Tylenol is Acetaminophen and not an anti inflammatory but only pain. I often take one of each every 6 hrs. They all can cause damage. If we don't get damage, we are fortunate for sure.

Naproxen spiked BP when I tried it years ago.

I make sure I have FOOD in my stomach no matter.
I do take 2 iburprofen at night or sometimes mid morning for may back. My doctor has never indicated I am overdoing it, so I feel it is ok. It would be rare for me to take more.

Don't be foolish. Do some research.

regardless where you read this, I will trust my doctor, the 2 nurse practitioners in our family and a few others to advise me about how much is safe. I don't think most of us are thinking in terms or take 10 or so a day. We all know any possible side effects, regardless how rare are listed somewhere. All we have to do is research a little.

Oh the doctors won't say one is overdoing it if one takes the min amounts, I was taking 2 every 6 hours just like they had me on in the rehabs but the docs don't know everything and what could be going on in our bodies. I have no issues and glad I'm taking 1 every 6 hrs since the HGH gel I'm doing. It's making a nice difference and less drugs.

A friend's doc had her taking 800mg and I'm not sure how often but she claims she ended up with afib due to the ibuprofen.

On the other hand the D.O. I see for bodywork wants me off all ibuprofen.

I was prescribed 500mg Naproxin twice a day for OA. At one point in time it was cheaper for me to buy Aleve instead of the prescription, so I started taking 2 Aleve, total 440mg, twice a day. Been doing that for probably close to 20 years. It's the only thing that helps the pain (back and hip). Doc just checks the liver panel.
