stomach, without vitamins/minerals/calcium or milk products for three hours or so. Take until finished or as otherwise prescribed by the doctor.

Can I take Micardis with Equate, acetaminophen and metformin?
Yes. There are no direct drug interactions between Micardis (telmisartan), Equate (dextrose), acetaminophen and metformin (Glucophage). Take metformin before meals, without alcohol. Limit acetaminophen to no more than 3000mg per day.

I'm taking ciprofloxacin and methylprednisolone. Can I take Tylenol PM timed release capsules when I can't fall asleep?
There are no direct drug interactions between ciprofloxacin (Cipro), methylprednisolone (Medrol) and Tylenol PM (acetaminophen with diphenhydramine).  Take the ciprofloxacin and methylprednisolone until finished. Take Medrol with food to prevent stomach upset.  Tylenol PM should only be used if you can devote at least six hours for sleep. Taking the steroid late in the day could keep you awake. If this is the case, take all the daily doses by at least four hours prior to bedtime. Limit your total daily intake of Tylenol to no more than 3000mg.
If you do not have pain or fever, you could take plain Benadryl for sleep. 

Can I take Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom with penicillin if I am a diabetic?
Yes. There are no direct drug interactions between any type of penicillin and Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom medication, unless you are allergic to penicillin, or if you have high blood pressure or heart problems. Talk to your physician if you have heart problems before taking any oral decongestant.

Can I take Tylenol PM with Phenergan?
Tylenol PM (acetaminophen with diphenhydramine) can interact with Phenergan (promethazine) by causing Central Nervous System depression and additive drowsiness. I would suggest taking plain Tylenol with the Phenergan at bedtime or only take the Phenergan early in the day if you can. It is the diphenhydramine (Benadryl) part of the Tylenol PM that interacts with the Phenergan.

Does acetaminophen make your heart race?
Tylenol (acetaminophen) does not increase the heart rate by itself. There are several pain/cold combinations that have acetaminophen with decongestants which can increase the heart rate (race). When taking acetaminophen, limit the daily amount to 3000mg or less. If you have any type of heart condition or high blood pressure, contact your physician before taking any oral decongestant.

Can I take Claritin and Tylenol together?
Yes. They may be taken together. Limit the Tylenol to no more than 3000mg per day.

Can I take Tylenol PM with chlorpheniramine maleate?
No. Take one or the other, but not both. There is a duplication of antihistamines if you take the Tylenol PM and chlorpheniramine together. Tylenol PM (acetaminophen with diphenhydramine) contains a very sedating antihistamine, and technically the chlorpheniramine is considered mildly sedating. Due to the duplicative pharmacology and potential for additive side effects, combining diphenhydramine with other antihistamines is not generally recommended.

Can I take Lovenox with Tylenol?
Yes. Don't take aspirin or NSAIDs without talking to your physician. Rotate the Lovenox (enoxaparin) injection site.

Yes. They may be taken together at bedtime. The PM part (diphenhydramine) can cause drowsiness.

Yes. There are no direct drug interactions between Tylenol, amoxicillin and Cheratussin AC (guaifenesin with codeine). I cannot answer about "other pain reliever" without knowing specifically which you mean. Take amoxicillin until finished, and Tylenol or Cheratussin as needed.  The codeine part of the cough syrup can cause drowsiness.

I take 20mg of Benicar, and started Z-pak today. Can I take Tylenol for a headache?
Yes. There are no direct drug interactions between Benicar (olmesartan), Z-pak (Zithromax or azithromycin) and Tylenol (acetaminophen).  Take the Z-pak each day until finished. Take the Benicar at the same time daily. Take the Tylenol only as needed and limit the Tylenol to 3000mg or less per day to protect your liver.

Can I mix Pamprin and Tylenol Cold MS?
Take one or the other, but not both at the same time. Both have acetaminophen and an antihistamine. You could alternate doses, keeping in mind the drowsiness possibility, and limit your daily intake of acetaminophen to no more than 3000mg.

Can I take Tylenol PM while I'm taking Celebrex (celecoxib)?
Yes but if Celebrex is controlling the pain, there is no reason to take the combination drug Tylenol PM at bedtime. Simply take Benadryl (diphenhydramine), which will make you sleepy. This could save you cost and keep you from taking an unnecessary added drug. Take Celebrex with food to avoid stomach upset.

Can I take Tylenol Sinus Severe while taking albuterol and Paxil?
While there are no direct drug interactions between Tylenol Sinus Severe Congestion (acetaminophen,guaifenesin and pseudoephedrine), albuterol (Ventolin/Proventil/ProAir) and Paxil (paroxetine), there can be additive side effects between the Tylenol product and albuterol. The decongestant (pseudoephedrine) in the Tylenol and albuterol both can cause jittery nervousness and problems for people with high blood pressure or heart disease. Talk to your physician if you have either of these issues.

Can I take Tylenol PM with cold medicine?
Not knowing what "cold medicine" you mean, I would suggest NO. Tylenol PM has acetaminophen and diphenhydramine, a fever/pain reducer and an antihistamine. Talk to your pharmacist when you need to select an over-the-counter medication.

Can I take Tylenol Cold with Zyrtec and Delsym?
There are no direct drug interactions between Tylenol Cold (acetaminophen w/diphenhydramine), Zyrtec (cetirizine) and Delsym (dextromethorphan), but there is a duplication of therapy. Tylenol Cold contains an antihistamine. Zyrtec is an antihistamine. Check the label of your Tylenol, as there are several formulations with the name Tylenol Cold. If yours has an antihistamine, only take it at bedtime. If you take the Zyrtec for allergies, take it in the morning. This is a long-lasting nonsedating antihistamine. Drink plenty of water, and take Delsym and Tylenol as needed.

Can I take Robitussin and Tylenol Cold Nighttime in the same day?

It's important to know the complete ingredients in medications, because of the multiple formulas of Robitussin and Tylenol Cold products. If it's plain Robitussin (guaifenesin) and regular Tylenol Cold (acetaminophen, chlorpheniramine, dextromethorphan, pseudoephedrine), they are fine together. Duplication of ingredients can easily happen, however, when mixing Tylenol and Robitussin products. Have your pharmacist help choose the proper over-the-counter medication.

Can I take acetaminophen for headaches if I am taking colchicine for a gout attack?
Yes. Drink plenty of water with the colchicine, and follow your physician's instruction on the proper amount and length of time to take this drug. Never take more than 3000mg acetaminophen per day. Ask your doctor for a list of foods to avoid, as some foods may trigger gout attacks or make you more likely to have an attack.

Is it OK to take 0.5 Mirapex and 800mg ibuprofen at the same time?
Yes. Always take the ibuprofen with food or milk to protect the stomach and take only as needed. Mirapex has several indications and depending on the diagnosis could be taken 1 to 3 times daily. The dose is usually started low and tapered upward until the expected result is found. Mirapex can cause sleepiness, dizziness, confusion and unusual dreams. Be careful if you must be alert. Do not stop or change the dose of  Mirapex without the doctor's advice.

Can Tylenol Cold and Sinus be taken with Zyrtec?
The names of the Tylenol products change quite frequently, and currently there is not a Tylenol product with the name Tylenol Cold and Sinus. Most Tylenol cold products have some combination of antitussive, decongestant, antihistamine and acetaminophen. Check your container for the ingredients. If there is an antihistamine (usually chlorpheniramine or diphenhydramine), then do not take Zyrtec (cetirizine), which is an antihistamine. If you have high blood pressure or heart problems, do not take the Tylenol product if there is a decongestant (usually pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine). The decongestant could increase blood pressure or put a strain on your heart. For over-the-counter medications, ask the pharmacist to help in making the right selection. Always carry a list of your medications with you. Always read the packages and heed the warnings if they apply to you.

My father is on MS Contin 30 mg every 12 hours. Can he take Tylenol #3 in between his 12 hour doses of the MS Contin?
MS Contin is a long-acting morphine pain reliever. Frequently, there is "breakthrough" pain. Many physicians order an immediate-release pain reliever to help. Only give the Tylenol #3 (acetaminophen with codeine) if this is prescribed for your father. The added codeine can cause additional drowsiness. Limit acetaminophen to 3000mg in 24 hours. If both medications were not prescribed by the same physician, contact the prescriber of the MS Contin before giving any Tylenol #3.

Can I take Tylenol PM while I am taking ciprofloxacin and metronidazole?
Yes. Take the metronidazole with food or milk. This drug will leave an unusual taste in your mouth. If you are taking Tylenol PM just to help sleep, consider taking plain diphenhydramine (Benadryl). This is the only part of this combination drug that will make you sleepy. Taking Tylenol (or any drug) without a reason is not a good idea. Take the ciprofloxacin and metronidazole until finished.

Yes. Tylenol PM is only indicated for use at bedtime for people who cannot sleep due to pain. Methylprednisolone is normally used for an allergy reaction or rash. Take it with food or milk.

Limit daily amount of Tylenol to no more than 3000mg. Take methylprednisolone as directed until finished.

Can I take Tylenol for a headache while taking Lipitor?
Yes. One concern would be regarding liver enzymes and function. Have you been taking the Lipitor a long time? Does your prescribing physician take regular blood tests for liver function? Both of these drugs may affect the liver. With Tylenol, it is more dose related (over 3000mg per day) but with Lipitor, it may happen at any dose. If you must take Tylenol (aspirin would be a better choice if you can take it), take the least amount you can to stop the headache. If you have to take multiple doses of Tylenol, I would suggest call your doctor.

Can I take Flexeril and Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom Night Time at the same time?

Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil (ibuprofen) could be taken together, but I have found that alternating is a better therapy. By alternating, I mean take the proper dose for you of each every six to eight hours. If you follow the six-hour frequency, that would be take a Tylenol dose, 3 hours later an Advil dose, then 3 hours later another Tylenol dose on and on as needed. Every eight hours would be a Tylenol dose followed by an Advil dose 4 hours later, then another Tylenol dose in 4 more hours and so on. Take the Advil with food or milk to avoid stomach upset.

There is a drug interaction between Tylenol PM (acetaminophen with diphenhydramine) and metoprolol ER (Toprol XL). Diphenhydramine in Tylenol PM affects the metoprolol such that there can be an increase in the plasma concentration of the beta blocker. This can cause the heart rate to fall to a very low level. Avoid antihistamines with beta blockers. If you take metoprolol in the morning and only use Tylenol PM at bedtime, 12 or more hours later, the likelihood of the interaction causing a problem is greatly reduced. The Tylenol part is not the problem, so if you are having difficulty sleeping due to pain, try taking plain Tylenol and see if this helps.

There are a couple of worries with this group of medications. The Glucophage (metformin) and warfarin (Coumadin) are fine together. The problems begin with the addition of Tylenol (acetaminophen). Concurrent use of acetaminophen and warfarin may result in an increased risk of bleeding. Unfortunately, Tylenol is the safest nonprescription pain and fever drug with warfarin. Watch for unusual bruising or bleeding. Glucotrol (glipizide) and warfarin may result in an increased risk of hypoglycemia.

Zithromax (azithromycin) is an antibiotic normally given for a five-day course of therapy. Motrin (ibuprofen) is an NSAID for pain, fever or inflammation. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is for pain and fever. If the Zithromax upsets your stomach, the Motrin could aggravate the problem. Take with food or milk.

Can I take Claritin 12-Hour and then take Tylenol? How about Mucinex DM, Claritin 24-hour and Tylenol?
Yes, but you cannot take Claritin at all if you have prostate issues. Claritin (loratadine) is an antihistamine. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a pain- and fever-reducer. Mucinex DM  is guaifenesin with dextromethorphan. Follow dosing directions on the labels. Drink extra liquids. Limit Tylenol to 3000mg per day or less to avoid changes in liver function.

Can I take Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom Nighttime with Mucinex?
There are a couple Tylenol multi-symptom nighttime products. None of them that I found have an expectorant included. If you have the plain Mucinex (guaifenesin) then yes, you may take the two together. Drink extra fluids to help thin the secretions.

After surgery, instead of taking 2 hc-ibuprofen at once, can I take one and then a couple of hours later take a Tylenol #3?
I assume you mean hydrocodone/ibuprofen and Tylenol with codeine. Talk with your physician about taking the Tylenol with codeine. Some doctors suggest alternating various pain relievers for added affect or if the patient has stomach issues that would be affected by ibuprofen (NSAID).

Can I take acetaminophen with codeine and prochlorperazine 5mg together?
As with many drugs such as these, a narcotic pain reliever and an anti-nausea/anti-anxiety product, there are no specific drug interactions. But taking them together you may find an increased central nervous system depression, sedation or loss of alertness. Be careful if you must drive or operate any machinery.
