Katie Mui - December 13, 2017

Pretty much everyone experiences pain at some point in their lives. Sometimes it’s just a headache or a minor injury or brief illness — but for many, pain involves more chronic issues such as arthritis or back pain.

Many medications can help manage pain, with the best known being over the counter pain relievers like Motrin (ibuprofen), Aleve (naproxen), or Tylenol (acetaminophen). These drugs (except Tylenol) — known as NSAIDs, short for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs — work remarkably well for a variety of conditions. See More

Medications are an important cause of liver injury. See More

Is It Safe to Take Tylenol (Acetaminophen) with Advil or Motrin (Ibuprofen)?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 21, 2015

Why is the combination safe?
Acetaminophen is cleared by the liver, while ibuprofen is cleared by the kidneys. See More

For almost all of you, it is self-limited and will go away on its own.
